External storage units from Active

Jun 20, 2013
Purpose made external storage units from Active Supply and Design offer customers an attractive method of storing their goods whilst also enhancing the look of your site.

The units can be produced in your corporate colours and include a highly functional roller shutter door to provide easy access to the unit. Active Supply and Design are able to build their Active Storage Unit (ASU) in a variety of sizes and configurations (generally 75 to 200 sq ft) allowing for the most effective use of available external space to maximise your revenue.

A recent installation of ASU’s to a leading self storage operator included the cladding of the main building around where the units are situated and the design and installation of a cost effective guttering system for the units. These minor building works have served to improve the look of the rear of the building and have increased the prominence of both the facility and its external units from the main road on which the operator is situated.

The guttering system allowed the pitch of some of the units’ roofs to be altered so they could be sited in a more space-efficient manner. Active also provides mechanical, electrical and building works to offer a one-stop solution. 

The units look striking and are a far cry from the standard shipping container offered by many operators.  They have the added advantage that the units can command a significantly higher rental than their container counterpart.

Removal and self storage companies who have added ASU’s to their portfolio invariably report high demand for this versatile product with waiting lists for vacant units not uncommon. The units can be supplied in whatever quantity suits the operator and simply need to be sited on suitable ground. Lighting and an alarm system can be added by Active if required.

The versatility of the ASU has been the key to its success. Active’s ability to manufacture varying specifications to suit differing locations has allowed units to be positioned in places where more standard offerings have proven unsuitable.
