New Portakabin Arkive product leads the way in safe and secure file storage

Portakabin has reinforced its position as market leader and innovator in the modular construction sector once again, with the launch of the unique Portakabin Arkive storage unit.

Offering high quality, secure facilities for file storage, the new product provides a range of unrivalled security and fire protection features. This gives customers an ideal solution for accommodating important paperwork in a safe environment.


Mike Williams, General Manager of Portakabin Hire Division, explained, ‘The Portakabin Arkive unit has been carefully designed to meet rigorous security demands and offers maximum protection against theft, vandalism and fire. It has been developed in response to customer requirements for storage facilities that offer high levels of safety for the contents, but which can easily be accommodated on their own sites.’

The product features all-steel construction and high security fire-rated entrance doors, ensuring excellent levels of break-in protection, as well as guarding against fire for half an hour – an attribute that is unique in the market. This fire resistance has been independently tested and certified by Warrington Fire Research Centre, guaranteeing that important files can be stored safely for as long as needed.

Other features of the Portakabin Arkive storage unit include:
• Unrivalled levels of air tightness, far in excess of Building Research Establishment (BRE) air leakage indices, which ensures that changing humidity levels and pollutants cannot damage files
• A unique low-level lifting system that fulfils all HSE guidelines to avoid working at height during installation, therefore maximising the safety of people on site
• Six durable bulkhead lamps, fitted with polycarbonate opal diffusers, absorb harmful UV radiation that can fade paperwork
• Wall fixed trickle vents aid air flow in the building

Mike continued, ‘We’re very pleased to be introducing this product to the market, providing organisations with excellent quality, highly secure storage backed by first-class customer service. We always strive to provide our customers with complete peace of mind and the Portakabin Arkive product certainly offers that for anyone looking for safe facilities to accommodate important files on site.’

All Portakabin Arkive units also come with the unique Portakabin
Customer Charter, which promises that all projects will be completed on time and on budget. If Portakabin fails to meet the agreed contract start date, the customer will be entitled to one week’s free building hire for every day it is late*. This provides customers with additional peace of mind that their building will be delivered on time and on budget.
