CONTAINER CONVERSION CASE STUDIES 40ft Biomass CS28615
CAD drawingAll work is planned out with our client, before commencement, and a CAD drawing produced as the blue print.
- 40ft high cube (9ft 6in tall)
- Original container doors
- Side personnel door
- Two access hatches
- Internal framework for partition
- Roller shutters
- Reinforced side aperture
Step 1 - Door and hatchesWe began work by taking a once used 40ft high cube container, and cutting apertures into the sides for the personnel door and access hatches. The access hatches are located next to the personnel door, at the bottom, and in the front wall, at the top - one to open outwards, the other inwards. We then fit the personnel door, and panels for the hatches.
Step 2 - Interior frameworkOur client wants to fit an internal partition for a fuel store, so we were asked to create a framework from 50mm box section steel, to go around the roof, floor and sides of the container. This is seam welded into place.
Step 3 - Roller shutter doorIn additional to the original container doors and the personnel door, we were asked to fit a roller shutter 'door', the full height of the container and 2.5m wide, located in the opposite side to the personnel door and hatch. Made from galvanised steel, this is a manually operated shutter.
First we cut an aperture to the required dimensions, and reinforce with 100mm x 50mm box section steel. Then we we can fit the steel shutter.
Before the container is ready to leave our workshop, all areas of work need to be repainted to match the rest of the container.
