Price & Speed commented that TEC Container overheight frames have proven to be a complete solution for their needs as they are reliable, easy to use and maintain. The ability to stow them anywhere in the yard when not in use without a dedicated parking stand facilitates our constantly changing and dynamic depot.

The BA-030H is a universal over height frame that can be picked up by any ISO spreaders with no need of any extra modification of it. Twistlocks are locked/unlocked, thanks to a semiautomatic mechanism that is operated by the up and down movements of the semi-automatic overheight frame tec container
