Did you know that it’s actually more cost efficient for shipping companies to purchase new containers rather than transport empty ones back to their origin?
The UX panels are designed to be the most cost-effective solution for base-level code requirements. That’s great, but what if you need a solution that goes beyond base-level what if you are insulating a shipping container?
The summary of the pros and cons of shipping container buildings using rigid foam insulation and not spray foam.
We recently had some creative InSoFast customers use our UX 2.0 panels to insulate a Shipping Container Artist Community in Brooklyn, NY. https://thebrooklynbreeze.wordpress.com/2014/01/05/installing-insofast/
Installing the InSoFast horizontally with a welded nailer across the top of the side walls. You would not need a nailer on the floor because the drywall would catch the bottom stud of the InSoFast. If you are looking for maximum sq/ft on the interior of the container and want to keep the look of the shipping container on the exterior, this is the best product on the market for insulation. The R Value is the highest considering you are insulating a metal box.

Pros + Cons of insulating Shipping Container Buildings with InSoFast insulation panels of rigid foam.
InSoFast is a better way to achieve a net zero home by starting with a monolithic continuous insulation envelop.

Thermal Control Layer
The addition of InSoFast’s exterior rigid insulation can significantly improve the wall assembly thermal performance because it provides a continuous insulation layer that diminishes the impact of thermal bridges caused by framing.
Thermal bridging through framing components reduces envelope insulation performance by 15-20% in wood frame construction and by 40%-60% in metal frame construction
Continuous Insulation (Ci) is an insulation blanket around the exterior of the structure. Ci creates a thermal break between wall framing and the exterior conditions. Installing CI reduces energy loss caused by bridging. Additionally, InSoFast’s insulation on the exterior of wall reduces potential for moisture problems. InSoFast acts as a moisture barrier, so water that gets into the wall system is deflected or drained away. When insulation is placed on the exterior of the wall structure, the dew point is moved outward reducing the potential for condensation on the warm side of the wall.
InSoFast’s ci systems integrates the following key features: continuous insulation (ci), an air/moisture barrier, drainage, capillary breaks, and a variety of finish options to create a superior, sustainable wall cladding. This high-performing, insulation panel saves energy and returns your investment for years to come. InSoFast ci improves indoor comfort and air quality and lowering life-cycle costs.
