Vinyl Flooring in Containers

Vinyl flooring is a popular choice for container conversions, for both catering facilities and offices. With its neat and professional looking finish it's also waterproof, durable and easy to keep clean with a simple wipe over.

Laying vinyl flooring

Shipping container floors are made from plywood, laid over a steel chassis. Before laying vinyl we pin 6mm ply to the container floor to ensure an even, smooth finish. We overlay this with vinyl, cutting the sheets to size and shape, and gluing directly to the existing floor. We then weld rod strips to the floor and, using a special machine that melts the strips, we seal any separate pieces together for a neat, seamless finish.

Specifications and colours

The product we use is Polyflor XL, which ensures quality and high performance. The standard colour we offer is Flint Grey, although we can fit any colour shown on the chart opposite, subject to a premium. Features of Polyflor XL:

This is a 3mm thick rubber flooring designed to protect floor surfaces and provide additional grip for floor traffic. It also insulates the floor, giving you comfort as well as protection. Suitable for areas with medium pedestrian traffic it has a durability midway between vinyl flooring and a steel durbar floor. We recommend cobodot for workshops and catering conversions.

Before laying cobodot we pin 6mm ply to the container floor to ensure an even, smooth finish.
