Customizing a Shipping Container
June 24th, 2016
Always wanted to have a little extra space? Using shipping containers to create that extra space is the perfect way to achieve that dream. Shipping containers come in various sizes and are easy to customize. Extra space applications could include offices, guest houses, music studios, workshops, sheds, or craft rooms. By customizing your shipping container, you can create the perfect extra space solution.
Shelving in your shipping container is a great way to stay organized and keep your shipping container clutter free. Container Technology Inc. can equip your container with shelving prior to delivery. We can help configure your shelving to meet your storage needs and requirements. The shelves hang from the interior “D” rings of the container and no interior and exterior modifications are needed. The shelves are fully adjustable and can easily be removed
CTI can install lights, outlets, and data/phone lines in your container. You also have the option of adding exterior lighting, including porch lights, flood lights, etc. Receptacles are standard 110V and come with either two or four outlets. They can be flush mounted or exposed on the surface of the wall paneling. Overhead lighting is one of our most popular modifications. The lights are 2-bulb florescent fixtures. Multiple switches can be installed to control the lights from various locations inside your container. LED lighting is a great option if you are in a remote location and do not have access to power on-site. The LED lights can be hooked up to a small battery to provide power and illuminate the interior of your container.
Windows and Skylights
Windows and skylights provide an inexpensive way to bring natural lighting into your container. Our most popular windows is a 2ft x 3ft double paned window with a screen. We can also add security bars to a window for additional security. Skylights are a great option for those who desire natural lighting but are also concerned with security. They let the light in but do not reveal any of the container’s contents to anyone on ground level.
Paint and Decals
We can paint your shipping container any color you wish! Maybe you want to paint your container to represent your brand or match it to your building or maybe you want to camouflage your container with trees and shrubbery. Your wish is our command! All we need to know is your color of choice and we will make it happen. If you order a custom decal, we can add that anywhere on your container as well.
Floors in shipping containers are typically treated with chemicals to prevent corrosion and insect infestation. Depending on how you plan to use the container, you may consider replacing the flooring. Steel overlay flooring is one of our most popular floor modifications. Vinyl flooring is a great option if you are looking for something durable and easy to clean. Vinyl flooring also offers a wide-range of choices in textures, colors, and thickness.
The Rhino Liner™ is a coating typically found in the bed liner of cargo vehicles and trucks. This is an excellent option for waterproofing or seating the floor your container. It performs very well in extreme cold and hot climates and will not warp, crack, peel, or split.
