Protect Your Shipping Container and Contents

The right thermal insulation can protect your container's contents. Spray foam can provide insulation, a vapor barrier, and even fire resistance with the correct material. Insulation can keep your contents safe from rapid temperature swings while in transit or storage. Climate-controlled containers may need special materials for maximum thermal protection and water resistance. The right insulation can save you money on energy costs, and stand up to freezing temperatures or water condensation.

When on the road, container insulation can help your units stand up to harsh conditions and exposure to the elements. Spray foam is an excellent choice that can add to the structural integrity of your container. A coat of the correct insulation material can help prevent small water leaks which can eventually pool and damage container contents. The right insulation can provide protection that goes beyond the heat and cold.

If you are converting a shipping container to an office or other workspace, spray foam can give you a comfortable environment that is more cost-efficient to heat or cool. Container conversions can provide mobile offices for job sites or flexible working spaces with special requirements. Proper insulation can make these conversions more comfortable, quiet, and energy efficient. Sound protection is an important feature for containers converted to office space. You need a quiet working environment with the lowest possible energy cost. We are able to help you pick the right combination of materials that can help make your container conversion project a success.

Types of Container Insulation

Depending on your container insulation needs there are different materials to choose from. Each insulation material has its own benefits and drawbacks. If your container insulation project involves pre-owned containers it may be necessary to remove insulation that is damaged or not suitable for your project. A professional assessment is needed to determine if and when old insulation needs replacement.

Spray Foam is an excellent choice for container insulation. It provides good insulation ability, and can offer water resistance depending on the type of spray foam used. Spray foam insulation comes in two major types: open-cell and closed-cell. Closed-cell is more compact and has a higher insulation rating compared to open-cell insulation. While it can be more expensive than open-cell insulation the mix of compact placement and water resistance often makes it the best choice for container insulation. Open-cell spray foam insulation can be cheaper, but has less water resistance and uses more space to achieve the same R-value as closed-cell. Closed-cell spray foam is usually the ideal container insulation material.

When fire resistance is a priority, spray foam insulation can give you the protection you need. Spray foam insulation can accept different fireproofing treatments depending on the protection level required. Fireproofing spray foam insulation is a process of applying fireproofing materials over top of spray foam and is best handled by professionals who have the training and experience to choose the right materials and use them correctly. If your container insulation install project must be fire-resistant or fireproof contact us for a professional assessment and recommendation.

Other types of insulation commonly used in containers are foam boards and fiberglass batting. These materials often cannot create a leak-proof seal or provide insulation levels as high as spray foam. If you have a container with some of these insulation products already installed, they can be removed to install new insulation. Our team can assist with the removal and disposal of old insulation from containers

Professional Container Insulation

Professional insulation installers know what is required for different container insulation projects. Untrained workers may not know the best material for the job or understand how to apply it correctly. This can result in higher costs or failure to meet minimum requirements. Spray foam installation is a skill. Professional installers have enough experience to apply material correctly without waste. Untrained maintenance workers can have difficulty installing spray foam without accidentally using more than necessary. When you’re insulating many containers this waste can add up to significantly higher costs for the overall project.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to insulate my entire container?2022-11-23T03:45:08-07:00

Not necessarily. Depending on your project it’s possible to only insulate certain areas. Insulation materials can be installed differently depending on need. For instance, containers that are being prepared for refrigeration require more insulation than those just needing vapor barriers. Contact us for a professional assessment and discover all of the choices.

Can I insulate the outside of containers?2022-11-23T03:45:35-07:00

Yes. Many spray foam materials can be applied to the outside of containers. Spray foam roofing has excellent insulation ability, and can be used for some exterior container applications.
