Absorpoles

Absorpoles for UK delivery ONLY In some circumstances, shipping containers can suffer from condensation. Shipping containers are particularly prone to condensation when situated in the open, where they might be subjected to the warmth of the sunshine during the day, and the cold of the elements during the night. Most condensation forms near the interior ceiling of shipping containers and can cause damage to whatever is being stored inside the container. Absorpoles are the answer to the problem of excess moisture in shipping containers. They absorb moisture and turn it into a harmless saline solution. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCOu4ifRU1M Absorpole Installation Instructions…

Buying new shipping containers – top tips

20ft new Shipping container

Where are shipping containers built? The vast majority – around 95% – of new shipping containers are built in China. Like with many industrial and commercial products, China offers cost-effective labour rates. The raw materials used in the construction of sea containers are often much lower in China than in any other country. Containers are produced in other countries, but if you see a shipping container on the back of a lorry, on a ship or being used as storage it will almost definitely have been built in China.
