Because a shipping container may be traveling through a variety of different temperatures, it is important to design your insulation plans around the potential climates. Say your modular container will be in a cold climate—it may be wise to consider the benefits of spray foam insulation, which can create a seamless vapor barrier against wetness and condensation. If your container will be traveling to a warmer area, you may want insulation for a cargo container to keep it cool on even the hottest days of the year. No matter your goal, there are a myriad of insulation options for your shipping container.
Commonly acknowledged as one of the most efficient forms of insulation, spray foam insulation can offer the highest insulation value. The spray foam is spread across the entire surface of the cargo container walls, leaving no openings between the insulation material and the wall of the container. Applied wet, this insulation expands into thick foam that will fill even the smallest cavities and crevices in the wall of your shipping container. Known as an air-sealing solution, spray foam insulation can help your shipping container avoid problems with condensation and moisture infiltration.
Made of tiny glass fibers, this form of insulation can be used to insulate shipping containers. During the process of installing fiberglass insulation, sections are cut and fit inside a wood framed interior, which may leave openings between the insulation and the container’s wall. However, it is possible to put a moisture barrier between the wall of the container and the insulation in order to keep condensation out. The team at IBP Houston installs both batt and blown-in fiberglass insulation depending on your needs.
Varying in width and length, the foam panels used in rigid foam insulation can be cut to fit the needs of your shipping container. The installation process involves either gluing the panels directly to the container’s walls or screwing the panels into the flat bar mounted to the walls of the container. This type of insulation can save you space, freeing up inches of sidewall and ceiling space.
