CX LowPro Insulated Studs

CX LowPro Interior and Exterior Applications!

CX LowPro a superior engineered solution for insulating containers. The CX-LP studs is ideally suited for intermodal container conversions. CX-LP is a no compromise, one step insulated stud that takes the complexity out of shipping containers retrofits. The adhesively applied CX-LP eliminates the hundreds of holes associated with shipping container or sea can modifications. Insulating a shipping container is a balancing act between space, comfort, energy efficiency, and humidity control, LowPro gives you that control. 

CX LowPro Insulated Studs

The CX LowPro is a versatile thin profile insulation a for shipping container construction. Combining all the best features of continuous insulation and framing itis ready for finishing. Eliminating parts, pieces and guess work.

Export Friendly

CX LowPro Insulated Studs, (CX-LP) is available for export. Like oranges made into orange juice, we concentrated the best attributes of our insulated panels into a cost competitive exportable insulated stud. The InSoFast panels, comprised of 98% air; they are bulky and expensive to ship. Typically, an overseas container will hold enough insulation panels to fabricate 4-5 shipping containers.


InSoFast can pack a shipping container with enough CX-LP studs to do 40-50 container conversions reducing the cost of freight. The CX-LP concentrates the value by reducing the air shipped by 10-fold.

One box of the CX-LP 46 Insulated studs will do 92 lineal feet of framing.

One box of the CX-LP 15 Insulated studs will do 30 lineal feet of framing.


LowPro Insulated Studs

The high-strength co-polymer plastic studs on 11 or 22-inches centers provide a positive attachment stud for finishing the container. The ribbed dovetails surface provides for adhesive applications against the metal surfaces.

  • The CX LowPro provides a double thermal disconnect
  • Uninterrupted continuous insulation (CI)
    • InSoFast goes beyond just “CI”. The fastener that attaches the finishes does not penetrate the steel reducing thermal shorts to near zero.
    • Fastening the exterior cladding does not penetrate the weather resistant barrier keeping your container secure and dry.
  • CX LowPro continuous insulation is the best choice for continuous-continuous insulation.
  • Eliminates thermal leaks and prevents water vapor from reaching the container's steel walls.

Special construction notes and links:

Service temperature of Expanded Polystyrene and hot southern climates. In hot climates avoid darker colored shipping containers.  We recommended that you paint your container a lighter color with a reflecting paint. Darker colored containers the heat could build up beyond the maximum allowable service temperature of the insulation.
