Product Description

Absorpole is the market leading desiccant or moisture trap for a range of enclosed spaces including shipping containers. 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 they will not get in the way or take up any valuable storage space). Once opened they start working and will continue to eliminate any moisture from the air for approx. 12 weeks.

You can see a neat video on our Absorpoles here which should tell you all you need to know:

More Information on Absorpoles

Absorpoles are moisture absorbing products (desiccants) that are used in storage units and shipping containers worldwide. ‘Condensation’ and ‘damp’ are two words people hate associating with containers. There are various options and preventative solutions to reduce (and to some extent completely prevent) moisture build-up within your container (most of which are listed here in our ultimate guide for condensation prevention)

These Absorpoles are ideal for shippers and exporters who want to keep their cargo free of any condensation or moisture damage during their shipment. This could be to help remove moisture from shipments including Textiles and Leather, Wood & Paper products, Pharmaceuticals, Plastic, Glass and Metal, Electronics and Machinery. These shipping container moisture traps are extremely straightforward to use, making them ideal for large cargo shipping operations.

The amount of water can be periodically measured if needed once it has collected in the lower blue collector.

These Absorpoles also work very well for temporary secure storage projects. A common example: keeping your household contents dry when stored inside a shipping container during a house conversion or similar

Absorpoles are the market-leading shipping container moisture traps. Absorpoles are well established and have been in use in the shipping industry for many years. They are a very well tested and reliable product. Due to their length and the hook on top you should not need to use a ladder to install these in a standard height or high cube shipping container.

If you would like an example please click here to read about AGA Rangemaster and their experience using our Absorpoles for their export project. For for more information please contact us.


We recommend that for a 20ft container you use anything from 2-6 Absorpoles and for a 40ft container anything from 6-12 Absorpoles.
