Live Fire Training Facilities & Burn Rooms

Custom built fire training facilities for fire departments and fire fighter training academies.

Custom built fire training facilities for fire departments, constructed from steel shipping containersFire departments and fire fighter training academies are always looking for ways to simulate real life situations for initial and on-going training. Likewise, police and military training academies must also create facilities to meet their specific training needs. When using modified shipping containers to build a custom training facility, the sky is the limit!

Many departments and academies have already chosen to create custom fire training facilities and burn rooms from modified steel shipping containers. Below are just a few reasons why modified steel containers a good option for fire training facilities:

Modular Training Buildings are Scalable and Customizable
Building with shipping containers offers a lot of flexibility and scalability, so your design can easily grow over time. It's also efficient, as construction of the building and site work can happen in tandem. 

We can build a training unit as one large, complete structure, or it can be designed in parts and put together in stages, much like lego blocks. Plus, we can include props, such as steel cars or gas pumps, and build to your specifications, including things like catwalks or balconies, or rappel walls on the exterior.

Easy to Control and Safer for Trainees
We can design burn rooms with custom electrical and ventilation, including:

• Exhaust systems to remove heat from fire burn rooms
• Controls to monitor the rate of fire growth, extinguishment of fire and temperature in the burn rooms
• Water base smoke generation and distribution system

“We purchased a tactical rescue building constructed of six shipping containers supplied and modified by BigSteelBox. They were very conscious of our requirements and the requirements for safety and usability. Their staff provided valuable input and delivery was on time as promised.”

We deliver a BigSteelBox to your home, you pack it at your own pace, then we pick it up and move it to your new home. If you need storage, keep the Box at your place or we'll store it at one of our secure locations.

Benefits of Building with Steel

BigSteelBoxes are built for ocean shipping and withstanding the elements, so they're much more solid, durable and stackable than trailers.
