Side access / Side opening Container construction

With a full side access shipping container, you manufacture from a standard shipping container either a 10ft, 20ft or 40ft. A side panel is removed leaving it open. Next, hinges are welded in place on the corner posts. Next bi-fold doors are attached to the hinges (depending on what size you are manufacturing either a 10ft full side access container, 20ft full side access containers or a 40ft full side access container). Door keepers are welded on the top and bottom of the side panel, locking bars are added to each door – either 2 or 3 are added to each door.

For a 20ft side opening container there will be approximately 8 locking bars (2 per door) and for a 40ft side opening container there will be approximately 12 locking bars (3 per door).

Side opening shipping containers are only available in new ‘one trip’ condition and is fitted with a high security lock box as standard on both the double doors and bi-fold doors as standard. Full side access containers are available in either blue or green externally (colour may differ).

Bi-fold Doors

Bi-fold doors are the standard doors that come with full side access shipping containers as well as double end doors. Depending on which sized full side access shipping container that you purchase the side access will either have two or four hinges on the bi-fold doors to reveal the cargo. The bi-fold doors can be pivoted round each other to take less space up.
