We Cut a Shipping Container in Half - Modifying A Sea Can To Go Underground! | The Container Guy

In this video, we will be cutting a shipping container in half, lengthwise! Many people have cut sea containers in half either to turn a 40-foot into two 20’s or a 20-foot into two 10’s. But for this customer, they needed the container to be smaller in width so it would fit down a mine shaft. In order to fulfill their request, we needed to engineer a unique footer, header and posts so the container can be split apart but not lose any of its integrity.

Watch this video as we cut a sea can in two, weld on vertical posts, headers, and footers and bolt them back together!

We will also be installing customized steel shelving and a workbench in this container using our strut mount brackets and strut channels.
