If you’re thinking about venting or managing airflow in your container, we have three different ventilation options:

The pre-installed container vents.  Portable storage containers are normally equipped with standard, pre-installed vents. These are passive vents that are triple-screened to prevent insects from getting inside. Additionally, these vents account for pressure variations that tend to occur when the weather changes.   Most containers come with one vent on each side, one by the door, and another on the opposite end.  While these vents don’t encourage air flow, they often take care of most of your ventilation needs.

Louvered vents.  If you’re looking to combat excessive moisture inside your 10 foot container, 20 foot container, 40 foot container or 40′ high cube container, we offer Louvered vents, which will provide even more air flow into the unit. If you decide to go this route, we recommend two per container. We recommend two Louvered vents per container for proper air circulation.

Turbine vents.   Finally, we offer turbine (whirlybird) vents, which will be cut into the roof of your 10’/20’/40′ container. The turbine vents will spin as moisture from inside the unit moves up, while outside air moves down. This action helps pull the moisture up and out of your container. The only downside to these turbine vents is that they tend to allow moisture back into the unit during heavy rainfall or snow-melt, but clearing the snow off the roof will help lessen this impact.  Turbine vents are the most effective options for circulating air inside of the container. Turbine vents are only available for long term lease or container sales.
