Product Description

Budget Shipping Containers supply a wide range of shipping container personnel doors suitable for almost any purpose! This is our shipping container personnel door which is our most cost effective range along with the shipping container fire exit door and, as well as coming in wider variations, they all have DDA compliant thresholds so wheelchair access never has to be an issue if used with a ramp.

Our DIY personnel doors are a higher security alternative to PVC doors and perfect for use on shipping containers. Together with the 14 points of locking, the 4 dog bolts and the latch, 19 points hold the steel door leaf securely in its frame. They are supplied with 1 master key and 5 normal keys as standard (see below section ‘keys’ at the very bottom of the page)

It has draught and weather seals pre-fitted, so you don’t need to worry about compromising the wind and water tight guarantee you already get from our containers with a sub-standard door. The doors are anti-vandal, drill and impact proof. Also the locking system has been manufactured for external use (meaning they’re designed to be water tight and weatherproof)

Steel material used on the door frame is 2mm galvanised and on the door leaf Double skinned 1mm galvanised steel. All finished in a grey primer finish which can be used as a base coat to be painted directly over.

Upon order please confirm which leaf is the active leaf and which is the passive leaf and whether the doors opens inwards or outwards*

* If the door set is fitted to open inwards a compatible rain drip set must be purchased separately to ensure weatherproof (see the ‘Accessories’ section below.) The security of the door is also slightly reduced when fitted to open inwards.

Sizes and Prices

Please be aware these doors are SUPPLIED AND DELIVERED ONLY. These doors require you to arrange the fitting yourself on site. We recommend hiring an experienced welder or fabricator to fit the door. If you would like one of these doors fitting to your container by our depots please contact us and we will be more than happy to quote you (as prices/type of door will vary slightly dependent on depot)


All of the above prices include delivery. Our ‘supply only’ orders are delivered directly to a UK address of your choice – England, Scotland (excluding the Highlands) and Wales on a 3-5 day delivery service from point of payment. Orders to the Highlands, Ireland and the Isles are an additional cost and available upon request.


If you have the capability and you want to collect yourself you can. Our warehouse is in Birmingham but you will have to contact us and arrange what you want (so we can check we have everything in stock and available for you) and arrange payment prior to arrival. Payment will be needed in advance for any purchase. However, you can save a fair bit if you did collect your door yourself, details below:

-£45.00 off your door price if you collect in person (hand ball)

-£35.00 off your door price if you collect by your own arranged courier (we will wrap as a parcel for you)

-£30.00 off your door price if you collect by your own arranged pallet freight (we will palletise for you)


Our budget personnel door accessories are very popular and we can offer the below prices when accessories are purchased alongside at least one door from Budget Shipping Containers. The single items (such as code lock, rain drip set, door closer, escutcheon, push plate, side and overhead panels, and the drop bar kit) are all supplied only, much like the doors they will need fitting by the client DIY. The vision panels and louvre vents however will be supplied and fitted to the door prior to dispatch for the price below (adding circa 10 working days to the lead time) – if you want a price to just supply the vision panels or vents just ask!

Provided with the door set is a set of 8 keys, to be used with the euro profile cylinder also provided. 2 keys are ‘fitter’s keys’, 1 key is a master key, and the remaining 5 keys are normal keys. Once the master key is used (after fitting has been completed using the fitter keys) the lock will be set to reject the fitter’s keys. The 2 fitter’s keys become useless at this point, leaving the remaining 6 keys (1 master key and 5 normal keys) only capable of opening the lock. If you’re not fitting yourself and you’re subcontracting your fitters, these fitter keys can eliminate the chances of them coming back with a copied or spare fitter’s key – extra security!
