Shipping container

<< < (2/4) > >>

armymars:
  Now that I had my coffee I was thinking. If I load a container with two tons of goods and I load it on top of another container, is not the floor of the container supporting the weight of the load and isn't there a gap between the containers so they can run the straps to load and unload the said container. It seems to me the load of the container is supported by the floor. The corners support stacking and isn't the roof made of the same steel, the same way.
  Please pick me apart if I'm wrong. I've watched on tiny homes where they put a deck on top of a home made from a shipping container.

Redman:
I hope this helps.

  Good info Redman.

Stwood:
The container floor has I-beams under, where the roof has none.
