A temporary warehouse structure does not just mean a short term solution. They are semi-permanent solutions.

Temporary warehouses from F&L Temporary Buildings are built to last. Rest assured, your new temporary storage facility will be installed by our team of UK based, in-house experts and backed by a comprehensive warranty. 

A traditional storage facility can take months to build and will require significant investment.  A temporary warehouse can be in the region of 70% cheaper to build than a permanent building.  It is a modular building solution meaning, it is built in standard bays.  The modular warehouse bays are typically manufactured in 5m lengths.  Eave heights of up to 10m can be achieved and the span, can reach 40m across.  Larger spans can be achieved by linking buildings together or using a steel frame, providing a temporary warehouse solution for every business.
