Custom Design

Whilst many clients know exactly what they want, sometimes expert knowledge input is required so expensive repairs or modifications can be avoided. Apart from the obvious physical size, not all coolrooms and freezers are the same as refrigeration, humidity, location, racking and shelving, duty cycle etc all play a part in combining to finalize the specification in order to obtain a relevant quotation.

Advantages
  • High strength to weight ratio means significant savings by minimising steel framework and load bearing foundations.
  • The light weight of the panel means easier handling, eliminating the need for expensive lifting equipment.
  • The prefinished skins create savings on the costs of follow up trades and virtually eliminate on going maintenance costs.
  • Excellent thermal qualities of the panel help reduce the consumption of power thus providing savings with operational costs and energy resources.
  • Near perfect vapour barrier.

The Panel System

Originally designed for use in areas requiring strict temperature control our panel system is now ideally suited to many industrial and commercial applications. Panels are structural laminates manufactured in a continuous process with two skins, normally steel or aluminum, permanently laminated to a core of expanded polystyrene insulation. Once bonded the three layers work as a single entity with an inherent strength far beyond that which its weight would suggest.

Overall the system is a blend of three very important features, high strength, energy saving insulation and flexibility in the design and construction stages. Construction methods utilising our panel system are well proven and offer an efficient and cost effective building system.

The panels used to construct coolrooms, freezers, annexes, packing rooms or trafficable ceilings are generally 1200mm wide and many areas are sized using this (or half) increment e.g. 1200, 2400,3600,4200.

The thickness of panels is usually dictated by temperature, span limitations and notional duties. Thicknesses normally used are 50mm, 75mm, 100mm, 150mm and 200mm although some other sizes are available.

The aluminum sections specific to our industry are available in mill finish, powder coated or natural anodized. Many are kept ex stock in our warehouse.
