Can anyone tell me where I could get an engineering document thats shows what weight the container will take, (ie snow load) or how much wind it will withstand. I am trying to use one of these containers in my yard but am having problems showing town council it will meet or exceed the building code for garages and carports. I know there must be something somewhere as these are stacked 7 high fully loaded and subjected to lots of wind on the ships.

Thank you

the ISBU as one is not like another.

Here is a link to a manufacturer.

It states to contact them for technical specifications:

Hello Handyman, thanks for the reply, I will contact them and see if they can help. I have sent numerous emails out to different people but do not receive much response. It may be different if I was purchasing one from them. It would also help if the person I was dealing with at Town office was not so narrow minded.
