Product Description

We supply the market leading range of shipping container moisture traps called Absorpole. These are moisture absorbing products that are used in storage units and containers. They are a really simple and effective method of protecting your goods in storage from potential moisture problems. Absorpoles are very easy to use and designed to be hung on the container wall (so it wont get in the way or take up any valuable storage space). Once opened they start working and will continue to suck up any moisture from the air for approx 12 weeks.

Post Brexit shipping info

Updated 14/01/2020

These goods are shipped from Northern Ireland.

Currently shipments to mainland UK are running smoothly, but we are currently suggesting to expect a 3-5 working day lead time in the short term as the shipping situation from NI is currently very fluid and delays may be experienced at short notice. The same also applies for deliveries into ROI

Currently there are no price increases due to shipping costs and problems.

We have very good stocks in hand locally and stand ready to help with any orders. We will update this section if things change, but please plan for slightly longer deliveries in the short term where possible.
