In this article we will discuss thermal bridges in a cold room. Even more, how Nylon fasteners and PVC sanitary profiles help to reduce or to avoid thermal bridges in a cold room.
WHAT IS THE THERMAL BRIDGE?
The thermal bridge is a circumscribed area of the building envelope where there is a greater passage of thermal energy compared to other surrounding areas.
The most common consequence of a thermal bridge in the building envelope is the formation of condensation. In addition, it is also one of the most damaging elements for a cold room.
Usually, we consider that a cold room normally consists of:
- Walls of PUR or PIR insulating panels
- An insulated floor
- One or more cold room doors, either hinged or sliding
- A ceiling of insulating panels
In other words, these elements separate environments that have different temperatures and different humidity levels.
HOW NYLON FASTENERS AND PVC SANITARY PROFILES HELP TO REDUCE OR TO AVOID THERMAL BRIDGE IN COLD-ROOM?
There are elements that must pass through these layers of insulation: these elements bring these different temperatures into contact, generating a thermal bridge. As a result, it generates condensation and water drops and consequently ice formation inside the cold room.
We have selected 3 elements we propose an alternative that help to reduce the thermal bridge in a cold room:
- High quality nylon fasteners, which withstand loads without breaking, instead of steel fasteners.
- Our ceiling suspension profiles with special fasteners made of PVC coated steel, in which the PVC layer breaks the thermal bridge.
- Our high thickness “Smart” PVC profiles line for building cold rooms, which do not require passing fasteners. Why so? Because PVC profiles fit together and compress the panels so that they do not move, once the cold room is installed.
