When a company is performing certain actions that require the use of dangerous chemicals, there is always a possibility that these chemicals could spill and cause contamination. That's why it's important that each of these companies have a designated space for hazardous chemicals to stay contained in. To help with that, DropBox Inc. offers its customers the hazmat chemical storage building.

Each building is modified to include a secondary containment pan with a grated walking surface. This allows them to offer customers a building that is able to accommodate frequent site changes while also protecting their jobsites from spills that could potentially escape and contaminate the environment.

To ensure that our chemical storage buildings are able to be used in numerous manufacturing processes and applications, each build is designed and engineered to meet OSHA, EPA, NFPA, and FM requirements for the storage of hazardous chemicals. The steel and welding modifications are also in accordance with the American Welding Society (AWS) and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards. By meeting these standards, DropBox can ensure that each customer receives a product that is safe and effective.

What Does ISO Stand For?

Posted on Tue, Nov 05, 2019 @ 16:11 PM

ISO Shipping container, ISO shipping container modification, ISO, shipping container dimensions

On numerous blog posts, website pages, etc., many of our readers probably wonder what the "ISO" stands for when we mention ISO shipping containers. Today's blog post will teach you what ISO stands for and why it's important. 

The Meaning of ISO

ISO stands for "International Organization for Standardization.” When shipping containers are called "ISO shipping containers," that simply means that this organization has regulated their dimensions. Through these dimensions, the ISO helps ensure safety, efficiency, and quality by making shipping containers the correct size for any type of transportation. 

ISO Container Sizes/Dimensions

According to ISO specifications, ISO shipping containers can be between 20' and 56' long. The most common shipping containers used are 20' and 40'. In regard to width, we generally see shipping containers being 8' wide, but this can vary depending on the build. Finally, most ISO shipping containers measure 8'6". However, they can range from 4' to 9'6" ("high cube" containers) also.  

Now You Know!

The reason that we chose this topic is because we wanted to help our readers better understand our company and the products that we create. DropBox Inc. offers shipping containers not only in various sizes, but other customizable options as well!

DropBox Inc. Creates Compressor Container for Wurtland Facility

Posted on Thu, Oct 10, 2019 @ 08:10 AM

When DropBox Inc. begins the process of media blasting to prepare its products for paint, a compressor is used. In order to protect this investment, DropBox has built a shipping container to hold the equipment.

We asked Ronnie Kearns, Head of Manufacturing and Procurement for PSG, what exactly prompted DropBox to make this build now and what it means for the future. Kearns said:

As we spent Capital Money for improvements in our build process, we needed to purchase an new compressor for our Wurtland Facility. In an effort to protect this investment and to extend the life of the compressor, we decided to design and manufacture a container to house the equipment. This was all done in house by our design engineers and manufacturing departments. By putting the compressor in one of our containers, it will allow year round use in the heat of summer and the cold of winter due to the exhaust design and insulation provided for the winter months.

Since DropBox completed this project, the company has already received interest from others who believe that containers for their compressors would be beneficial to them as well! 

As DropBox Inc. moves forward and grows, the goal of every employee is to continue reinventing the box to not only meet the company's needs, but the specific needs of our customers too. By doing so, we are able to build trust and develop a strong relationship with every person who contacts us!

Tips for the Proper Maintenance of Your ISO Shipping Container

Posted on Tue, Oct 01, 2019 @ 11:10 AM

So you've purchased a DropBox Inc. ISO shipping container and are ready to use it on your jobsite. This product now belongs to you, and you can use it however you want. Our highly-skilled engineers work hard to ensure that each DropBox Inc. product is made to withstand the harshest conditions. However, how can you ensure that your shipping container remains in the top condition that you received it in? With anything that you own, it's important to care for your shipping container in order for you to get the most out of it. As it's used and exposed to the environment, your shipping container is going to require proper maintenance in order for it last a long time.

Luckily, DropBox Inc. has some tips on how to prevent long-term damage to your product:

1. Inspect and Repair Damages to the Container's Roof

When shipping containers are stacked on top of each other, this can sometimes cause dents to occur. As a result, dents can hold water that leads to the corrosion of the container. When these dents appear, it's important to repair each dent and paint them with rust proof paint. This makes it less likely for rust to appear and damage your shipping container.    

2. Remove and Treat Rusted Areas

Although some steel is corrosion resistant, it doesn't mean that they're completely corrosion proof. Certain locations, such as near the ocean where salt air is common, can cause rust to occur more often. Therefore, any dent or scratch that appears must be sealed and painted in order to avoid corrosion. 

3. Clean and Lubricate Doors and Handles

The more you use your shipping container, the more worn out the doors tend to get. To combat this, it's important for each door and their handles to be cleaned and greased in order to ensure that they work properly. 

4. Examine Container Modifications

When modifying a shipping container to include things such as doors and windows, it increases its exposure to water and dirt. Make sure that you check the areas of your shipping container that have been modified and clean them whenever necessary. This helps avoid corrosion and lengthens the life of your product. 

5. Make Sure the Container is on a Level Surface

When the shipping container is placed on a level surface, this prevents water from gathering and corrosion from developing underneath it. Instead, the water is able to be drained properly due to the fact that it isn't leaning to one side.

As the number of employees on a job site increases, the strain on permanent restroom facilities that are on-site tends to increase as well. This could cause companies to require a larger number of restrooms on-site in order to meet their project's needs. As a result, DropBox Inc. has turned ISO shipping containers into portable running water restrooms that are easy to maintain and keep clean even in the toughest of industrial and construction environments.

By being able to be moved multiple times throughout the course of your project, our portable running water restrooms can meet the manpower requirements both in and around your site. They are climate controlled, flushable, and complete with containment tanks for fresh water and grey water. With toilets, sinks, urinals, and a mechanical room, these restrooms have all of the features of a traditional public restroom with the added bonuses of versatility and transportability. 

Not only are our portable running water restrooms offered with standardized floor plans, but they can also be customized specifically for your company. We offer men’s only, women’s only, men’s and women’s combo units, and even ADA compliant running water restrooms.

No matter what your specific needs are, DropBox Inc. can provide restroom facilities that meet the demands of your employees and project.

Renting vs. Buying: What's Best for You?

Posted on Thu, Aug 29, 2019 @ 10:08 AM

  DropBox Inc, ISO shipping container modification, ReinventingTheBox, container mods, renting vs buying

When making purchasing decisions, every company is different. It's important to determine what your company's budget is and see what's best for its needs. When looking for a DropBox product, the first question you'll probably want to ask yourself is whether you should rent or buy. This can be a tricky question to answer because both options have their positives depending on what the company's situation is. So what's the right answer? Luckily, DropBox Inc. can help you find it!

Renting

Renting an ISO shipping container helps companies who are looking for a short-term option. To summarize, renting can be great for companies because...

      • You don't need to have a capital budget. Instead, you'll be able to spread the cost across the entire length of the project with a monthly rental rate
      • You don't need to arrange secure storage because the unit may have to be moved multiple times between projects
      • The rental company maintains service on the equipment, so your company can focus on what's important to them instead of peripheral support items
      • Every job starts with the unit in an A-1 functional shape, so you won't have to spend valuable time validating equipment performance and set up

Buying

Buying an ISO shipping container helps companies who are looking for a long-term option. To summarize, buying can be great for companies because...

      • The long term rental rate provides enough equity to buy, or come close to buying, the product
      • The product can be moved to future jobsites and re-used for whatever your company desires
      • You will have 100% control of what happens to the product because your company owns it
      • You are able to modify the product to fit your company's specific needs by painting it, adding fixtures/equipment, etc.

Modular Chemistry Labs Offer Onsite Assistance with Testing and Analyzation of Liquid Natural Gas

Posted on Tue, Aug 20, 2019 @ 10:08 AM

Throughout the years, DropBox Inc. has been on a mission to create products that can satisfy companies' needs within numerous industries all over the world. Industries such as the military, refineries, and the liquid natural gas (LNG) industry. As we continue this mission, we’ve discovered that there is a need for modular chemical labs in the LNG industry that hasn’t been completely satisfied. By offering these modular chemical labs to this industry and others, we can provide companies with fully functioning chemistry labs onsite.

As the LNG industry continues to grow, the need for the analyzation and testing of natural gas grows as well. This requires services such as quality control testing, trace analysis, troubleshooting, unknowns identification, and contamination analysis to detect components like carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and methane. However, most companies within the LNG industry must send the natural gas off to be analyzed and tested because their drilling sites don’t have the facilities or space to do so.

To help with this issue, DropBox Inc. has created climate-controlled, modular chemical labs that come with a wide range of lab accessories including storage space, cabinetry, counters, fume hoods, sinks, vents, and even restrooms when requested. Whether they are hooked up to existing building connections or functioning independently, our modular chemical labs provide a turn-key solution to lab technicians by allowing strategic positioning to wherever they're needed. And by offering standard and customizable floor plans, DropBox Inc. is able to meet the demands of your current operation.

For more information on our modular labs and other DropBox Inc. products, CONTACT US HERE or call us now at 740.532.7822.
