Steel personnel doors are offered as an option for all containers and offices from Containers Direct, alongside our usual choices of doors for containers (S1, S2 and S3). Made from steel and incorporating multi deadlocks they offer the high levels of security you would expect on a container or site office, but as they are the same size and design as a 'front door' they are more convenient to use (as well as aesthetically pleasing) than cargo doors.

Uses of personnel doors

Steel personnel doors are a necessity on office conversions. As many cabin offices are converted from shipping containers, it would not only look unprofessional, but it would be a downright nuisance to be hauling a shipping container door open and closed several times a day! A single or double door can be fitted at either side or end of the office, and any number can be fitted according to size and requirements. Personnel doors are suitable for any type of container conversion in frequent use - from offices to classrooms, to workshops and equipment stores.
