16FT CONTAINERS FOR SALE
Once cut down and adapted for storage, these 16ft containers for sale no longer conform to shipping standards, but they do make the best storage containers on the market. Shipping containers are chosen to make new storage units as they cannot be beaten in terms of strength and durability. Made from corten steel, and with heavy weight bearing floors, they will give you years of secure, watertight storage, as corten also has rust repellent properties.
Choosing doors for storage containersAnother great advantage of using shipping containers to make our 16ft containers for sale is that during the process of adapting these containers, we are able to fit a range of new doors to give our customers more choice than the standard doors fitted on shipping containers. Some of our customers prefer a storage container with original S2 doors, corrugated, and rubber sealed to increase watertightness. However, the down side to keeping these doors on a storage container is that they can be quite cumbersome to use - generally considered to be more suited to building sites rather than lighter storage for organisations such as clubs and schools and domestic use.
Alternative door typesAs many of our 16ft containers for sale are bought by these groups, there are two alternative door types that can be fitted to cut down containers. This 16ft S1 shipping container has been fitted with a slimmer, flat panel door which is much easier to open and close. We offer a compressed door seal for this type, as an optional extra.
As a third option to give you the best of both door types, flat panel doors with double locking bars and a rubber seal are available. We call these S3 doors
Roller shutter doors - S4As an alternative to traditionally opening doors, we can fit a roller shutter door - either to replace the end door, or as an additional side entry. Made from galvanised steel, with padlocks both ends, these doors are as secure as any other choice. They can be operated either manually or electrically. See our S4 Roller Shutter sample product for more detail.
Side doorsYou will notice some containers have the doors moved to the longside of the container - known as 'side door containers'. This makes for convenient access to the container and more options for positioning it on site.
Making the most of your storage containerOnce you've decided which doors are most suitable for your needs, we have a number accessories and treatments to choose from, that can improve the functionality of your container:
- Security locks
- Grafotherm anti condensation treatment
- Ply lining
- Melamine lining
