What is a Conex Box

(cviiyctuvb) #1

The lock box is a steel box welded to the right hand door which overlaps a staple welded to the left hand door.
A padlock, normally CISA type 285 66 can then be attached inside the lock box through the staple and is then
protected from direct attack, hindering attempts to gain entry to the container.


ISO markings and a consolidated data plate allow worldwide intermodal transport and are updated as
necessary.


Take note that customs authorities in some countries may also have their own container seal regulations as
part of their national security.


Rubber gaskets are fitted to the container doors during the manufacturing process and prevent water ingress.
Door gaskets are designed to present two or more fins against the structure or adjacent door. These are
generally flexible but when the gasket is damaged, they may become stiff thus jamming the door closed, or
preventing it from being closed.


Conex boxes often take a beating, traveling around the world, being exposed to freezing conditions and rust
due to seawater or when the frost has melted.


During the cold season, and in freezing parts of the world, our conex box tool can benefit the opening and
closing of frozen conex box doors and hard to open or rusted containers.


Injuries often occur as a result of personnel trying to open and close difficult container doors, and often are the
result of inappropriate techniques being used to open them.

A Conex Box (also known as Intermodal Container, ISO Container,Railroad Container, and certain Truck
Trailers) is a large standardized shipping container, designed and built for intermodal freight transport.
Conex Boxes can be used across different modes of transport. They can go from ship to rail to truck, without
unloading and reloading their cargo.
