We are now supplying shipping containers to golf clubs and the leisure industry more than ever before. Primarily down to the convenience and cost-effectiveness of a shipping container versus applying for planning permission to construct further buildings.
Shipping containers are strong and secure, quick to obtain and ideal for a variety of uses. We’ve supplied containers to golf clubs who use them for the secure storage of golf buggies, greens keeper equipment and chemicals. They are also popular with wedding venues which may have large volumes of tables and chairs to store that may only get used for larger events. Commercial caterers like them for food storage, extra prep space or working areas and at times for pop up serving stands for summer events.
In some cases, we’ve added electrics to the containers so that golf buggies can be charged and in other cases, we’ve also supplied our heavy-duty racking that’s being used to store tools and chemicals for the greens keeper. Secure storage of chemicals is very important and golf clubs all have the same dilemma and that’s where to safely store their chemicals.
When ordering a container for chemical storage, just let us know what capacity bund you need and we’ll install the correct size of bunded flooring to suit. You may also need to check with your local planning authority about the use and location of your chemical store.
The real convenience that shipping containers provide to golf clubs and leisure clubs is the ability to move the unit from one place to another with relative ease. Here are some of the Golf and Leisure clubs we have helped out in the past:
In the case of the leisure industry, more and more sports clubs, tennis clubs and football clubs are using shipping containers to store equipment, goal posts, surf boards and more. We’ve also supplied a fully lined out container with electrics for use as a gym extension.
Some of our golf and leisure industry clients have opted for standard 20ft or 40ft length ISO shipping containers whilst some have needed a container that’s a specific length.
Others had very specific requirements that included fitting of personnel doors, security shuttered windows, ply-lining and a full electric package that included lighting, heating and 13A sockets.
For golf clubs who want to store buggies in containers, we can offer tunnel containers with cargo doors at either end so that buggies can be driven in and out with ease. We can also produce ramps for the containers to allow easy access through the cargo doors and personnel doors. And, if you’d prefer to have a lighter cargo door set, we can remove the original doors and replace them with a set of our flat panel (or easy-open) doors.
If you’re buying a used shipping container and would like it re-painted in a dark green or other colour, we can re-paint the unit prior to shipping it to you.
Another popular conversion option is to add wood cladding to the exterior of the container. Wood cladding can help make a shipping container look very smart on any site whilst helping in blend in with natural surroundings. Here are some of the cladded office and storage containers we have supplied in the past:
When using shipping containers for storage of equipment and materials that could be damaged by condensation, we recommend you have one of our shipping container insulation kits to prevent the formation of condensation .Our insulation kits are as effective as 55mm of polystyrene and can be fitted within about 45-minutes (2 people required).
