Shipping Container Walk-In Cooler: A Restaurant Food Storage Solution

Shipping Container Walk-In Cooler: A Restaurant Food Storage Solution

Restaurants that are experiencing growth may find that they need extra refrigeration space. This could present a problem for restaurants located in a building that they lease or at a location with limited renovation space. Additionally, many restaurants do not want to close their location for renovations or risk moving to a lower traffic location.  There are even some new shipping container restaurants opening in the hottest locations worldwide. 

So, what do you do? You cannot afford to stunt the growth of your business, but you also cannot grow without enough refrigeration space. 

The answer: Use refrigeration trailers for walk-in coolers at your restaurant.

The Benefits of Refrigeration Trailers for Restaurants 

A shortage of cold storage space can be solved by creating a shipping container walk-in cooler for your business. You can purchase a refrigerated shipping container and have it converted into a cold storage space for your company with little investment or time. These containers can be placed anywhere on your property and will maintain your food products at desired temperatures with ease. 

Portables360 offers refrigeration trailers for restaurants in two different sizes so that you can always have the room you need for your company. Portables360 can even customize your trailers so that you have two different temperatures in the same unit which will allow you to store different food products in one area. 

Using a shipping container walk-in cooler is also very convenient for your business. The container can be placed anywhere on the property and is safe and secure. These containers are airtight and you will not have to worry about anyone or anything entering the container when the door is shut. 

These shipping containers can be used as a temporary cold storage solution, or you can make them into a permanent fixture for your property. Portables360 offers leasing options as well as purchase options on all of their refrigerated containers.

Customize your Walk-In Freezer Container 

The beauty of this type of cold storage solution is that these containers can be customized to meet your needs. Shelving, lighting, and other specialty changes can be made to the container so that it fulfills all of your needs. Even if you are only looking for a temporary cold storage solution, you can change these containers to provide you with exactly what you need in storage space. 

All of our containers have been designed for even consistent cooling via Airflow Management. Any containers that do not implement this technology will be very cold in one area and warmer at the opposite end. This can lead to product spoilage or contamination. Our refrigerated containers have been designed to push the cooled air evenly through the container so that all areas maintain the same temperature. 

If you need to expand your cold storage space, even on a temporary basis, Contact Portables360 will help you find the right refrigerated container to meet your needs.

Areas around the United States are experiencing a shortage of schools. These same areas are also experiencing a shortage of space to build new schools. Some areas are just in need of new buildings since the older schools are no longer safe.  Or refurbishing them would be exceptionally expensive. What is the solution? A portable container classroom. 

Custom shipping containers have been used for everything from creating a beautiful home to creating a hydroponic farm. These containers have been used to construct hotels and to convert into breweries. Now, the latest trend is to have shipping containers refurbished into brand new schools. 

Cost-Effective and Environmentally Friendly Shipping Container Classroom

Shipping containers refurbished into classrooms are cost-effective and environmentally friendly. You are repurposing a container instead of allowing it to go to waste.  And you are also taking advantage of all of the benefits of these strong containers. 

Shipping containers are designed to move product across oceans. They must be extremely strong to prevent damage to the products contained inside. They must be weatherproof because many travel on the top deck of a ship and are exposed to the weather. These shipping containers must also be well-constructed to make sure that they can transport goods securely. 

Containers can be easily transformed into portable shipping container classrooms. Several schools that have already been constructed in this manner use between 30 and 50 containers to create a large school. These modern schools have everything to offer, including gymnasiums and other special areas for fun and learning. Once completed, the schools are stylish and interesting.

More Benefits of a Shipping Container Classroom

As an added benefit of creating a new school from shipping containers, you can expect the construction time to be less than half that of a traditional structure. The shortened construction time will be beneficial for communities that are already suffering from over-crowded schools. And for communities that have no school at all, the shortened construction time will be beneficial to the entire community. 

Custom shipping containers are also a great item to use for a school in an off-grid community. The environmentally friendly nature of these containers fits into the lifestyle and ethics of these communities. 

Many developing nations are taking advantage of these types of school structures. In areas where building materials are cost-prohibitive to build a school, governments and charity organizations are finding that portable containers are the perfect solution for their school construction needs. The schools can be placed in any climate and any environment. 

Schools of any size and any purpose can be created from custom shipping containers. All it takes is a little bit of creativity and the help of a great construction development team.   You can take a group of shipping containers and convert them into the perfect school.  What an amazing school project for budding architects!
