Shipping containers for storage of Gliding equipment

After Shennington Gliding Club’s recent kind words posted on our Facebook page we couldn’t let their experience pass without a little thank you.

Needing some secure storage for their aircraft, but also needing to have a container that wasn’t garish and would blend in with the surrounding area, they opted for one of our 40ft refurbished shipping containers which came repainted in their choice of colour and included a high security lock box (padlock cover). They also chose add our Grafotherm upgrade to ensure no condensation will drip on the gliders or equipment whilst in storageGlider Stored inside a 40ft shipping container. Andy from Shennington Gliding club comments:

“The container was purchased for the storage of airworthy wooden gliders which are used as spare airframes. They take up too much valuable hangar space if left rigged, so the container is ideal for this purpose. If an airframe is needed, it can be assembled and readied for flight in less than one hour.  In addition we will store parts of airframes under maintenance within our workshop.

The option of colour was important, so as to blend in with the adjacent buildings and so was the option of the anti condensation spray to the roof to keep moisture to a minimum. This is particularly important for wooden airframes.

Shenington Gliding Club were very impressed with the service received and the quality of the container.”

This project has been another great example of the numerous ways to use shipping containers for storage, and with another shipping container successfully delivered to another happy customer, we’d like to thank Shennington Gliding Club for their help and the business, and with trial flights starting at £45 they must also share our keen eye for fantastic value!
