Container Shelters Brisbane

Here at Shipping Containers Brisbane we have a great range of container shelters designed to store and protect items like industrial machinery, farm equipment, produce, vehicles and mining equipment. Wind, rain, heat, cold, sun, frost – a container shelter protects from them all, and has the added benefit of being able to be shifted to a new area when required. There are many industries that will benefit from a container shelter, including mining, construction, agricultural, nurseries, factories, workshops and more.

Dual Benefits of Container Shelter Design

The really clever thing about shipping container shelters is their dual benefits of utility and shelter. The shipping containers that form the base of the shelter not only provide a secure foundation for the shelter, they also have all the benefits that shipping containers bring, and can be used for secure storage, or as a functional item like a site office or first aid room.

How a Container Shelter Works

The container shelter design is as simple as it is practical. Two shipping containers are placed parallel to each other (forming the base), leaving the space in the middle for the goods that need to be sheltered. A domed shelter is then secured to the shipping containers to create a high-arched cover.

Getting a higher roof for larger equipment is as easy as building a base of two containers stacked on top of each other which create a 5 metre high wall and – of course – more functional shipping container space. Use one for a site office, another for accommodation, another as a lunch room, and another as a first aid room for example, and you have a completely functional worksite and shelter, all in one.

Bigger shelters (rather than higher) can be built using the four shipping containers placed end to end instead of being stacked. If the space needs to be completely enclosed, end walls can also be put in place.

Though originally designed to be portable, the utility and cost-effectiveness of shipping container shelters have proved an economical solution to many businesses requiring large-scale shelter, and permanent shipping container shelters are now common on mines and worksites around the country.


Standalone Shelters Also Available

Standalone shelters without shipping containers can also be arranged. In this case, the shipping containers are designed so that they can be sited on walls or posts. These are incredibly useful in large worksites, and of course, farms and properties.
