The variables inside a shipping container are always changing. When the combination of those variables creates an environment prone to humidity, condensation will happen. The above-mentioned variables include, but are not limited to the following:

► Humidity
► Interior temperature
► Exterior temperature
► Wind direction
► Wind speed
► Foundation
► Adequate air flow under the container
► Direct sunlight to roof
► Direct sunlight to walls / doors
► Type of contents stored
► The volume of contents stored inside
► Color of container (specifically the roof)
► Number of stock vents in the container
► Utilizes Duraflo 680812 CSA Approved Gable Vent

Unfortunately, stock container vents are not enough to prevent condensation. Typically used containers have between 2 and 4 vents and the actual total air passage hole is about the size of a dime. These vents are designed to keep seawater out and are meant more as a method to equalize pressure than exchange air.

    Step-By-Step Instructions:

    1. Select the area and make it clean, then mark your cutting lines using the paper template that is included in this kit.
    2. Cut the holes using a zip cutter.
    3. Place the vent unit into the hole and make sure it looks even.
    4. Drill 10 holes, 5 on each side.
    5. Rivet or fasten screws.
    6. Apply caulking all around to ensure the vent is properly sealed.
