All units have factory fitted steel lockboxes and are available in two colours - green RAL 6007 or blue RAL 5010. CSC plated for shipping. We are also able to supply suitable high security padlocks (to fit the standard lockboxes) if required.

Containerised Offices - Click here to view

NEW Shipping Containers converted into accomodation units, such as Offices, Canteens, Drying Rooms, Toilets and combinations of these types. Sometimes it is necessary, for stacking or shipping reasons, to have accomodation units built inside an ISO Shipping Container. This enables the accomodation units to be exported and transported around the world by road, rail and ship or simply stacked on an existing ISO Shipping Container in your yard, or on site. We are able to offer any conversion required to an ISO Shipping Container and we fit pedestrian doors, windows, insulation & wall linings, electrics, plumbing and sanitaryware to your specifications and individual requirements.
