CONTAINER CONVERSION CASE STUDIES 20ft ply lined with non slip floor plate CS30307
Conversion featuresWe begin with a used 20ft container (pictured below), which we modified with the following:
- S2 type original container doors with lockbox fitted
- Personnel door
- Ply lining and insulation
- Durbar steel flooring
- Electrics Package (consumer unit, 2 x 5ft strip lights, 2 x double sockets)
- Repainted Bottle Green
Personnel doorThe container retains the set of original end doors, and we also fit a personnel door to the opposite end, for easy access and frequent use.
Steel FlooringDurbar is a non-slip, raised pattern floor plate. As well as preventing slippage, it protects the timber floor of the container from spillages. The first task is to cut the durbar sheets to size on our guillotine. Then the plates are seam welded to the floor. On this job, we asked to extend the plate upwards, to underlap the ply lining when it's fitted, by 25mm.
Ply lining and ElectricsThe container is insulated and ply lined with exterior grade 12mm ply, which is suitable for conditions where the ply will be exposed to frequent wetting. The lining is fitted so it over laps the top of the steel floor plate, to ensure there is no gap between the two where water can enter.
The electrics include strip lights and sockets, and a consumer unit with two additional fuse ways, as seen below.
