Open Top Shipping Containers

An open top container is typically available in a 20ft length. This specialised piece of equipment has standard cargo doors to one 8ft end and an open roof which can be covered with tarpaulin for safe transit of goods. The tilt is then supported by 19 roof bows. The rear header on the open top container can be removed or swung to allow easy entry of oversized cargo. Open top containers are mainly available as used units and Lion Containers currently have them available nationwide. The predominant uses that we supply open top containers for are:

  • To store over sized equipment that cannot fit into a standard 8ft 6ins high or high cube 9ft 6ins high container.
  • Process Enclosures.
  • Generator and Equipment Enclosures.
  • Shipping.
