Are Container Homes Storm & Earthquake Proof?


In a nutshell Yes!

Container homes are solid blocks of steel and extremely robust. When arranged in either single units or multiple units connected, they can withstand 100 MPH winds on a foundation, or 175 MPH winds when easily anchored with pylons. This means they are extremely solid in Tornado’s or Hurricanes.


As a solid unit the vibration or shaking will not make the container break. The contents may be disturbed but will not fall down or crumble like a traditional building. Even in a direct hit, the structure may possibly roll around a little but certainly not collapse. It would be the most perfect safety cocoon in an Earthquake. It would be at least 100 times safer and stronger than a conventional housing structure. …in any earthquake, we would much rather be inside a Container King home than a normal home or office.
