You can position the shipping containers door to door with the fabric cover shelters coming in varying widths, heights and sizes.

The most important part of a shelter is how faster they are installed and how comfortably. Here are five methods applied to set up a container shelter:

1. Measurement

Take the measurements of the space you want to place the containers.

They should be positioned to the actual measurements of theshelter stretch – measuring at the containers top.

After noting the measurements on paper, it’s advisable to use spray paint or string where you should position the structure.

Additionally, tilting the containers to the outside edge slightly help in draining away rainwater.

2. Welding of Base Plate and Top rail

Chapter 7: What are the Factors to Consider before Buying a Container Shelter?

Since there are several manufacturers, you need to consider the following factors before choosing a container shelter:

· Strength of Materials

The strength and longevity of a container shelter narrows down to the materials used.

Thin-gauge steel frames and inferior quality metals could result in excessive flexing or buckling that could totally jeopardize the structure.

Low strength materials can even lead to catastrophic collapse of structure.

· Certified Design and Engineering

Like any other building, a container shelter needs financial investment which is at risk when it cannot sustain long term use or adverse weather.

While majority of container mounted shelters advertise durability with their products, this aids to know that what you buy will endure with more guarantee.

· Toughness in Extreme Weather

One of the key features of high-end container shelter is their excellent toughness under the impacts of extreme climates and harsh weather.

They can withstand heavy storms and snow loads and high winds, even for prolonged durations in dangerous environments.

The fabric cover design should also ensure shedding of snow and maximum resistance to abrasion, in addition to withstanding extreme weather.

· Complying with Building Codes

Your container mounted shelter of choice should comply with the International Building Codes standards for safety.

Moreover, it can be modelled to meet extra area- or region-specific building code stipulations.

There are some locations that have mitigating situations that call for extra safety and security measures with buildings and systems.

A specially-designed container shelter may be the best choice, an inexpensive option to using other kinds of shelter.

The fabric applied on all shelters is too firm rip-stop material.

This fabric is UV stabilized and waterproof.

To make sure the sheet remains well stretched upon the frame of your movable shelter at all times will guarantee a lengthy life and not causing stress on your shelter frame in windy conditions.

Unfastened sheets must be re-stretched instantly.

Chapter 9: Do Container Shelter require Maintenance after Installation?

Ensure that the ratchet straps stay well stretched and in position.

Do not take away any ratchet straps without substituting them, or loosen any choke ropes or wires without making sure they are protected after.

Inspect regularly and substitute where it is required.

A proper stretched sheet implies that it will not rub or wear on the frame of the shelter.

An untied and flapping sheet will pull and exert pressure on your frame, as well as causing points of wear and friction on the sheet.

Inspect that your shelter is tremendously left strongly joined to the surface you have installed it on.

Make sure augers and stakes are regularly protected to avoid movement.

Ensure that your frame is left bolted strongly and fixed.

Bungees will need substitution regularly so that they are left stretchable and strongly fitted.  Substitute bungees are available for purchase.

                                                                      Figure 4 Gable container shelter

·  Polyethylene Fabric

With standard weight of 260gsm and 320gsm for heavier grade polyethylene fabric, it has greater higher strength to weight ratio.

This makes the fabric light weight easier to handle, ship and pull over the steel structure.

When the fabric has a patch, it can easily be mended using glue or bitumen tape and it may last for a period of 8-12 years.

· PVC Fabric

Most container shelters use polyvinyl chloride (PVC) fabric because it is a more robust, tear-resistant, UV resistant fabric in fabric structures.

PVC fabric has translucency up to 12% (which may eliminate the need for artificial lighting during the day).

PVC fabric is sturdy and long lasting and is available in a wide variety of weights and colors.

Chapter 11: Is the Fabric Roof of Container Shelter UV Stabilized?

The damage as a result of UV radiation can be dreadful, though the degree of damage differ with location.

ISO containers are made to a standard width by height of 2.438 m × 2.591 m. Lengthwise, the two popular lengths are 12.192m (commonly known as 40-ft container and 6.96m (commonly known as 20-ft container.
