What is steel structure container house
PTH steel structure container house is a type of modular housing that is constructed from shipping containers made of steel. These containers are typically 20 feet or 40 feet in length and are designed to be transported on ships, trucks, and trains.
The steel containers are modified to create livable spaces that can be used as homes, offices, or even retail spaces. The walls, floor, and roof of the container are reinforced with steel to provide a strong and durable structure that can withstand harsh weather conditions.
The steel structure container house has become a popular housing solution due to its affordability, durability, and flexibility. They are also considered eco-friendly because they repurpose shipping containers that would otherwise be discarded.
The design of steel structure container houses can vary widely, from simple one-room dwellings to multi-story homes with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. They can also be customized to suit individual needs, with various finishes and features like windows, doors, insulation, and heating and cooling systems.
The most common types of building frames are timber frames, steel frames, and reinforced concrete frames. Timber frames are typically used for smaller structures, while steel and reinforced concrete frames are used for larger buildings and structures.
Frames can be designed in various shapes and configurations depending on the requirements of the building or structure. For example, a simple rectangular frame may be used for a single-story building, while a more complex frame with diagonal members may be used for a high-rise building to provide greater stability and resistance to wind and seismic forces.
Compare timber frames, steel frames, and reinforced concrete frames
Advantages: Timber frames are a sustainable option, as they are made from renewable materials. They are also energy-efficient, as wood is a natural insulator. Timber frames are easy to work with and can be customized to fit a variety of building designs. They are also lightweight, which can reduce foundation and transportation costs.
Disadvantages: Timber frames can be vulnerable to moisture and pests, which can lead to decay and rot. They may also require more maintenance than other types of frames, such as regular staining or painting. Timber frames may also be more prone to fire, though fire-resistant treatments are available.
Advantages: Steel frames are strong and durable, and can withstand high winds, earthquakes, and other types of stresses. They are also fire-resistant and low-maintenance, as they do not require staining or painting. Steel frames are also lightweight and can be easily transported and assembled on-site.
Disadvantages: Steel frames are not as energy-efficient as timber frames, as metal is a conductor of heat and cold. They may also be more expensive than timber frames, depending on the type of steel used.
Reinforced Concrete Frames:
Advantages: Reinforced concrete frames are strong, durable, and fire-resistant. They can also withstand high winds, earthquakes, and other types of stresses. They are also energy-efficient, as concrete has a high thermal mass that can regulate indoor temperature. Reinforced concrete frames are also low-maintenance and can be customized to fit a variety of building designs.
Disadvantages: Reinforced concrete frames can be heavy, which can increase foundation and transportation costs. They may also be more expensive than timber frames, depending on the type of reinforcement used. Reinforced concrete frames may also require more skilled labor and longer construction times than other types of frames.
Steel frames can also be combined with other materials, such as concrete or timber, to create hybrid structures that take advantage of the strengths of each material.
Steel frames provide a strong, durable, and versatile building frame option that is widely used in the construction industry.
For some flat packed container house, we use Q355 steel.
Q355 steel has a minimum yield strength of 355 megapascals (MPa), which means that it can withstand a high amount of stress before it starts to deform or fail. It also has good weldability and machinability, making it easy to work with and modify during the construction process.
Compared to traditional carbon steels, Q355 steel has a lower carbon content, which means that it is less susceptible to corrosion and can be more easily recycled. It is also more environmentally friendly than other types of steel, as it requires less energy to produce and generates less waste.
Why Both side steel sandwich panel
Both side steel sandwich panels are commonly used in the construction industry for walls, roofs, and floors. They offer several advantages over traditional building materials such as concrete or brick, including:
Strength: Steel is a strong and durable material that can withstand harsh weather conditions, seismic forces, and other types of stresses.
Thermal insulation: The core material of both side steel sandwich panels can provide excellent thermal insulation, which can help to reduce heating and cooling costs.
Fire resistance: Steel is naturally fire-resistant, and some types of both side steel sandwich panels are designed to be even more fire-resistant, providing an additional level of safety in case of a fire.
Acoustic insulation: The core material of both side steel sandwich panels can also provide excellent sound insulation, which can help to reduce noise levels inside the building.
