Product Description

These wireless shipping container lights are ideal for use in all types of storage containers. With an extra-strong magnet strip included on the back these will stick and hold to your container roof, allowing for super easy and safe installation. The motion sensor will detect any movement and turn on the light when needed allowing you to move or work inside your shipping container with added safety. These lights will also help save a small fortune versus fitted electrics. They also include a ‘3M’ sticky back strip if being used with our insulation kits, or on aluminium containers (or the cupboard under the stairs!) Being very diverse these really can be used for any type of storage solution needing light.

They are exceptionally easy to use and set up. This short video shows how:

Our shipping container lights have 33 LEDs in each lighting unit. They come fitted with a 120 degree motion sensor that will be activated from 10ft/3metres away from the light. This light puts out enough light to help you safely navigate through an otherwise dark shipping container. We recommend 1 lighting unit per 10 feet of container.

Recharged via micro USB lead in 4 – 6 hours. Using LED’s they are very efficient on power and if being used 1 – 3 times per day (for a few minutes at a time), we would expect standard battery life to last over 3-months. (please note customer’s usage of shipping containers will vary dramatically – this is only an indication on what we would expect average use to be).

With basic electrics packages for a shipping container starting at around £500.00 + VAT, if you want lighting inside your container for better access and safety these lights offer a good quality but very cost effective alternative. These are also easier and very cheap for large sites to install – They require no instillation other than holding them against the metal surface where you want them.

No drilling, working at heights, no putting drill holes in the roof of your container (which can shorten its life or promote leaks).

The only catch is they will need to be removed for recharging. Or, you could use a portable USB power bank to re-charge your lights. These light come with a charging cable and will recharge in a few hours so can easily be charged during a working day.

Please contact us if you need more than 4 units and we can issue an invoice for payment on all bulk orders, price breaks for additional volumes will apply over 8 units.

Operating Instructions

Our Shipping Container lights are very easy to set up and have 3 primary sensor modes:

  1. Always On Mode (providing a constant steady light as a torch): To activate turn on the light holding in the button in for 1-2 seconds.
  2. Motion & Light Sensor Mode (Auto switches on when detecting motion in darkness): To activate turn on the light by pressing and releasing the button for less than 1 second. The light indicator will flash green to confirm Motion & Light Sensor Mode is on
  3. Motion Sensor Only Mode (Auto switches on/off in darkness and bright places): To activate, when the light is already in Motion & Light Sensor Mode press and release the button for less than 1 second again. The light indicator will flash red to confirm Motion Sensor Only Mode is on.

Most customers will find that setting 2 is good for general use in a shipping container. One you have selected your setting you simply need to place them against the steel wall or roof of the container and they will stick into place with the magnets on the back.

Press and hold button for 2 seconds to turn off. When charging the light indicator will be dark blue. When fully charged the light indicator will be dark red.

Using Our Shipping Container lights with an insulation kit

If you are planning to use one of our insulation kits, you can you the sticky 3m strip on the removeable metal bar on the back of the light to fix these direct to an insulation kit.
