AREN’T SHIPPING CONTAINERS JUST HOT OVENS WHEN THEY ARE USED FOR HOMES OR OFFICES?Shipping Containers2023-06-15T19:05:35+10:00
Absolutely not! If you don’t insulate they will, but the reality is that the new Ceramic spray insulation is most effective when applied to metal. In fact, if you build a home, office, emergency shelter or storage unit using Ceramic Insulation paint (spray), the structure will probably be more energy efficient than a conventional home.
Certain items cannot be accepted for storage or transportation under general conditions of carriage or insurance. For example: food, cash, bonds, jewellery, alcohol, fireworks or other explosives, flammable gases, liquids or solids, poisons and toxins, corrosives, radioactive materials, ammunition or firearms, scuba tanks, gas cylinders, aerosol cans, butane lighters and other pressurised vessels and pornography of any description. It is also inadvisable to include perishables or liquids, which could leak in transit causing untold damage.
