Switch rooms containers (aka: container control rooms) are the electrical core of every worksite. They hold everything that’s vital in powering the daily operations of the worksite.
Shipping containers can be customised to house the electrical equipment, technology, and sensitive controls required to run a worksite – all in a temperature-controlled environment.
The critical importance of container switch rooms cannot be underscored enough, as any fault or failure in the electrical supply to your worksite can result in major financial losses for a business.

A shipping container switch room provides the following important benefits:
Switch room containers are fabricated from high quality, corrosion-resistant Australian galvanised steel that’s built to last for at least 25 years – even in adverse weather conditions, including exposure to the sea.
Since steel is 100% recyclable, you’re also making an environment-friendly choice by using shipping containers, so you’ll be reducing your company’s ecological footprint in the process.
With shipping container switch rooms, there’s no need to spend on materials and manpower to build a foundation. All you need is flat terrain and the necessary space, then you can start using it. And because of their portable features, you can quickly and easily move them where they are needed.
Safety and security are basic requirements in any type of container switch room. With shipping container switch rooms, installing security alarm and fire safety systems is a breeze. This way, you know your equipment is protected at all times.
If you require shelving units for ease of organisation and storage, we can easily add those. You can also choose the paint colour and add the flooring material you want to use to protect the surface of your container – and your switch room can be as plain or as stylish as you choose it to be.
