Modular Or Container, Whats The Difference?
Modular units are slightly different from container units as they are normally made from a steel framework and ISO Wall panels. These panels are 2 pieces of steel which have an insulation material such as PU Foam / Rockwool / Styrofoam in the middle to form a “Sandwich” Panel.
Modular units are normally Cheaper than containers and are ideal for many installations. The main difference is normally the final finish, ISO Wall Panels have a smooth finish compared to the container ripple finish, also most Modular Units normally have the electrical conduits fitted onto the surface of the panel rather than hidden behind the wall.
The main use for Modular Units would be for Office Units, Toilet Units and other Commercial Units.
Modern Modular Buildings
Over the last few years the design of modular building has improved dramatically, many new building are made from modular panels with all electrics and other services hidden in the panels. These new designs allow modular units to be used for installation where a more attractive finish is also required, this includes modern shops and commercial units and even modular houses which can be transported and assembled on site within a short period of time.
