We bolt this into threaded sections of the floor which makes the floor very rigid and enables the floor to be replaced easily.
Boxes With the structural floor in place are so strong they can be put on grass or gravel. Our units are the only boxes rigid enough to enable you to do this. please note even though the weight is spread very loose gravel will settle and unit may need to be re levelled if this happens.

We can mount a wooden board and drill a hole in the unit which is then grommeted to prevent wire from chaffing on the steel plate your cable can then be run through.

We would need notice so we can bring tools as mounting board is much better done in location
