Partitions in Shipping Containers
Steel partitions are a convenient way to create smaller spaces within your container. We are able to offer steel partitions, or timber partitions, depending on your requirements. A steel partition is particularly useful if you want to split a larger unit into smaller areas with separate external doors, whereas the timber partitions enable you to create two rooms accessed via an internal doorway. Both options provide a cost effective way to maximise the space of one container for two (or more) uses.
Steel partitions in shipping containersTo fit a steel partition, we would fully seam weld a 3mm thick steel wall at the desired length within the container to create two completely separate rooms. This wall is then painted to avoid rusting. We would recommend an internal repaint to each section to improve the interior appearance of the unit, if you are not having it lined and insulated.
Timber partitions in shipping containersMuch like having a stud wall in your home, these partitions conveniently separate your unit into separate spaces whilst still allowing you to access the other area of the container via an internal door. Most often used in office conversions where two rooms or more are required, or an office/store combination, this provides a cheaper alternative to two separate containers modified into two rooms, with the benefits of having everything in one place.
