The SD201W is a used 20ft container with a set of extra wide side doors, giving excellent, flexible access. With a total door width of approxiamately 18ft this product gives almost full side access, but at a much lower cost than new full side access containers. Because we produce side access containers ourselves at Containers Direct, by converting quality used shipping containers, we can keep the cost down, and even tailor the product to your own specifications with a range of options.

Standard features of the SD201W

  • Quality used 20ft shipping container

  • No end doors

  • One set of easy to use S1*, extra wide side doors

  • High security lockbox

  • *S1 doors, description: Flat steel panels, lightweight, single locking bar. Their reduced weight makes them easier to use than shipping container doors, and they are ideal for frequent usage. This does not compromise security, as we use thicker steel than standard shipping container doors.
