Expandable container houses can be seen on some construction sites, which is more practical and convenient. How to reform the container and what knowledge do you need to know? Xiao Bian will talk about this with you next.

How to reform containers

1. Protective measures:

Influenced by the physical characteristics of its own metal structure, container materials have strong thermal conductivity and poor thermal insulation performance, which make the indoor thermal environment unstable. An additional thermal insulation layer is required to effectively control the thermal environment in the control room. In the southern region, the container body needs to be sunshaded for thermal insulation, thus saving an energy consumption expense. In addition, the box body is easy to rust, and antirust paint needs to be painted inside and outside the container to prevent rust.

It should be noted that in order to prevent the spread of diseases and insect pests during international shipping, chromate, phosphorus-containing or lead-containing paint is often used in container paints produced in some countries. Therefore, the origin of the containers must be identified before making them into shops. For some containers, the original residual paint must be polished off before they can be safely used.

2. Standardized units:

Container architecture is characterized by standardization of size. The Container architecture unit comes from off-the-shelf containers and is limited by the size of the existing containers. Most containers have uniform size limits on their external dimensions. Of the three commonly used sizes, the usable net space is relatively cramped, the indoor height is relatively low, and the transverse space is narrow and long. Full consideration of ergonomics will greatly affect the customer's experience and building quality. You can stack up several container boxes, but you should fully consider the structure and safety, not to mention the vertical space, which requires a stronger structure to stabilize.

3. Service life:

The service life of containers in the transportation industry is generally 10-15 years. The eliminated undamaged container body still has good physical properties and can be used for 15 years. If it is well maintained or matched with other structures such as concrete, it can last longer ~

4. Appearance:

The best principle is that it can become a delicate exhibit in the city, and at the same time, it can let customers see that the building originates from containers, which can more embody the flavor of novelty and art.

To lead new elements into urban space. The treatment of appearance generally starts with color and shape. Color and pattern are very suitable for literary and artistic styles. Customers locate young groups. Shape is to place several boxes in different sizes, angles and heights to create some space for overhead, balcony and corridor. This is a very basic construction method in architectural design. Even the layman can try it. Be careful not to create acute triangular spaces and spaces that cannot be used by the human body. Let's look at several common vertical spatial relationships.
