Spaciotempo® has launched its unique Ready Box range, offering fast and cost-effective protection for people and products from rain, dust and contamination. Complementing its existing range of aluminium framed temporary buildings, the unique folding modular tunnel is designed specifically for industrial applications.
Typical applications include cover for loading and unloading areas and controlled work environments, helping reduce costs associated with damaged goods and enabling even the most sensitive work to be carried out in stable conditions. Ready Box can also be used to provide highly flexible overflow storage or temporary workshop facilities.
Uniquely, the tunnels are manufactured with a built-in tensioning system, so when cover is not required they can be easily retracted to the minimal overall dimensions. The space saving structure can either be fixed with bolts to external or internal walls or left free standing. The track laid in the ground is covered when the tunnel is retracted, giving the user flexibility to use the area for other activities when the tunnel is not required.
Spaciotempo®'s managing director, Mark Taylor comments: “Ready Box is unique in the UK market, being both fully retractable and relocatable yet robust enough to withstand the rigours of an industrial environment. As well as providing additional space and protection, the ability to use the space or stow it as required in line with day to day requirements, enables our customers to achieve optimum utilisation of their sites.”
Custom built to meet the specific requirements of each application, the Ready Box range is available in a choice of four models with a maximum width of 12m and height of 4m, making it large enough to accommodate a lorry. Due to the modular nature of the structure, the length of the tunnel is unlimited.
The tunnels consist of anodised aluminium frames, assembled with cast aluminium joints and connected by galvanised steel pantographs. Each arch is equipped with two nylon wheels to ensure that weight is evenly distributed and a lift proof tracking system, ensuring the box remains firmly secured to the ground. Available in nine colour options, the units also feature flame retardant PVC covers to meet British Standard BS5438 and can be open ended or supplied complete with flame retardant sliding doors at one or both ends.
