Our Awesome Core Features
There are countless reasons for preferring the shipping containers as a best option for housing and workplace solutions
STRONG AND DURABLE
Our products are made of robust steel, shipping containers can support up to 30,000kg each and can be stacked up to 7 units high. It stay intact during extreme natural disasters (when correctly anchored) and are not susceptible to rot or termite infestations.
The top and sides are made of welded 14-gauge (0.075″) corrugated steel. A 7-gauge (0.18″) tubular steel frame gives stability. The corner fittings are made of solid steel blocks welded directly to the frame. We offer 1.5″-thick marine-grade plywood flooring which adds rigidity, and use all-weather paint as standard for the interior and exterior. During modification, the vertical steel support beams are left in place for load-bearing purposes, and any windows are reinforced with welded steel tubes to maintain structural integrity.
Safety is Stabil’s utmost priority. The very construction and steel composition of shipping containers minimises the risks posed by fires. They are proven to be capable of surviving fires and withstanding extreme heat, making them ideal for use as fire-proof cabins or blast-proof accommodation in oil refineries.
To maximise the fire resistant properties and safety of prefabricated container buildings, the insulation, furniture and fixtures should be flame-retardant. We can provide fire rated insulation and fixtures on request.
VALUE FOR MONEY
Shipping container architecture from Stabil is a supremely cost-effective housing solution. Units can be purchased new or used, maximising their affordability for all. They can be stacked up to 7 units high, enabling you to build on a smaller plot of land, saving you the cost of buying many acres.
With no need to create large, complex foundations or use conventional building materials, manufacturing and construction time is shorter. Therefore, labour outlay costs are much lower than with a traditional build. You can create a fabulous home or a stand-out office building at the fraction of the cost of brick-and-mortar builds!
Concerned about termites, bugs and other pests? Thanks to the steel composition of the units and our expert know-how, your prefabricated container home or office will be free from insect infestations.
By the very nature of the materials, the units resist termites and pests as there are no timber beams for them to burrow through. Welded steel frames and corners create a solid building to keep critters at bay; you can even opt for concrete flooring as an extra precaution against burrowing insects. Pest-repelling treatments can be utilised in addition if you so wish.
Stackable, customisable and cost-effective; prefabricated container buildings offer versatility combined with good looks. Their boxy shape and neat lines make them easy to fit together, and they can be stacked for shipping, which simplifies the design, planning and transportation processes. You can stack the units and modify the design until you have your perfect arrangement… they can even be knitted out with modular furniture inside for a completely seamless look.
This contemporary, cutting-edge approach to construction is integral to modern-day living, and makes shipping containers equally ideal for use as post-disaster emergency housing, or more permanent apartment/office blocks.
Shipping container units are inherently eco-friendly. Each contains 3,500kg of steel – when they are reused, this is a huge saving for the environment! They are easily stacked and shipped which saves on transport emissions. The containers can also be melted down and recycled when no longer needed… used containers can be repurposed into anything you can think of!
Container units are more earth-friendly than traditional homes as there is no need for concrete or bricks (the manufacture of which impacts greatly on the environment). And as Stabil is partnered with industry-leading renewable energy service providers, we can incorporate solar or wind power supplies so you can live totally off-grid.
Strong, durable and inherently secure, shipping container buildings have been proven to withstand extreme weather conditions and natural disasters. Ours are built to the highest standard by Stabil professionals to ensure a sturdily constructed building that lasts.
The frames are made of steel not timber, so they won’t blow away or be ripped apart during a storm. So long as the units are correctly anchored to the foundation pads, even when stacked together they can resist strong winds, hurricanes and tornados. They are a safe place to hunker down during a storm and make for solidly built homes or business premises.
Stabil’s experts are at the forefront of the shipping container architecture industry. Container units, with their steel fabrication and framework, are exceptionally sturdy and highly durable, ensuring they can withstand whatever extremes Mother Nature throws at them!
All our buildings are carefully designed at every stage and solidly constructed for your complete peace of mind. With secure foundations in place, even stacked units retain their stability and can resist natural disasters such as earthquakes. Our prefabricated container buildings can last for generations and make ideal post-disaster housing as they can be constructed quickly and at short notice.
QUICK CONSTRUCTION/SAVES TIME
Stabil is your one-stop solution for shipping container architecture, saving you time and money. The majority of the construction will be performed at our factory and then your building will be assembled on-site. We use the latest industrial tools, machines and steel cutting blades to ensure a speedy but highly accurate construction and modification process.
Traditional builds require the manufacturing of bricks, the mixing of concrete, and the precision-cutting of timber frames – all of these processes take vast amounts of time, increasing the overall cost of your build. With shipping containers, the basis for your build is already there, it simply requires modification to your specifications!
Considering a shipping container building? Stabil’s expert team offers you a complete solution, managing everything from site inspection and module design to the manufacture and installation of your home or office. Our buildings are manufactured in a factory-controlled environment using the latest equipment to ensure their durability and reliability. Building in a factory and not outdoors on site means there are no construction delays due to adverse weather conditions.
We also offer built-in furniture and renewable energy supply services through our trusted partners. Insulation, flooring and additional roofing options can all be added to meet your specifications and achieve your dream design.
Shipping container units are a safe and secure housing option in areas prone to extreme weather conditions and frequent natural disasters. Solidly constructed, made of robust steel, and anchored using sturdy, purpose-made foundation pads, our modular builds are able to withstand strong winds and ocean waves year after year. This minimises the risk of your prefabricated container home or office being blown or washed away, saving you the cost of rebuilding your traditional structure.
The units make sound shelters during storms and tsunamis, and are suitable for use as post-disaster relief housing in poverty-stricken areas.
At Stabil, we take a forward-thinking eco-aware approach to today’s housing crisis. We also understand that modern architectural design has a tendency towards streamlined minimalism; our shipping container buildings embrace this trend without compromising on safety, security or luxury.
The units’ modular design is ideal for minimal living, as all furniture can be fully integrated to save space. Modern amenities such as CCTV and Biometrics systems can be incorporated, too. Extremely versatile, these buildings still allow you to add artistic flair to your design, so you can create your dream home. We give you a visually appealing end result that offers everything you need for modern life – affordably.
The ultimate in eco-friendly housing solutions, shipping containers can be reused, repurposed and recycled multiple times. Used containers prevent scrappage and wastage and help avoid the need to produce new bricks and cement.
Container units can be transformed into incredible homes and office buildings while causing minimal damage to the environment. Once the building has reached the end of its lifespan, the steel can be melted down and turned into something new! Environmentally-sound energy sources such as solar and wind power can be integrated into the design, creating a building that is eco-friendly in every aspect.
SPACE SAVING DESIGN
Stabil can help you create safe, long-lasting and highly attractive blocks of apartments or offices with stackable shipping container units. Robust and reliable steel framework and walls are designed to minimise the risk of fire and provide optimal durability.
The containers can be stacked up to 7 units high in places where space and land are at a premium, so schools, health clinics and student housing can be built within already crowded neighbourhoods. Built-in furniture can then be added to maximise space within the unit itself. In these modern times of housing crises and overpopulation, Stabil has the complete solution – one that’s both cost-effective and hugely versatile.
SUITABLE FOR OFF-GRID LIVING
We are the experts in shipping container architecture, offering you the complete solution from design to installation. Our comprehensive service allows for a seamless process; we have exclusively partnered with leading renewable energy service providers to give you the off-grid living experience you dream of.
We incorporate solar power or windmill systems at the design stage, so there’s no need to rely on conventional – often costly – energy sources. We take an eco-friendly approach to every design and build project; giving you what you want down to the finest detail is our number one priority.
The fabricated containers can be transported globally by sea. We will take necessary precautions in the design stage itself to get the unit approved by concerned authorities for seaworthy certificate, once it is completely fabricated. This facility will make our clients to shift their temporary container building units to another place once they complete their task at the location where they placed the building initially.
