Here’s Why ISBUs (Shippings Containers) are “Tonka Tough”;

14 Oct

People ask me all the time why I’d even WANT to build structures (especially HOMES) out of ISBUs (Shipping Containers).

I have to remind them that these durable Corten Steel boxes are designed to take poundings unlike any other assembled structures commonly used globally today.

An ISBUs life is filled with a lifetime of battles…

Mother Nature? No problem. ISBUs are weatherized containers designed to shelter cargo in the worst weather you can possibly imagine. Imagine spending a life at sea, getting pounded by “weather and worst” over and over and over again…

And it gets worse…

Sometimes, Man plays a hand in testing them, too…

Heavy seas and misty weather surround the cargo ship Rena that is stuck on the Astrolabe Reef, about 14 miles (22 kilometers) from Tauranga, New Zealand, Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2011.

The Liberia-flagged Rena has been foundering since it ran aground last Wednesday and the government has demanded to know why the ship crashed into the well-charted reef in calm weather.

Note the floating containers, filled with THOUSANDS of pounds of cargo. ISBUs keep the bad stuff (weather) out and the good stuff (air) in.

Now, imagine using these boxes to shelter something precious… like your family!

Stay tuned.
