Storage Containers used as Sound Barriers

Oct 6, 2010

Usually, when companies or individuals call in needing storage containers, it's because they need to store stuff in the containers.  Whether it be farmers who need to store hay or feed on their ranch, or construction companies needing to store equipment on job sites, the storage containers provide a wind and water tight secure place to store these items.  

However, I received a call today from an oil company in Austin who needed the storage containers to create sound barriers at their drilling location.  The company was needing twenty 40' storage containers to literally place around the drilling location since it was near a residential area.  Because of the heavy duty 16 gauge galvanized steel the storage containers are made out of, they create a sturdy barrier for the wind and sound in order for the company to drill.  The storage containers can also be stacked on top of one another and very close together creating somewhat of a wall barrier.  Isn't it amazing how many uses storage containers can provide?
