What are container mounted shelters?

As you can see from the adjacent image, and the images above, shipping container mounted shelters are two or more ISO or Connex shipping containers (20ft -6m or 40ft-12m) placed in a parallel formation. First, we use galvanised steel frame which is designed and assembled to lock into the corner castings of the shipping containers. Afterwards, we tension a robust, laminated PVC cover over the frame creating a rugged shelter instantly. Finally, to make the structure perfect for your needs, we can add doors, end walls, ventilation louvres, lighting which are a few of the many options.

These are the key benefits of container mounted structures

  • First, it is a low-cost solution for secure storage coupled with a large working area
  • Second, these are tough and long-lasting structures in any environment
  • Third, they create a clean, dry, well-sealed area for working or storage
