Do more with the double end door tunnel-tainer
Having doors at one end of a shipping container is standard, but how about doors at both ends? Let us introduce you to the tunnel container, also known as double end door container or tunnel-tainer – Available for sale or hire.
Tunnel containers for storage
Stock rotation and easier access to your stored items
Imagine the inconvenience of needing to access your particular items at the front of a fully loaded shipping container but only having access through the back end doors – it could be very cumbersome.
With doors at both ends retrieving your items is made much easier and more efficient.
Also, for businesses that have date sensitive stock such as food products the double end door container really helps to streamline stock rotation.
Partition walls: Could this be a money saver for you?
Dividing or sectioning off space inside your tunnel container is possible with the use of a partition and can be fitted for you by our depot.
What’s the advantage?
By creating two separate compartments within the tunnel container rather than purchasing two individual standard storage containers you will generally notice savings in either hire or purchase prices.
This modification is especially popular with self storage sites wanting to maximise profits.
- 1 x 20ft tunnel container with a partition wall costs less than 2 x 10ft standard containers
- 1 x 40ft tunnel container with partition wall costs less than 2 x 20ft standard containers
Need something a little more bespoke?
Apparetures, lighting, insulation and many other types of container customisation work can be carried out by our depots for you.
Customisation could include:
- Lighting and electrics
- Doors including side door access
- Partition wall
Everyone was attentive and friendly and the product was good value. Joanna Mountain
More uses of a tunnel container…
‘The Journey’ is an art installation that was designed to highlight the gritty story of human trafficking and was commissioned by actress Emma Thompson and the Sam Roddick Foundation.
Created using 7 tunnel containers supplied by Adaptainer the exhibition drew very large crowds.
While walking through each of the containers visitors are given a harrowing visual and sensory experience of the tragedy behind human trafficking.
After being unveiled in London’s Trafalgar Square the exhibition was later shipped and re-assembled for showings in Vienna, New York, Madrid and The Hague
Exhibition road show tunnel: Dr Who
The Crash of the Elysium theatrical experience was created by production company Punchdrunk and based on the popular Dr Who television show.
Producers organised multiple tent zones for the Dr Who experience but needed each zone to be connected by walkways so that visitors could move between areas without having to step outside.
By using tunnel containers not only was it possible to achieve this but the containers were easily transportable to the next road show location with set props and tents stored inside.
Construction sites: Tunnel walkway protection
Injury caused by falling debris is a hazard construction sites are keen to avoid.
Tunnel containers, made from durable corten steel, are a simple solution to help protect people walking beneath areas where there may be a danger of harm.
