Convenient, easy and quick storage for temporary or long-term use
The 8-metre Shield Canopy™ is a cost-effective outdoor cover, designed to fulfil a wide range of storage and shelter requirements.
Quick and easy to install, the 8-metre wide canopy creates a convenient covered space of up to 97m2 for temporary or long term usage – perfect for sheltering equipment, machinery, workers or materials, making it an ideal alternative to the permanent steel shed.
The durable MagnaTube steel framework is clad in a waterproof and fire-rated PVC cover, providing a robust shelter from adverse weather. To ensure the space is kept as dry as possible, a full seal is created against the containers to prevent water ingress from the sides.
Unlike other conventional container canopies, the Shield Canopy™ features an integrated translucent roof strip that allows diffused natural light into the covered area, creating a much more useful workspace.
Available in two lengths to fit 20-foot or 40-foot containers (standard or ‘high cube’), the 8-metre wide container canopy is a versatile solution for creating a covered space between two containers. Options are also available at 10 metres wide or 12 metres wide for when larger covered areas are needed.

Providing superior structural integrity along with a lasting and high-quality finish. The 8-metre Shield Canopy™ is constructed from 76.2 (section) Magnatube, with diagonal bracing at the front and rear hoop sections formed of 50mm Z35 structural steel. ‘Drop-in’ purlins are formed of 31mm Z35 structural steel.
A clamping bar running the length of the containers fixes the canopy’s structure to the container section. Formed of 60 x 60mm galvanised steel box section, the clamping bar uses a bespoke configuration of clamps and fixing plates to grip the container’s outer wall and bolt to the lifting knuckles at each corner. Tensioned straps, spanning the width of the container secure the clamping bar in place and prevent any rotation.
The Canopy is constructed from a 600gsm PVC coated fabric. Tensioned with a ratcheted pocket system to form a tailored roof structure that will withstand the harshest weather conditions with a resilient and durable finish designed to last 25 years or more.
Rainfall is controlled with a rubber sealing strip that runs along the length of the fixing bar, limiting ingress from the top of the container. The canopies roof sheet creates a generous overlap where it intersects the container edge providing shelter from rain traveling on side winds.
The 10-metre container canopy is engineered to perform in the demanding external climate. Wind loading is calculated to 500N/m2 (equivalent to 102km/h) following the European standard BS EN 1993. Snow loading is calculated to 600N/m2 and drifted snow load is calculated to 1200N/m2, following the European standard BS EN 1991
Protecting exposed sites and sensitive working environments; the Shield Canopy™ can be specified with additional panels and steel framework for cladding & enclosing the open gable ends. Gable cladding can either span the top section only (terminating at the top edge of the container) or span the full opening.
The 8-metre Container Canopy has been designed and manufactured for ‘self-build’ installation and comes with detailed instructions for assembly. If required installation can be provided as part of a comprehensive supply package within mainland Britain.
The Shield Canopy™ is packed and dispatched as a palletised kit and can be delivered worldwide.
