Portable Folding Container House

The foldable container house means that all the main components of the container (side walls, end walls, box top, etc.) can be simply folded or disassembled, and they can be easily reassembled when they are used again.

A folding container house can be quickly installed in 4 minutes and is the best solution for disaster reconstruction and construction site housing. Folding container houses are cheap, easy to install, fireproof, waterproof, and soundproof, and are widely used in construction site offices, dormitories, resettlement houses, hospitals, camps, etc. Our mission is to help low-income people develop happily with modular fast-packing houses. The projects we have exported include a Philippine isolation hospital, Singapore foreign worker dormitory, a Mali military camp, a Kenyan school, an Ethiopian container hotel, a Dubai coffee shop, a Guyana student dormitory, a Guatemala container restaurant, etc.

Folding Container House Project

Folding Container House Interior

Four Steps to Build a Foldable Container House

The production and assembly of all the components of the folding container house are prefabricated at the factory. You can install the Folding House on the job site in just four steps.

1. Use the crane to live its roof. Lift its roof slowly until the house is unfolded and stop the crane there.

2. Expand the front and back walls of the container. Push the front and back from inside, and make it stand in the correct place.

3. Use the bolts to fix the whole structure. There will be premade bolt holes on the columns, and we will provide enough bolts for you to fix them.

4. Install the door lock. To prevent the door lock from damaging the ceiling during the folding process, we will not install the door lock in advance. If you need to move the house to another place and need to fold it, please remember to take down the door lock in advance also.

The whole structure of the folding container house is prefabricated in our factory. The window, door, ceiling, floorboard, and electric parts are all installed in advance. So when this container house is transported to your site, you only need to use a crane to lift the roof slowly, then the structure will unfold, and then you use some high strength bolts to fix the beam so the structure can stand there solidly.

The hinge is produced by our own factory, and it’s thicker and stronger than others, guaranteeing the long life span for the whole structure.

3. Waterproof Design

This container house folding in china is improved with the development of technology upgrades. For the roof, we will create an arch, and the roof sheet is lap joint together, so the rainwater is easy to fall down, will not stay on the roof and it’s will not leak through the joint of the two roof sheets.

For the folding structure, the folding part is an S-shaped connection, so the rainwater will definitely not go inside through the connection joints. All the steel structure is galvanized, which means it has a good performance on the corrosive resistance. You can use it safely even if it is rainy in your local.

You can decide how to use the spaces freely, and we provide you with the space.

It can not only be used as a portable office, temporary accommodation, kitchen & Dining hall, public toilet, shower rooms, but also can be used as the recreation room, meeting room, etc.

6. Eco-friendly Material
