Paignton Zoo Goes Into Space With Dainton Self Storage & Portable Buildings!
When Paignton Zoo started to run out of space, corporate supporters Dainton Group Services came to the rescue.
When Paignton Zoo asked if we could help them with their storage requirements, we were only too pleased to assist. The Zoo were familiar with the type of secure storage facilities at our Paignton Self Storage depot and required similar on-site storage.
Dainton Portable Buildings supply storage containers to a wide range of businesses in Devon and Cornwall and arranged for a 20ft shipping container to be loaned to the Zoo. We provided the transport and lowered the 2.4 tonne storage container into place using a crane.
Paignton Zoo – a registered charity – will use the container to store education and promotional stock and Christmas display material.
Bev Kemble, Portable Buildings Assistant Manager, said: "Dainton can’t provide new homes for elephants or rhinos, but we can provide extra space for the Zoo to store important materials. As SOS Club members we are proud to support the Zoo and its charitable works."
The container provides 150 square feet of storage (1160 cubic feet) and is weatherproof and secure.
Uses For Storage Containers
Shipping containers are made of corten steel and designed to withstand harsh sea conditions. Moisture treatments can be applied to prevent condensation and corrosion of goods. Containers are popular storage solutions for all kinds of businesses, including:
- Containerised storage offered by self storage companies.
- Storage for building materials and tools by construction companies.
- Secure storage of sports equipment by schools and leisure centres.
- Archive storage for paperwork and documentation by solicitors, councils and medical centres.
Storage Container Customisations
Storage containers can be customised through the addition of plumbing, electrics, water, insulation, heating, lighting, doors, windows and much more. These customisations make them suitable for many uses other than storage, including:
- Workshops or studios.
- Accommodation or changing rooms.
- In the construction of buildings as an alternative to traditional materials.
