Product Description now offer a comprehensive range of made-to-order shipping container staircases for personnel doors. With each customer potentially having a different requirement we thought it was essential that custom built staircases were an option for us to offer.

The shipping container staircase advertised here is an example of what we can offer. Designed for two standard height shipping containers or cabins stacked on top of one another. It consists of 13-15 steps, chequerplate floor and is finished all over in black (other colours available on request – see ‘customisation’ section below). It also includes all the handrails and supporting poles pictured. Ideal for stacked welfare units on a construction site or even yards with a number of these units.

As with all things container related it is essential the ground where these will be positioned is suitable. The legs will need support from hard standing ground, ideally concrete.

Please note – these shipping container stairs are designed to be used with ‘standard’ shipping containers (8ft wide and 8’6” high – please let us know if you have 9’6” high cubes or jack leg units and we can of course quote accordingly) The standard 13 or 15 tread can be replaced with 17 tread option (simply a 2 tread extension) to gain any extra length/height required £POA.

These container stairs are designed for personnel use. While they are fantastic quality, heavy duty construction they are still only made for one or two people at a time. If you are likely to be moving heavier items up and down the stairs, pulling up a sack truck with bags of cement on for example, please consult us for advice prior to the stairs construction. Thicker steel, reinforcement, wider steps and landing style loading areas are all possible to build into the design for you.


The stairs are delivered flat pack. The handrails bolt on to the stairs as do the platform supports and platform guard rails (to the landing). Making the item easy to move around site prior to assembly. If you need us to assemble the stairs please ask for price.


Delivery prices available upon request and are subject to your UK address. Our delivery charge will be based on a normal weekday only during the hours of 7.30am to 5.30pm, delivery outside of these days and times will be charged at a higher rate.

Delivery/transport time is not included in the lead time shown above – it is typically an additional 2-3 working days.

customised shipping container staircasesThis is our standard ‘off the shelf’ staircase suitable for 8ft wide x 8’6” high shipping containers with personnel door access. These are all fabricated to order so we can easily modify any design as required for a specific customer, site or use.
