We were asked to convert a new, single trip 40′ x 8′ DV ISO shipping container into a bespoke shipping container conversion – an open plan container changing room unit.
Working through the customer’s requirements, we created a specification list (as noted below) as well as some additional items, including flashing beacons, emergency exit lights (including battery back-up) and push bar fire-exit door.
container changing room external – 40ft white conversion
shipping container – external LED flashing lights
container windows, high level (frosted) with anti-vandal mesh guards
The container was re-sprayed in a RAL white colour and internally insulated and lined in our white finish. As the images show, the conversion works were carried out to a high standard. The unit was fitted with 8 high-level windows complete with steel wire mesh shutters – the glazing on the windows was obscured to allow light into the unit yet retain privacy of the container’s occupants.
In terms of the electrics, we fitted the container with bulkhead emergency lighting, which would activate in case of a power-out (i.e. with battery back-up). In addition, safety lighting with PIR sensors were installed to the exterior of the container as well as flashing beacon lights to warn passers by including HGVs of the container’s presence.
