Low Cost Idea for Putting Wheeled Shipping Containers on Raised RSJ H Beam Rails for portability and to Reduce Groundwork Costs

Low Cost Idea for Putting Wheeled Shipping Containers on Raised RSJ H Beam Rails for portability and to Reduce Groundwork Costs 

To move a container onto a field or wood without building a road 

A raised track of RSJ H beams is welded together atop of large metal pipe supports piers.filled with concrete with Hd concrete foundations / piles

The empty or lightly insulated 10, 15 0r 20ft (40 ft may be too heavy) ISO containers with HD castor wheels attached on each corner with a castor lock system, or similar, which can be wheeled onto the rail across the field. 


To further reduce cost  rsj beams & pipes are often available from scrapyards

c shaped purlins can then attached across the top of the rails, and a wood beam road for walking / cycling/ scooters to access the container can be mounted. 

This will not be strong enough for cars, thogh welding further rsj beam supports across may be strong enough 







Design for an Insulated mobile room on wheels for privacy & warmth within a larger room shared with other people

 San Diego unveils unorthodox homelessness solution: big tents https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/mar/29/san-diego-homelessness-big-tents

The above article has reminded me of an idea I had 2 yrs ago.

What would concern me about a large tent is the level of noise disturbance with dogs / pets & disease transferance   risk / lack of privacy.

 I had an idea to part remedy this situation, though it is designed for a solid floor, not dirt so the wheels work


Design

Make an insulaled  box for 2 adults or up to 4 children to sleep in,, made of  fibreglass or metal sided kingspan sheets on the floor (to take weight ) resting on a 4to 6 ' frame of 2,3 or 4  clothes rails ( the cheapest wheeled option ( take 50-70kg each rail  )

 The walls & roof would be of aluminium sided pir rigid foam 30-40mm

yet if this is damaged by users , grp skin may be needed

rails  £16 each inc p+p for 6 ft

The box is simpler to make if it will sit within the frame, yet if it sits outside the frame can be used to hang clothes or hammock etc on.  


Heavier duty one are best for £30 +each as they take 150 kg each for adults .
Smaller lighter ones for kids

These would provide privacy & heat / noise insulation within a larger room of people . Yet be movable, and raised above the cold or damp ground .

I bought the rails to make a prototype , but have not had time to make a prototype
