Build your own safe haven!

At SMC, we not only recommend our shipping containers to be used for shipping, but we also have some other innovative ways to use them to share with you. We manufacture shipping containers of different dimensions, and different functionality, which can serve your specific needs accordingly. All our containers are characterized by durability, relatively inexpensive price, and sustainability.

If you are looking to build an underground shelter or basement to make into a safe haven for your family, for example in times of hurricanes and other natural disasters, containers are a good resource to build this shelter. They are easy-to-set up, highly durable, and can be fixed onto a foundation made from cement, bricks or even wood. This is merely just to ensure that the shelter is anchored well to the ground, and more secure.

Make yourself a comfortable underground bunker using our containers!

The idea of making a shelter out of containers also comes handy for military bases, which may be in remote areas where it isn’t so easy to build with conventional building materials; and can sometimes be of great use when making a secret hideout place for soldiers at war for instance. We have a variation of prefabricated containers which ensure great durability and are more sustainable  for containers used as shelter of a dwelling place in nature.

Our containers also come handy as affordable, easy to set up structures. In developing countries’ remote areas, where there may not be enough resources to build a hospital for instance, our containers can be used as a mobile clinic as it is can easily loaded onto the back of a truck and driven to the place of need.  

To make the perfect shelter for your needs, visit our website for more information about our various containers and other products. Contact us for free inquiry.

Get Bent: Apple

All the buzz around Apple’s newest iPhone6 may not be that of a success. Not even its 10 million iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models sold in three days after the phones went on sale. Rather, it seems like the new ‘bendable’ iPhone6 is even a hotter hit, going viral on social media as hashtag #BendGate.

Embedded image permalink

Not only a rumor but proved by a number of pictures published on the world web, the new iPhone6 and iPhone6 Plus easily bend when carried in owners’ pockets for long periods of time. Others claimed the flexibility of the new phone while having more active lifestyle and dancing.

The question whether this affects all the devices or if it is limited to a small number of phones is still unclear, and Apple has not yet pronounced. Last year there were similar cases involving iPhone 5, the Samsung Galaxy S4, the HTC EVO, and many others, but this is actually the first time the bending issue has become an “epidemic”.

Embedded image permalink

Ironically, the reports claiming the issue came out the same day that smartphone warranty provider SquareTrade called the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus the “most durable smartphones ever”. Significantly larger and thinner than the traditional iPhone, the iPhone6 and iPhone6 Plus are encased by aluminum enclosure, which is a naturally flexible material.

CNNMoney received a test model and several staffers tried and failed to change its shape using brute force. What this will mean for the future of iPhones? Well, earlier this year the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) recently published Apple’s patent application which describes a new technology to be integrated with bendable displays. It talks about a new method on how to use tiny metal components in a way that prevents them from breaking when the display is bent. It might be it?

For now, what remains for iPhone6 owners is to remove their iPhones from their pockets before sitting, placing them in a less tight pocket, or choose for a more resistant case that could protect the device from bending and flexing. And if you still think of acquiring an iPhone6 or iPhone6 Plus, it is available in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, and the UK and it will go on sale in 20 more countries on September 26th and others by the end of the year.

Navigating a World of Darkness

Imagine waking up in the morning and seeing nothing but darkness.  This is the reality for approximately 39 million people around the world who suffer from complete blindness.  Recently there have been incredible scientific advances in curing blindness such as gene therapy and doctors have even managed to create a bionic eye that, through electrical stimulation of the brain, allows the patient to see.

eye6Unfortunately, these treatment options are incredibly expensive and given that 90% of the worlds blind live in low income countries they are completely unaffordable.  So the questions becomes how can we help the blind navigate the crowded bustling cities of the developing world?  The answer lies in the paths and sidewalks themselves.

Without vision ones only means of navigating their surrounding is through sound and touch.  Many blind people use sticks to feel around in front of them, yet this is can be tedious and time consuming for the affected person.

The solution lies in installing differentiated paths within the sidewalks so that they can simply walk along them and know that they are safe. Currently many cities have these paths; however, they are made out of concrete which can deteriorate as a result of too much foot traffic.

Fortunately, many cities are turning towards other materials such as metals as they can survive more abuse.  The best metal products for this improvement are cerro fabricated products (CFP).  CFP products work perfectly for this task as they are durable and can be made into whatever pattern is necessary to differentiate the path from its surroundings.

Shanghai Metal Corporation is committed to improving the quality of life of people the world over.  We believe that blindness is a major issue in the world and we are committed to alleviating the suffering of the afflicted.   CFP products are part of our commitment to improving the quality of life for people the world over.

How China Can Save Europe from Crisis

The dissolution of the Soviet Union is arguably one of the greatest geopolitical disasters of human history.  It resulted in the rise of ethnic nationalism and ethnic based conflicts across Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

normal_Jeltoqsan86_2

Many of the new countries had mixed Russian and local population and after centuries of repression under the Russian Empire, and later the Soviet Union, tensions were high. This is the basic history behind the current war in Ukraine.

ukraine1

Russia is backing the anti Ukrainian forces with both financial and military aide.  As a result many European Union members have levied sanctions against Russia which have the potential to hurt all parties involved. As the 6th largest exporter of steel there is a massive gap that will need to be filled and this is where China can not only make a vast amount of profit, but also improve relations with the EU.

image

The economic recovery in the EU is fragile at best and any major shock could end the recovery and cause a recession.  This is of particular concern in Europe where many nations are dependent on Russia for their raw materials and mineral resources.  As many EU members want to limit their dependence on Russia, China is presented with a great opportunity to become Europe’s new de facto supplier of raw building materials.

image

China and the EU are becoming more interdependent on each other and adding Chinese steel to the equation will only increase economic cooperation.  Furthermore, as Russian sanctions begin to take affect all over Europe the governments of these regions will most certainly be grateful to any nation that helps them avoid another economic crisis.

Shanghai Metal Corporation has been following the developments in Eastern Europe closely and with great concern.  We take the economic health of the EU and the world as a whole very seriously.  One of our main products is structural steel and it will be an honour to supply the EU if and when the need arises.
