Future Container Roofing
Container Shelters for the Mining Sector
Future Container Roofing (FCR) develops reliable, easy-to-install container transport shelters for mining, disaster relief and humanitarian applications.
All roofing trusses are modular in design and can fit a standard 20ft or 40ft container.
Our structures can withstand a wide range of adverse weather conditions such as high winds and heavy rainfall, as well as a category four cyclone.
The modular FCR system is a fast and reliable container shelter solution for clients, plant and equipment, as well as personnel.
Patented, customisable container structures for the mining industry
FCR’s protective solutions are certified to comply with AS/NZS 1170.2: 2011 and patented globally.
Offering a solid engineered structure, a large height clearance and a 12t load bearing on each roof truss, they can be customised to meet specific requirements.
We provide a range of options such as galvanisation to prevent rusting, and additional containers can be used to form a fully enclosed warehouse or shelter.
In addition, rapid installation enables one-day assembly and disassembly once the containers are situated on a suitably prepared site. Another major advantage of the system is the containers are still fully accessible and can be used for offices or storage as no ballast is required.
Heat-resistant roofing systems for containers
Suitable for hot climates, FCR container roofing systems can reduce radiant heat and improve sun protection for on-site teams and equipment.
They offer a high-quality working environment that ensures your staff are keep cooler under a covered area while their resistance to dirt protects machinery and equipment.
Wind and water-resistant roofing structures
FCR’s building systems are resistant to wet or windy conditions, and can withstand a category 4 cyclone.
They keep personnel and equipment dry and when compared to fabric shelters, they will not tear or deflate which minimises repair costs or disruption to your business. When you are ready to move to a different location on site, or even a different site, simply dis-assemble the roofing structure and take it with you.
The FCR system was invented by Rodney Bonlin, whose 38 years of experience in the engineering and container industries has enabled him to identify a commercial demand for large, industrial-grade strength, transportable and quickly deployable shelters for use in multiple applications.
Rodney established Boncon Services Pty Ltd in 1999 and has been performing emergency repairs and maintenance to heavy lifting equipment and ships to help keep the ports of Melbourne operational. The company has extensive expertise and infrastructure to work with all aspects of shipping containers’ use, be it transport, handling or container modification.
Boncon Services (now Boncon Group) has developed a world-class reputation for problem solving, particularly in this domain, as few can match Rodney’s knowledge and experience of welding and steel fabrication.
