Shipping containers are inherently built to withstand tough conditions at sea, where they need to be incredibly robust, weather resistant and secure for weeks, months and even years as they make their numerous voyages transporting goods around the world. This strength makes them perfect for a wide range of applications once their ocean-faring life is over, such as portable cabins, site offices and meeting rooms, workshops and secure storage units. In all of these cases and more, these cabins need to be tough, but plastisol cabins bring a whole extra level of protection, durability and aesthetic appeal.

One of the very few concerns people have about using shipping containers as buildings is their industrial look, which is why we’re pleased to be able to offer plastisol portable buildings. Plastisol is a flexible coating that can be applied to shipping containers to give them a much more professional and inviting appearance, as well as providing an extra layer of protection from the elements. We make both new and refurbished plastisol cabins, helping to make your new facilities look more permanent and appealing.

What is Plastisol?

Plastisol is a versatile type of plastic coating known for its exceptional durability and weather-resistant qualities. Made from PVC or other types of polymer particles suspended in a liquid plasticiser, plastisol remains elastic and flexible, adapting to a variety of environmental conditions. This adaptability makes plastisol cabins not just visually appealing, but also a robust shield against the elements, effectively weatherproofing and protecting against rust.

Beyond aesthetics, plastisol’s impact resistance, chemical resistance and electrical insulation properties are exemplary, thereby enhancing the safety and extending the lifespan of your plastisol portable buildings. Additionally, it boasts superior vibration damping and noise reduction capabilities, ensuring a quieter and more comfortable space – a particularly valuable feature for busy construction sites and high-noise areas.

Our Maintenance Tips

One of the best things about plastisol is how low maintenance it is. However, many of our satisfied clients are rightly proud of their new plastisol cabins and ask us what they can do to prolong their lifespan. So we’ve put together these simple tips that will help you preserve your cabin’s functionality and appearance, ensuring it continues to serve your needs effectively.

Inspect for Damage:

Regularly examine your cabin for any signs of wear, such as dents, scratches or chipped coating. Promptly addressing these minor issues can prevent more serious damage over time.

Clean Plastisol Regularly:

Keep the exterior of your cabin pristine by cleaning the plastisol surface with mild soap and water. Avoid abrasive materials and harsh chemicals to maintain the integrity and lustre of the coating.

Check the Gutters:

Ensure the gutters are free from leaves and debris to prevent water damage. A clear drainage system protects the cabin from potential moisture issues.

Check Seals and Joints:

Inspect the seals and joints annually and replace weather stripping as needed. For guidance on this, ModCon’s experts are ready to advise on the best practices and materials.


Maintain good air quality by keeping windows clean and replacing air filters regularly, where applicable. This not only preserves the cabin’s environment but also its structural integrity.

Clean the Interior:

Tidy the cabin’s interior with regular vacuuming or sweeping. Use a damp cloth to wipe surfaces and remove dust, helping to prevent buildup and preserve indoor air quality.

Regular Inspections:

Schedule inspections to catch any potential issues early. This proactive approach can save time and money, ensuring minor problems don’t turn into costly repairs.


Great experience with this company. Alan was really helpful from start to finish and was quick to respond to our queries. Already recommended them to other construction sites. Thanks, Alan!
I can’t recommend ModCon highly enough. We had two new toilet and shower blocks delivered on Monday and have already ordered our smoking shelters with them because they’re so good. Everything arrived as promised and ready for use.
We got our new office units through ModCon and couldn’t be happier with the results. They look great and the guys from ModCon went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. They’re really friendly and easy to talk to as well.

After assembly, we then proceed to install all your ancillary items, including lighting and other electrics, and will ensure you have access to clean running water and safe wastewater disposal. Our expert fitters can also add custom shelving, sinks and other items upon request. For more insights into our modular construction process, please contact us.
