Container Panels Recycled Into Secure Fencing

Friday, 4th December 2009
Innovative companies are always looking at ways of recycling the mountains of old used shipping containers stacked in depots up and down the country. Whilst there is a fair amount of steel involved in their construction the cost of cutting a box up, removing the wooden floor, vents and gaskets then transporting the scrap to a metal recycling yard, in manageable pieces, often outweighs the value of the scrap itself. Entrepreneurs therefore need to find alternative uses for the units or their components in order to make recycling worthwhile and profitable. Container conversions are the obvious answer. Many companies convert boxes into site accommodation and RO units . Generator housings are another popular example, usually with the addition of extra ventilation. Exhibition stands can be manufactured very easily too and are able to be transported from site to site with minimal disruption. A stand could be used in London one day and at an event in Liverpool the next. Secure steel fencing is another outlet for old used shipping containers. Removing the side panels, reinforcing them and spraying in your chosen colour provides a cheap and easy alternative to conventional fence panels which can be expensive and only available in set sizes.
