The ceiling of the shipping container is insulated with ceiling inserts and the UX 2.0 or EX 2.5 standard flat panel. The panels are 48″ x 24″.
The ceiling inserts will need to be trimmed to fit the rounded ends of the corrugation. Use a long snap off blade utility knife with a sawing motion.
Run a bead of PL Premium 3x adhesive along the length of the insert and press into the corrugated space of the shipping container’s ceiling.
You can use duct tape to hold the inserts in place until the adhesive has set or until you are ready to install the InSoFast panels. Position any duct tape so that it doesn’t interfere with the stud bonding to the shipping container rib.
We recommend installing panels with the embedded studs running perpendicular to a shipping containers corrugated rib. The goal is to provide as much contact between the studs and steel in order to maximize the holding power of the studs.
Add a bead of PL Premium 3x along the side of the corner of the container where the first row of panels are placed.
On the back of the panel, run a 3/8″ bead of adhesive along dove-tailed ribbing of each stud.
Install the wall panels before the ceiling panels. This allows the ceiling panels to sit on top of the wall panels around the perimeter.
The running bond pattern in not required on the ceiling.
Brace firmly until all adhesives has cured. The ceiling panels can be shimmed into place along the edges on top of the wall panels by using 1x material or scrap foam. Before shimming, make sure that the side wall panel’s adhesive is set.
Remove the shims, if used, and seal the area between the ceiling and wall panels with spray foam.
