Flatpack containers are specifically manufactured for use as accommodation or office units. These units have been hugely successful in construction sites, as labor accommodation, supervisor offices and military personnel in conflict zones.
Flatpack containers use the same skeletal structure as marine containers, but without the steel sheets. Instead composite panels are used as the walls of the units. Flatpacks have now become a suitable alternative to traditional containers due to a number of reasons, mainly being :
- Ease of erection - a single unit can be erected within hours.
- Flexibility – A number of units can joined together to give a wide range of layout options.
- Transportation – Since these units come in a knock down structure, 4 units can be mounted on a single trailer or a single 20’ container, thus reducing transportation costs by upto 75% per unit.
