40’ Open Top Container

 

The walls of open-top containers are generally made of corrugated steel. The floor is made of wood.  The roof consists of removable bows and a removable tarpaulin. The door header may be swiveled out.   These two structural features greatly simplify the process of packing and unpacking the container. In particular, it is very easy to pack and unpack the container from above or through the doors by crane or crab when the roof is open and the door header is swiveled out. It should be noted, however, that the purpose of the roof bows of an open-top container is not solely to support the tarpaulin but also to contribute to container stability. Flatracks are therefore more suitable for over height cargoes.

 

Lashing rings, to which the cargo may be secured, are installed in the upper and lower side rails and the corner posts. The lashing rings may take loads of up to 1,000 kg.
