8FT CONTAINERS FOR SALE
Three doors to choose fromAt Containers Direct we produce these 8ft containers in our own workshops, by cutting up larger, standard sized shipping containers, and completing them with a choice of doors according to customer preference. We offer three distinct door types, each with its own benefits. We categorise them as S1, S2 and S3 containers.
S1 containersS1 doors are recommended for everyday use, as they are much lighter and easier to handle than original shipping container doors. Made from flat steel panels with a single locking arm, their reduced bulk makes them easier to open and close without compromising on security.
We offer a free lock box with 8ft products to maximise security. This lockable metal box encases the container padlock to deter thieves.
S2 containersS2 containers are fabricated by leaving the original shipping container door in tact. Shipping container doors are made from corrugated steel which is more robust than other container doors, so they can be a little heavy for frequent use, but this can also act as a theft deterrent. The other advantage to shipping container doors is the inclusion of a rubber seal to keep even the tiniest droplets of water at bay.
S3 containersS3 doors are a unique creation by Containers Direct, whereby we have combined the best features of S1 and S2 doors - flat steel panels with an added rubber seal. These doors also have two locking arms. So you can have a door that is both light and easy to use but offers maximum protection.
Keeping the inside of your container dryAlthough all our shipping containers are waterproof, condensation is an inevitable part of outdoor storage in fluctuating temperatures. Depending upon what type of items you are storing in your container, this can be a problem if not treated. Therefore we recommend doors with rubber seals for the storage of items easily damaged by moisture, such as fabrics and paper goods, and use of an effective condensation prevention. Containers Direct can treat any container upon request with GRAFOTHERM which is sprayed onto the container walls and ceiling to reduce condensation problems.
For treating 8ft containers with grafotherm, please add £90 to the price.
RepaintingAll our 8ft containers are sold freshly painted externally in a new coat of specialised container paint, which improves the appearance of the container, and protects it against wear and tear. With a wide choice of colours to select from, you can either make your container stand out from the crowd, or have it blend in with a traditional blue or green coating.
