10ft Used Containers - S2

Containers Direct specialise in cut down containers, specifically fabricated for the storage market. One of our most popular cut downs is our 10ft used container with S2 style doors. Providing robust security and weatherproof seals, these small units are the perfect store for both household storage and site storage.

Please note, our 10ft containers second hand are cut down containers.

The S2 Door Type

The S2 door type is the original container doors on any shipping container. These doors provide excellent security, with 16mm thick steel and four locking arms on every S2 door. We also add on a lockbox to all of our 10ft used S2 style doors to keep your padlock tamper-proof!

One of the main benefits of these doors are the rubber door seals which keep the unit fully sealed and waterproof. Although our S1 door type can have door seals added, S2 doors have these as standard.

The Construction Process

Shipping containers come in either 20ft or 40ft in length and are all 8ft wide. However, we understand that these lengths aren’t always suitable for the storage market. Containers Direct have been cutting down containers to suit our customers since we started in 2008, and have set up our in-house depot to specifically fabricate for the storage market. For our 10ft containers, we would cut down from a 40ft unit to produce four 10ft containers - one of which will have the original container doors (S2). To the container with the original door, we would then add a new wall. Our focus is always on providing top quality storage boxes which are going to last, and so our new walls are made from 16 gauge matching corrugated steel and fully seam welded to ensure the unit remains watertight.

For the remaining cut down pieces, we fabricate new doors, and add new walls where needed to complete the containers.
