Why attach lighting to a shipping container

Domino Clamps - The smartest way to attach almost anything to shipping containers.

In this blog we look at some of the reasons you might want to add lighting to a shipping container. But it’s not only the practical reasons for adding lighting to consider, as restrictions are slowly lifted stage lighting or festoon can be used to enhance the appearance of a venue or concession stand making it more appealing to potential customers.


As well as navigating in the dark more easily, external lighting provides additional security after dark. Appropriate light levels on construction sites and site venues can help everyone working on the site itself, illuminate emergency exits and also help prevent trespassers. And when used in conjunction with one of our CCTV pole kits, the container can become the base for both the CCTV camera and the lighting to illuminate the area at night, so the camera can continue to operate into the hours of darkness. 


Even if there is a permanent structure or building on site, it may not always be possible to make the necessary modifications to attach lighting or you might simply not want to, especially if the lighting is only a temporary requirement. 

Attaching lighting to a shipping container is quick and easy with Domino Clamps and requires no drilling or welding. And with no damage it's an ideal solution to containers which have been rented in, without having any issues with the container hire company when they get returned. 


Under the Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974, it is a legal responsibility to provide adequate lighting so that any work carried out can be undertaken safely and effectively. If work needs to carry on beyond daylight hours, artificial lighting must be used.

With your lighting attached to a shipping container, you can provide the required lighting without it presenting additional trip hazards or obstructions to pedestrian or vehicular traffic. 


Hiring in lighting towers or masts can be expensive, so making use of shipping containers on site can offer a real cost saving. When the lighting is no longer required it can be quickly and easily removed and packed up ready for use on the next project.
