20ft double door (tunnel) containers are almost identical to 20ft standard containers, with the addition of an extra set of cargo doors at the far end of the container. When both sets of doors are opened you can walk through the entire container.

Did You Know?

We manufacture our very own double door (tunnel) 20ft containers at our factory in China. With 3 locking bar ‘easy open’ door types at both ends, 14 air vents for great ventilation, lockboxes fitted at both ends and bamboo or marinegrade hardwood flooring, they are a top quality product to purchase for your container requirements.

What are double door containers used for?

Tunnel containers are great for self-storage sites. This is because we have the ability at our container depots to insert 8mm- 10mm steel partition walls in the middle of the unit. The steel sheets are welded to the side walls and ceiling of the container. This then offers you the ability to provide your customers with 10ft storage units! Purchasing a new 10ft ISO container is now expensive due to the increased costs of shipping this unit type into the UK. A tunnel container provides better value for money for self-storage site owners. As you access the container from both ends, double door containers are ideally best positioned on the ‘middle row/ aisle’ of your site, with customers accessing each end on separate aisles.

They are also sometimes used as ‘passageways’ at music events and festivals to help funnel crowds through a certain gap. Furthermore, they are a great option for companies needing to access stock stored at both ends of the container, instead of having to unload the whole unit to reach stock at the end.

New tunnels delivered to a site in Huntingdon

Boxtor recently built 20 x 20ft DD (tunnel) containers in RAL 5013 dark blue for our customer. We inserted 8mm steel partition walls in the center of each unit out our depot in Felixstowe. This therefore gave our customer the ability to offer 40 x 10ft units on their site! We delivered all twenty containers to site with HIAB lorry and flatbed articulated trucks over a 2 day period. We have the ability to deliver over thirty containers in a single day using several trucks with our dedicated team of hauliers!

“We purchased a reefer through Boxtor and Dominic was our main point of contact since the beginning. He provided us with a competitive quote and made sure that the reefer was delivered as soon as possible. The whole process was seamless and we are very happy with the overall experience. We are looking forward to doing business with Boxtor again in the near future”
