This curtainsided unit able to load 33 euro pallets (26 UK pallets) and can be loaded from three sides, now opens up an unconventional segment of road haulage and close-meshed distribution to containers. Offering full side access, this container provides flexibility when used for carrying part loads, each and every pallet is immediately accessible. The unit is also a perfect solution for companies that are only able to load and unload from the side.

Like the standard dry freight container, the curtainsided containers are built using the same high-strength steels and lightweight flooring materials so as to minimize tare weight. Our 45ft curtain containers are equipped with theft-proof curtains with heavy duty webbing. Curtainsided containers are stackable up to 5 high when empty and up to 3 high when fully loaded and can be top-lifted like the standard 45ft container.

The 45ft container is the intermodal transport system of the future. All the containers are compatible with 40ft infrastructure and the design conforms to EU Legislation EN 253. Transporting more with fewer movements and all handled with the same infrastructure as used for 40ft containers.

UNIT45 design is constantly revised to take account of new technology, materials and environment as they become available and proven in service. Our 45ft containers are made with an environmentally friendly bamboo floor especially designed by UNIT45. This floor even though it is lighter it does not compromise on strength.  All our 45ft containers are painted with waterborne paint.
