With British weather being more unpredictable than ever before, humidity can be a pesky problem that, once you’ve got it, is difficult to shift. When storing your valuable possessions in a shipping container, humidity appearing on the walls is a very unbidden arrival.
The good news is, with the right levels of planning ahead, humidity in your shipping container need not be a hindrance. Here are some of Lion’s top tips for keeping your shipping container humidity-free this season:
Moisture absorbing desiccant
Moisture absorbing desiccants are a popular and cost-effective way to reduce in-container humidity, as their application requires little to no impact on the purpose or aesthetic of the shipping container externally.
Desiccants trap residual moisture in your container to create a dry environment in your unit, this ensures that your high value possessions are protected.

Top Quality Insulation
Insulating your shipping container properly drastically minimises the chances of humidity striking whilst your goods are in situ. A variety of options are available for interior container insulation at Lion Containers, depending on the nature of your primary use for the container.
It is best to install insulation as early as possible in your container’s life as it is a superb preventer of moisture and condensation, however does not necessarily solve existing humidity.
Good ventilation balances the temperature inside and outside of your shipping container, thus its installation goes a long way in preventing humidity. The installed ventilation withdraws warm, moisture-filled air from the unit, whilst allowing in fresh air from the exterior. At Lion we offer a variety of ventilation options – be sure to get in touch today and one of our modification experts will help you to determine the best ventilation option for you.
