Custom Doors

Your container’s intended use was for shipping and comes standard with cargo doors on one end. The cargo doors are very functional. However, adding an additional entry point can make accessing your items much easier. We offer a wide variety of options and sizes.

Standard Roll Up

Our standard roll-up doors come in a variety of various sizes ranging from 4 feet wide to 8 feet wide. They are typically 7 feet high depending on whether the roll door is installed in a standard or high cube container. They are 26 gauge steel doors that are equipped with a sliding locking clasp. They are available in several colors as well.

Heavy Duty Roll Up

Our heavy duty roll-up doors are available from 4 feet wide to 10 feet wide. They are typically 7 feet high depending on whether the roll up door is installed in a standard height or high cube container. These doors are 20’ gauge galvanized steel and provide extra security if the container is not stored in a secure yard.

Personnel Doors

Three Foot  Steel Personnel Door. This is a solid panel steel door. It is our most popular door. It is suited for industrial as well as residential applications. It can be equipped with an optional deadbolt and handle lock.


Interior Doors

Interior doors are commonly utilized in storage applications when a container is divided into
sections. (½ Office Space & ½ Storage Space) It provides easy access from the office to
the storage area.



Windows & Skylights

Windows and skylights are an inexpensive option to bring natural light into your container. They are available in various sizes. Security bars can be added to the window for additional security.


This is our most popular window. It’s a 2 foot x 3 foot double pane window with a screen. This
is a functioning window as well. The security bars are optional.

3ft by 3ft Window

This is a slightly larger window. It is a 3 foot x 3 foot double pane window with screen. This is a functioning window as well. The security bars are optional.


Skylights are a great option to let the natural light in and increase visibility inside your storage container.


Climate Control

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning options are available for your container as well. Depending on the size of the area you wish to climate control and the temperature requirement, we have many options available for you to choose from.

Window AC

Window Air Conditioners are a great way to regulate the temperature inside your container. We offer units with cooling as well as cooling and heating capabilities. Let us recommend a unit to fit your storage requirements.

Wall Mount

Commercial through the wall HVAC systems are available in sizes ranging from 1.5 to 5 tons. They can be equipped to cool or for cooling and heating.

Rooftop Turbine Vents

Rooftop Turbine Vents are the least expensive option available. They are also the most popular option when it comes to ventilation. They can be mounted anywhere on the roof. Many of our customers choose to have multiple vents installed. A power source is not required for this type of vent. It is a good alternative for customers storing temperature sensitive items on a limited budget.

Louver Vents

Intake Louver Vents are available in sizes ranging from 12” to 36”. They are typically installed in conjunction with one of our exhaust fans. They can also be installed independently to allow for air to pass through the container naturally. They come standard with bird screens.



Standard containers are not insulated or finished on the interior. The interior climate of your container can be drastically improved by adding insulation. Most of our customers choose to go with fiberglass insulation. It is the same type of insulation you find in many homes. At a thickness of 3 ½”, it provides an R-13 insulation value.

Interior Options

IES offers a full range of interior options to fit you requirements. They include, but are not limited to, the following:

Installing ½” plywood over 2” x 3” wood studs and R-13 insulation. This is the most common interior finish for climate controlled storage or office containers and can be painted for an additional charge.

We also offer FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Panel) durability, easy maintenance and sanitation are required. These are installed over standard studs and insulation and provide a durable, shatter resistant surface that:

  • Resists scratches.
  • 100% moisture resistant.
  • USDA and Agriculture Canada certified.
  • Thermal shock and chemical resistant.
  • Cleans easily with steam, high pressure sprayers or soap/water.
  • Extensive color options on textured or smooth surface improves design flexibility.
  • Class A or Class C fire-rating available.
  • Color-matched moldings and fasteners.
  • High impact strength.
  • Low maintenance.

If fire codes prohibit the use of wood we can also finish the interior using metal studs and aluminum or steel sheathing.

The containers are normally fitted with insect resistant plywood flooring. These floors can be left as is, painted or finished with commercial vinyl flooring materials.

Locking Mechanisms

We understand that your container and the contents inside can be very valuable. Standard containers come equipped with locking clasps, 2 on each door, leaving your lock exposed. We offer locking mechanisms that can provide additional security to help keep your items secure.

Lock Box


We have shelving systems available for your container. We are able to configure the shelving to meet your storage requirements. The shelves hang from the interior “D” rings of the container. In most cases there are no interior or exterior modifications required to hang the shelves. If you decide you no longer need the shelving it can easily be removed. Container shelving is a great way to organize your container.


  • Uses interior D rings meaning no interior or exterior modification to the container is needed
  • Adjustable – You can place either down the entire side of the container or in smaller sections
  • Removable – If you decide you no longer need the shelving, you can easily remove it

Container Painting


Applying paint is an excellent way to improve the aesthetics of your container. Adding a fresh coat of paint also helps protect the surface from the constant exposure to the elements. We use marine grade industrial enamel. It is a coating that is made to be applied on exterior steel surfaces. A wide variety of colors are available for you to choose from.
