Structure: The walls of open-top containers are generally made of corrugated steel. The floor is made of wood. It has the following typical distinguishing structural features. The roof consists of removable bows and a removable tarpaulin. The door header may be swivelled out. Lashing rings, to which the cargo may be secured, are installed in the upper and lower side rails and the corner posts. The lashing rings may take loads of up to 1,000 kg.
1. The container should sit on a level surface, otherwise the door will not open and close properly. If the soil that would be placed is not level, then we recommend to place a concrete block under each corner of the container. The blocks should be placed under the iso – container posts in the 4 corners.
The corner posts of the container are each 17 to 18 centimeters (7 inches).
2. We recommend you to grease the door, the hinges and the lock rods on the door at regular intervals in order to preserve a normal function of the doors.
3. Make sure that all products are dry before loading. If damp goods are placed inside the container, then this will cause condensation.
