Shipping Container Canopies: New Range for 2018

Our shipping container canopies have proven to be an increasingly popular option with a diverse range of customers. The temporary or semi-permanent roof structures that can span between 2x 20ft or 40ft shipping containers offer superb value for anyone needing some covered working or storage space

Care of this interest we are pleased to announce that we have a completely new and much bigger range to offer in 2018 in addition to our previous range.

40ft shipping container canopy 12m wide shelterThis new range of canopies offers an increased range of options, now allowing for between 6 and 20 metres of covered working space between 2 x 20ft or 40ft shipping containers. Much like our original range, multiple canopies can be linked together if a larger structure is needed, so these can be set up in any multiple of 20ft long.

Added to this, the covers on the range are made from cross-woven HDPE which is a lighter, stronger and longer lasting material than any PVC cover option (which will start degrading from day one). Care of this improved design and quality considerations this particular range comes with a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Specially adapted for the UK / EU market with max 2 metre sections that are simple to manage and easy to replace if damaged. This is a tried and tested design and we have professional UK based help and support in terms if installation services and stocks of spares available meaning that you are not relying on any spare parts being shipped in from the far east, should they be required.

With the new improved range of width options, we believe the applications for these canopies are nearly endless. Plant, machinery, crop and aggregate storage will always be popular with any cost-effective structure like this, but we also believe the applications go as far as mini aircraft hangars, bus and coach depots, garages and mechanics workshops, temporary or semi-permanent warehouses and retail spaces (garden centres, furniture warehouses and more). These are just a few examples of what our shipping container canopies have been/are being used for.

60ft shipping container canopy 20m wide shelterThese canopies can be built on single or double stacked containers (either standard 8ft 6 high or high cube 9ft 6 high containers) meaning, if necessary, that the canopy structure will sit at a minimum 19ft (Circa 5.8 metre) clearance at its lowest point. Great news if you need to store a large volume of giraffes, double decker busses or other very tall items.

For industrial sites and similar, the shipping containers to each side of the canopy can also be modified to assist the main canopy use. We can offer lined and insulated office units with secure doors, anti-vandal windows and electrics as required. We can add in cargo doors into the side of a container or add in roller shutter access to allow the space to be used for secure tool storage and similar with very easy access. offer the UK’s largest online range of shipping containers for sale with a nationwide network of storage and conversion yards and crane equipped delivery vehicles.
