Container Conversion Insulation

Making the most of the internal space is of paramount importance when converting confined spaces such as shipping containers. Arguably the most important thing to do when converting a shipping container is to deal with the risk of interstitial condensation. Low-E Insulation reduces the risk of interstitial condensation while increasing thermal performance in less occupied space.

Stops Draughts

Increases Efficiency

Occupies Less Space

Mould and Fungi Resistant

Indoor Air Quality Approved

Creating a low ‘E’ space in a confined container is the easiest and most efficient way to boost the performance. Reducing condensation in a shipping container home is essential for the longevity of the structure, if water starts to collect the metal will rust over time. Low-E Insulation can reduce this risk while also reducing the wall thickness adding valuable inches of floor space.

“The Spas heat up much quicker with the Low-E installed and we’ve also noticed a drop in energy consumption while they’re running. It’s a great product. We are now including it as part of the patented design of our tubs”

G Richards, VA, USA

“Installing the blind on a single glazed unit resulted in a reduction in heat loss of 54% across the window. That’s just as good as double glazing”

P Baker, Glasgow Caledonian University, Scotland

“We’ve installed Low-E Insulated strip curtains in a number of McDonalds and Burger King restaurants, as well as a number of off-licences and supermarkets chains. All our customers have been extremely happy with the product. There is no ‘bagging’ in the bottom of the curtains, and they last much longer than the previous product we […]

“Ours is a very specialist application for storing some very expensive items. We have been looking for something just like Low-E Insulation for many years. We didn’t think it existed but I’m very glad we found it. It’s fantastic!”

D Davidson, Edinburgh, Scotland

“We need to keep the enclosures cool in the Dubai sun while our equipment it is not running. The enclosures that we install the Low-E into have been up and running for a while now and are all performing well. We’ve had no complaints. We are now installing more of them in Mozambique and Hong […]

“We make tents for a lot of different applications and we have to meet very strict standards. Micro-E Insulation is Fire Rated for use in tents, flexible, lightweight and easy to work with. We can run it straight through our sewing machines.”

Grant H, Yorkshire, UK

“Are Pods are installed along the coast and up in the mountains. We tried using a few different insulation products, but Low-E has been by far the best. We’ve no issues with moisture, corrosion or nesting. There’s no draught in the Pods are they’re easy to heat.”

Thomas E, Ireland

“Mark was able to help us with the design and to adequately addressed the condensation risk. That was our biggest concern, but the Local Authority were very happy with what we were doing. The Low-E Insulation was extremely easy to install.”

Matt P, Gloucestershire, UK

“The install was a lot easier than we thought it would be. I think we are going to be one of the few manufacturers that have adequately addressed the condensation risk. Local Authority seem extremely happy too.”

Nathan W, Northampton, UK

“Some of our buildings are small. Using Low-E Insulation allows us to keep the wall profiles very narrow and maximise the internal floor space. We’re delighted with it.”

P Halton, Kildare, Ireland

“When the M3 Fleet Services burnt down in 2016 and a temporary structure was needed and needed quickly. We used Low-E Insulation throughout the roof of 30,000 sq ft building. It was extremely quick as easy to work with. We had it sewn together and covered it with a dropped fabric ceiling.”

June S, Oxfordshire, UK

“Installing the Low-E Insulation has made a massive difference. The air-con doesn’t run for nearly as long as it used to and more importantly, we don’t get condensation forming on the ducting, or dipping on our guests.”

C Philip, R&B Restaurants, UK

“We have estimated that install Low-E on the back of our ceiling titles has given us energy savings of between 10-25%. It has certainly made the office a lot more comfortable.”

Nicola B, Dublin, Ireland

“Insulating our warehouse has made such a difference, from walking into the building we can now have it up to working temperature in approximately 20 minutes. It has been much better for the gymnasts during the winter months this year, no need to wear their bobble hats and gloves.”

K Ward, Boston Gymnastics, UK

“Designing a yoga studio is a lot more complex than a normal building. Studios need to come up to temperature quickly and deal with very high levels of moisture. Insulation is the most important part of the design. We have over seen the designed and construction of dozens of Hot Yoga Studios and we always […]

“We’ve installed Low-E on the walls and roof. It’s made a huge difference. The chillers are running a lot less and our energy consumption is around 20% lower than expected. The ice is in better condition too. We’re getting more people out for longer periods of time”

Daniel N, Blackpool, UK

“We’ve installed the Low-E Insulation throughout our dairy sheds and since then our production is up. It’s hard to know for certain but I believe it is down to the cooler temperatures in the sheds. Happy cows and all of that stuff!”

Michael F, Ireland

“It made a huge difference to the distribution centre. It’s so much easier to keep temperature controlled now and the lighting consumption has been reduced by about 20%.”

Dave W, Walmart Distribution Centre
