Fit end wallThis container is being fitted with a personnel door, and requires no end doors, so first we need to blank the open end off by fitting a new wall. For full details of this process, see our article Shipping Container Wall Build
Personnel doorAs an alternative to standard shipper container doors, our client has chosen a personnel door, designed specifically for frequent pedestrian access. The door has a large louvered vent fitted into it, to help cool the container.
Obscured windowWe cut the correct sized aperture into the container wall, and made a steel frame to hold the window. The casement window (hinged at the side), has toughened glass and a trickle vent, to allow further ventilation.
Extractor fanFirst we cut and aperture into the container, and fitted a 50mm box section steel frame to hold the extractor fan. We made a grill and cowl to deflect rainwater. The fan will be thermostatically controlled.
Ply liningWe used fire retardant materials to insulate this container, and lined with 9mm redwood finish ply.
