10FT SHIPPING CONTAINERS FOR SALE
Thursday 22 March 2012 Filed in: General
10ft shipping containers are one of our biggest selling products at Containers Direct, so to keep up with demand we have been busy making up a new batch of 10ft stores. We do this by taking the largest 40ft sized shipping containers, cutting and restructuring them into four smaller 10ft containers. We then need to fit new doors to some of these containers - we have three distinctive styles that can be used.
After years of experience in the business, and by listening to customer feedback, we know our containers will be put to a wide range of uses, from a private back garden lock-up to a building trade site store. Based on this we now use three styles of container doors during the process of restructuring a 40ft container into four 10ft models. Each has its own merits and desirability to our clients. The choice is yours, but here are some pointers to help you decide:
Door Style 1 – CONVENTIONAL SHIPPING CONTAINER DOORS
We use the front end of the 40ft container, which has the doors in place, and basically leave it there! All we need to do is make a new back end. Shipping containers doors are the sturdiest type, and have the advantage of a rubber seal for added watertightness. Our 10ft containers with original shipping doors are a popular choice with the building trade. The downside of shipping container doors is their weight and opening and closing them can be a bit of a struggle!
Door Style 2 – FLAT PANEL DOORS
The preferred choice as a domestic or club/school equipment store. Lightweight and therefore more manageable as well as looking neater. To bring security on a level with shipping doors, we can fit a steel lockbox to protect the padlock.
Door Style 3 – FLAT PANEL DOORS WITH ADDED RUBBER SEAL
These combine the benefits of shipping doors with flat panel doors. Nice and easy to use, with the extra protection against moisture seepage. Again, a lock box can be fitted.
Whichever doors you choose, 10ft shipping containers are unbeatable in terms of strength and security. Repainting after the conversion process is complete gives a smarter appearance and we have a wide range of colours to pick from. This is included in the price of all restructured 10ft containers.
