Unique fastening brackets
To assemble and disassemble the container canopy easily and quickly, Kroftman has developed unique fastening brackets. With these brackets you attach the roof to the container without damaging it by welding or bolting. The fastening brackets can be ordered as an option.
Unique roll-up system with crank for the fabric door
The fumbling with rolling up the fabric door is now a thing of the past. Kroftman has developed a unique roll-up system that allows the fabric door to be opened and closed completely by just one person; easy, quick, tight and without a ladder or platform.
Temporary storage or workspace
A Kroftman container shelter (or container canopy) is a quick, inexpensive and flexible solution for storing equipment and goods. An ideal way to make a temporary shelter and protect material from sun, wind and precipitation. Simply position two standard shipping containers (often already present at construction sites) parallel to each other and mount the container canopy between the containers. These container canopies are widely used by building and construction companies as ‘site shelter’ for sawing, welding and storage.
In practice, these container shelters are often used as a semi-permanent solution. Kroftman has taken this into account in product development and all our types of shelters are stronger than the minimum standard EN13782. They are as such regularly deployed as a sawmill shed or work tent for long-term construction projects.
Opening and closing a fabric door in a container shelter is quite a challenge. As a consequence the door is not rolled up properly, which results in a damaged door or a situation where the door is always left open.
The Kroftman solution consists of a keder profile in the fabric door that, with the help of a removable crank handle, rolls up the door to the top. If you order a front and / or rear wall with a white TC606, TC612, TC806 or TC812, you will receive this unique roll-up system as standard!
With our clear manual, you can install our container canopy completely independently. No experience is required. You only need some standard tools and an AWP or mobile scaffold. The fastening brackets developed by Kroftman are available optionally. This ensures the shortest possible installation time and a guaranteed solid fastening of the shelter without damaging the containers!
From container shelter to storage tent
The container shelters can optionally be ordered with a front and back wall with a fabric door. These unique walls have a steel construction with lateral wind bracing for extra strength. The fabric wall has an overpressure opening with windbreak mesh to prevent the shelter from ‘blowing away’. This opening has a cover flap on the outside against rain and powder snow. For rolling up the fabric door, Kroftman has developed a unique mechanism that makes it possible to roll up the door with one person, regardless of the size of the door. These optional front and/or back walls allow you to easily change the container canopy into a storage tent and make optimal use of the space.
