How To Install A Vent On A Shipping Container in Three Simple Steps

In this short video, Channing from Container Modification World will show you the easiest way to install Big Air 45 Louvered Gable Vent with Bug Screen onto a Shipping Container. The new BIG AIR 45 Container Vent with Bug Screen is computer engineered to be installed onto shipping container sidewalls, end walls, or doors – from the floor to the ceiling.

► Other shipping container vent designs can only be installed right up against the top rail of containers and stick out up to 4″ causing the container doors to damage the vents when they fully swing open.

► Other shipping container vent designs that protrude add width to a shack or sea can which may require the need for over width permits to transport. BUY BIG AIR 45 VENTS ON AMAZON

The BIG AIR 45 (2 Pack) comes with a marking guide to make cutting the holes as easy as possible! Rivets and self-tapping screws are also included (we recommend using rivets).

The variables inside a sea can are always changing. When those variables create an environment prone to humidity, condensation will happen. The above-mentioned variables include, but are not limited to the following:

► Humidity

► Interior temp.

► Exterior temp.

► Wind direction

► Wind speed

► Foundation

► Adequate airflow under the container

► Direct sunlight to roof

► Direct sunlight to walls/doors

► Type of contents stored

The volume of contents stored inside

► Color of container

► Specifically the roof

► Number of stock vents in the container

Factory installed container vents are not enough to prevent condensation. Typically used containers have between 2 and 4 vents and the actual total air passage hole is about the size of a dime. These vents are designed to keep seawater out and are meant more as a method to equalize pressure than exchange air. BUY BIG AIR 45 VENTS ON AMAZON
