How To Insulate A Shipping Container or Metal Building without Framing
The equipment checklist includes:
If framing the container with wood, model the install methods of how to insulate a pole barn (retrofitting section of page).
Step 1 Put a glob of Super Metal Sealant on the base of the pin. Press the base of the perforated pins on to the sheeting. It's fine that the adhesive oozes through the holes of the base (you can smooth it out if you want). This part of the adhesive helps hold the anchor pin on to the metal. Space pins 1 per square foot. Allow 24 hour cure time. The cure time can vary depending on the temperature and humidity
Step 2 (optional) Add Spacers to the pins on the walls - While the pins are bonding to the metal, prep the foam board spacers. Cut 2" x 2" pieces of 3/4" or 1" foam board. They provide an air gap which optimizes the performance of the insulation. Push the square foam pieces all the way down the pin.
Step 3 Push the insulation on to the pin. Once it's through the pin, push the cap onto the pin and press it down to secure the insulation.
Step 4 Once the insulation is secured, snip the end of the pins. You may also want to apply tape over the cut tip of the pin to avoid someone getting cut.

I recently ordered and received Prodex insulation. I have installed it in my container. The product is fantastic! It was super easy to install and works great! It immediately reduced the temperature in the container. I furred the container out with 1x2s and simply stapled the Prodex over them. I then sheetrocked over the Prodex. It all worked out perfectly! I believe it is a superior product than the R-13 fiberglass I installed in the ceiling. I just wanted to extend my appreciation to the company for an outstanding product, immediate customer service and instant delivery.

I used this to insulate a CONEX shipping container. It was easy to install with your double stick tape & insulates well.Independent Reviews visit Site Jabber
