Gantry Containers for the Heavy Industries Sector

We have developed a new range of Gantry Containers to help Heavy Industies load and store their goods with the ease. No longer will you need forklifts, trolley jacks or any other heavy lifting equipment to load your container. Our ganty sytems allow a one-man operation to load and unload heavy items inside your container.

Take a look at the video showcasing one of our 20ft side opening gantry containers, and how it can help you and your business.

Our Gantry Containers help load goods with ease!

Our Gantry Containers are ready to order, built to your needs. But you may be thinking what is this Gantry System built into this container and how can it help me? The gantry system is comparable to an overhead crane which is fixed to the roof of the container, designed for multi-axis operation with an overhead bridge. The arm of the crane can extend outside of the container to pick up heavy items. The block and tackle pulley can lift items up and lower them once the gantry arm has been pulled back into the container maneuvered to the desired position. This can all be operated by one person easily as the gantry can safely lift anything up to 1 tonne in weight. Heavy items can be delivered next to the Gantry Container ready for loading, no need for an onsite forklift.

Gantry Containers can be HAZMAT Certified

We can also convert these Gantry Containers into Dangerous Goods Units for storing Class 3 Dangerous Goods (Flammable Liquids). The Gantry Crane is particularly handly in lifting large barrels, and with the inclusion of our drum racks, can be lifted and stored with ease. We can also retrofit these units to use used as explosive storage is required, give us a call for more details.

Gantry Container Types & Sizes

We can build these Gantry Containers out of 10ft, 20ft and 40ft shipping containers sizes – all fully engineered and certified! For our 20ft and 40ft units, we can install the Gantry unit in General Purpose, High Cube or Side Opening Containers. Side Opening Gantry Containers give you the most access when loading with heavy items. Easy load the crane with your heavy goods and move the item anywhere inside the container. It’s a one man operation, easy and efficient.

We can also retrofit these Gantry Containers to house hazardous materials (Dangerous Goods) or even explosives. These units are a great asset for the mining and construction sectors who need facilities to store their heavy equipment and dangerous goods.
