Door Types For 10ft Used Containers

10ft container door types come with various different options. Here we give a breakdown of each one.

10ft used containers are cut down from larger units. Due to this process, the door and front wall specifications can vary which means we can supply and install different types of steel doors.

When a 10ft container is made, we usually cut down a 40ft container into four 10ft sections. This process means that we are left with one container with the original corrugated front wall, two open ended containers (tubes) and one container with the original cargo doors.

Fit The Missing Walls or Doors

The next step in making up the units is to fit the missing walls or doors. The usual specification for used 10ft containers is to fit new flat panel (or easy open) double doors, a flat front wall if using the tube section, a fitted steel lockbox and to repaint the container to green or blue. The container would also be fitted with lifting eyes to site the unit with a hi-ab or other crane. Due to the nature of how these units are made, they will not have forklift pockets.

10ft Door Options

Alternatively, we can fit the following door types to used 10ft containers:

Single Personnel 10ft Doors

We recommend using single personnel doors if the container is going to be used for storing smaller items and will be accessed regularly by various people. These are also ideal if the container will be used as an office or workspace. The standard single door size is 910mm wide x 2065mm high.

Double Personnel 10ft Doors

This door type is perfect for easy opening and regular use when storing larger items or if DDA compliance is required (please let us know if this is the case to ensure the appropriate threshold is fitted). Double personnel doors can be supplied with an equal or unequal split.

Original 10ft Cargo Doors

We recommend retaining the original cargo doors when security is top priority. Not only do original cargo doors look secure, their four locking rods along with a fitted steel lockbox means that there can be up to five points to fit padlocks. Cargo doors can be heavy and difficult to manage depending on the operators’ abilities.

Flat Panel Double 10ft Doors

These doors are fitted as standard with a steel security lockbox. They are the most cost-effective option to secure, easy opening access. The doors are considerably lighter than the original cargo doors so easier for various people to operate.

10ft Roller Shutter Doors

Roller shutter doors give massive flexibility with what the container can be used for and where. If space is tight on site, a roller shutter might be the perfect option to negate the need for extra space to open two 4ft doors. They can be supplied as electrical or manual with the roller shutter housing positioned internally or externally. Roller shutters are available in a different sizes to suit the units size and usage.

Other 10ft Door Options

The tube sections of the unit could also be made into a tunnel container, with doors either end. These are commonly used when the container will be used as a walkway or housing for a turnstile.
