  • Power and Lighting: Our units come equipped with internal and external power points, strategically placed for convenience and efficiency. Illumination is provided by internal LED lighting, offering bright, energy-efficient light that enhances the workspace without the high energy costs.
  • Water Supply and Plumbing: Each kitchen container has a preset plumbing setup, including sinks with hot and cold water, to ensure all your water supply needs are met efficiently.
