In terms of structural integrity, shipping containers are very secure.  Besides being pest and vermin proof shipping containers are also highly wind and weatherproof as they are designed to endure salty sea air, which is highly corrosive. As a result, you may have noticed that shipping container constructions are suitable to be set up close to water.

For personal security, there is provision for a padlock to be fitted to the door, however we recommend our customers to modify containersto include a steel Lock Box for added security if they need their container to be vandalproof. A Lock Box is designed to protect the container’s lock from being tampered with.
