Shipping Container: CX44 Panels in the Corners

How to install CX44 panels in corners.

Start by cutting the CX44 Panels for the corners;

The cuts for the corners can be used on the other side of the wall.

The corners should look like this when completed. Fill all open spaces/air gaps with spray foam as needed.

Here we used pink foam to illustrate corner fill foam by others.

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. The end cuts and scrap can be trimmed to fit and fill changes in container geometry, glue the pieces back together.

Why we don't have a stud in the corner;

No stud is needed in the corners?

Or yes we do not have a stud in the inside corner. When building with a solid wall foam corner the finish material will already be supported. There is no need to panic. You can glue the finish material to the panel or glue a sheet metal angle for screw attachment.

Precaution: Do not expose the foam insulation or plastic studs of InSoFast panels to the flames, heat or sparks generated by welding, grinding or cutting on the steel container after panels have been installed. Cut out all openings in the container and complete any welding, cutting or grinding operations prior to installing InSoFast panels.
