Closed Cell Spray Foam – closed cell spray foam is the most efficient insulation. It will offer the highest insulation value (approximately R-7 per inch). The spray foam completely covers the surface of the corrugated shipping container walls. There are no gaps between the insulation and the container’s wall (as there are with fiberglass or polystyrene panels). There is much less risk of condensation or moisture developing with closed cell spray foam. There is no need to frame out the interior as the spray foam adheres directly to the sidewalls and ceiling of the storage container. It can be sprayed as thick as necessary to achieve The insulating value you require.
Any of these methods are a very effective way to insulate the interior of your shipping container or storage containers.
