InSoFast insulation products offer the following benefits:
The closed-cell, injection-molded Expanded Polystyrene foam composing InSoFast insulation panels provide twice the strength as open-cell insulation technology. They are dense and strong and outperform competing products with similar R-value rankings due to both the performance of the individual pieces as well as the airtight nature of the systems produced.
Our products are perfect for all sorts of projects, including those that call for interior and exterior applications, as well as installation on any flat surface including walls, floors, and ceilings.
Shipping containers, being made of metal, have unique characteristics that require the protection of quality insulation. Condensation, noise, and uncontrolled temperatures can be easily remedied with InSoFast insulation products.
InSoFast CX container panels are made to align with the corrugation of most shipping containers. The panels are thin and follow a repetitive pattern of 11-inches. With a 44- by 24- inch panel design, installing the panels horizontally allows the embedded studs to line up against the interior corrugation for adhesion and a place of purchase for finishing products.
InSoFast InSerts fill the gaps of corrugation and require a layer of InSoFast interior insulation covering them.
The final option costs less but doesn’t facilitate running electric wiring or other services. The CX-LP LowPro Studs work with the InSerts and your choice of rigid foam board for a basic, but effective insulation system.
