Emergency Response / Preparedness Containers

They are made of heavy gauge steel framing. The corner posts are designed for a 150,000lbs vertical load. The steel walls are continuously welded and can withstand over 2,000lbs of a transverse load and 1,000lbs of a longitudinally load. The floor can hold over 65,000lbs.
Cratex offers a variety of smaller container sizes that are very durable, yet easy to move around with a forklift, and can even be secured to concrete blocks on the ground if required.

The container is weather tight, so supplies and even food will stay dry indefinitely.
Many local businesses and schools are already utilizing this method of Emergency Preparedness.
