Also known as personnel doors, these type of doors on containers and portable offices are designed for pedestrian entry, as opposed to loading/unloading cargo. Cargo doors can be quite cumbersome to use for frequent access, particularly if you just want to pop in and out again without performing a major loading operation! And of course if the container is being used as a portable office or workshop, as opposed to storage, steel pedestrian doors are the only practical choice.

Features of steel pedestrian doors

  • Secure! Anti theft and vandal steel construction, with 10 point locking system

  • Practical! Steel lever handles make opening and closing a simple one step manoeuvre

  • Durable! Weatherproofed with rubber seals and thermal insulation

  • Flexible! Can be fitted anywhere you want on the container, or in addition to cargo doors

  • Opens outwards*

Measurements: 890mm wide x 2075mm high. Clear opening height = 1995mm

*For inward opening fit there is a £75 plus VAT surcharge

Each of these recent projects completed at Containers Direct required the use of steel pedestrian doors, not only for practical purposes, but for a more aesthetically pleasing look, which is particularly important for our clients using the container as a base for operating a business.

The cost for a steel pedestrian door, including fitting, is £565 (£75 surcharge for inward opening)
