One of the most practical roofing solutions we can offer is the Future Buildings’ Container Cover. It is a popular product for what could have remained unused space ultimately transforming it into a handy storage or work area. Our container covers eliminate the need for bulky beams, trusses and interior supports creating an open space simplicity.
Using our mounting plates to secure the arch panels to standard shipping containers (which can also be called cargo containers, sea cans, conex boxes) provides instant coverage and protection for any kind of vehicle or activity underneath. The containers act as the walls with our covers and can be used as accommodations, garages, workshops, construction site storage and countless commercial applications.
Many customers choose to close their space in with end walls which are optional. Other possible accessories include skylights and insulation. There is no end to how personal, comfortable and functional one can make their Container Cover structure.
Choose your ideal width – 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55 up to 60 – and can be designed to be any length.
Our Container Covers and other roofing systems are engineered for applicable snow loads and coated with a Galvalume Plus™ coating offering great protection from rust perforation.

The Belfour Farm
The Belfour family from Northern Ontario purchased a hobby farm. Mr. Belfour was looking for barn storage space to keep animal feed and hay. The “A” style steel building was best suited for the Belfour family as it provided large amounts of room for storage, feed, hay and equipment.
