40’ Open Top Conex Box Easy for Forklift Access

A 40’ Open Top Conex Box makes it easy for forklift access. It is 12 metres in length, and have double doors at one end of the container, giving you a 2.4 metre access for storing your product. If you have an item that is of an odd shape or awkward size, or the item is just particularly high then the Open top conex box is the best solution for your storage requirements.

The Difference with a 40′ Open Top Conex Box

An open top conex box is different from a General Purpose conex box because it has a tarpaulin roof that is available in a soft top or hard top. The roof runs bows across the width of the unit. These containers also have a door header that is moveable. The door header is the structural beam going over the container double doors on the end wall. The advantage of purchasing an Open top conex box is that your forklift and crane will have full access via the roof, and the double container doors. You are able to modify your Open top container further if more access is required.

Open Top Conex Box Useful for Forklift Access

These open top conex box units are generally used for heavy cargo and machinery. If your cargo will be of a certain weight, and need your forklift to be able to access your container easily, a container ramp would be an ideal modification for your Open top. The container ramps can be weight rated, they are positioned external of your double container doors – having a container ramp would ensure that your forklift is loading the container in a simple and timely manner, without causing any damage to your cargo or machinery.
