Unlike refrigerated containers, which have a power source and controlled temperature range, insulated containers rely on their insulation properties to maintain a steady temperature throughout. This is an advantage if your goods are being shipped a relatively short distance, when no power is available, or when a regular temperature is all that’s required rather than refrigeration. For instance, pre-cooled cargo from cold storage can be used with an insulated shipping container to maintain a cold chain very successfully on short trips, and many goods don’t even require cooling methods at all – the insulation of the container itself is enough to keep the goods in perfect condition. Insulated shipping containers are also increasingly being used for storage and accommodation as well.

Types of Insulated Shipping Containers Available

Container Solutions Labs ™ sell several types of insulated containers, including:

Non-Operational (NOR) Refrigerated Containers

These are decommissioned refrigerated containers, which means the powered cooling equipment is no longer operational, but all the heavy-duty insulation of a refrigerated container still exists.

Insulated Purpose-Built Shipping Containers

These are purpose-built insulated containers designed for goods that don’t need to be refrigerated, but do need a steady temperature. We can insulated a standard container with 50mm Bondor panelling to regulate the outside temperatures. We can also install a wall mounted air conditioner to make it more comfortable if you are using the container for an office for example.
