Whilst 10ft containers are classified as non-standard cargo size on container ships, they are particularly popular in the domestic market as metal storage units when space is at a premium.
10ft containers are made by cutting down standard 20ft or 40ft new or used shipping containers. Often, an extra set of doors are added, with lockbox supplied. Normally, when used as outdoor storage units, the containers are re-painted in green or blue. Other than the 10ft length specification, these storage units made from shipping containers conform with standard 8ft width x 8ft 6ins height. However, they are also available as high cube storage with doors, providing 9ft 6ins of height. 10ft containers can be fitted with standard cargo doors or with flat panel, easy access doors. The main difference is, flat panel doors have less locking bars than the standard cargo variety.
To help visualise the storage potential, 10ft containers are:
- The same length as a gymnastics beam
- About half the size of a single car garage
- The same length as the shark found swimming around the Devon coast in 2012!
