External walls are of a durable one-piece construction with high-performance, low-maintenance plastisol-coated galvanised steel cladding to offer protection against fire, extreme weather and accidental damage. Internally, the walls are of vinyl-faced plasterboard, providing a wipe-clean finish.
The floor has a rigid galvanised steel frame and underfloor thermal insulation of foil-faced rigid polymer slabs, which offers a sturdy and robust feel and also prevents infestation. The suspended floor is completely integrated into the structure of the building. A variety of floor coverings are available, depending on the purpose of the building, including hard-wearing vinyl, carpeting or chequerplate*.
Outstanding insulation is provided by the construction of the roof. The roof deck is of one-piece construction and is impact resistant. It is covered with solar-reflective, profiled plastisol-coated galvanised steel to reduce heat gain. Internally, the polyester-coated galvanised steel ceiling is designed to prevent condensation problems and has a low-maintenance finish.
Doors and windows
Steel-faced doors have an insulating core that minimises heat loss. The anodised aluminium frame also incorporates draughtproof weather seals. The windows have PVC-U frames and are double glazed with low energy glass for optimum thermal performance. Draught and condensation problems are minimised by effective weather seals and the low thermal conductivity of the window frame and glazing materials. Windows in critical locations are glazed with toughened safety glass as standard with a variety of other glazing available as an option.* Titan buildings offer protection against theft and vandalism, with a wide range of security options.
Titan buildings can be linked to form larger complexes or stacked to form two-storey buildings. This flexibility can produce an open plan space or individual offices through the use of partition walls, vision panels and doors.
Titan buildings can be sited on simple pad foundations or level hard-standing capable of taking the total weight of the structure and the imposed loads. Portakabin staff will provide advice on the foundation loads and positions for single and two-storey buildings.
Peace of mind is guaranteed by the high levels of all-round performance achieved by the Titan building series. It has been independently assessed by the British Board of Agrement (BBA) and awarded a BBA certificate confirming that it meets the requirements of The Building Regulations (England and Wales), The Building Standards (Scotland) Regulations and other permanent building standards and codes of practice. The Titan building series has been designed and manufactured in the UK under a Quality Management System meeting the requirements of ISO 9001. In addition, Portakabin also offers a 5-year product and a 30-year structural warranty on all new Titan buildings*.

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.
Elemental U-values (W/m2K) External walls - Short walls 0.34, Long walls 0.32, Floor 0.25, Roof 0.25.
Fire-engineered construction ensures safe fire performance. Non-combustible materials are used for all external cladding and internal lining of walls and ceilings, minimising the potential fire load. Walls and ceilings have Class O surfaces, roof decks have an FAA rating. The walls (from inside) have a one hour fire resistance and the combined roof and floor assembly (from underside, two-storey buildings) have a half hour fire resistance and the underfloor insulation slabs have a Class 1 surface spread of flame rating.
A variety of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems can be provided to meet comfort requirements.
Transport and handling
Titan buildings are transported by lorry. Crane handling is facilitated by integral lifting points. Portakabin staff will provide full advice on the procedure.
