Product Description

Budget Shipping Containers supply a wide range of shipping container personnel sized doors suitable for almost any purpose! This is our heavy duty shipping container leaf and a half fire exit door which is part of our most popular range. It is still cost effective compared to other alternatives on the market but comes with more locking points than our cheaper range of budget fire exit doors and budget personnel doors; These single leaf budget doors are more cost effective and, if the leaf and a half design isn’t essential, you can typically save a good amount overall!

Our heavy duty standard range has fire exits and personnel access doors which are all available in Single Leaf, this Leaf and a Half option and Double Leaf options of various sizes. And, as well as coming in wider variations, they all have DDA compliant thresholds so wheelchair access never has to be an issue.

This supplied only our DIY budget fire exit doors are a higher security alternative to PVC doors and perfect for use on shipping containers. Together with the point of locking and the 4 dog bolts, 11 points hold the steel door leaf securely in its frame. Provided with the doorset is a set of 3 keys as standard (see below section ‘keys’ at the very bottom of the page)

Steel material used on the door frame is 2mm galvanised and on the door leaf Double skinned 1mm galvanised steel (as appose to the 1.2mm and 0.6mm used on our budget single fire exit doors)

All finished in a white RAL9003 polyester powder coat which can be used as a base coat to be keyed & painted if necessary.

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. Not only do you get your choice of door size (below), you can also choose whether, looking from the outside, the hinges are on the left or the right and therefore which leaf is the active leaf and which is the passive leaf.

‘Fire Exit’ stickers are available separately in the ‘Accessories’ section below (Safety signs are a necessity to comply with building regulations)


This is a supplied only product. With every sale we offer out a fitting guide and can provide specific measurements and technical information of a purchased door upon request.
