Our 24m x 20m shipping container canopy is the largest canopy that we supply and is designed to fit on two rows of 2 x 40ft shipping containers giving you a massive 480m2 of covered space to work in. Whilst we’ve suggested using 2 x 40ft shipping containers per side, you can use 4 x 20ft shipping containers on each side to suit your requirements.
these structures can also be made even larger if needed. these can be built on top of high cube containers, or even double stacked shipping containers to gain extra height. We can also extend the length with linking kits to be any multiple of 20ft in length. We can also convert and modify the shipping containers to the sides to offer secure tools storage, electrical points or office space as may be required.
Our canopies are well designed and very solid and have been specifically designed to meet current UK regulations and provide a huge amount of covered space for a very low cost and can be easily demounted for use elsewhere.
Designed specifically for use with shipping containers, our canopies provide a temporary or permanent solution and usually, do not require planning permission.
The frame work is made from 75mm square box section and are the strongest canopies available in the UK at this time. When erected, the roof is circular meaning its got good resistance to high winds and allows for snow loading.
The canopy itself is produced in 2m sections making it very easy to assemble and maintain. To assemble the canopy, you can either do it yourself or for an additional cost, we can send our installation team in to facilitate this.
The DIY build will require at least 3-people and a lifting platform for the canopy sections and the installers. The lifter for the canopy sections must be able to go at least 8m high. And when fully erected, your canopy will be about 8m off the ground at its highest point.

Basic canopy assembly considerations
Before installing your canopy, please ensure your rows of containers are equidistant and parallel, with the height of each container being level to the next one. You should also ensure the containers are level across their length, width and across the diagonals to ensure the cargo doors open and close with ease.
Equipment required for installation
- Forklift or telehandler with a reach of at least 8m
- A platform such as a scissor lift for the installers to work on at height
- An angle grinder with both grinding and cutting blades
- At least 3-people to help install the canopy
- Container canopy performance
Our shipping container canopies were originally designed by an Australian engineering company but have been modified to comply with current EU and UK legislation. So, these are not a new to the market product and have been in use in Europe for a number of years.
The only general maintenance you need to carry out at fixed intervals is to ensure all nuts and bolts are tight and the tension of the canopy is correct. Whilst the canopy is designed to withstand high winds, it can act very much like a sail so, you must ensure your containers are filled with ballast or they are anchored to the ground.
Door and end Wall Options
As you can imagine these canopies leave a huge 20m span of open space between your containers which, subject to your requirements, can sometimes be a hindrance. They can come with a full end wall to suit for additional cost:
- Full End Wall to suit 20m wide canopy £11,680.00 + VAT
Unlike our other ranges of canopies these 20m wide don’t have Partial End Wall or D panel options and don’t come available with any zip access doors. If you have any enquiries or questions though of course please do ask and we’ll do our best to meet your requirements.
All end wall prices and working at heights figures are quoted based on the canopy going on a standard height *8ft 6 high) shipping containers. If you are working with taller ‘high cube’ or double stacked containers we will need to re-quote for any end wall options and also your max working at height figures quotes on this page will need adjusting.
