Melamine is used as an alternative to ply wood in the process of insulating containers. Lining and insulating provides warmth for containers that are used for working in, and the wipe clean surface of melamine makes it a popular choice for containers used in the catering and food preparation industry. It also provides a neat and professional looking finish for office conversions, and a hygienic, easy to maintain interior for changing rooms and toilet blocks. We offer two colours as standard - beige on white, or white on white.

Fitting melamine lining

The first step is to build our timber framework. We build this to fit snug within the corrugation, with the two sides supporting the roof, meaning we never pierce the skin of the container. The container is then insulated with rockwool, to retain heat, and we overlay with 8mm melamine panels and finish with white trim. These provide a hygienic washable surface for your container.

Please note: there is a surcharge over standard prices for lining for any additional container doors, apertures and for high cube containers. The internal height of the container will be reduced with melamine lining.

Melamine lining in container conversions

This lining is commonly used in our high-end conversions, from pop-up shops, cafe's and bars to the converted office. But its uses as a hygienic, wipe down surface also mean it's the perfect candidate for projects such as swimming pool changing rooms, a clubhouse with areas for changing rooms, an office and catering facilities, and for toilet blocks.
