The floor of a shipping container is typically comprised of 1-1/8” thick marine plywood. In its original condition, the wood floor is suitable for most aftermarket applications. However, some aftermarket uses call for the floor to be customized. If your project calls for a custom floor, we’ve got you covered. We are able to install a steel overlay, vinyl flooring, rhino liner or remove the floor completely.
Installing steel sheet over the top of the existing wood floor is one of our more popular floor modifications. We typically utilize 1/8” or 1/4″ steel sheet. However, the thickness of the sheet all depends on the application. The sheets are continuously welded at the edges and the seams.
The vinyl floor is a solid sheet that is rolled out and glued directly to the container floor. The material is fire retardant and oil resistant. It is available in varying colors, thickness and textures. If you are looking for a durable easy to clean floor covering, this is a great option.
This Rhino Liner™ type coating is typically used as a bed liner in cargo vehicles and trucks. However, it is an excellent option for waterproofing or sealing the floor of your container. It is performs very well in extreme cold and hot climates. The material is typically polyurethane or polyurea and will not warp, crack, peel or split. When applied it provides a non-skid smooth surface and can be sprayed in various thicknesses to meet your requirements. Check out our video gallery to see what it looks like in a 20ft container.
