The walls and roof are corrugated gauge steel. The floor is 1" 1/16 plywood with steel cross members every 12 inches. They are rated for a 22,000 psi or 24,000 psi forklift footprint. All floors are coated underneath with a water proof membrane. For measurement and weight specifications, view sizes/types chart.
