Ever wondered why climate-controlled storage Dubai units are so important?

Storing your valuables in a self-storage unit is a great and convenient way to stay organized. From keeping your personal stuff to giving you an online inventory store, they provide extra space when you need it most.

But do you know that there are some items you shouldn’t keep in regular storage?

Items such as antiques, paintings, and works of art are perfect examples. However, it is not just vintage items that benefit from a climate-controlled storage unit. Everyday items such as books, furniture, and anything made out of metal, wood, and leather also require these units to stay in top condition.

In this article, we’ll look at some core items that require climate-controlled storage to stay free from damage while in a storage Dubai unit. But first, let’s start by defining what climate-controlled storage units are.

What is climate-controlled storage?

Climate-controlled units are unique storage spaces built with temperature control features to help keep your valuables in good condition. Unlike outdoor storage units, they are typically kept indoors and are designed to maintain an optimum temperature between 55-85 degrees Fahrenheit. 

By regulating humidity and temperature at all times, climate-controlled units don’t collect any moisture. This helps to protect your valuables from cold and dampness that can lead to mold and mildew.

What Items Require This Type of Storage?

Many items need climate-controlled storage to stay protected, but certain items require this type of unit to remain in top condition – all year round. Here are some of them.


Suppose you have some recording equipment, TVs, or computers you want to keep in storage. In that case, you should definitely go for climate-controlled units.

Electronics are susceptible to high temperatures and humidity. As a result, when kept in regular storage, they can suffer from moisture build-up and high or low temperatures leading to permanent damage from corrosion.

On the flip side, climate-controlled storage units help protect your electronics from any temperature or humidity fluctuations so you can rest easy. Other electronic items you should keep in climate-controlled storage include:

  • Washers & Dryers
  • Ovens & Microwaves
  • Refrigerators & Freezer


Anyone who loves leather knows how sleek and strong it can be. But they don’t always fare well when left exposed to the elements. High temperatures can cause leathers to crack while keeping them in units with high humidity levels can produce warping and mildew.

Storing your items in climate-controlled units prevents all these from happening to your valuable leather possessions. With climate–control features, your leather items will be maintained at an ambient temperature, keeping them in safe condition 24/7.

  • Couches
  • Chairs & Recliners
  • Leather Bags & Suitcases

Important Documents

Storing documents in a storage unit is a great way to free up your personal or business workspace in Dubai. Whether you are looking to keep photographs, invoice copies, receipts, or tax documents, what matters is that every document piece is safe and in good condition. The last thing you want is to return to your storage Dubai unit only to find your documents in an awful state.

This is where climate-controlled storage units come into play. These unique storage spaces maintain a consistent ambient temperature that keeps your documents in safe condition 24/7.


Wine is one of life’s simple pleasures. But knowing where to store them can be much less exciting and tricky. Without adequate wine storage, temperature changes can cause your wine to expand, thus pushing out the cork and enabling oxidation.

If you love wine as much as we do at Vachi Storage, you wouldn’t want it to age prematurely or become ruined when in storage. That’s why we recommend climate-controlled units for customers looking to store wine bottles at our storage Dubai facility.  

With climate-controlled units, your wine is preserved at optimal storage temperature, keeping it fresh as the winemaker initially intended.

Items Made Out of Metal, Wood, or Fabric

It is essential to store any item made out of metal, wood, or fabric in a climate-controlled storage unit.

Metals are susceptible to extreme changes in temperature. As such, rust or even warping can occur if they are not stored at moderate temperatures. Like metals, wood and fabrics are also very sensitive to temperature and excess humidity changes. Therefore, keeping them in a regular storage unit can result in warping, fading, discoloring, or permanent damage. 

That’s where climate-controlled storage comes in handy. Anything made out of metal, wood, or fabric is better off in them. In addition, with climate control, you can protect the documents that may be damaged due to extreme weather, such as freezing temperatures, humidity, or heat.
