In 2015, we had a Chilean client who was urgently in need of an emergency temporary warehouse solution to store extra industrial materials, like cement. He noted that their existing warehouse space, which was of concrete & steel structure, was insufficient in storage space; Moreover, constructing a permanent warehouse would be time and cost consuming, therefore we provided them with a practical solution – the construction of a lightweight, easy-installing, and convenient-disassembly temporary warehouse tent to meet their urgent needs.
Challenge & Solution: Tailored Temporary Warehouse Solutions
In regions with favorable weather conditions, the demand for short-term storage solutions becomes evident. Our Chilean client’s scenario was no different. They sought a tent structure robust enough to withstand wind speeds of up to 80 km/h and desired ample natural lighting for their daytime operations. Their primary storage method involved using pallets for stacking industrial goods, eliminating the need for specific height requirements or additional amenities like water gutters, internal cargo shelves, and advanced lighting or ventilation systems.
Given the local weather, the immediate need for storage, and the site’s concrete foundation, our L-Series A-frame temporary warehouse tent was the perfect fit. We incorporated 850gsm PVC for both the roof and gable triangle panels. Our high-transparency wall panels, while not fully transparent, ensured sufficient lighting. For added stability, we integrated independent foundations and cross columns on select sidewalls, culminating in a spacious 25x50x3m warehouse structure.
A key feature of our solution was the door system. To optimize costs and ensure functionality, we introduced a 2.5-meter by 3.3-meter roll-up sliding door, facilitating easy forklift access. This manual sliding door was both cost-effective and functional.
Our customized temporary warehouse solution not only addressed the client’s immediate storage needs but also showcased durability and cost-efficiency. At the heart of our business is a commitment to delivering flexible and efficient temporary storage solutions tailored to our clients’ unique requirements, ensuring uninterrupted business operations, even amidst challenges.
