USED STORAGE CONTAINERS
Original containers vs modified containersUsed storage containers can either be converted from shipping containers, or purchased in their original form. As shipping containers come in standard sizes of 20ft and 40ft, these are ideal if you need 20 or 40ft of storage space! For any other size of used storage container there are plenty of converted shipping containers available. These are basically standard shipping containers cut down to various sizes, and then fitted with new end pieces, and doors as required. For example, if you take a 20ft shipping container and cut it into two 10ft pieces, one of these new containers will be left without a door the other without an end piece. This gives the customer a choice of whether to keep the original shipping container door, or have a new storage container style door made.
Categories of door modificationsAt Containers Direct we brand our different door types on used storage containers into three main categories.
S1 doors are lighter and easier to handle - many of our customers that choose these style of door are schools and small organisations.
S2 doors are the original shipping doors, recommended for construction site use as they are the sturdiest, and contain a watertight rubber seal.
S3 doors are a unique combination of both door types, lightweight but with the addition of the rubber seal - easy enough for anyone to handle, but with the added protection of a seal if you are storing items that could be damaged by moisture.
S4 doors are anti vandal, made from fully welded, galvanised steel and are padlockable on both ends. They can be operated either manually or electrically.
