This 12m x 10m container canopy is ideal for a number of large storage and workshop applications. Servicing cranes, trucks or busses or storage of plant & equipment, aggregates, hay or straw and loads of other items all work well inside these canopy structures. We can also convert the shipping containers at each side to offer office space or secure tool storage with easy access and lights and electrical points for example.
These canopies have been specially adapted for the UK / EU market and they are well designed and solid structures built from max 2 metre sections which are straightforward and cost effective to replace if needed. these should also clas as temporary structures and be exempt from planning permission for most sites.
Made from 75mm square box sections our canopies are the strongest ones we’ve found on the current UK market. The semi-circular roof if strong in high winds and allows for snow loads meeting BS EN 1191-1-3:2003
Assembly service can be offered at an additional cost. The vast majority of our customers to date have taken on their own construction. To build a canopy yourself please take not of the basic assembly considerations below.
We can also provide an assembly service (at additional cost) however the majority of our customers to date have taken on their own build. Building will require minimum 3 people and you will require the capacity to work safely at heights. You will need to be able to lift components such as the roof arches as high as 8 metres on our largest canopies whilst building.
When erected off two standard height 40ft shipping containers (8’6” high or 2590mm) this 10m wide canopy will stand 2800mm higher than the roofs of the containers at its tallest point offering a good 5390mm from the floor to the tip of the arch.
Basic Assembly Considerations.
Building will require minimum 3 people and you will require a cherry picker or similar equipment for working at heights. . You will need to be able to lift components such as the roof arches as high as 8 metres on our largest canopies whilst building.(Based on your shipping container canopy being built on standard height containers, if you are building your canopy on top of high cube containers, or double stacked containers, you will need to adjust your capacity for working at heights accordingly)
You will need to place the shipping containers at the correct widths before starting to build the canopy and the containers must be perfectly parallel. If there is a 10 metre gap between the containers at one and and a 9.5 metre gap at the other end, the canopy will not fit correctly.
The containers should also be as level as they can with each other. – this is advised for basic container operation and is essential with a canopy on the top too! There is a small tolerance in the design for a slight slope but you should plan to have these on a flat, level base.Let us know well in advance if this will not be possible.
Specialist equipment required
To build this canopy you will require:
- Access to welder or fabricator
- Forklift or telehandler with 8m lift capable of working on the ground on and around your canopy.
- Safe working at height equipment min 6 metres high, eg a scissor lift capable of working on the ground where your shelter is being built.
- Angle Grinder with cutting and grinding blades
- Minimum 3 people required to build.
Step by step assembly instructions are included with each purchase including a complete list of tools needed. The above are the major specialised items that a lot of customers may not have access to.
How will these container canopies perform with UK weather.
Built originally by an Australian engineering company, these shelters have been modified and adapted to meet UK and EU legislation and have been in wide use across europe for some years. We’ve met a number of canopy companies over the years and this is the best quality build we have met to date.
In terms of general maintenance its important that the canopy cover remains tightly tensioned at all times. The canopy will not split or fail in high winds, but the circular roof structure can act as a sail. For this reason its important to secure the whole structure, either by anchoring the containers or by adding ballast into the shipping containers. We recommend periodic inspections to ensure the canopy remains well tensioned.
Door and end Wall Options
These canopies can come with a wide range of end wall options.
We can offer fully closed end walls, partial end walls or Dee panels (covered from the level of the container roof line upwards) and we can offer a zip-up end wall which allows for access wia a heavy duty zip opening* – of course if you need a specific door and can’t see the option below please let us know as we likely have the option to customise an end panel if needed.
- Partial End Wall to suit 10m canopy £1270.00+ VAT additional
- Full End Wall to suit 10m canopy £1880.00+ VAT additional
- Full End Wall with Zip Access Door* to suit 10m canopy £2260.00+ VAT additional
*10mtr zip up door is 6.5m wide x 4.5m high in the centre of the panel.
