How to install steel bars in a shipping container home.

The installation of steel bars into the windows and doors of a shipping container home.

Once you have cut the holes in the shipping container then you will need to install the window frame set up before you weld on the metal bars.

This window set up first involves the 2x2x2 “C” bars welded into the shipping container cutout. Next the wood frame is installed and then finally the glass. Once this has been completed then the welding of the steel bars can begin. However, if you are using aluminum window frames then you will need to weld the steel bars into the container before the frames. The temperature of the welding machine would melt the aluminum.
The actual welding of the steel bars is best seen in the following video:

When we create the steel bars we use different designs each time. We avoid the standard “jail like” bar effect by not placing the bars horizontal or vertical.

Also remember the screens. The window screens must be removable in order to clean, repair and replace them. Therefore whatever type of screen set up you create in your window design, remember to create a slid in design.
