Find out how a shipping container portable security hut can work for your construction site, special event, festival and more.

Whether it's a single entry point to your site or event, or a ticketing booth you require, there are many advantages to using a shipping container kiosk or cabin. Portable, durable, secure, warm and dry, it can travel with you wherever you go.

Easily portable

Security huts to sell and check tickets, or give out information at temporary events are essential, Whether it's a sporting fixture, festival or showground, when it's time set down and move on to the next location you'll want the transition to be as smooth and quick as possible.

Easy to break down and reassemble

Our flat pack security huts come in six easy pieces that can be taken down and reconstructed with just a screwdriver and socket set in minimal time. All the components are man-portable, which means they can carried by hand and popped into the back of a van - a Transit van will be able to accommodate the hut. If access on and off the site is a bit tricky, then the van can be parked up in a suitable location and all the pieces carried by back and forth by hand.

Alternatively, if you prefer to transport your cabin in one piece then forklift pockets can be included with the security hut for this purpose.

Weatherproof on the outside, fully insulated in the inside

Containers are built to survive the elements and will last a lot longer outdoors than other types, such as wooden huts. Made from galvanised steel with a powder coated finish it won't rot or leak in its expected lifespan. Inside the hut is insulated with 50mm polystyrene and electrical packs can be purchased with the product - handy if you want to plug in a heater if the portable cabin is being used all year round for long periods of time. No one wants to be sat shivering in a hut for hours!
