Shipping containers conversions are becoming popular for dwelling spaces. The issue with using shipping containers as a dwelling is that they develop condensation against the steel which can cause mould and rust. Spray Foam Insulation is the best solution for this problem as its closed cell structure prevent moisture from condensing on the steel.
Container Insulation Foam
Shipping Container Insulation faces unique problems that conventional buildings do not encounter. The main problem to be solved is condensation and corrosion on the steel surfaces. Our polyurethane spray foam insulation is the best solution to this issue by providing an air tight barrier between the steel and the wall cavity. This creates a drier and warmer container home that is not possible with conventional insulation materials, which allow water vapour to pass through them to condense on the steel. If conventional insulation (such as polystyrene panels or fibreglass batts) is used they still allow the warm moist air inside the container to contact the outer steel and condense, which can cause the home to become damp and mouldy and the steel to corrode internally.
Polyurethane Spray Foam is the optimum solution for this problem. It provides an air tight barrier between the steel and the wall cavity which prevents condensation from occurring. At NZ Application Service Ltd we are experts in the field of shipping container insulation. The image gallery showcases some recent projects NZAS has worked on.
