Shelf Brackets are a cost effective DIY storage solution that help keep your cargo neatly against the walls of the container and not on the floor. These brackets are easy to install and as little as three brackets can give shelving capacity for the length of a 20ft shipping container!

The three shelf bracket unit is supplied without the wooden shelves, these can be purchased from any good hardware store or merchants at a reasonable price. Shelves are 18.5 inches 470mm deep and have a weight capacity 250 Kgs / 550 lbs per bracket arm (500Kgs or 1100 lbs per bracket). Based on a standard 8ft 6 high shipping container you have up to 32inches or 81cm clearance below the bottom shelf to the floor. (Add 12inches or 30cm for a high cube container)

Shipping Container Pipe Racks

Pipe Racks are easily fitted to the side of the container and offer reliable storage solution. They take just moments to install as you simply hang them on the container D-rings (located at the top of the side walls) and there you have your pipe storage facility. Easy to attach and remove when needed, these brackets will not damage your container, nor is there any risk of top heavy loads toppling over. Added to this you get circa 60cm / 2ft of unobstructed space underneath the racks for your general storage needs. (This is based on a standard height shipping container).

The brackets have 4 arms fitted at a 30 degree angle. The support arms are 16 inches deep, gusseted for extra strength with a roll stop at the end of each arm to stop any pipes rolling off.

The pipe racks are Ideal for builders and plumbers with a large project jobs, builders merchants, sports clubs with large amounts of equipment and any large site like a university, tourist attraction or hotel that might need to keep a range of pipework on standby.

We received a great service from Budget Shipping Containers and will definitely be using them in future.”
