Transforming shipping containers into usable storage or living facilities requires appropriate insulation to deal with extreme high and low temperatures as well as the corrosive consequences of condensation. Choosing the best way to insulate a shipping container is key to a successful container conversion.
Since 2006, InSoFast, LLC has been on the cutting edge of the insulation industry. We offer patented and patent-pending Expanded Polystyrene Foam panels that we make and ship directly from our sites in Massachusetts, Minnesota, South Dakota, and Idaho. Our innovative insulation solutions will provide your project exactly what’s required for an outstanding shipping container conversion.
In the past, shipping containers weren’t considered ideal for human habitation due to the very nature of the steel structure. With the addition of effective insulation, though, builders use them for all sorts of projects. Cost-effective and eco-friendly, shipping container conversions are great for storage, offices, businesses, and even homes.
Making sure that the temperature within the structure is comfortable and that condensation doesn’t cause rust that decays the structure is easy with efficient use of insulation. Luckily, InSoFast offers an easily applied, cost-effective solution.
InSoFast CX Container Panels are designed for the side walls of most shipping containers and take the hassle out insulating and framing. Their thin profile takes up only two inches of interior space. One of the biggest benefits is that most installations can be completed by do-it-yourselfers with a utility knife, hand saw, glue and a caulk gun.
The 44” x 24” panels fit the width between the weld seams on the long side walls of the container and are set up for an 11-inch repeating pattern of corrugation. They are installed horizontally with the studs running vertically to allow the studs to adhere to the interior facing ribs of the container.
InSoFast InSerts for side walls, end walls, and ceiling are specifically shaped sleeves of EPS foam that are designed to close up the container’s corrugation air gaps. Once glued in place, the surfaces will be flush and ready for coverage in full InSoFast panels.
