Container & Modular Units for Sale and Rent
KSS and Container Kings Thailand work together to manufacture, install and rent various container and modular buildings.
Modular Building Or Converted Container, What’s The Difference?
Modular units are slightly different from container units as they are normally made from a steel framework and ISO Sandwich Panel Walls. These wall panels are 2 pieces of steel which have an insulation material such as PS or PU Foam or Rockwool in the middle to form a “Sandwich” Panel.
Modular Units are also normally larger than a standard container. A typical size would be 6m x 3m or 12m x 3m. Modular Units can also be made wider than 3m and also joined together to make very large spaces.
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.
Modular Units can also be manufactured in a “Knock Down” format which means they can be transported to difficult locations and assembled on site.
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. Some of the well known companies such as Amazon Café, Burger King etc. all use modular units for their new premises.
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
Converted Shipping Containers
Shipping Containers are an ideal solution for low cost housing or storage, they are easy to transport and maneuver as well as in ideal green solution as they are a recycled item. Container Homes, also known as ISO Container Homes, can be created out of any type of shipping containers to make multiple units or single houses at relatively low prices compared to constructing a new building.
We specialise in converting Containers into a number of different applications from single houses to large multi container complexes. Containers can be linked together or stacked to create a whole range of varied layouts.
Containers can be converted to a number of uses such as

Why Shipping Container Housing is a Super-Hot Trend
Whether you’re looking for an intimate beachfront getaway, a compact urban abode or a larger, sprawling home on the open range, you may be able to find the perfect fit with shipping container housing. Once considered undesirable housing units for those who simply couldn’t afford the traditional brick and mortar option, storage container houses have become the hot new trend. Container homes can be arranged in almost any combination and can also incorporate swimming pools, saunas and games areas.
Containers can also be converted easily to swimming pools for above ground or in-ground use. Our pools come complete with all pumps, stairs and Jacuzzi areas to finish of any Container Home. Have a look at our gallery for even more ideas.
