Enhancing the Security of Your Shipping Container: Essential Features to Consider


When it comes to securing your valuable items, shipping containers are a robust and versatile solution. However, adding extra security features can significantly enhance their protection. At XCaliber Container, we understand the importance of securing your assets, whether you're using a container for storage, an office, or any other purpose. Here are some essential security features you can add to your shipping container to ensure maximum safety.


Our Security Add-On Options

1. Steel Window Shutters- Steel window shutters provide an additional layer of protection against break-ins. These sturdy shutters can be locked from the inside, preventing unauthorized access through the windows.



2. Steel Window Bars- Installing steel bars on your container windows can deter potential thieves and offer an extra security measure. These bars are made of high-grade steel, making it difficult for intruders to breach your container.



3. Steel Door Bars- Steel door bars reinforce the strength of your container doors. By adding these bars, you make it significantly harder for anyone to force entry, ensuring your container remains secure.



4. AC Cover and Bars- Air conditioning units can be vulnerable entry points. Adding covers and bars specifically designed for AC units not only protects the equipment but also prevents unauthorized access through these openings.



5. Lighting/Electrical Package- Proper lighting is a crucial deterrent for theft. Installing a lighting and electrical package inside and around your container can illuminate dark areas, reducing the risk of break-ins. Well-lit spaces are less attractive to intruders.



6. Lock Box- A lock box offers an additional level of security for your container’s locking mechanism. This steel box covers the lock, making it difficult for thieves to tamper with or cut the lock.




Other Security Enhancements

Motion Sensors and Alarms- Motion sensors and alarms can detect unauthorized movement inside or around your container. When triggered, these devices can alert you or security personnel, providing an immediate response to potential break-ins.


Security Cameras- Installing security cameras around your shipping container allows you to monitor activities in real-time. Cameras can act as a deterrent and also provide valuable evidence in the event of a security breach.


Alarm System- An integrated alarm system can offer comprehensive protection. When an alarm is triggered, it can alert you through various means, such as a phone call or text message, ensuring you’re always aware of any security threats.


Fencing- Surrounding your container with a fence can provide an additional physical barrier. A high, sturdy fence can prevent unauthorized access and make it harder for intruders to reach your container.


At XCaliber Container, we prioritize the security of your assets. Our team can help you choose and install the right security features to meet your specific needs. By investing in these security enhancements, you can ensure that your items remain safe and secure, giving you peace of mind.
