Seamless Shiplap is our most professional finish for cladding, which is smooth and leaves no gaps between each section of wood, covering the entire container. We also offer two alternative options for our cladding: Rustic Cladding and Clean Cut 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, please speak to our Sales team for additional costs.


  • Pine, treated and planed

  • Wood width - 130mm

  • Recommended Paint colour (for top and bottom rail): 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
