How To Install Trolley Shelter

How To Install Trolley Shelter

How to install your shopping trolley shelter from Store Fittings Direct.

Our Dalby Shopping trolley shelter itself is an elegant shape, made from aluminium with lots of gentle curves and glazed with 6mm clear polycarbonate. In order to fit the space available it was designed for entry from one side. The back consists of 3mm aluminium sheets powder coated in two shades of grey, curved from top to bottom, preventing any view into the shelter from the adjacent car park, whilst a gap at the top enables air circulation. The roof is clear 6mm solid polycarbonate that was cold-curved during fitting, as is the vertical panel on the side opposite to the entrance. The glazing was fitted using our P226 screw-down glazing bar and in line with current legislation, 50% of the shelter sides are open to the elements.


  1. All concrete pads should be laid and given sufficient time to harden before shelters are installed.
  2. Tarmac should be laid new, or made good to a maximum depth of 50mm over the concrete pads before shelters are installed.
  3. Tarmac should be clearly marked to identify the position of the external perimeter of each concrete pad.
  4. Approximately 3-4 shelters can be erected per day, therefore sufficient pads should be laid prior to shelter installation to allow for consecutive working days for the total quantity of shelters to be fitted.


  1. STORAGE PRIOR TO ASSEMBLY A suitable secure storage area (compound) will be required prior to delivery to the site. This needs to be large enough to accommodate the total number of shelters required.
  2. REVIEW GROUNDWORKS Check that groundworks have been carried out and made good as per the previous groundwork section.


Main assembly of the shelters must be undertaken within an area of 6 car parking spaces around the parking bay that is to be the final fixed position of the shelter as described in the “Working Area” paragraph below to avoid unnecessary manual handling issues.


A clear working area must be provided incorporating a total of 6 car parking spaces, 1 space on either side of the parking space the shelter is to finally fix to and three spaces directly behind. This area should be made safe for working by erecting Herras fencing around the perimeter as per AWOW V5.
