Choosing a Portakabin Duplex building means you get all the benefits associated with our refurbished offer.

70% faster than a traditional building and meets building regulations

When you need comfortable, contemporary space quickly, a Duplex building can be ready up to 70% faster than a conventional building. Like all Portakabin modular buildings, Duplex solutions offer attractive, customisable space that meets all permanent building regulations. The difference is, they are fully-refurbished, pre-owned Portakabin buildings.

  1. Portakabin Quality

    • External walls are of a durable one-piece construction with high-performance, low-maintenance plastisol steel finishes.
    • The patented floor has a rigid galvanised steel frame and underdrawing, which offers a sturdy and robust feel.
    • The roof deck is of one-piece construction, impact resistant and covered with solar-reflective, profiled plastisol steel to reduce heat gain.
  2. Anti-vandal and energy efficient

    • Duplex buildings also offer protection against theft and vandalism, with a wide range of security options.
    • Walls, doors and roof are insulated with environmentally friendly CFC-free Envirofoam, a rigid polymer insulation material that is lightweight and yet enhances long-life structural strength and ensures an energy-efficient building.
