Norex Container Platform Legs

NOREX COLDSTORE


ConFoot legs only weigh 24kg each, allowing them to be easily carried and installed by one person alone

The set of four legs are certified to hold up to 30 tonnes. That maximum weight includes the weight of the shipping container and its contents.The container is raised by the air suspension chassis on a truck. At this point the legs are fitted to the shipping container's corner casting. When the chassis is then lowered, the legs will come into contact with the ground, shifting the weight of the container onto the legs. The truck can then drive away with its chassis and the container will be left free standing. The same process in reverse is used to load a shipping container back onto the chassis. See the process in our video.

For  legs to function, they must be used in tandem with a truck chassis with functioning air suspension. The chassis must also be able to lower to the point where the corner casting of the loaded shipping container is between 1043 - 1448 mm above the ground. The vast majority of air suspension chassis can do this, but there are a few exceptions.
