CONTAINER CONVERSION CASE STUDIES 30ft high cube, pallet wide with ramp CS30182
This container is extra high as well as extra wide! At 9ft 6in high cube containers are a foot taller than standard containers, and at 8ft 2in pallet wide containers are an extra two inches wide, allowing two loading pallets, side by side, to fit through the doors at the same time. Other features include:
- Three sets of doors:
- Original container end doors
- S1 type flat panel end doors
- S1 type flat panel side doors
- Grafotherm spray treatment (for condensation reduction)
- Repainted in Silver-Grey
- Durbar steel ramp - 4ft x 4ft with 2ft wide forklift pocket
End doorsThe container already comes with an original set of doors one end, which are being retained, but we need to remove the end wall at the opposite end, and fit a new set of flat panel S1 doors.
Side doorsFirst we cut an aperture into the side wall of the container, and then weld a steel frame that we can attach the new flat panel doors. The flat panels make these door easy to use, and having side doors in addition to end doors in a container gives plenty of room for access when loading or unloading.
GrafothermTo slow down the formation of condensation inside the container, we spray the roof with Grafotherm . A form of condensation treatment is especially important in containers used for storing items susceptible to moisture damage.
The rampMade from Durbar anti-slip steel, and incorporating a 2ft wide pocket for a forklift, this ramp is designed for loading using a forklift. As a safety feature, the ramp is painted yellow for high visibility.
