Plastic shipping containers are benefiting shipment and delivery practices around the globe. With many styles to choose from, there is an appropriate containment unit for cargo of all sizes. Not only are plastic shipping containers lightweight and durable, they are easy to clean, maintain, sterilize, and store. And, because most are made from recycled plastic, they are also 100 percent recyclable, making them an environmentally sustainable choice.
The most basic transformation of containers into portable offices include taking a single unit and installing a ”person door”, some windows and finish the interior by framing and insulating the walls and ceiling, adding lights and electric duplexes (plugs) as required. The ceiling is covered with a ceiling tile or pre textured gypsum, the walls are covered with vinyl covered gypsum and the floor is covered in commercial grade tile. Some electric base board heat and air conditioning units are installed and the container doors are sealed and welded closed. There you have it, a very strong and very portable office.

But there is a solution to this problem. Proponents of the idea, including professors, students, nonprofit organizations and some members of the building industry suggest that the containers should be designed so that conversion is possible at some point in the future. They could have removable panels that would not endanger the integrity of the container when it’s being used for shipping and could be easily removed when the container is needed in an emergency for shelter. When needed, these containers could then be transported and set up much faster and would be a much more comfortable solution for the victims.
Top brands supply these shipping cases through their online dealers and they are specifically designed to protect your trade show exhibits. You even get unique items like shipping cases that can be converted into a display podium. This can be simply set up and is ideal for displaying banner stands if you need more workspace in your counter. The expandable containers are also very attractive as they are easy to handle and you can quickly convert them into a spacious counter, just by opening the box.
Container homes may just be the option that many people could benefit from in these tough economic times; however, with the problems in some areas to allow permits for alternative types of housing it might be a while before they’re available as widely as they could be.
