Refrigerated Non-Operational General Purpose Shipping Containers
Insulated (Non-Operational) Shipping
Containers for Sale or Hire
Insulated, or non-operational, shipping containers are passively temperature controlled units that are perfect for storing or transporting items best kept in an environment of moderate ambient temperature. They are able to keep goods cooler during warmer periods and warmer during colder periods, however, this process is not actively completed – i.e. there is no power required. Insulated containers are ex-refrigerated containers that have been decommissioned, and their active refrigeration components removed. Every Insulated (Non-Operational) shipping container comes lightly used, however, they are guaranteed to be of extremely high quality, having been thoroughly inspected prior to dispatch. What’s more, the high cube format increases your internal storage space, without increasing overall footprint, meaning extra room for your goods or extra spacious living and work areas. Container Traders have a huge range of stock available for sale right across Australia. We strive for next day dispatch so you’ll never be waiting long for your container – get in touch with our friendly team to get more information or request a quote today.
When to Use an Insulated
(Non-Operational) Shipping Container
Insulated containers are useful for a few
purposes. Firstly, they’re perfect for the storage of goods that, unlike their
counterparts placed in refrigerated containers, do not require mechanical
refrigeration. Items such as cars, collectibles, important documents, wine,
leather and artwork can all benefit greatly from storage within an effectively
maintained, yet passive, ambient temperature. Large fluctuations can cause
these items to become damaged or spoiled, so insulated containers offer an
unbeatable layer of protection and security. Another common use for insulated
shipping containers is for container conversion or modification. If you opt for
a general purpose container without insulation, the internal temperature almost
identically resembles the external temperature. Since these particular
containers are insulated, they’re ideal for conversion into shipping container
accommodation, granny flats, offices, workspaces and more. They’re able to
increase the overall comfort of your conversion once completed, providing
passive temperature management and eliminating the need for added insulation
during the modification process.
Build and Benefits of Insulated
(Non-Operational) Shipping Containers
One of the main benefits of a non-operational shipping container is its ability to regulate the internal temperature, despite external fluctuations.
These containers are constructed with stainless steel interior lining, aluminium exteriors and a thick wall of highly efficient insulation which means the internal temperature stays approximately 5 degrees colder during warmer months and 5 degrees warmer during cooler months.
The insulated containers on offer at Container Traders are all standard built, meaning they’re constructed from the highest quality materials and are guaranteed to be wind, water and vermin proof.
When you purchase an insulated container from us, we’ll give you the choice of an optional refurbishment – including enamel based anti-corrosion re-painting and wire buffing.
They’re also built on the standard base which allows for super easy transportation and incredible portability, should you wish to move your container. The 20ft configuration also adds benefit to users, being the most versatile, and most popular, on the market.
They’re big enough to comfortably house an array of goods or be converted in to a spacious living or office space. They’re super versatile so it’s totally up to you.
