Powder and magazines had thick walls or were built into the ground. This was to help contain any blast that might occur. Common material used for the construction of magazines were earth, stone, concrete, or brick. Heavy wood beams, rafters, and doors were covered with zinc or galvanized iron. The doors to the magazines were kept locked to prevent pilfering.
