30ft Containers with Custom Doors in Haywards Heath, Sussex

We supply shipping containers to many farms around the UK for a variety of reasons, basic storage, canopy storage, farm shops, building bridges over brooks to toilet conversions, but usually, people want a 30ft container if they need a container bigger than a 20ft but can’t fit a 40ft container. Lindfield Dairy approached us in 2022 and asked if we could provide 2x 30ft containers with custom doors to Cockhaise Farm in Sussex.

Fitting custom doors into a shipping container

Lindfield Dairy opted to have a personnel door with a 530mm x 530mm vision panel fitted into it on one container, and on the other container, they wanted to have UPVC French Doors for easy access to the container without having to use cargo doors, as it can be too heavy to open for how commonly used it will be. Container cargo doors tend to be heavy and stiff, so it may be worth considering an alternative door depending on how often it is used and who will be using it.

Alternative Doors to Consider

We offer many different door options, here are a few examples:

Flat panel/ Easy open/ Fabricated shipping container doors: These can be single or double and are fabricated in our yard to order. These are typically much easier to use over normal container doors.

Additional shipping container cargo doors: We can add in additional sets of cargo doors or we can move them.

Roller shutter doors: These are generally useful when you want to open the container doors but there is little to no space to open them fully. Instead of opening outwards the roller shutter requires little room to operate and only needs to go up and down. They are available in any height to suit your storage container and in widths up to 10 metres.

Personal access doors: These can be added to give quick and easy access to the container. This makes it a great choice for when the container will be in frequent use.

Fire exit/push bar doors: These are very popular in industrial conversions where you have boilers, live machinery, and electrical switch gears inside where people may be inside. Also popular in an event of a fire.

See shipping container doors for more information.

Condition of 30ft refurbished shipping containers

Lindfield Dairy opted to have x2 30ft refurbished containers. Our 30ft refurbished containers are typically made to order and are cut down to size from larger containers. When we refurbish a shipping container, it will be fitted with a security lockbox and will be repainted in either green or blue (other colours are also available, some may cost extra due to lighter colours requiring either a primer or to paint multiple layers until it looks good.) This container is in RAL6003 as shown by images on this page.

The container image shown on this page is a great example of what to expect when getting a refurbished container. As it has been repainted they look smarter than a used container, however, dinks and dents are still to be expected on the outside of the container. These dents are only cosmetic and any holes from use previously are repaired. This allows for our 12-month guarantee on the container (as is the case with all shipping containers we sell).

As mentioned, a lockbox will be fitted to all refurbished unless otherwise stated (Like this container) which makes it perfect for those that are worried about the security of their container. Lockboxes are great, as their primary function is to cover a padlock to stop thieves from using crowbars and bolt cutters and cutting off your padlock with easy access inside.

If a refurbished container has too many dents for your liking, we also offer One-Trip containers. They will only come in either 20ft or 40ft sizes, but they are the containers that are the most cost-effective.
