New quick build storage containers save time for rail contractors

Tool storage and materials handling specialist Armorgard is adding quick build storage containers to its portfolios of RISQS approved rail products for the construction and maintenance sector.

Forma-Stor, a lightweight, ultra-strong flat-pack alternative to standard containers, reduces disruption to the network by eliminating the need for HIAB crane lifts and Road Rail Vehicles (RRVs).

Paul Weeks, a Signal and Telegraph (S & T) Manager for Network Rail was one of the first to use the Armorgard Forma-Stor.

He said: “The flat-packed design means that overheads do not need to be isolated when transporting the Forma-Stor, which prevents delay minutes, requirements for possessions, stoppages in work and associated costs.

“The Forma-Stor Can be strategically placed in focal positions to reduce delay minutes and walking distance when a variety of items are required on site, ensuring you have total control of the transportation process to optimise logistics and best fit in with the eternal schedule.”

Designed as a walk-in vault that can be quickly transported to trackside and easily set up anywhere on-site, Forma-Stor consists of panels that simply slot into place.

The whole set-up only takes around 10 minutes and can be carried out by two people, compared with the team of people needed to organise a standard container lift.

Forma-Stor comes in four different sizes, from 1-4 metres, and can be used for on-site storage of equipment, such as hand and power tools, materials, including cable and metals, and other small to medium component storage.

There is also a COSHH version of the Forma-Stor for chemicals and other hazardous substances.
