What Is The Difference Between A Welfare Unit and a Cabin?
Both welfare units and cabins offer warmth and shelter for construction workers, they’re compact and easily towed to site. From the outside, these units look very similar, take a look below to compare the insides.
Welfare units are powered by diesel generators, these are available in 12ft, 16ft and 20ft. They also have a canteen area, seating area as well as a toilet and separate drying room in the back. In our 16ft and 20ft welfare units, there is also an office area. The weekly hire cost includes a weekly service to the toilet that is integral to the unit.
Our wheeled cabin units as easily adaptable and can be fitted as canteens, offices or storage facilities. Our cabins come with a sink area in which a water supply is needed. The advantage of wheeled cabin hire is that you can save on transport costs versus the static units which have to be delivered by HIAB transport. Unlike welfare units, these do not come with a generator and require a power connection.
