    • Pressure treated plywood – covered with weather resistant cover when delivered.
  • Wood provides limited resistance to mold. The main downside to wood constructed boxes is that the wood expands and contracts based on the outside temperature which can cause cracking and leaking.
    • Wall panels are made of DURA-PLATE paneling, which is the same material that all highway truck trailers are made out of. It’s very lightweight, extremely durable, and helps to reflect sunlight, which reduces the amount the container can heat up in the warmer months. All of these features diminish condensation issues. The floor panels are made of wood, which assists with moisture absorption.
  • All storage units have a one-piece seamless roof to keep stored items clean, dry and safe. Each container is designed to allow air circulation throughout the unit protecting its stored contents from moisture and mildew.For more info, check out: http://mobilecontainersales.com/8ft_mobile_storage_vault/
