Classic Rustic is our lowest cost option for cladding your container. Great for containers used for storage, as it does the job without any frills. If you're looking for something with a smooth edge, our Clean Cut Cladding would be the right fit for you, or for a seamless finish, why not look at our Shiplap Cladding?

Cladding the container

We fix timber batons using 38mm long galvanised nails through the container wall and seal around to prevent leaks. The cladding is then nailed onto the batons. As a more expensive option, we can weld 25mm x 25mm box section onto the container to create a frame in which to screw the cladding.


  • Tanalised White Spruce

  • Wood width - 6 inches

  • Recommended Paint colour: RAL8008 Olive Brown

Additional costs apply to the following:
  • Painting

  • Cladding around doors and windows

  • Sloping Roof

  • High cube containers

  • Attaching cladding using welded box section frame instead of nails and batons
