Providing a portable option for Container-Mounted Shelters, twistlock beams enable you to quickly and securely attach shelters to a shipping container with the option to relocate the shelter at any time. Making the installation and dismantling process much faster, the twistlock beam system is ideal if you need frequent relocation, are unable to weld on site, or are renting containers and can’t weld to them.
Twistlock beams are installed along the full-length of a container shelter and replace the usual mounting brackets. The twistlock beam comes in sections which are bolted together on site and attached to the container corner castings using container twistlocks. The mounting brackets come pre-welded onto the twistlock beam member at the correct spacings.
Note: The twistlock beams span 6m/20ft at a time. If you are using 12m/40ft containers you will need to add extra corner casts at the 6m point, or weld a centre bracket.
Optional additions on the Container-Mounted Shelters and Post-Mounted Shelters, gutters and downpipes help control water flow, catchment and storage on site. Water can be directed to storage tanks for reuse on site or to drain systems to limit erosion, equipment damage or contamination of surrounding areas.
Popular for shelters covering corrosive or toxic goods, Allshelter’s corrosion protection gives the steel framework more durability and a longer life. As a first step we offer hot dip galvanising to coat the steel with a protective zinc coating. In addition, for the ultimate in anti-corrosion, we can also powder coat the steel for enhanced resistance to abrasions, acids and solvents. Powder coating is available in a range of colours.
While our standard heavy-duty polyethylene fabric covers are flame resistant, and the flame will not normally spread once the source of ignition is removed, they are not classed as fire retardant (FR), as the material has not been tested by a textile laboratory.
If you have a particular fire risk in your location or usage, Allshelter fire retardant covers are available. They are made with the latest technology in coating and extrusion manufacturing, treated with a chemical additive in the fabric and tested in an Australian laboratory to AS/NZ specifications. There are a few specialised manufacturing qualities that make up the superior fire retardant cover:
