Refrigerated Non-Operational High Cube Shipping Containers
Insulated (Non-Operational) High Cube
Shipping Containers for Sale or Hire
Insulated, also known as non-operational, shipping containers are perfect for storing or transporting items that are best kept in an environment of moderate ambient temperature. They’re passively temperature controlled which means they can keep goods cooler during warmer months and warmer during cooler months without the need for power connection. Generally, insulated containers are ex-refrigerated containers that have had all active refrigeration properties removed. After being decommissioned, the containers still boast effective insulation and are guaranteed to be of extremely high quality, having been thoroughly inspected prior to dispatch. Boasting an extra foot of ceiling height, the high cube non operational containers increase 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 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.
When to Use an Insulated
(Non-Operational) High Cube Shipping Container
High cube, non operational containers are useful for a few purposes. They’re perfect for the storage of goods that 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. Given their high cube format, another common use for these shipping containers is for conversion or modification. If you opt for a standard container without insulation and without extra ceiling height, the internal temperature almost identically resembles the external temperature and the space feels cramped. Since these particular containers are insulated and taller than standard, they’re ideal for conversion into shipping container accommodation, granny flats, offices, workspaces and more. They’re able to increase the overall comfort, providing passive temperature management and eliminating the need for added insulation during the modification process.
Build and Benefits of Insulated
(Non-Operational) High Cube Shipping Containers
They are able to effectively regulate internal temperatures, despite external fluctuations, meaning whatever you store will be protected from risk of spoilage or discomfort (if used as a conversion).
The containers are constructed using 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 high cube non-operational shipping 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.
