Container Dome: Answer to Extra Storage, Work, or Livestock Shelter

Every Australian company doing industrial-related business, especially in the rural areas, manages sites that usually require extra storage and shelter for grain, livestock, equipment, and manpower. When business growth occurs, or a new contract comes up, and the demand for an extra workshop is called for, fortunately, there’s one real solution, without the need for relocating: a container dome.

These protective domes or container sheds can be built to any size or length that suits a variety of industrial and rural applications. Some companies specialising in on-site shelter solutions, such as Container Domes Australia, can manufacture and install dome shelters, container sheds, or remote workstations, among others. To protect tall drilling equipment, for instance, the containers could be stacked up in multiples to the required height.

These shelters are usually container mounted, ground mounted, or post mounted—in any case, they are used to support the structure and secure it.  These modular domes can also be moved to other sites without any major hassle, which add efficiency to operations that need to relocate their container or dome shelters.

In a farm setting, for instance, there is always need of durable storage space for equipment, tools, and heavy machinery to protect them from the weather. Container sheds or domes are versatile and cost effective. They can also provide shelter for your livestock to keep them from extreme temperature of heat or frost. They can be used as well for safe storage of stocks and even provide a space for your workforce or facilities you may need to set up.

These portable domes can cope with the toughest weather to which the region exposes them to. The most reliable container shelters have been engineer-certified, even cyclone-rated, for several wind regions so that they are quite dependable for use outdoors for any extended time.

On occasions when all that is needed is an area of shade to protect from the extreme heat and sun of the Australian summer, a shade dome can be constructed on posts or containers, which can easily and quickly be erected.

The domes can be customised in a vast number of ways such as walls, shelvings, and can have features such as solar power and cctv which can even be accessed remotely on your computer.Fortunately, many of these container domes and sheds built by companies, such as Container Domes Australia, are built to last.
