Shipping Container: Estimating and Panel Installation


Where to Start:

1. Surface and Application choices and definitions.

The first question to ask is why are you interested in insulating a container?  What do you want to achieve when you are finished, the end result?  What surfaces do you need to frame and insulate?  A container is a cube with 6 sides, each side has 2 surfaces that can be framed and insulated. Add together interior and exterior, now the surfaces to insulate equals 12 sides with windows, doors, then R-Value the combinations are limitless. Container Wall Call Outs

Make a plan and stick to it don't over-estimate your needs. Measure twice order once. BEFORE you order is the best time to talk with a design professionals and building code officials to discuss regulations, permits, and codes surrounding container building in your area. Different locations have their own set of rules, zoning and building permit requirements. Find your local State R-Value Code Requirements

2. How to Choose the Best Container.

There is not a defined universal grading system for containers. If you are planning on purchasing and converting a container for storage, a man cave, she shed, mobile office, or just insulated storage we recommend a personal visual inspection. It is okay to act like a Missourian, (the SHOW ME state). It will always be easier to modify a container in good condition then one with dings, dents, rust, and holes. 


3. Wall Preparation per Industry Standards
    • Ensure all surfaces are clean of any debris, dust, loose paint, etc before installing InSoFast panels. It is up to the installer to determine the suitability of the adhesive for the surface you are bonding to. If in doubt, an adhesive performance test can be done.
    • Eliminate any leaks before installing InSoFast panels. Do not penetrate the steel walls of your container with screws or fasteners. This compromises the continuous seal and can introduce moisture-related issues.
    • If the container has large dented or indented areas, we recommend hammering them as smooth as possible before installing InSoFast products. As an alternative, the foam of the panel or insert can be adjusted by either carving away the InSoFast foam or by adding spray foam as as a dent filler.
    • Cut out and frame all openings before installing any InSoFast panels or inserts.
4. Abbreviations for rating the condition of used shipping containers.

It can be very confusing purchasing new or second hand container. Every supplier and reseller can grade conditions on a different scale of good, better, or best, ABC’s, 123’s, and other industry acronyms and certifications. The alphabetic soup of ratings. It all sound so complicated and confusing. Yet it is fairly simple, inspect your container before you make the investment. Would you buy a used car before you took it for a test ride?

  • Institute of International Container Lessors –The IICL sets repair standards, by which all repairs are carried out. IICL is the strictest standards for used containers. Tools and Guides.
  • Cargo WorthyCW  Standard under which a used shipping container is deemed suitable for the shipping cargo.  The CW or Cargo Worthy standard generally implies that the container has a valid CSC.  That little plate attached to the container Convention for Safe Containers. Look for the latest inspection date.
  • Wind & Water Tight – WWT a standard under which containers are literally wind and water tight. In short, if you lock yourself inside the container, you should not see any light coming through the panels or roof. WWT makes no reference to the quality of the understructure.
  • Convention for Safe Containers –CSC established in 1972 to promote and maintain a high level of safety of human life in the transport and handling of containers by providing generally acceptable test procedures and related strength requirements.
  • International Standardization Organization – ISO International organization based in Geneva working towards harmonizing worldwide technical standards; including those governing the construction of shipping containers.

Define Project Scope or End Use:

The Designed end use of the container;
In this section we define and narrow the available choices for insulating a container depending on the intended end use of the shipping container.
1. Finished Interior Space;

Finished Interior Space; suitable or good enough to live in. This would be walls that would achieve higher R-Values, and would require planned services like electric, plumbing, windows and door openings and higher-grade finishes and cabinetry.

2. Commercial Interior Space;

Commercial Interior Space; office space, commercial spaces, retail pop-ups and other high-end habitable spaces. These would be walls that would achieve higher R-Values, and planned services like electric, plumbing, windowsand door openings and higher-grade finishes and cabinetry.

3. Industrial-Agricultural Interior Spaces;

Industrial-Agricultural Interior Spaces; These would be walls where interior space is at a premium and services can be surface mounted. Insulation values can vary but a clean and durable finish materials like FRP fiber reinforced plastic or metal are desirable.

 

4.Exterior Finishes with InSoFast;

InSoFast stable insulation panel will work well with most exterior finishes. Stucco, thin veneer stone, weathered steel siding, and board and batten siding's to name just a few finishes. The insulated framing systems allows the designer a wide range of options. The air tight water tight steel shell need not be compromised with hundreds of screws for just attaching exterior finishes.

  1. Framing the lower Exterior wall
  2. Weathered steel siding install
  3. Board and Batten Exterior install

The weathered steel we chose is heavier than most available material siding. Weathered steel, often referred to as *(Cor-Ten). Corten develops a light rust layer that once formed, will protect the underlying material and prevent further corrosion. That is why we chose it for this InSoFast project we are hoping for a dramatic yet rustic finished shipping container.


Side Wall Panels & Inserts Applications

Side Wall Insulation Options;
In this section we cover the available choices for insulating the long side wall of a container. The corrugation profile differs from the end wall and ceiling. The inserts, LowPro studs, and panels are engineer to fit the side wall's geometry.
Side Wall Application Options;

Options for finishing the long side wall of containers.

  1. Option: Finished Interior Space; suitable space to live in, commercial interior space; office space, labratories, retail pop-ups and other high-end habitable spaces. These walls should achieve higher R-Values, and require planned services like electric, plumbing, windows and door openings and higher-grade finishes. The CX 44 panel is best suited for this application if the container is in good to excellent condition.
  2. Option: Industrial-Agricultural Interior Spaces; These would be walls where interior space is at a premium and services can be surface mounted. Insulation values can vary but a clean and durable finish materials like FRP fiber reinforced plastic or metal are desirable. The CX-LowPro insulated studs, side wall inserts, with flat stock insulation provided by others. This method is adaptable and suited for application when the container is in fair to good to condition. The studs and inserts are easier to modify and make plumb and level.on. The studs and inserts are easier to modify and make plumb and level.
  3. Option: Finished insulated exterior;  Walls where exterior finished attachment is the primary application requirement. Insulation thickness can be increased to meet higher energy codes. The CX-LowPro insulated studs, side wall inserts, with flat stock insulation provided by others is the best exterior choice. This method is suited for this application when the container is in fair to good to condition. The studs and inserts are easier to modify and make plumb and level.
  4. Option: Just using inserts with foam by others. A container is an airtight environment. The corrugations presents a unique challenge when insulating a container. Humidity can get trapped in the corrugations which can lead to problematic hidden condensation, aka: “Sweating Metal”. The inserts reduce that hidden dead air space reducing the potential condensation. We believe the best way to insulate a container is to themally buffer the steel from sudden cooling that invites cold condensations points from occurring.
1. Option- CX44 Side Wall Panel;

CX 44 Container Panel

The InSoFast CX 44 Container panel is designed to fit most shipping container's long side walls. It's ideal application is more formal residential/office finished habital space.  Refer to the container diagrams to determine if the InSoFast CX 44 will fit your container’s corrugations. The corrugations should be 11" on center the proper fit is very important. We recommend that you purchase a Container Sample Kit and physically measure the CX 44 panel's fit to the weld seams on your container. Make sure that you have a uniform 44" on center spacing for the container's welds.

The panel is optimized for interior finishing with the electrical raceways built-in, CX44 is adaptable and will on the exterior walls applications too. The panel’s solid airtight construction helps prevents steel container condensation issues. CX44 panel varies in thickness from 2" to 3 1/2″ thick of closed-cell, injection-molded EPS foam and achieves R-11 insulation.  The specifically shaped EPS is designed to fill the inset corrugation of a shipping container where the side wall weld seams are 44"on center.  If the weld seams are less than 44" this may involve trimming the panels to fit.  Contact our technical department about triming and stack bonding panel alternative methods of installation. 

Side Wall corrugation dimensions that the CX44 will fit.

  • The CX 44 Panel 24" x 44"
      • It is a good choice as a base panel for the InSoFast PLUS when higher R-Value is needed. 
      • It is a good choice when a finished livable space is desired.
      • Designed to fit 44" wide weld seam to weld seam.
      • CX44  Panel (5 panels/box) 36.67 s.f.
        • One 20’ high cube wall would require 5 boxes of the CX 44 panels
        • One 40’ high cube wall would require 10 boxes of the CX 44 panels

2. Option- LowPro Insulated Stud;

CX LowPro Insulated Studs

CX LowPro a hybrid engineered solution for insulating containers for interior or exterior applications. The CX-LP studs are ideally suited for intermodal container conversions and are best suited for industrial applications where thin wall insulation and framing is the primary need. (If you are not planning to embed electric services like wiring in the wall, or if you are planning surface mounted conduit. One of the many benefits to the stud, it is easier to modify and adapt to accommidate dings and dents of older containers. The CX-LP is a hybrid method designed to address the overseas freight charges. CX-LP insulated stud method of application utilizes locally sourced flat foam board to reduce overseas freight.  The insulated stud is ideal eliminating framing cold spots when insulating a container.

    • One box of the CX-LP 46 Insulated studs will do 92 lineal feet of framing.   One 20' container side wall would need 44 pcs, of CX LoPros insulated studs and 20 pcs. of the Side Wall Inserts to do one side.
      • One box of Side Wall Inserts has 30 pcs. that are 48 inches long or will cover 112 Lineal feet of corrugation in-fill.

The high-strength co-polymer plastic studs on 11 or 22-inches centers provide a positive attachment stud for finishing the container. The ribbed dovetails surface provides for adhesive applications against the metal surfaces.

CX LowPro Insulated Studs, (CX-LP) is ideal for export. The InSoFast panels, comprised of 98% air; they are bulky and expensive to ship. So like oranges made into orange juice, we concentrated the best attributes of our insulated panels into a cost competitive exportable insulated stud. Typically, an overseas container will hold enough insulation panels of our CX44 to fabricate 4-5 completely insulated shipping containers, with the LowPro Stud and locally sourced flat foam board 40-50

Insulating a shipping container is a balancing act between space, comfort, energy efficiency, and humidity control, LowPro gives you that control.


3. Option- UX Flat Panel and InSerts

The UX 2.0 Flat Panel and insert method for side wall has material to finish the side wall of a shipping container for interior or exterior applications. The UX Flat panel and inserts is a two-step process insulated first with the (CWS) Side Wall Inserts to infill the wall's corrugated voids preventing hidden condensation. The UX2.0 (48″ x 24″) panels are installed over the inserts so that the black studs run horizontally, crossing over the container's corrugations, providing maximum contact between the InSoFast studs and the steel container. Theis is the quickest and easiest method used when the container 's condition is less than optimal.

    1. Preferred method when modifying older containers with dings and dents.
    2. When weld seams are greater than or less than 44" on center.
    3. Industrial fast track application.

4. Option- Inserts with flat stock foam and tradional framing;

The side wall of a shipping container interior or exterior applications.  If you just need to just insulate a container for insulated storage and covering the insulation is not a concern we recommend the (CWS) Side Wall Inserts to infill the wall's corrugated voids to prevent hidden condensation. Then install locally sourced board stock insulation over the steel container's exposed metal surfaces. 

    1. Inexpensive method when modifying older containers with dings and dents prevent cold condensation surfaces.
    2. Industrial fast track application not suitible for habitital spaces, storage only.
      1. Check with local code restrictions for exposed foam insulation fire requirements.
    3. Traditional framing, wood or steel studs, would need to be installed with drywall and optional additional insulation in order to make the container into a habital space

The Recommended Adhesive:

PL Premium

1. Why Use Loctite PL Premium 3x;

Loctite PL Premium

LOCTITE® PL PREMIUM® POLYURETHANE CONSTRUCTION ADHESIVE

New Look Buy Shipping Container Insulation Panels in Monroe, NC

Green Guard Certified Adhesive:

One of the many reasons we recommend Loctite PL Premium is it has the GREENGUARD Certification.  It is important to us that you use an adhesive that has low chemical emissions, you are building in an airtight shipping container, improving the quality of the air you breath is kind of important.

InSoFast panels were designed with simplicity in mind and we would argue that gluing them is not only the easiest method of installation but often the most effective. Third-party testing has shown the adhesive bond strength of our studs to have 108psi of holding power. This means each adhered panel is capable of holding over 5,000lbs!

In Canada the Glue is LePage PL Premium

Testing was conducted using Loctite PL Premium’s 3X Stronger Construction Adhesive, (in Canada it is marketed under the LePage PL Premium brand,) on clean concrete surfaces. It is the only adhesive we have tested. Other formulas and brands may not work as expected.

2. Estimating Adhesive Quantity;

Estimating Adhesive Quantity

Estimating the amount of adhesive YOU will use has variables beyond our control like condition of your walls and how accurate are you with a glue gun? The example below is for one side wall of a 20' standard height shipping container you will need approximately 3 tubes of the adhesive. That is in a perfect world. PL Premium 3x adhesive is applied in a ⅜" bead on the backside of the studs onto the ribbed surfaces.  We realize that a 3/8" bead of glue is very subjective. It is important that there is enough adhesive to squish the dovetails on the back side of the stud when pressed to the container wall. Adhesive follows the "Goldie Locks rule, too much, too little, and just right. If you are doing just right you can expect that 1 large 28-fl oz tube will cover 18 of our 24" long studs or enough glue at a 3/8" bead to cover 36 foot long bead of glue. 

Additionally you will have to estimate for glue around openings like windows and doors.

1 large 28-fl oz / 828 mL tube = 18 (24" studs or inserts)

  • CX 44 (22 panels with 2 studs each plus 8 end wall edges) = 52
  • 52 ÷ 18 = 3 tubes of the adhesive

 To verify that enough adhesive is used, press the panel into place. Pull the panel back and check to see if the adhesive has spread out beyond the full width of the stud. It is normal for the panel to "float out" from the side of the container when it is accommodating irregularities in the container walls. Additional adhesive may be necessary in some areas.

3. Adhesive Quantity Chart;

4. Important Notice: Container Surface Preparation, Temperature Application;

Important Notice: Container Surface Temperature Applications

When bonding EPS and XPS foam insulation, use above 40°F (4°C) and avoid cure and surface temperatures above 90°F (32°C). Surfaces must be clean, dry and free of frost, grease, dust and other contaminants. Pre-fit all materials and protect finished surfaces. If using cartridge format, cut nozzle at a 45° angle to desired bead size and puncture inner seal. Be very careful not to allow Loctite® PL® Premium to cure on a finished surface.

Cold Weather Tips:  

Interior Installation

Heating the interior of the container will not be sufficient for the adhesive to cure because the insulation panels will not allow heat to transfer to the container surface.  It is recommended to either move the container to a heated area or tent and heat the exterior until the adhesive has cured.

Exterior Installation

The interior of the container can be heated until the adhesive has cured.

Interior and Exterior Installation

Install the exterior panels first while heating the interior.  Allow adhesive to cure before installing interior insulation.

Overview / FeaturesTechnical Data / Directions

5. Safety Precautions;

Wear gloves. Cured adhesive on bare skin will not come off immediately with washing and will cause skin to darken. Cured adhesive and discoloration will come off in about 3 days.

6. Cleanup;

Clean tools and uncured adhesive residue immediately with mineral spirits in a well-ventilated area to the outdoors. Remove cured adhesive by carefully scraping with a sharp-edged tool.
