Roll Up Doors Vs Cargo Doors

By October 12th, 2020 About Containers No Comments

Standard shipping containers come with cargo doors on one end, but modifications allow different types of entry doors. One option available, roll up doors allow for quick and easy access on any side of a container. 

Cargo Doors ISO shipping containers for sale come standard with cargo doors on one end. Strong and durable, these heavy-duty double doors made of steel are extremely secure. Weather-tight cargo doors help protect contents from all outside conditions. These doors are heavy with a cam and lock system, so they can be tricky to operate at first. However, once you know how to open and close shipping container doors, they become easy to use. Containers also come equipped with cargo doors on both ends.  They are referred to as “Double Door Containers” or “Tunnel Containers.”

Roll Up Doors

To increase a unit’s functionality, roll up doors have become one of the most popular container modifications. Garage style doors can be added to the end or the side of a unit, creating one or multiple easy access points. Roll up doors are not as secure as cargo doors. However, they are much easier to get into and create a lot more flexibility when loading contents, especially if located on the side. 

Standard roll up doors come in various sizes ranging from 4ft W to 10ft W, but are also available in larger sizes with chain hoists upon request. If a roll up door is installed on a standard height container (8’6”H), the door opening of the roll up door is typically 7ft. If you install a roll up door in a high cube (HC) container (9’6”H), you gain an extra foot (1’) in height for the roll up door opening.  The roll up doors are made of steel and are equipped with a sliding locking clasp. Container Tech also offers heavy duty roll up doors.  They are manufactured from anodized metal aluminum and are watertight.
