What are the Benefits of Wind and Watertight Shipping Container

1. Wind & Water Tight Shipping Container

It is pretty obvious that you would purchase wind and water tight containers to keep out wind and water. Keep your goods safe from water damage, dust and any other outdoor elements with a certified wind and watertight container.

2. Structurally Sound

Wind and watertight containers are structurally sound and in good condition. Keep in mind that if you purchase a used container they have been carrying cargo across the sea for 10 – 15 years and will have dents and rust . To be classified as wind and watertight the shipping containers should not have any major dents or cracks making the container structurally sound to hold whatever it is that you need to store.

3. Solid Floors

The floors of the WWT shipping container should be solid so that no water on the ground can seep into the shipping container and damage the contents. If the WWT shipping container does not sit flat on the ground this usually means that water is able to seep through the floorboards which could ruin anything inside the container. Purchasing a wind and watertight container will ensure that the container can sit flat on the ground with no water entering.

4. Functioning Doors

The requirements for a shipping container to be a WWT container include that the doors of the container are sealed tight and that the locking doors are working properly. The seals of the shipping container doors should be intact and the shipping container gaskets around the doors are completely sealed keeping out wind, water, rodents and also thieves.
