The demand for wood cladded containers has never been higher, with containers being sited in conservation areas or woodlands requiring stringent planning permission. Wood cladded containers can often provide the ideal solution to disguise your shipping container in plain sight.

Cladding options

We provide a range of wood cladding options on all sizes of shipping containers, from 10ft through to 45ft and every size in-between.

Option 1: Rustic

This cladding option is rough sawn clear treated cladding, applied either vertically or horizontally.

Option 2 Clean Cut

Our clean cut cladding is planed to give a nicer cosmetic appearance to our wood cladded containers. Also clear treated, it provides suitable protection from the elements.

Option 3 Shiplap

Shiplap cladding is seamless and clips together showing no container beneath at all apart from the bottom rail. Ideal for the perfect disguise.

Option 4 Siberian Larch

Our premium cladding was originally used for Camlan Garden Centre in Snowdonia, where strict planning requirements meant the container had to be clad in a timber which would blend in well with the natural surroundings. This has become a popular choice for similar conservation areas.

Optional extras for wood clad containers

We pride ourselves on being cladding experts for shipping containers. However, it’s not just wood cladded containers where we excel! We offer a range of optional extras on any container conversion, including ply lining, bi-folding or patio style doors, sloping roofs, vinyl flooring, windows and more.
