Tell Manufacturing Simplifies Installation of Shipping Container Doors with Introduction of Telstar CD 


Ready to Install Door Contributes to Labor Savings

LITITZ, PENNSYLVANIA, Apr 22, 2024 – Tell Manufacturing, a recognized leader in commercial-grade security hardware and hollow metal doors, is offering an all-in-one, pre-assembled door/frame combination specifically designed for shipping container buildings that can be used as offices, equipment storage, and commercial spaces. Manufactured with a polystyrene core, the Telstar CD Engineered Container Door is made from 20-gauge galvannealed steel and a 16-gauge frame, with an outer frame ready to weld in two easy steps.

“Retrofitting shipping containers is becoming more and more common as portable buildings are on the rise, and now the process of installing commercial-grade doors on those containers is easier, faster and more economical thanks to the Telstar CD," said Robert Huang, senior marketing manager at Tell Manufacturing. "The Telstar CD significantly minimizes required labor by simplifying the process in just two easy steps, marking a dramatic leap forward in efficiency."

Previously, crews installing a commercial door on a shipping container had to adhere to the traditional method – cutting and welding heavy tube steel into a frame followed by attaching the door. The Telstar CD’s all-in-one design makes it easier to handle and install than traditional shipping container doors. After measuring and cutting the door opening, the Telstar CD can be simply placed and welded with a 2-step EZ-weld process.

The Telstar CD by Tell Manufacturing is now available for customer orders.
