Our temporary warehousing structures are demountable and constructed using shipping containers and a shipping container canopy. The building needs no footings or foundations as the canopy is mounted on the shipping containers, is quick to assemble and thanks to its modular design is easy to repair and maintain.
Being a temporary demountable structure, you will usually not require planning permission but, its always advisable to check as it’s often very difficult to get ‘after the fact’ permission.
Costing a fraction of the cost of constructing a permanent warehouse, this is an ideal solution for creating a temporary warehouse that is demountable and easily transported to another location as required.
Using shipping containers and canopies, our temporary structures are ideal for warehousing and logistics with other uses including scanning tunnels, security check points etc.
Depending on your requirements, you can choose canopies that are 20ft, 40ft, 60ft or 80ft in length with widths ranging from 6m to 20m. If you need a longer canopy, we can supply a linking kit so you can extend by any multiple of 20ft in length.
The canopies are mounted on top of either standard height containers (8ft 6’’) or high cube containers (9ft 6’’) and if you need more headroom, simply double stack the containers. We recommend having ballast in the lower containers though. As an alternative, the containers can be converted into offices and workshops and, with the addition of a set or our personnel stairs, access to the second tier of containers can be facilitated.
You can choose to assemble the canopies yourself or ask us to arrange for installation (not included in the canopy cost). But, you will need 3-people to do this and a scissor lift to assemble the canopy. The containers must be level and parallel with each other otherwise, you will not be able to fit the canopy.
The canopy comes in 2 metre sections making it easy to assemble and repair should it get damaged.
The high tensile structural steel frame complies with BS4360 or EN1000025 with the canopy being made from a composite 2 crosswoven HDPD cover which is a better-quality option than heavy-duty PVC.
The canopy has a 70% light transition, a wind loading that complies with BS EN 1991-1-4:2005 and a snow loading that complies with BS EN 1191-1-3:2003.
The 60 and 80ft container canopies can only be supplied with 1 x full end wall whereas the shorter canopies can be supplied with a partial end wall (D panel), and full end wall and a full end wall with zip door access.
