Stanley Black & Decker asked Port Shipping Containers to design and construct a modified container which could be used as a portable demonstration area for DeWALT Power Tools. They wanted to be able to transport it to trade fairs and exhibitions like Melbourne’s unique Moomba Festival. Customers could select a power tool from the display wall inside the container and test it out on a fixed timber demonstration wall – who doesn’t love trying out a new power tool?
The container was built by Port Shipping from a 20 foot High Cube Container and featured a range of accessories, including an insulated roof with LED oyster lights, an internal steel partition with flush fit steel personnel access door, checkered plate flooring, secure roller doors, and even an internal staircase with a roof access hatch. The roof of the container was converted into a viewing platform with a webforge flooring and safety hand rails. The container was painted internally and externally with the distinctive De Walt colours and branded with their custom signage.
