Shipping Container Inside Corner Post

Why use the Corner Post Insert?

Using the corner post takes the guess work out of the corner. The corner post provides easy fastening with the built in corner stud. You no longer have to craft a custom solution to insulate the inside corner.

 How to install the End Wall Corner Inserts:

Three easy pieces

  Easy as 1-2-3

Container side walls can vary slightly in length. We call this weld seam drift. Always check for proper fit and drift and adjust the corner panel cut length layout accordingly. 

How to place a stud in the corner

The inside corners at the "nose" of the container where 2 different wall geometries collide can be a unique challenge. The corners should look like this when completed. Fill all open spaces/air gaps with spray foam as needed.

First cut out for the corner brace

First dry fit and make any cuts or adjustment before you apply any glue. Most containers will have corner diagonal braces their height will vary, you will have to cut the large end wall corner insert to fit.

Once cut and adjusted the large end wall insert that overlaps the back wall goes in first. Apply a 3/8" bead of adhesive at the overlapping lip and the portion of the insert that touches the sidewall.

The sidewall insert goes in next

Dry fit and make any cuts or adjustment before you apply any glue. Apply a 3/8" bead of adhesive when placing the sidewall insert into the corner.

Install the metal corner channel

The final step is to push the metal channel into the slotted groove providing a place for screw attachment of the finishes.

Use the cut panel reducing waste

Your cut pieces from one side of the container can be utilized on the other side of the wall to off set the panels and create a staggered vertical panel joint.

Container side walls can vary slightly in length. We call this weld seam drift. Always check for proper fit and if you have a drift adjust the corner panel cut length, then adjust the panel layout accordingly.
