Shipping Containers, Demountables

Shipping Containers, Demountables

We use standard new and used ISO transport shipping containers for our conversions
Whilst there are various designs of shipping container, the majority are termed “dry van containers”, which are built to carry general freight and ideal for conversion.

We use a variety of sizes that are available as standard.

Size Length Width Height
8ft shipping container 8ft (2.43m) 7ft (2.20m) 7ft 6in (2.27m)
10ft shipping container 9ft 10in (2.99 m) 8ft (2.44m) 8ft 6in (2.59m)
20ft shipping container 20ft (6.06m) 8ft (2.44m) 8ft 6in (2.6m)
40ft shipping container 40ft (12.2m) 8ft (2.44m) 8ft 6in (2.6m)

As shipping containers are capable of being stacked they lend themselves perfectly to those projects were ground level entry is ideal but more than one story desirable.

Containers require craning onto site so we tend to recommend them for those uses where the units are to be in situ for a period of time.  If you require ground entry but have a fast moving situation such as an exhibition roadshow or incident command unit then we recommend one of our trailer based demountable units.  These are available in a range of sizes and come with their dedicated trailer chassis for transportation.

We’d love to share our technical experience and creative ideas with you and help with advice, along with any further information you may require.
