As a rule, any of them can be installed both on the ground and on a specially prepared (asphalted or concreted) territory. Most often, the design is fixed by welding its frame to the anchored in the ground (asphalt).
Basically container platforms are arrangedas follows: frame from a profile pipe section of 40x20 or 50x25 mm, on which the sheets of corrugated galvanized steel are added, supplemented in separate designs with a metal mesh that has 50x50 cells. Another frequently used material is polycarbonate.
Container platforms equipped with doors,manufacturers are equipped with various decor elements and rubber aprons on the bottom of the latter. The presence of the doors distinguishes the platforms of this type. They look more aesthetically pleasing, they fit well into the courtyard interior. Their contents are not scattered by the wind, animals, birds and rodents. Such structures are safe in the fire relation.

Recently, the spread ofreceive containers buried - they have an increased capacity, compared to conventional ones, and require much less space for their installation.
