Frequently Asked Questions on Custom Metal Containers:

Why Customization of Metal Storage Containers is Important?

When it comes to choosing a metal storage container for industrial applications, customization plays an important role. It is a well-known fact that not all storage areas are created equal and not all standard metal storage containers can fit into them. This is where customized metal storage containers can make a difference. The customization of industrial metal storage containers enables accomplishing the required features, specifications, and quality of the containers.

Customization contributes to the management of the following features of a metal container.

  • Size
  • Space
  • Material
  • Compartments
  • Durability
  • Operational Specifications

All the above-mentioned factors can be adjusted based on the application requirements of the industrial metal containers through customization.  

Which Type of Metal Storage Containers Are Right for Your Application?

Industrial storage containers can be of different types. Based on the storage, and transportation requirements different types of custom storage containers are designed and manufactured by SPS Ideal Solutions. The following are the two important types among them.

  • Portable Storage Containers: SPS Ideal Solutions’ portable storage containers are specifically designed for easy transportation of products without jeopardizing product security. These portable industrial metal storage containers are designed for securely storing the products and transport them from one location to another without any transportation damage. The containers can have single or multiple compartments which makes them suitable for different storage applications.
  • Collapsible Storage Containers: Collapsible storage containers are foldable metal storage containers with features like drop gates, high load-bearing capacity, etc.

The choice of the right custom storage container will depend on your application requirements and different factors, which are discussed below.

How to Select the Right Custom Storage Container Size?

When it comes to sourcing custom storage containers, the most important factor is the container’s compatibility with the application requirements. To ensure the performance in compliance with the requirement, consideration of multiple factors is essential. Considering the following factors and implementing those in customization can help in selecting and manufacturing appropriate industrial metal storage containers.

  • Size and Storage Space: Since the primary purpose of the containers is storage, the space available for storing products must be checked. The storage space can be checked by checking the size and volume of containers.
  • Material: Today, you can find storage containers made of different metals. Of these, the steel storage containers are the most popular and they are widely used for storage in industrial areas. These containers offer the benefit of corrosion-resistance and excellent performance in harsh conditions.
  • Load Bearing Capacity: Industrial products may or may not be heavy. However, in the case of metal components, raw materials, or manufactured parts and products, the storage container must be tolerant to the collective weight of the products. The load-bearing capacity of the containers contributes to the durability and safety of operations therefore it must be considered.
  • Compartments: Often different industrial goods are stored and transported through the same containers. Therefore, having different containers for different products can prevent mixing or direct contact between the products. Sometimes, the products in powdered, liquid, or granular form may be stored together.
  • Type and Functionality: The functionality of the container depends on the type of container. If portability is an essential function required, then portable containers must be chosen. On the other hand, if foldability, quick product outlet, heavy load carrying capacity, etc are required, collapsible containers can be chosen. The functionality may include corrosion resistance, temperature sustainability, chemical tolerance, etc of the containers.
  • Durability: The durability of the industrial containers must be tested against harsh environmental conditions. The containers are susceptible to harsh handling during transportation, loading, and unloading. Therefore, the material, build-quality, and construction of the metal storage containers must be tested for durability.
  • Sanitation and Cleanliness: During storage and transportation, the containers are exposed to dirt, dust, oil and lubricants, chemicals, etc. Therefore, cleaning and sanitization become essential pre and post-application activities. The containers must be easy to clean and sanitize. To ensure this, complex designs of the containers must be prevented as cleaning intricate corners may be difficult.

With the above considerations in mind, the process of selecting and manufacturing custom storage containers for industrial applications gains enhanced clarity. By addressing these multifaceted aspects, one can ensure that the chosen containers not only meet but exceed the demands of their intended applications, contributing to seamless operations and heightened efficiency.

Why should I choose Custom Storage Containers over standard ones?
