Personnel Doors

Steel personnel doors are offered as an option for all containers and offices from Containers Direct, alongside our other four standard choices of doors. Made from steel and incorporating multi deadlocks, they offer the high levels of security you would expect on a container or site office, but are more
convenient to use as they are the same size and design as a 'front door', rather than cargo doors.

  • Galvanised steel

  • 10 point locking system

  • Stainless steel lever handles

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

*For inward opening fit there is a surcharge over standard price

Uses of personnel doors

Steel personnel doors are a necessity on office conversions. As many cabin offices are converted from shipping containers, it would not only look unprofessional, but it would be a downright nuisance to be hauling a shipping container door open and closed several times a day! A single or double door can be fitted at either side or end of the office, and any number can be fitted according to size and requirements. Personnel doors are suitable for any type of container conversion in frequent use - from offices to classrooms, to workshops and equipment stores.

Optional extras

  • Personnel door with vision panel

  • Wide access door

  • Door Closer

  • Push button digital lock

Multiple Personnel Doors

A popular option if you're dividing your container using a partition to create multiple spaces with separate external entry points. We've commonly seen multiple doors in containers which are being rented to separate occupants as separate offices, or in site offices where one half of the container is a drying room and the other a canteen.

Sliding doors

We can use other styles of personnel doors for our bespoke conversions, including glazed patio doors and bi-fold doors.
