Rock Climbing on The Containers of Bangalore

After reading the many articles of applications of shipping containers, even I still get amazed on how many there already are and how many there are still to come. It seems that whenever they discover a new way to modify containers’ structure the number of new applications starts to grow rapidly.

For instance, what if you flipped a 20 ft container on its head, what kind of structure would that be? Perhaps a clock tower like this?

Well, an Indian company Mars Adventures has used this simple approach to build a rock climbing facility in Bangalore.

At Mars Climbing Gym at Play park Bangalore there are three different climbing facilities including 50 ft high climbing zone, 60 ft wide bouldering arena and a 20 ft high roof climbing setup.

The 50 ft container climbing wall lets three people climb at the same time under professional surveillance. The roof climbing setup is a facility where people can climb inside a 20 ft tall shipping container. They open this facility only for professional climbers.

What ever is the application, shipping containers won’t change always stay within industry standards. Shanghai Metal Corporation will also keep on shipping these building blocks to our customers worldwide. Our wide selection is worth seeing and maybe you’ll discover new  applications for them.
