The History and Evolution of Container Shelters and Domes

3

From being simple freight holders and preservers, cargo containers have been found to have other valuable purposes. They can be modified to form temporary shelters and domes for industrial and mining sites. They are commonly used as storage rooms, laboratories and lodging areas for workers. Companies prefer them to concrete structures due to their compact design and high mobility.

Backtrack to the Origin

The shipping container, built to last and conceived merely for no-fuss, heavy-duty, utility transportation, has been around for a long time. As early as 1830, “simple, rectangular wooden boxes”, very similar to the containers that we know today, were used for carrying coal along the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. The pure practicality of transferring just one (albeit large) item from one means of transportation to another (in this case from train to horse-drawn carts), rather than unloading and reloading, has streamlined shipping practices ever since.

Avoid Mold Issues by Using a Container Dome or Shed Made of Metal and Cavacon for Your Storage

2

Mold can be a persistent problem that’s hard to get rid of. It can grow almost anywhere dark and damp, and if you remove mold one time, there’s no guarantee that it won’t come back. If your barn, garage, or shed is made of wood, then you probably have mold growing somewhere, and if you’re not careful, you could soon have a full-blown mold issue in your hands.

Unfortunately, your problem with mold doesn’t end with its growth. Left unattended, it can start to affect your health, and the health of everyone else using your facility. Not only will you lose your wooden structure to rot, but your productivity could go down as well when your illness prevents you from working.

There is a way to ensure your storage space, particularly your shed, is completely mold-free—have the framework made of metal instead of wood. Metal is invulnerable to mold because it doesn’t have any organic matter that mold can feed on, making it your best option for a storage facility. With prefab metal storage structure such as metal Shade Sheds and ContainerSheds, you won’t have to worry about mold growing anywhere in the space where you store your equipment, furniture, and even livestock.

Container domes are unique structures you can use for many purposes, such as storing large manufacturing equipment or farming supplies. Not all container domes are the same, though. For you to choose correctly, you need to make the right decisions.

Dome Extras

Sometimes, you need a little more out of your container dome, which is perfectly fine because these structures come with plenty of add-on features and extras. For example, you may have sensitive equipment that needs to be protected from the elements outside. Domes with fully enclosed walls are perfect for this purpose and increase overall comfort inside.

If you have a lot of smaller tools and equipment on hand, you can have storage shelves installed in these domes. Shelves can feature different dimensions, depending on the equipment you need to store. Not only do these shelves help you stay organized, but they keep equipment off the floors for added safety.
