Container Shelters Ideal for Makeshift Blasting and Painting Sites

A number of manufacturing and mining operations require blasting and painting to deliver quality products. These two tasks need sufficient space so that workers can reach equipment and move tools around, not to mention a restricted area to provide the necessary containment. Blasting and painting procedures have to be conducted separately from other operations to avoid the contamination of surfaces. A secluded site allows the use of various compounds that do not interfere with the other manufacturing processes. Container shelters make excellent temporary locations for the blasting and painting operations of an industrial or mining company.

Convenient Space Solutions

Building a site for your blasting operations can take a significant period, considering all the regulations it would have to adhere to. A temporary shelter is a cost-effective solution that will minimise the amount of work that a company has to put in to create suitable spaces. Containers do not need painting or other finishing touches to provide excellent service, and that means spending less on their upkeep.

It takes a lot less time to design an igloo shelter than it does to construct a regular space because an installer may only take a few hours to erect the former. Therefore, when under pressure to meet deadlines, temporary containers offer the most satisfactory solutions.

Provide Suitable Settings

You can have container shelters customised to fit the blasting and painting requirements of your business. The finishing operations demand specific environments, for instance, a blasting area must have enough ventilation. An installer can include filters and exhaust fans to make a shed more appropriate for these procedures.

No Space Restrictions

The design of container domes results in spacious locations for blasting and painting because there are no poles, walls or support beams crammed up in there. Workers can move around from one end to the other without worrying about manoeuvrability challenges. With the available space options that temporary shelters offer, a facility can be as wide as possible to accommodate the size of the machines.

Minimise Environmental Impact

One reason blasting and painting have to be done in an enclosed space is to prevent overspray and dust clouds from polluting the surroundings. With a container shed, you can ensure that the dust generated from sandblasting doesn’t escape to the neighbouring environment. A shelter can have access doors to guarantee that the dust finds its way out of the enclosure in an orderly manner.
