Finnish designed container supports
The CF set is ConFoot's original set of four high strength steel legs which act as container supports. Designed in Finland, during a research and development period spanning over a decade, the CF set has made container handling a possibility to companies on a significantly smaller budget.
ConFoot legs are a relatively new innovation in the Intermodal industry, but they have already been making an impact for companies across Europe, Australia and more.
High strength steel
The custom blend of over 6 Finnish steels allows legs to support up to an incredible 30 tonnes. This maximum weight has been tested with extensive stress tests, utilizing a safety margin of 2.0 (as opposed to the industry standard of 1.6). The legs conform to the European 2006/42/EC Machinery Directive safety regulations.
Each of the four CF container supports weighs a mere 24 kg. This means that they can easily be installed a operated by a single user alone (often the truck driver). The installation process also only takes a few minutes. They are also able to be folded into a compact transport position, for more convenient carrying and storage.
Low purchase cost
The CF set holds a mere fraction of the cost of other container handling equipment. Side-loaders, static cranes and container forklifts require a significant budget to rent, let alone buy. The low price of the CF set removes the monopoly on container handling from only the largest of companies and reduces the high cost of rental fees for smaller businesses. Contact us here for a quote.
How they work
The installation process shown above is very simple and only requires a few minutes to carry out. The only stipulations are that the chassis used to unload the container onto the legs is equipped with air suspension (the connection point with the corner casting of each leg can be adjusted between 1043-1448 mm). The load should not exceed 30t and the set should be used on level, stable ground.
Types of containers they can be used for
Any container weighing under 30 tonnes with standard ISO corner casting can be mounted on ConFoot legs. Be it a reefer or a tank container, no problem.
