Increasingly popular, these 20 foot steel containers can be referred to as ‘high cube containers’ and provide an often invaluable extra foot of storage space.

A slight adaptation on our standard 20 foot by 8 foot units, these high top containers offer more headroom, more volume and more flexibility. Standard containers are 8.6ft high whereas these high cube models stand at 9.6ft high, increasing internal space by approximately 250 square feet.

You will often see these shipping containers converted into offices and workshops due to the added benefit of additional height to use for false ceilings etc. The additional height is also useful when it comes to storage, which is why they are also popular as a storage solution on construction sites and in particular groundworks as they are able to accommodate larger plant such as diggers!

Apart from height, the other dimensions remain the same as our 20’ x 8’ steel containers and the impressive security features are still all present. Anti-jemmy hinge protectors and Kaba experT reversible key locking systems which are burglary resistant according to DIN 18252, Grade P3 mean that whatever equipment or goods you choose to store will be easily accessible yet secure.
