Off cuts can be used by butting the FOILBOARD firmly together and taping both sides. Adhesives and Silicone can be used however it is recommended you tape the edges of the FOILBOARD with FOILBOARD tape to avoid contact with the EPS Foam. Holes may be required at base of walls to allow condensation to escape between container walls and FOILBOARD.

Benefits of Container Insulation

Containers must be insulated to protect internal contents. Whatever you might store inside a container needs to be protected for any period of time. Containers are usually used as storage facilities for personal belongings, files and valuables. It is important that the container is well insulated to prevent moisture ingress, mould, poor thermal efficiency and limited air circulation.

How Does Container Insulation work?

Container insulation can protect the ceiling, walls and floor with thermal efficient sheets. These sheets are retrofitted inside the container to the ceiling, walls and floor to create a complete barrier to withstand the external elements.

How to Install Container Insulation?

To install container insulation, fix 28 mm battens (timber or steel) running vertically along the internal surface at 600 mm apart. Fix Foilboard sheets to the battens using recommended approach. Using Foilboard Tape (silver or green), tape all joints to create a moisture resistant barrier. Fix internal lining over Foilboard.

Where to Buy Container Insulation?

Container insulation can be purchased from insulation sheet specialists such as Foilboard. At Foilboard, we stock patented insulation products that have been designed to seal containers that are left out in the open for extended periods.

What is Container Insulation?

Container insulation helps protect containers when they are left out in the open for extended periods of time. Since containers are used to store possessions, the storage facility needs to be well insulated to ensure the contents are not damaged over time.

Why Choose Container Insulation?

Insulate the inside panels of a container to protect the contents from poor thermal efficiency and moisture ingress. Containers are not built to be thermally efficient and modifications are required to protect the contents from the variable temperature and climate conditions.
