vents for storage containers

Vents are an excellent way to economically modify your container to allow for more fresh air flow and a lower internal temperature. 

All shipping containers come with small pressure vents at the two ends (about the size of a pack of cigarettes) for breathability, but these do not provide a level of ventilation that some applications may need, especially in hotter than average climates. 

Turbine vents and louvre vents are a great way to get good airflow inside of your cargo container, especially when you will be using your cargo container for storing perishable items, heat sensitive material, or be working out of your container as a garage, workshop, or bare bones office. 

Turbine vents

Turbine vents, also known as whirlybird vents, are installed on the roof of the container and spin, thus creating a vacuum inside the container that sucks air out of the container. These vents are ideally paired with a Louvre vent, providing a fresh air access point at one end of the conex container and the suction on the roof, moving clean air in and old air out of the top. 

Louvre vents

Louvre vents, also known as side vents, are the most economical and easy way to get extra air flow into your container immediately. Often times customers will purchase two vents, one at each end of the container, diagonal from one another, and with one installed low and the other high, thus getting a cross breeze from low to high throughout the entire shipping container.
