A popular question from customers is about how to build their own warm, cozy shipping container home. You’ll need a good insulation plan, and InSoFast can help.
Cold winter temperatures can make the interior of your container home feel like an ice box. In hot weather, sun rays hitting the steel sheeting will make it unbearably hot and humid. InSoFast closed-cell EPS foam insulation panels are the ideal solution!
In comparison to other types of insulation products, our insulation panels are cost-effective, easy to install, take up very little interior space, control moisture, and will turn your metal box into an enjoyable living or working area.
InSoFast CX Container Panels are designed specifically for the side walls of shipping containers. They have a thin profile and take up only 2-inches of interior space, which will help keep the thickness of your walls to a minimum. They are affordable, lightweight, offer very high R-values, and can be affixed directly to the container sides with adhesive.
For maximum insulation and air-tightness, combine our specifically shaped side wall, end wall and ceiling InSoFast InSerts with InSoFast UX 2.0 or InSoFast EXi 2.5 panels. This combination provides skin-tight framing and insulation to support your drywall finishes and fills up all of the hidden airspace behind the drywall with solid closed-cell foam.
Once you complete the insulation, the interior finishing of your shipping container home is completely up to you. Drywall provides a clean, smooth finish and a ready-to-paint surface. Natural or varnished plywood can give the space a warm look. Fiberglass reinforced panels provide a tough, easy to clean, waterproof, washable wall surface.
Add interior partitions, or leave the space open. Enhance the useable area by adding an outdoor deck that can double as an outdoor living and dining area. The possibilities are endless!
