To meet increased demand for site welfare units, UK rental company A-Plant Accommodation has expanded its fleet with a 50-unit order worth nearly £1 million from Boss Cabins. Available to hire from A-Plant Accommodation service centres nationwide, the 12ft (3.7m) Comfort Space 7 mobile welfare units offer room for seven workers, thanks to an innovative and practical design.
The 100% corrosion resistant cabins are constructed from robust, fully painted stainless steel, improving their lifespan and appearance. Eight dedicated personal storage pigeon holes, each with 40 litres of space, mean personal items are safety stored away from the floor, minimising tripping hazards.
Generator service intervals of 2,000 hours reduce maintenance and logistics demands, while the Comfort Space 7 cabins also boast ECO+ electrical specifications for efficient energy consumption. This means the generator is only required for high-power applications, while lighting and 12v USB power points can be run directly from the battery – reducing both fuel consumption and noise.
A load shedder ensures that the battery never runs flat and that power is always available for generator start up and hydraulics. Security and safety are further enhanced by telemetry technology, providing visibility of fuel consumption, location and any servicing requirements.
Ian Needham, A-Plant’s Director of Accommodation, said, “These new units offer our customers more flexible, reliable and secure mobile welfare cabins that comply with all relevant legislation. Their high-quality design maximises storage space available to workers, while offering market-leading value, safety and environmental benefits that will make a real impact to our customers on-site.”
Boss Cabins Director Niall Wordsworth added, “We have grown our business on the back of value-added features and a focus on user safety and the environment. We are extremely pleased and proud that A-Plant, one of the biggest names in the UK rental market, has recognised the benefit our units represent to its customers and placed this volume order. We look forward to continuing our partnership with A-Plant Accommodation.”
