40FT HIGH CUBE SIDE OPENING CONTAINERS

This specialised piece of equipment has standard cargo doors to one 8ft end and full concertina cargo doors to one 40ft side panel. As a result of the increased weight presented by the concertina doors, both the roof and the floor of side opening containers are significantly re-enforced which does result in a loss of internal height within the container. Side opening or side loading containers are mainly available as new units. These containers were initially used by the military, in most cases, for the transportation of military equipment and weaponry. Their easy access and re-enforced floors make them perfect for the easy loading and un-loading of over-sized equipment, the storage or movement of heavier equipment, loading by forklift truck or for an interesting donor unit for modification into an events container like a bar or food outlet or into a process enclosure where access and removal of plant is regularly required. If the standard 40ft length is not suitable for your application, please call 0333 600 6260 to discuss your needs with us, we have the capability to custom build containers or fabricate existing containers to suit your requirements.
