  • Please read through the instruction manual carefully prior to the assembly and disassembly of the container shelters.
  • Ensure that the shelter fabric is clear of snow at all times.
  • Please disassemble shelters in case of hurricanes and heavy snowfall.
  • Ensure to keep the tarpaulin away from heat sources.
  • Ensure to retighten the canopy once or twice a year.

All of our products can be considered temporary structures due to the fact they can be disassembled completely and relocated. We do recommend obtaining the consent of your local council to avoid planning scrutiny
