CONTAINER CONVERSION CASE STUDIES 30ft tunnel, ply lined CS31221
- Original container doors
- Additional set of double doors to create "tunnel"
- Ply lined and insulated
Making a 30ft containerShipping containers mostly come in standard sizes of 20ft and 40ft, so to make anything smaller or inbetween, we have to cut down to the required size. with this job, we began by taking a standard 40ft shipping container and cutting off a 10ft sized piece from the front wall end, to create a 30ft container. As we are converting this container into a tunnel (doors at both ends), we then have to weld a "new" set of ISO doors to this open end.
Creating the "tunnel"The container already has its original doors, but we have to add another set to the opposite end. We take the ISO doors from another container, but first we have to manufacture a new frame to fit them into. When this step is complete we weld the frame with doors on, to complete the container.
Ply liningThe inside of the containers, including the doors, are ply lined and insulated with 12mm ply and rockwool. For more on this process, see our article Ply Lined Containers
Repainting to finishThe whole container is repainted green for an attractive finish.
