how it works

the system

you can open the long side of the container using a hinge. the extendable pod creates extra floor space and the unique rail system makes it easy to use. the part that gets “out of the box” is made out of double glazed windows and an insulated roof, all in a very strong water tight steel frame. opening and closing the glamtainer takes just 10 minutes, and can be done manually by one person.



like every shipping container the container part of the glamtainer is made of steel. only the glamtainer is reinforced on all levels, and this makes it one of the strongest shipping containers ever.

inside the walls are fixed to a light cage metal framing, after the steel caged structure is complete it is first treated with fire retardant and highly insulating spray foam.the walls itself are made of fireproof gypsum boards and a selection of finishes available.


in every glamtainer the following materials are used:

  • high density spray foam insulation on all concealed surfaces

  • double glazed windows 

  • durable cladding 

  • certified electrical and plumbing fit-out and fixtures 

  • environmentally sustainable flooring 

  • glamtainer can provide a complete internal package including all furnishings.

  • they can be standard or customised to each clients needs.

  • the use of our selection of materials guarantee a high standard of quality finish and together they create a sensational look and feel.
