Check out the many wonderful ways you can use transportable doors

Transportable buildings are renowned for their ability to create more comfortable settings in harsh and strenuous environments, particularly in regional locations.

These buildings are designed to be relocated, reused and repurposed, and therefore need to be versatile. They are employed in a range of industries such as education, mining, government and commerce, just to name a few.

Larnec is a proud supplier of transportable building doors for all kinds of industries. If you are looking for doors to improve the security and accessibility of your transportable buildings, get in touch with our customer service team today.

The benefits of transportable buildings

There are many benefits to transportable buildings for businesses in many industries all over the country.

Rapid deployment

When working on simultaneous and sometimes lengthy site work projects, the deployment of transportable buildings can be completed 30% to 50% sooner than traditional construction. If need be, they can be relocated easily and quickly to fit around logistics and timetables.

Security, robustness, and quality

Because these types of buildings still have to adhere to the regulations and standards of the Building Code of Australia, they are of a high quality and are suitable for a wide range of uses.

Because they need to be used on construction sites, where often they are assembled by crane, they must be structurally resilient. Due to this, you will find that they can withstand various harsh environments, from hot and dry to cold climates and other extreme weather conditions.

Flexible and sustainable

Transportable buildings house many economic and environmental benefits. For example, they use less material waste on-site while giving an extremely high quality option for the buyer or user.

Furthermore, because their main structure is constructed before-hand, this helps to reduce the time and impact onsite, therefore minimising the amount of equipment and people needed.

And, with these buildings being so flexible and versatile in their uses, recycling, refurbishing and reusing them for other projects helps to reduce the amount of new and raw materials and energy output that is needed to produce a new one.

What are some uses for transportable doors?

  • Homes to temporarily house workers onsite at mines and other fly-in-fly-out operations
  • Offices for large-scale building projects and other projects that require a semi-permanent base
  • Events as central nodes for operation and communication for staff in many different sectors
  • Cabins and other 'tiny home' projects that can be uprooted at a moment's notice
  • Classrooms for schools and universities that are currently under construction or renovation
  • Motels as temporary housing when parts of the main building are under construction or renovation
  • Toilets for events, stadiums, and other large scale events that require fast deployment and easy cleaning
  • Art Spaces to provide rapidly changeable landscapes for housing shows and entire collections
  • First Aid centres and triage locations to help support nearby hospitals
  • Accommodation to house people and staff at events, in remote areas, or in a crisis situation
  • Sheds and storage for businesses requiring stopgaps to fill the demand of inventory
  • Cafes and pop-up food ventures that require offsite storage of food and equipment
