Shipping Container Door Options

By August 2nd, 2019 About Containers No Comments

Shipping containers are available in many sizes and varying conditions.  They come standard with double doors on one end of the container.  However, there are various door options/configurations available as well.  If you have oversized equipment/product or need to access the container from both ends, we offer containers with different door options to accommodate your needs.  Here are some of the door options on containers and how they can be useful for you. 

Double Door:

Double door containers or “tunnel containers” are available in 20’ and 40’ sizes. Depending on availability, they also come as high cubes (9’6”H). These containers offer two swinging doors on both ends of the container for access points. Double door containers are equipped with lock boxes on both doors. You can be sure that your container is in the best condition and secure. **Available in new or one-trip condition only.  A one-trip container is not used in shipping service and is only shipped once (from the factory in China to the USA).

 

Open Side:

Open side containers come with your standard cargo doors on on end.  However, they have a reinforced side opening with foldable sections. The inner portion/section of the bi-fold doors can be opened similarly to the standard doors on the end of the container.  You can also open both the inner/outer section, giving you access to the entire side of the container. This container is ideal for loading/unloading oversized items. The open side containers also come standard with lock boxes on the doors.  They are also available in 20’ and 40’ sizes, as well as high cubes (9’6”H). **Available in new or one-trip condition only. A one-trip container is not used in shipping service and is only shipped once (from the factory in China to the USA).  

Custom Door:

If double door and open side containers do not meet your needs, custom entry doors are an option as well. These doors can be placed virtually anywhere you need on the container to meet your needs.

Roll up doors are a great option for gaining access to the container relatively quickly. Roll up doors are available in both standard (galvanized steel) and heavy duty (anodized metal aluminum) and range in sizes from 4’ to 10’ wide.

We also offer personnel doors. These doors can easily be installed in the side-wall or end opposite the double doors.  They are available in both industrial (steel) and residential (wood) options. We can also add a security swing arm with a lock box for extra security.  A custom door can be a great addition to your container.
