Hazardous Goods Freight Containers
Hazardous goods containers are also known as chemical stores and have been designed to minimise damage in the event of an accident or spillage.
They are constructed from a special type of steel known as corten steel and have what is known as a Bunded floor. This means that if there are any spills or leaks the chemicals will not seep out causing damage to the ship or the area where the container is stored.
They also have an anti-spark tread floor to minimise the risk of fire, and are well ventilated to prevent a build up of toxic fumes. A high-security lock box also means that the contents are totally secure and can only be accessed by authorised personnel.
General purpose containers are manufactured from either steel or aluminium and they are suitable for the carriage of any cargo that has not been classified as hazardous.
They have vents in order to allow air in, and keep water out and can also be supplied with moisture traps if you think your cargo is likely to produce condensation.
All our containers are extremely well secured and can be supplied with a high security lock box which will prevent any unauthorised access. They also have cargo securing points which ensures the safe transportation of your goods.
General Purpose Freight Containers
General purpose containers are suitable for the carriage of most types of cargo. Being manufactured from either steel or aluminium, they come with either plywood or hardwood planked floors and cargo securing points.
