CONTAINER CONVERSION CASE STUDIES 20ft Workshop CS22338
It all starts with the CAD
And then it's off to the workshop!
Step 1 - Putting in the personnel doorFirst we create the framework for the new door and cut an aperture into container. The frame is then welded into the aperture and a drip rail welded to the top, so the new door can be attached.

Step 2 - Durbar floor plateDurbar 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.
Step 3- Creating the partitionFirst a steel frame work is made using 50 by 50 box section. Then we weld this into the container, followed by 2mm thick steel sheets (cut to size on the guillotine), which fill the framework. The partition is 5ft 6" wide.
Step 4 - Heavy duty shelfOnce the partition was in place, we could fit the steel workbench behind it. 5ft 6" wide by 3ft deep, with a steel frame, this unit is perfect for heavy weight bearing.
Step 5 - Welding brackets for electrical installations
Step 6 - Grafotherm and interior paintingGrafotherm is sprayed directly onto the ceiling of the container, to prevent condensation. Read how grafotherm works. Then we were able to paint over all the inside surfaces of the container, for a smart appearance.
Step 7 - Fitting the extractor fan

Step 8 - Painting the containerThe first step is to wire brush the container down, to achieve a smooth, clean surface to spray on a new coat of rubberised container paint.
