Standard double doors (original cargo door or lightweight steel)

Having doors at one end of your shipping container might not provide enough access for your needs.

In this case you could easily fix the problem by buying a purpose built double end door container (doors at both ends). Or if you would prefer, doors could be added to the container side.

The container sidewall can be fitted with either lightweight steel or original cargo doors – which provide an opening of aproximately 7ft 10”.

Before you choose this option there is another type of door you may wish to consider, the roller shutter.

Roller Shutter Doors.

When you think about how you want to use your container, does the roller shutter door look potentially appealing?

You can choose to buy roller shutter doors made from either fibre glass, metal or UPVC material. The least expensive option is UPVC and has the advantage of not needing much maintenance effort from you.

  • Light
  • Durable
  • Can be useful for loading/unloading stacked shipping containers, particularly where opening and closing traditional double doors might be cumbersome
  • Choose from UPVC, metal or fibre glass

The slats that make up the roller shutter doors are not entirely watertight of course, so you may see a little water ingress in heavy rain.

Despite this roller shutter doors are a popular choice and offer some distinct advantages over other door types in certain use cases.

Sliding Glass Doors (Patio Doors).

Adding a sliding glass door to your shipping container not only look’s stylish but has practical uses too.

As you stand inside the container there’s a feeling of space created, and because natural light is able to flow through you’re less reliant on electric lighting.
