Openings are provided in the walls of a sterilization container, particularly one for surgical instruments, to allow for the introduction of a sterilant gas, and a filter element is provided internally of these openings. To prevent external objects from entering the openings in the surface and penetrating the filter element, a relatively stiff perforate sheet, preferably formed of metal, is placed between the surface of the container and the filter element, the perforations in the sheet being offset from the openings in the container wall.
