Washing Machine Storage Boxes.
The Washing Machine Storage Boxes bellow show a standard size box with extra wide doors.
This is so your appliances have the maximum space within the box.
We add extra stiffeners under the floor and an 18 mm Thick OSB 3 wooden floor as standard.
Boxes can be made in various sizes and a choice of six colours for use underneath or around the perimeter of your van, therefore making them ideal for storing items such as gas bottles, outdoor furniture, adult bicycles, mobility scooters and wheelchairs etc. Also, at the same time freeing internal van space.
Every Storage box is made using Plastisol steel which is maintenance free and fire resistant. Therefore ensuring lasting good looks plus trouble free use. We make all of our boxes with a peaked roof. Above all this helps repel water and stiffens the roof. We can make the boxes with a flat roof, we make the under veranda box flat roofed.
All Boxes are come with a 3 Point locking system as standard, including 2 Keys unique to that Box. The 3 point locking system sends a solid steel bar into the roof and 1 into the floor and locks behind the other door in the middle. They have a full size Aluzink floor. It Is 50 mm (2 ”) thick so your items are above ground level and any pooling water on the surface. We stiffen the floor from underneath to stop it from sagging and add an 18 mm Thick OSB3 Wood floor cover. All the doors have a rubber door seal fitted.
With our washing machine box, we provide an OSB wooden floor to prevent the appliances moving around while in use and to provide added strength to the floor. We use OSB 3 because every single fibre in OSB 3 board is saturated with a cocktail of resins designed to provide superior strength and waterproofing to the finished product. This type of board is used in construction and is an excellent material for use in flat roofing. OSB 3 board is twice as strong as plywood.
Storage Box Base Dimensions
For this size box the minimum footprint needed is:
6 ft (1829 mm) wide x 2 ft 10” deep (864 mm)
But the ideal footprint needed is
6 ft (1829 mm) wide x 4 ft 11” (1500 mm) deep, to allow for door clearance.
Storage Box Base construction.
All our storage units need a sound, flat level surface to be sited on ie: concrete, tarmac, block paving or flagstones. We suggest the base material should be a minimum thickness of 2” (50 mm). None of the sites we supply to will allow you to site a box directly onto grass only. If this is the case please get permission from your site manager
