Windbreaker keeps containers locked together.
The Windbreaker is a patented bracket for connecting two adjacent containers in a stack and reduces the risk of a stack being blown over in high winds.
We have been advocating Windbreakers since 2014. It took a couple of weeks to convince the Empty Handler drivers that it would make our daily work more safe and less time consuming to get prepared for upcoming storm situations. However, we all work with the same procedures and instructions now. This team effort helps to create happy customers and shareholders!

Our depot has been using Windbreakers for over 2 years. We store the containers on 180.000 m2. There are many angles from which the wind can cause problems. Using Windbreakers in these windy corners have prevented a lot of damage in the past years. But remember, Windbreakers are only tools for damage control in storm situations. Stacking is, and always will be, a people’s job. The rest is an “act of God”.
