Lined and Insulated Side Opening Containers

These new 20ft side opening shipping containers are very popular with customers wanting quick and easy access to items stored. Often used for pallets, or for the storage of large and bulky items that won’t fit through the end doors of a standard shipping container. Although you cannot see them in the pictures here, side opening containers also include the standard end opening cargo doors (like a standard shipping container.) As you look from the outside of these end opening doors, the larger side opening doors are typically always to the right hand side – we can get what we refer to as ‘left hand side openers’ if the other way is necessary, or if you’re purchasing two to be placed on opposite sides of the yard or in tandem (so both sets of end doors can be accessed either end)

Over the recent years we have seen a lot more interest in conversions using 20ft side opening shipping containers. Turning them into self contained mobile exhibition stands, cafes, snack stands and retail outlets. We also find these very popular for generator housings, biomass boilers and for a number of specialised engineering applications.

Insulation and ply-lining reduces temperature fluctuations, reduce acoustic pollution and helps to neaten the container interior. It also lends itself to a number of specialist storage applications. Foodstuffs that may need to be stored at ambient temperatures (eg eggs that you don’t’ want to freeze in the cold or cook in the heat of summer), or storage of high value condensation sensitive items such as high value artworks, furniture, fabrics and textiles.
