Fancy a load more space than a shipping container can give? A shipping container canopy can either be self built or we can provide a team to come out and install it for you. With this option container space can cost as little as 40 pence per cubic foot and so offers a great way to get a lot of space, fast! The list of possible applications is almost endless, from a temporary barn or bus depot, workshops, painting bays, event stages the list goes on.
The container canopy (or container awning) structure is designed to be easily built and dismantled and can be used for temporary or semi-permanent requirements. It is built out of max 2m sections that can be easily and cost effectively replaced in the event of damage and has been designed and brought to market by a company specialising in farmers polytunnels, so they are very experienced with similar structures.
The framework is built from heavy duty 60mm steelwork with galvanised finish, with a heavy duty 520gsm fire retardant PVC covering that meets and exceeds BS 7837:1996. The cover is supplied in 2m sections which are easier to handle, store, install and replace if necessary.
With the top of the canopy at 2880mm above the height of the containers you put them on (or total height on a standard container = 5750mm from floor to centre of canopy), and with between 4500 and 8600 mm width inside the ‘rain-free’ space you gain is impressive. You can also add these to double stacked containers – when using high cubes this can give you a massive 19ft of clearance from the floor to the bottom of the canopy. With double decker busses running at 14-15ft most operations will be hard pushed to struggle with the capacity in these canopies.
Also now available with an end frame cover and dee panel options to allow for a more enclosed space.
For instillation a cherry picker or similar platform for working at heights is needed.
We can supply a team to come and install the canopy for you, this is a 3 man 2-3 day job and costs will vary depending on mileage. Method statements and risk assessments are available in advance, and our guys have cherry picker licences that can also be made available for inspection on request.
Because of its range of uses across many industries we have canopies to fit both 20ft and 40ft containers, please contact us for more information.
Prices start at circa £2500 + VAT for a 20ft container canopy, with mainland delivery and without instillation or end panels.
Instillation prices will vary depended on geography, if contacting us for a quote to include instillation we will please need to know where we will be building this for you.
