Lighting Inside Shipping Containers

Monday, 18th July 2011
Trying to sort your goods inside a shipping container in pitch darkness can be problematic to say the least. A torch or car headlights can solve the problem but fitting permanent lighting is a relatively cheap and easy modification.
Providing you have a power supply fairly close by fluorescent strip lighting is an option many people opt for when buying a used container. A single 5ft strip light will be adequate for a 20ft, however for a 40ft 2 pairs of double fluorescent lights will probably be needed. Whether you have an internal switch or simply have the lights connected to an internal breaker is up to you and will make a difference on price. Usually the lights are fitted to the interior side or ceiling and a hole drilled into the sidewall of the container. Here again either an exterior appliance inlet or simply a hole with a grommet can be fitted according to your budget and personal specification. An electrical installation carried out by a professional depot can be certificated and a copy supplied to the client.
During the summer with short nights it may not seem such an important conversion, winter will soon be upon us though and lighting inside your container may be a worthwhile investment particularly if you are using it for storage.
