    Container Painting


    Shipping Container Painting

    GAP Containers offer highly competitive container painting that doesn’t compromise on quality, to breathe new life into shipping containers and storage containers of all ages.

    Why choose shipping container paint?

    Shipping containers can be painted in a range of colours for a range of reasons, including:

    • To help the shipping container last longer

    Painting the shipping container imbibes it with extra strength and helps protect them from harsh weather during transit.

    As metal structures, shipping containers are subject to slow corrosion, which container painting also helps stop.

    • Add company branding

    People can choose shipping container paint to add company branding or colours to the structure.

    This may be to advertise their brand during travel, increase brand awareness, or just because they would like company assets to match.

    • Make finding your shipping container easier

    At ports, the process of container collection can be time-consuming – thanks to the sheer number of containers being loaded and unloaded.

    A painted shipping container, specifically if in your brand or company colours, can be much easier to spot – making collection a less timely process.

    • To denote contents

    Sometimes the painting of shipping containers is to help easily identify their contents.

    Generally speaking, however, shipping containers are often painted in line with the following content guide:

    – White – Refrigerated perishables

    – Maroon or brown – Container leasing companies

    – Any other colour – Company branding

    Container painting in RAL colours

    When you choose container painting from GAP Containers, you have the choice of a wide selection of colours – the most popular of which are usually green or blue.

    Gap Containers Ltd offer shipping container paint in every RAL colour and can paint any size container of your choice, from a 10ft container to a 40ft shipping container.

    We also offer bespoke variations of colours and branding, so reach out for a quote today by calling 0870 240 9405.

    Top tip for painting your container:

    Painted shipping containers in dark colours tend to age better, but it is important to remember that black can absorb larger amounts of heat – so this would be a poor colour choice for contents that need to be kept cool.

    This is why refrigerated shipping containers, or reefers, are painted white.
