The advantages of using a tunnel-tainerLoading and unloading is more accessible than a standard container - you don't have to unload all the items at the front end of the container in order to reach the items at the back! This is especially convenient if you have a lot of small items to store, or are using a loading pallets or a forklift. The dual entry points on tunnel-tainers are also ideal for the containerised self storage business, as a simple partition down the middle can create two useable units out of one container.
New tunnel-tainersOur manufactured new containers come in either 20ft or 40ft lengths, with the inclusion of vents in the doors, which helps prevent condensation build up. These containers are made to ISO specifications, so they can also be used for shipping or storage, and hold a CSC plate.
Used converted tunnel-tainersOur conversion department can convert second hand shipping containers into tunnel-tainers by removing the back wall of the container and adding an extra set of doors. As containers used for storage do not have to conform to ISO standards, we can offer a choice of doors on these products. The container pictured here has a flat panel S1 type door fitted, while retaining the original S2 shipping container doors at the other end.
Door choices for converted tunnel-tainers
- S1 Storage container doors, which are much lighter and easier to handle than shipping container doors
- S2 Original shipping container doors, which are heavy duty and rubber sealed
- S3 Storage container doors, which are lightweight and include a rubber seal
- Grafotherm treatment to elimate condensation problems in shipping containers
- CISA padlock for containers
