Altering a shipping container to serve as a home is a unique trend in the homebuilding arena. Of course, an unfinished steel shipping container can present a variety of challenges. You’ll need a good plan for insulating, and InSoFast can help!
Why Your Container Home Needs Insulation
All homes need insulation for comfortable, energy efficient living, but a steel shipping container presents some unique challenges:
InSoFast closed-cell EPS foam insulation panels will turn your steel box into a comfortable living or working space. The panels control moisture, are simple to install, and take up a minimal amount of interior space.
Container Insulation Panels & InSerts
InSoFast CX Container Panels are designed for the side walls of most shipping containers and take the hassle out insulating and framing. Their thin profile takes up only two inches of interior space. One of the biggest benefits is that most installations can be completed by do-it-yourselfers with a utility knife, hand saw, glue and a caulk gun.
The 44” x 24” panels fit the width between the weld seams on the long side walls of the container and are set up for an 11-inch repeating pattern of corrugation. They are installed horizontally with the studs running vertically to allow the studs to adhere to the interior facing ribs of the container.
InSoFast InSerts for side walls, end walls, and ceiling are specifically shaped sleeves of EPS foam that are designed to close up the container’s corrugation air gaps. Once glued in place, the surfaces will be flush and ready for coverage in full InSoFast panels.
