Container Shelters – Rapidly Deployed, Robust and Stow-able

Toro Container Mounted Shelters Support Mining Operations in Australia

Toro’s Container Mounted Shelters were born out of the Australian mining industry and further developed with European engineering. To that end, our Container Mounted Shelters are used for mining infrastructure across the globe.

Toro’s container mounted shelters pack efficiently into ISO shipping containers. This allows us to ship directly to your site with minimal freight cost using our trusted and proven logistics partner.

Furthermore, our incredibly strong composite membranes used to cover each building are UV stabilised to withstand intense sunlight . In addition to this, they remain impervious to wind, rain, snow and chemical attack, yet transmit enough natural light to work during daylight operation. 

Toro’s container mounted shelters can fulfil a number of roles in a mining camp. For example, maintenance shelters for large vehicles or aggregate stores containing thousands of tonnes of material. In contrast to this, Toro can also provide small and specialist shelters for drill rigs, specialist equipment shelters or welding habitats.

An Economical Alternative for the Shipping & Ship Building Industry

Container mounted shelters are rapidly deployed and cost-effective. Hence they are perfect for all port and marine environments.  Consequently, we are able to draw on a depth of experience in marine structures. As a result, our container structures are used as repair facilities, vessel storage, marine terminals, paint booths, and ship cocoons.

Furthermore, our container mounted shelters utilise high-quality galvanised steel tubing. Therefore they are resistant to harsh, corrosive marine elements. Equally, they are manufactured to stand up to the local wind conditions. Additionally, our container shelters do not have internal columns. Therefore the is no interferance with ship building operations, machinery or labourers inside the structure. Due to this our clients in the ship building industry enjoy the maximum usable space and ease of movement.

To that end, we understand the environment in which our structures operate and the pressure our clients face to deliver safely and on time.

Furthermore, our standard white fabric covers reduce the need for artificial lighting during daylight hours. In addition, the translucent and reflective qualities of the cover provide indoor temperature stability.  Therefore our buildings stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
