In the product specifications you will find the maximum wind and snow load as described in the official structural calculations. We recommend that you only place the product in wind and snow zones that do not exceed these standards. If you nevertheless choose to install the storage building or tent in a region with higher maximum wind and snow loads, please bear in mind that this is at your own risk.

No. We only supply the back and front walls with fabric door.
In fact, when you leave the door closed, there is no difference with a wall without a door. The zippers on both sides of the fabric door completely close the wall.
It concerns the distance between the shipping containers.
- TC403: 3,84 meter (see drawings)
- TC606: 5,88 meter (see drawings)
- TC806: 7,80 meter (see drawings)
- TC812: 7,80 meter (see drawings)
- TC1012: 9,79 meter (see drawings)
Yes, this is possible. The shelter must then be screwed in or welded. However, fastening brackets have a number of important advantages:
- The containers aren’t damaged
- The installation is much quicker
- You can easily dismantle the container shelter
The PVC fabric is stronger than PE (i.e. polyester or HDPE) and is therefore more resistant to weather effects. PVC has a longer lifespan. We have a 10-year descending warranty on PVC. The warranty on PE is 3 years.
The container shelters and the optional front and back walls are designed for ISO containers of 6 and 12 meters (20 and 40 feet) long and 259 cm high.
They can. The base rail will then be further from the container edge and can be anchored with screws or welded. The back wall is then too wide but can be placed behind the containers. A front wall is not possible.
Both the PVC and the HDPE fabric are available in white and dark green.
The front and back walls of our container shelters are tailored to the ISO container height of 259 cm. A higher container thus means that the wall doesn’t reach the ground and leaves a gap of around 30 cm. A container shelter without walls therefore is perfectly suitable for a high cube sea container.
All our container shelters can be linked to each other lengthwise. This can be done easily and without adjustments to the product. The connection (overlap of the fabric) is entirely wind- and watertight after tightening the cords.
Placing multiple containers behind each other allows you to create a shelter in multiples of 20 feet.
Yes. Using our container clamps does require an edge of 50-80mm in height. Our clamps cannot be fastened without this edge and the shelter will then have to be attached to the unit using screws or welded.
If you would also like a front and/or back wall, the unit must be 259 cm high.
The PE fabric complies with the CPAI-84-1995 standard, the PVC fabric complies with the DIN 4102-1 class B2 standard. (view the certificates on the download page)
Kroftman usually supplies the container shelters and storage tents directly from stock. Warehouse tents have a lead time of 4 to 6 weeks.
Kroftman begins production of the H-series storage buildings and delivers them with all accessories and options as soon as the payment obligation has been fulfilled. Our lead and delivery time starts from the date of payment, depending on the type of storage building. For small, non-insulated storage buildings, this timeframe is usually 6 to 8 weeks. For insulated storage buildings, it takes between 12 and 14 weeks. We are in permanent contact with you about the order, payment, documents, delivery, possible assembly and follow-up.
You will receive, at the time of shipment, information on the expected delivery date and contact details of the carrier.
Of all our storage buildings, storage tents and container shelters we have structural calculations available in German. These are available on request and free of charge.
For these structural calculations we work with German engineers. These structural calculations always meet the ′Eurocode′ standard supplemented by German codes DIN+DIBt ensuring wide European and International acceptance. To maintain the legal status, we only provide the original untranslated documents in the German language. Should this cause you any difficulties, you can use these documents as a basis to ask a local engineer to draw up a structural calculation in your own language which meets your local requirements.
That depends on the product and the local regulations. A permit is usually not necessary for temporary placement. For (semi) permanent placements, it’s best to contact your municipality.
You can download the construction drawings to apply for a building permit. Upon request we can also supply the structural calculations entirely free of charge and obligation.
To guarantee fast and trouble-free assembly, we make the inspection and assembly conditions mandatory for customers who have the product assembled by our own assembly team. However, the instructions mentioned in the document naturally also apply to do-it-yourself assembly. We strongly advise you to follow this so that you will not be faced with any surprises during assembly.
