Flat Rack Containers

Flat Rack Containers

Flat rack containers are most often used as either 20ft or 40ft containers, they are ideal for large and heavy cargoes which cannot be loaded into containers with fixed sides or walls. Flat rack containers have a high load capacity frame and a softwood floor, the walls at either end of a flat rack can be fixed or collapsible.

Flat Rack Container Specifications The end walls on a flat rack container provide more than sufficient stability for them to be stacked on top of each other and lashing rings found in the side rails, floor and corner posts allow for the cargo to be safely secured, these lashing rings help to accommodate loads of up to 2000 kg, in the case of 20’ flat racks, and 4000 kg in the case of 40’ flat racks.

Many 20ft flat rack containers are provided with forklift pockets and 40ft flat racks have gooseneck tunnels at both ends.
