Emergency Fire Response Equipment Chacon

Mr Box were recently asked by a client to build a bespoke containerised fire-fighting equipment store (or chacon as they are called in the industry).

This company supply equipment for the wind energy and offshore industries. Therefore there were a number of unique criteria that had to be met. The customer wanted a non-standard sized unit (25ft long). Mr Box decided to build the container from scratch rather than converting an existing ISO container.
