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:

  • Designed for the commercial environment

  • Flexible PVC sheet in 1.5mm-2mm thick

  • Slip resistant

  • Duotone marbleised effect

Popular container conversions with vinyl flooring

We lay vinyl flooring as part of our set package of extras and modications in both our shipping container offices and shipping container catering units.
