Building Use - Document Storage

Secure, fire-rated file storage for hire - giving you 39% more space than any comparable building

If you need to store essential documents securely on your site, there's no safer place to keep them than a Portakabin Arkive building. This robust, all-steel building has been independently fire-rated to provide half-hour fire protection. It incorporates a host of design features to ensure your documents are secure, easily accessible and maintained in prime condition at all times.

High-capacity, flexible storage to keep your documents safe and accessible 
Offering a generous 12m3 of storage space, the Portakabin Arkive building provides enough room to store the contents of approximately 61 four-drawer filing cabinets - that's 39% more space than any comparable product on the market. A high-quality steel racking system is fitted as standard, maximising your usable storage area.

Why choose a Portakabin Arkive building?

  • Robust, 12m3 all-steel building with high-security fire-rated doorset and digital keypad lock - to resist and deter unauthorised entry
  • Half-hour fire protection from the exterior to the interior of the unit, independently certified by Warrington Fire Research Centre - giving you unmatched fire protection for your files
  • Five rows of fully adjustable shelving each support a substantial 110kg - giving you all the flexible storage capacity you need
  • Excellent air-tightness rating - preventing paper damage by providing consistent humidity levels and reduced levels of air pollutants
  • Lights fitted with polycarbonate opal diffusers to absorb harmful UV radiation which could fade your paperwork
  • Tubular heater fitted as standard to provide background heating
  • Unique low-level lifting system - fulfilling HSE guidelines to avoid working at height during installation

Unbeatable storage space available to hire for as long as you need it

You can keep your documents safe and accessible on site for as long as you like, because the Portakabin Arkive building is available to hire from your local Portakabin Hire Centre. The building is available on short lead times to meet even the most urgent requirements.

“The Arkive units were a very good solution for the school. Unlike most storage containers they came complete with a racking system that enabled the documents to be properly filed away, making them easily accessible throughout the interim period.”
