Shipping Container Insulation

Shipping containers are becoming more popular and are being used for a variety of reasons, from simple storage spaces to garden rooms, bars, home offices, and even commercially as office space and retail units.

Corrugated walls and roof on a shipping container make it impossible to get a perfect seal with any other form of insulation.

Insulating a shipping container can be a daunting task, at Green Horizon Energy Solutions, we have a wealth of knowledge on how best to insulate your shipping container. Whether you are looking for simple condensation control for a storage unit or if you need to meet a specific U value for certain building regulations, we can advise what you will need.

Using closed cell spray foam insulation gives a seamless bond to the surface, the corrugated walls and roof on a shipping container make it impossible to get that seal with any other form of insulation.

HBS Spray foam insulation can help alleviate all of these concerns, and more, including soundproofing and thermal insulation, creating a more comfortable, healthier and energy-efficient environment.

Over the years we have insulated numerous shipping containers, with a variety of uses, our most recent project was 42 shipping containers we insulated in the heart of Manchester city centre, these containers are stacked 3 high and are to be used as office space, some are small single units others are cut and joined making one large office out of 3 shipping containers, all of these shipping containers had to meet a certain building regulation criteria.

Whatever your requirements for insulating a shipping container, we have the knowledge and experience to advise you on the best way to go about this.

Spray Foam Insulation FAQ's

Due to the nature of HBS products, the foam, once applied, creates an air seal within a property, helping to prevent heat loss. This will reduce the amount of heat needed to fill the building, in turn saving money year after year.

As HBS helps to reduce heat loss from a property, much less energy is needed to help keep a comfortable temperature throughout, thereby reducing a property’s carbon footprint on the environment.

Air leakage can be responsible for up to half of a property’s energy loss. The air seal created by applying HBS to the internal structure of a building means no gaps exist from which a draft can appear; this helps maintain a more consistent internal temperature, minimises heat loss and reduces waste, creating an efficient and comfortable living or working space.
