What Can You Fit in a 20 x 8 x 8 Portable Storage Container?
Fans of random facts and mathematical equations alike will be intrigued by an infographic created by ModSpace, a provider of modular building solutions. The infographic offers a peek inside a 20’ x 8’ x 8’ portable storage container and showcases just how many everyday – and not-so-everyday – items it can house.
These large, steel storage containers are commonly used to store tools, equipment and materials at construction sites, as well as other valuable items. While some of the items shown on this infographic (such as wooden 2 x 4’s and 60-lb. bags of concrete) are commonly found and used on the job at construction sites everywhere, others probably aren’t objects that instantly spring to mind.
Sometimes, it’s not simply using space to calculate how much can be stored inside a container. Volume is another factor to consider, too. Each of these ISO-certified containers possesses a capacity of 61,289 lbs. This is definitely something to keep in mind when storing water or items of a certain poundage so as not to exceed limitations and conform to safety regulations and requirements.
If you’ve ever wondered just how many eggs (minus the carton!) can fit into a space of this size, or just how many years’ worth of office paper can be stored in one of these containers – and the number of paper clips to bind them together – this infographic answers those questions in a fun, eye-catching format.
