  • Can also be used as a structure (By itself or as a module, (Although as modules structural integrity must be evaluated to avoid accidental collapse due to overstressing etc) )
  • Can be purchased new, used (Can they be made and still be used legally/commercially be accepted? Needs Research)
  • Can also be purchased with systems such as refrigeration units
  • Metal Protective Coatings , may be included, but adding/maitaining/replacing them may help lifespan along with Cathodic Protection may help
  • Do any lighter ones exist (Composite perhaps?) needs research
