Just the word steel makes us think of great strength and resistance. Superman was the Man of Steel. When someone has steady nerves, great patience or courage we refer to them as having nerves of steel. The words strong and hard are found in the actual definition of steel so it is of no surprise that we choose steel as the main component of storage containers. We look for durability, security, weather resistance and theft resistance to store and protect our valuable assets.
Weathering steel or weather resistant steel was developed in the 1930s by the United States Steel Corporation and is trademarked as Cor-Ten. It features a controlled corrosion quality that makes it capable of withstanding weather as well as weight. Regular carbon steel has a porous oxide layer which holds moisture. This moisture can develop rust which can grow and weaken the surface especially in wet or humid situations. Cor-Ten or weathering steel has an oxide film on the surface which provides more resistance to moisture and corrosion.
Every business has unique storage needs. Portable steel containers made with Cor-Ten steel provide safe and secure storage for your inventory, tools and other valuable equipment. These containers are heavy duty, long lasting structures that make an excellent alternative to traditional storage. You might even call them “Super!”
