Step 1 - The steel work
New end wall and side doors
As this container is a non standard length it has been cut down from a larger container, which means it requires a new end wall after the cut is made.
We also cut the apertures into the steel for the side doors. These doors are extra wide for disabled access, measuring 1.2m each. They are positioned on the long sides, opposite each other.
Extended door frameAfter delivery the container is going to attached to a pre-exisiting building on site, so we have created an extension of 100mm around one of the door frames, using box section steel.
As the container is housing an oven, ventilation is essential. We cut two apertures and fitted frames to hold two high 200mm square vents, one in the end wall, and the other in the corner of the long side.
Melamine lining and insulationThe inside of the container is insulated and lined with melamine, which is hygienic and easy to clean, therefore very well suited to areas involving food preparation. First we construct and fit a timber frame which will hold the insulating material, and then the melamine panels which will cover this. For more on this step read our article Melamine Lined Containers.
RepaintingThe container is repainted Jet Black, but to maintain the "factory finish" appearance, we mask the locking arms on the original doors while spraying. Read more about this step in our article Repainting New Containers
The finished container
On-siteThe container has been delivered, where it has been attached to the existing building, and the oven has been installed.
