Convenient Portable Storage Solutions in the Combat Against COVID-19
April 15, 2020 at 5:15 PM
Right now, essential businesses are learning to do business in ways they never dreamt they'd have to. And other businesses have been put on hold indefinitely.
As part of the RedGuard family, SiteBox has been providing workplace storage and mobile office space since 1998. In 2005, we started focusing on safe space, after a refinery accident necessitated the birth of the blast-resistant building industry. We championed that cause, and now you could say that, as a company, we are the leaders in providing a variety of workplace safe spaces.
Safety is part of our culture and with the urgent healthcare crisis happening in the world today, we're prepared to help. You've probably gotten a lot of messages lately about what companies are doing to stay safe. We have a continuity plan in place and as a provider of an essential service, we wanted to let you know that we are still here and still working.
Our customers have always had creative uses for our container storage containers and ground level offices, and in this time of crisis, that still rings true. We've been busy filling those orders, but wanted to reach out with a few examples of how we can support your needs, whether it's extra space for people or the storage of valuable medical PPE.
How can SiteBox help during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Testing, Quarantine and Isolation Modules
As this virus has made its way across the country, unfortunately, more workers providing essential services have become exposed to the virus. When they are asymptomatic, they often don't want to (or can't) stop providing their valuable service. During their time of self-quarantine, our lease-ready buildings can act as secure work site modules, giving those providing essential services a separate place to work.
In the past few weeks, we've instituted several quarantine modules on our own sites for those who have recently traveled through or from affected areas. While these technicians are not symptomatic, nor sick, we decided to take necessary precautions and give them a dedicated workspace until enough time has passed and they are safe to work with the rest of the team.
Temporary Storage and Offices
Temporary storage and mobile offices have always been our main focus at SiteBox storage. When you lease or buy storage from us, you can count on a reliable delivery, a clean unit and a timely pick-up. Our container storage units have been widely used across a variety of industries, like refining, construction, and retail, and now we're also here to help the medical industry, or any other business providing essential service that could require a little more on-site storage.
Our offices are climate-controlled, providing a great temporary solution for sites that need to ramp up staffing but have limited space. They've also proven effective as testing sites, patient intake, and simple examination stations. Some of them have built-in storage, and they all have safety features like smoke detectors and fire extinguishers, as well as a built-in work space.
Our storage containers and our ground-level offices are weatherproof and highly secure.
Quarantine and Isolation Modules
Originally for use on offshore drilling rigs, our Flex accommodation units are self-contained, and provide a comfortable place to bunk for onsite medical staff, for those in treatment or recovery from the virus, or non-virus patients who need to be separated. Positive or negative air pressure is available.
Each four, eight, or twelve-person accommodation module includes complete living quarters, with beds, desks, lockers, and a bathroom. They include "plug & play" connections for electric and communications. There are also optional kitchen units, laundry, offices and more.
These units are also a great option for medical workers who need an alternative place to stay, to protect their family at home from coronavirus.
Permanent Workplace Protection
If this time of urgency and emergency preparedness and has made you realize that your site could use a more permanent unit for protection, we can start that process now. We can create your custom solution, with negative air pressure and all the specs and amenities you need. Talk to us about your requirements.
