Personnel doorsWe cut two apertures into the side of the container in order to fit the frames for the personnel doors. The doors can then be fitted into the frames. Personnel doors are great for frequent pedestrian access.
We cut apertures into the walls of the container, fit a steel frame, to which the vents can be attached. For more information see our page Shipping Container Vents
Roof apertureWe cut an aperture into the container roof, measuring 5m long by 1.2m wide. This will be used to lower an oversized machine down into the container, and a 10cm high metal removable lid will sit on top.
The lid is made from the piece we cut from the roof to make the aperture, and fitted into a frame we created for it. After checking the fit we repainted it to match the rest of the container.
RepaintingBefore repainting the ceiling of the container is spray coated with Grafotherm, a treatment to slow down the formation of condensation. After this the inside of the container is painted grey, and the outside is repainted red.
The finished containerAs a final request, our client asked us to take up the container floor, and leave and deliver the timber along with the container. The locking gear on the container end doors has been moved to the bottom, as once deliver this container will sit on a raised platform.
