Modern construction sites are often small, and therefore it is necessary to maximise every bit of space that you have for your site accommodation units by container stacking. Willbox understand this, and that is why we build our units so that they can be double stacked to optimise ground space, and fully utilise the useable area on site.
What units can be stacked?
Willbox have based the majority of our site cabins on the 20’ x 8’ ISO Shipping container. Using shipping container conversions for our site accommodation units means that they are perfect for container stacking as they have an ISO container frame, and ISO corner casts to easily and securely lock the containers together.
Is it safe to stack?
Stacked units are approved on all major construction sites, and many of the main contractors will stack their own units too. We consider our containers and cabins to be the most secure as we use container conversions to ensure the units sit flush on one another, and are therefore completely safe.
How do the staircases work?
Willbox use a 13 tread steel staircase which has a landing platform and steel legs that meet the floor. The landing platform has railings all the way around the sides, and down the steps, and it is connected to the base of the stacked cabin.

How long does it take to stack?
Depending on the space to manoeuvre on site, it should take under 1 hour to fully stack the units and assemble the staircase. Our drivers are fully trained to operate the Hiab crane vehicle (required for loading and off-loading the cabins) and they have many years’ experience stacking cabins on site. Our drivers will not leave the site until the stack is safely secured, and the customer is happy with the set-up.
