Questions and Answers about Flat Pack Containers(1)

Q1. Application scenarios of flat pack containers


Container construction technology has begun to mature in the late 80’s and early 90’s.

At present, container buildings are mostly used in various popular buildings such as commercial streets, office roads, hotel and guesthouse exhibition halls, sales offices, and so on. As a new styling tool and structural tool, the container gradually shows its unique charm and development potential. Real estate, automobiles, beauty, and technology brands are using container elements and craftsmanship, and all walks of life have set off a trend of “containers”.




The scale of flat back container construction continues to increase, the difficulty of construction continues to increase, and the performance of the container body in architectural design is constantly being updated.


Q2. What are the sizes and load-bearing dimensions of common container houses?


The usable clear space of the standard container size is relatively tight, the indoor height is low, and the horizontal space is narrow and long. Therefore, the adaptive combination design of the box is usually done during the transformation, and more types of buildings can be created through the combination of the boxes, And create the unique artistic quality of the flat back container. From residential buildings to large-span sports buildings; from small single-box buildings to large-scale modular buildings composed of hundreds of containers, the scales are also very different according to the needs of the actual project. It can be said that the development standard of flat back accommodation container design lies in the expansion of the combination mode and space adaptation scope of the container building.


Q3. What is the life span of flat pack containers?


The service life of flat back container houses ranges from 2 years to 30 years, depending on the quality of maintenance. Rockwool sandwich panel, the main material of flat back container houses, plays a decisive role in the service life of container houses.

The service life of the flatpack container house is also related to normal maintenance. If the paint of the container house is found to be peeling off, it should be repaired as soon as possible to prevent rust from further corroding the material. In this way, the service life can be extended.


Q4. What requirements do container structures have on the ground foundation?


Cast-in-place concrete paving includes two types: un-reinforced concrete and rigid concrete, which are rigid paving structures. They have high strength, good water stability, and thermal stability; smooth surface, good wear resistance, oil corrosion resistance, and high-temperature resistance, and will not appear undulating deformation under strong load; long service life, and low maintenance cost.

Ring beam: The function of the ring beam is mainly to adjust the uneven settlement that may occur, strengthen the integrity of the foundation, and make the reaction force of the foundation more uniform. When the geological conditions are good, it is not necessary to install the geosphere beam, but it is better to install it in terms of connecting the structural columns to make the ring beam structural columns form a complete weak frame and also for indoor and outdoor waterproofing.
