If you’re in the construction business and need a mobile office or storage space, or perhaps you’re considering an exciting new dwelling such as a tiny home, one crucial aspect to consider is the customizations. At A American Container, we offer a variety of modifications to meet our client’s unique needs.
From the basic enhancements like adding doors and windows, to comprehensive additions like climate control, insulation, and flooring, the possibilities are endless.
- Custom Conversions
- Windows + Doors
- HVAC + Ventilation
- Electrical + Lighting
Let’s see how can we help you think outside the box® with each of these possible mods!
From concession stand conversions to unique storage spaces – if you can dream it, we can build it! With fully custom steel container sizes and configurations available to cater to all your unique needs, we are excited to help you create your dream space!
Windows + Doors
When it comes to cargo container mods, one of the most effective options is the installation of windows. A well-placed window can flood your space with natural light, making the space feel larger and more inviting. But here at A American Container, we don’t just stick any old window into your mod.
- We use high-quality windows and frames designed to last a lifetime.
- All of our windows are professionally framed in 2” x 4” steel tubing, or larger if required by the design of your container.
Another key customization we offer is door modifications.
- Entry Doors: These are traditional-style doors typically used as personnel doors. An entry door can be installed on any side of the storage container to offer you convenient access. They come equipped with robust lock mechanisms for optimal security.
- Roll-Up Doors: Primarily used for storage purposes, roll-up doors provide easier and wider access for storing larger items. They glide upwards and coil around a drum at the top of the unit, maximizing space. You can choose from various widths to suit your needs.
HVAC + Ventilation
Tailored to the size of your cargo container and specific temperature requirements, climate control ensures the safety and durability of your contents, which is much needed in humid Florida!
We offer our clients the highest level of ventilation options to ensure adequate airflow in and around their steel containers.
- Lateral vents: Lateral vents enhance cross-ventilation.
- Square vents: Square vents allow for maximized air movement and are designed with a larger surface area to ensure adequate ventilation.
Air Conditioning/Heating Systems
We offer a range of air conditioning and heating systems suitable for all seasons and climates.
- Through-wall AC systems are ideal for small to medium-sized containers like our 20’ footers as well as 2 through wall ACs in a 40’ container. They are known for their straightforward installation and operation.
- Mini-split air conditioners are versatile and flexible in application, often used in larger 40’ cargo containers or those with more complex configurations. They are high in energy efficiency, offering you the perfect balance of temperature control and cost efficiency.
- Fulfilling the requirements of our commercial customers, we also offer commercial AC systems. Specifically designed for commercial spaces, these systems provide effective cooling and heating, even in the harshest conditions.
Electrical + Lighting
At times, your mobile office or storage solution might require electrical adaptations to power your HVAC system, lighting, or other devices. We can provide you with a bespoke electrical setup tailored to your specific needs, or you can opt for one of our standard electrical packages.
We offer two types of insulation:
- Closed Cell Spray Foam Insulation: This insulation type creates an air-tight seal and has a high thermal resistance. It’s also beneficial in dampening noise and providing robust support for your cargo container’s structural integrity.
- Fiberglass Insulation: This is an excellent choice if you’re aiming for energy efficiency. Fiberglass offers great thermal protection, reducing heat and cold transfer and ensuring your mobile office or storage space stays comfortable in all weather conditions.
But, we don’t stop with insulation. The interior can be finished off with attractive and durable wall paneling. With this additional step, your steel container won’t just serve its purpose; it will also offer a visually appealing and comfortable environment.
Shipping containers come equipped with 1 1/8” thick marine-grade plywood, but we know that sometimes our customers need more. Hence we offer a range of flooring options for customization:
- Painted flooring: This is a great way to add some shine and color to the interior of your container. It adds an aesthetic touch and a layer of protection to the floor.
- Steel or aluminum diamond-plated flooring: For those in need of a robust and durable flooring option, this is for you. Ideal for heavy usage and to prevent slip hazards.
- Vinyl flooring: This is perfect for those desiring style without compromising durability. Vinyl is an excellent choice as it is resilient yet stylish.
