We now supply DIY insulation kits for shipping containers. This system offers easy self-fit with the same performance as 55mm of polystyrene yet is only 4mm thick!
These competitively priced kits provide excellent condensation prevention as well as excellent thermal insulation for a fraction of the cost of fitting insulation and ply-lining. It can be fitted in just 30-mins (2-people required) for a 20ft container. No special tools are required, all you really need is a broom to push the sticky backing tape against the container wall/ceiling.
The insulation is supplied in pre-cut rolls ready to apply. Simply get one person to hold one end of a panel in place, remove the thermaseal tape from the back (industrial strength sticky backed plastic in very basic terms) and use a broom to push the foil up against the container roof and walls on the opposite side to the tape. The product provides an excellent thermal barrier that slows down the rate at which the air within the container cools. And it’s this slowing down of the cooling process that prevents the build-up of condensation.
You should ensure the inside walls and roof of the shipping container and clean and free of any dust or dirt that can come off before sticking the insulation panel to the surface. This is as important with one trip (new) containers as it is for used or refurbished containers.
This is an ideal and cost effective solution for containers and especially for anyone who already has a container and is experiencing problems with condensation or now wants to add insulation to their containers.
