Frequently Asked Questions

Accordion Content

Shipping container vents are openings or devices installed on containers to facilitate air circulation and ventilation. They are necessary to prevent issues such as condensation, mold, mildew, and stale air buildup inside the container.

Shipping container vents work by allowing air to enter and exit the container, either passively through convection, with the help of wind-driven mechanisms, or through active fan-powered ventilation. This exchange of air helps regulate temperature, moisture levels, and air quality.

Common types of shipping container vents include passive vents, turbo vents (wind-driven), electric vents (fan-powered), and louvre vents. Each type has its own mechanism for facilitating airflow and ventilation.

Vents should be installed strategically to ensure optimal airflow throughout the container. Typically, vents are installed on opposite sides of the container to create cross ventilation. Additional vents may be installed on the roof or other areas as needed.

The number of vents needed depends on factors such as container size, intended use, climate conditions, and occupancy levels. Generally, larger containers or those located in hot and humid climates may require more vents for adequate ventilation.

While the primary function of vents is to facilitate ventilation, some vents may feature security enhancements such as lockable covers or grilles to prevent unauthorized access to the container.
