Most shipping containers have existing small vents installed to allow a movement of air through the container while the doors are closed. You can install rotary roof vents and suitable door vents to your container, if you need more air movement – or even powered exhaust fans. By having more air flow from the installation of vents, you minimise odours and increase natural air flow. Vents can also assist in reducing the temperature in hot shipping containers.

The container industry has progressed from providing a unit to transport goods into a market where these units are used for various reasons. In these applications, size and strength are ideal – however one thing they need is: ventilation. This is vital, no matter what the container is used for. When cargo is shipped, the air tightness of the container adds to its value. Cargo owners don’t want air, moisture or even insects to be able to get inside in the brief time the assets are being transported.

Items stored in containers may undergo long periods without being moved or even being opened. When containers are used for housing, you would want a comfortable atmosphere for everyone using the space. Condensation takes place over time which can ruin merchandise of various kinds. Only if you reduce temperatures and create natural air flow through a system which is installed expertly will you be able to combat these effects!

An airtight space over long periods of time has certain consequences, including condensation, rust, mould, heat build up and fumes. There are various ways to reduce temperature and curb moisture formation through natural air flow. These ventilation systems can be installed by an expert or even by container owners themselves – it’s that simple!
