8FT CONTAINERS SECOND HAND
Once the 8ft sections have been cut, we need to make complete the process with either new doors, or a new end wall, or both, depending upon where the cut has been made. Containers Direct specialise in manufacturing new doors for cut down containers, offering a choice of four distinct styles.
Please note cut down containers are not suitable for shipping, stacking or lifting when loaded. They can be modified upon request if these conditions are required.
Door styles for 8ft containers
These are flat panelled steel doors, are much easier to open and close than standard shipping container doors, as well as being more aesthetically pleasing. Often the preferred choice of schools and clubs, for use as garden sheds, a bike store, or general storage. Take a look at an example of an 8ft S1 container

The original shipping container door is most popular on building sites and has the advantage of retaining the rubber door seals, for complete watertightness. The disadvantage is that you may have to struggle to open and close them, unless you are used to working in manual labour! See our standard 8ft S2 container
