40 Cubic Yard Open Smooth Sided Hooklift Container:

40 Cubic Yard Smooth-Sided Open RO-RO Containers are the most economical product in our Container product range and are built with curved sides. They have a double-skinned overlap with a 3mm top plate overlapping the 4mm curved lower plate by 300mm to provide extra strength. We offer a choice of container door options, from side-hung and top-hung doors with ratchet locking secured by secondary locking pins to double barn doors with twin lock operations. All are secured by a door holdback system to ensure operator safety.
