Container Dome Shelters

Seeking a shelter and shade solution for your mine site or industrial worksite? 

Container Dome Shelter or Steel Shed, what’s it to be?

Both have features and benefits that could suit your situation, so which one is best suited to your requirements?

4 Essential Questions

It is important to think about the following questions. The answers of which will help to decide which option is best for you:

  1. Is the structure required for short to medium term?
  2. Is there a chance it will need relocating during its lifetime?
  3. Is the land on which it will be located owned by another entity?
  4. Do you require it to be installed quickly?

If you answered NO to all these questions, then it’s likely that a steel shed would suit your needs. It is generally long term, permanent, typically installed on owners land and usually takes much longer from order to installation than a Container Dome Shelter. However, if you answered YES to even one question, a Container Dome Shelter is likely the best option.
