    Can you insulate a shipping container?

    Insulation is a key factor in keeping your home comfortable and reducing your energy bills.

    Helping warm homes to cool down on balmy summer afternoons and keeping the heat in the house during winter snows.

    But is it possible to invest in shipping container insulation to keep your home office or outdoor gym habitable?


    Is cargo container insulation possible?

    Put simply, yes!

    Shipping container insulation is a relatively simple way to make your extra living space much more pleasant no matter the temperature outside – making it easier for you to use the space all year around.

    But temperature control isn’t the only reason you should consider insulating your container conversion. Other benefits include:

    • Increasing energy efficiency
    • Reducing noise pollution
    • Stopping draughts
    • Preventing condensation

    As such, it is considered an essential step for container conversion companies, like Gap Containers, who regularly help homeowners expand their living space with a conversion.


    Can you retrofit container insulation?

    Sadly, it is not possible to fit shipping container insulation in existing conversions without taking the structure back to the metal walls.

    This can make it an inconvenient and messy task for homes with pre-existing container conversions. However, while time-consuming and chaotic, it is well worth doing if you can, especially if you are finding your extra space is unliveable in very hot or cold weather.

    If you are planning a container conversion, however, you have the perfect opportunity to add insulation and reap the benefits further down the line.

    Doing so means your cargo container conversion will always be temperate and comfortable and can be used in any season, at any time of day – allowing you and your family to make the most of your investment.


    Can I buy a pre-insulated shipping container?

    If you are pushed for time or the idea of DIY fills you with dread, there is another option.

    You can purchase a container that already has insulation or ask your container conversion company to add shipping container insulation as part of the process.

    Here at Gap Containers Ltd, we offer a range of container insulation options, including:

    • Ply-lined and insulated containers
    • OSB-lined and insulated containers
    • Grafo therm condensation- reducing coatings

    These insulation options help to keep your shipping container warm in winter, cool in summer, and keep damaging condensation out for decades to come.

    And the best part is, you don’t have to lift a finger!
