Our Container Shelters

Our Double Truss Dome Shelters

There is a large variety of widths and lengths available in both the domestic and commercial Container Trader Shelter range. They start from 6m wide and can go up to 17m wide, with an assortment of lengths and heights in between. Container Shelters are engineered to handle heavy winds and the rough Australian terrain. The shelters are constructed with a robust steel frame, that has the capability to be bolted or welded to the top rails of a shipping container. They are manufactured in polyethylene fabric which is waterproof, and they are manufactured with a protection fabric from the sun also known as UV Block-out Fabric. The materials used to create your Shelter are also completely recyclable which is beneficial for your site, and the environment.


Container Traders offer accessories to modify the Container Shelter to better suit your site specifications and shelter requirements. You can add a partial end wall to the shelter, or a full end wall for extra coverage. The end wall option also can be upgraded to include a Personal Access Door, for entry exit from the rear of the shelter depending on your site specific needs. If you are required to create a higher dimension from the floor height to the roof of the Container Shelter, we can suggest buying additional shipping containers which can be double stacked on the site which will give you 5.2m high from the ground up. This also means, you are able to utilize the additional storage space inside the shipping containers.

Constructing your Container Shelter is a process we have simplified for our clients to ensure the fastest and easiest installation takes place on your site. The installation process will vary from the different sizes of your cover, however we will need to ensure you have your shipping containers accurately placed opposite each other prior to erecting the shelter. The Shelter can be welded to the top rail of the shipping container, or bolted. If you’re supplied with a welded top rail Container Shelter, the cover will be fixed to the shipping containers. However, if bolted to the containers, is a little easier to remove from the site and relocate to another. There are no specific foundations or footings required for the container shelter as your shipping containers will act as a solid and fit foundation. Shipping containers do need a flat surface to be placed on – so prior to the delivery of your shipping containers, ensure you have leveled the grounds. Container Traders can arrange your shelter installation through subcontracted companies, however if you have access to 3-4 handyman who have half a day to assist you on site, there is an instruction manual that is supplied with your shelter which most our clients find easy to erect without the extra fees of subcontractors.
