Do you have a vision of repurposing a shipping container into a home? If so, finding the right insulation material will be at the top of your to-do list. InSoFast Expanded Polystyrene foam insulation panels are perfect for your project. They’re user-friendly, highly effective, and impressively versatile.
Homeowners and professionals choose InSoFast insulation panels because of how easy they are to install as well as how well they work. In addition to shipping containers, our products will insulate older home interiors, new constructions, basement finishing projects, home exteriors, and any other flat surface in need of insulation. They work as a system, creating an insulation wall, and each panel can be quickly modified to complete the unit.
Insulation Is a Significant Part of Shipping Container Transformation
While insulation is a common part of home-building, it’s of particular importance to shipping container projects. Shipping containers, being made of metal, face issues involved with conductivity including the following:
Condensation happens when the cooled metal of the shipping container and warmed air meet. Moisture forms that can rot wood, ruin fiberglass insulation, and corrode the metal itself. InSoFast insulation prevents the climate-controlled air from reaching the metal.
The metal of a shipping container also promotes extremes of temperatures. This fact means that in the winter, temperatures are unbearably cold, and during summer, the interior of the box will be suffocatingly hot. Our insulation will mitigate this problem by allowing efficient and effective climate-control solutions.
The amplified noise of a shipping container transformation is fairly understandable, as anyone who’s ever banged pots and pans while putting away dishes is aware. InSoFast insulation is an excellent sound-proofing solution.
The Expanded Polystyrene foam used in InSoFast insulation products is closed-cell and injection-molded into the perfect design for easy application and enhanced functioning. The foam is twice as strong as open-cell insulation products and can handle heavier loads. The panels are non-porous as well, further enhancing the energy efficiency of the products.
InSoFast CX 44 shipping container panels fit along the side walls of containers in a horizontal fashion. The panels are only 2” thick, so they take up less of the space within the container. InSerts are made for the end wall, ceiling, and side wall portions of the shipping container and fit perfectly within the empty spaces created by corrugation.
