It concerns the distance between the shipping containers.
TC606: 5,88 meter (see drawings)
TC806: 7,80 meter (see drawings)
TC812: 7,80 meter (see drawings)
TC1012: 9,79 meter (see drawings)Can the container shelters also be fastened without fastening brackets?
Yes, this is possible. The shelter must then be screwed in or welded. However, fastening clips 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 canvas 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 warranty on PVC. The warranty on PE is 3 years.Do the container shelters fit on all types of containers?
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.Can the containers be placed closer together than the indicated distance?
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.Is the canvas available in different colours?
A PE canvas is only available in white. For PVC you can choose between green and white. PE is not available in green because the lifespan of a green PE canvas is considerably shorter than white.Does the container shelter also fit on a high cube sea container?
The front and back facades of our container shelters are tailored to the ISO container height of 259 cm. A higher container thus means that the façade doesn’t reach the ground and leaves a gap of around 30 cm. A container shelter without facades therefore is perfectly suitable for a high cube sea container.Can container shelters be placed behind each other?
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 canvas) 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.How far apart must the containers be placed?
TC600: 5,90 meters
TC800: 7,80 meters
TC1012: 9,79 meters
The exact distances are also clearly described in the construction drawings and installation manuals. You can find these underdownloads.Can two TC606 shelters be connected to a total length of 12 meter?
Two container shelters TC606 (6x6m) can be connected to create a single shelter with a length of 12 meter (to fit 40ft containers). This is simple and doesn’t require any changes to the standard product. The connection (overlapping fabric) is entirely windproof and waterproof after tensioning the ropes.
.Do you have structural calculations available?
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.Can a container shelter be installed on office units?
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 at least 259 cm high.Is the tent canvas fireproof?
The PE canvas complies with the CPAI-84-1995 standard, the PVC canvas complies with the EN13501-1 standard. (view the certificates on our download page)
