THERMAL INSULATION FOR INDUSTRIAL REFRIGERATION
The world needs more refrigerated warehouses insulation for refrigeration. The increased need for refrigerated space to warehouse perishable goods became evident during the first weeks of the COVID-19 pandemics. At that time, the current available refrigerated space struggled to handle thousands of tons of refrigerated food that restaurants and cafes could not use because of lockdowns.
In the last decades, the cold-chain has developed its logistics centers to supply supermarkets and restaurants. When the latter closed, the cold-chain struggled to divert food from restaurants to supermarkets. As a result, it led to the decision to increase the spaces for refrigerated food.
In early September, the Wall Street Journal published the article “Covid-19 Vaccine Race Turns Deep Freezers Into a Hot Commodity”. It highlights that the production and the distribution of the vaccine for the COVID-19 will require countries to increase their refrigerated space. Although the article refers especially to deep freezers, we expect a similar need for larger refrigerates structures. Once more, the article points out the importance of cold-chain in everyday life. Certainly, it’s among the few essential services of modern living. Refrigerating at ultra-low temperatures requires 200 or 240 mm thick, PIR, or PUR insulated panels. In addition, it needs refrigerated doors and special refrigerating equipment.
AIR-TIGHTNESS OF ULTRA-LOW TEMPERATURE REFRIGERATION ROOM
To ensure air-tightness, we recommend choosing our GLOBE WALL REFRIDRY ULTRA with a triple labyrinth joint. We use the triple labyrinth joint on our GLOBE WALL REFRIDRY ULTRA to ensure the best possible air-tightness. With the correct installation and proper sealing, we can guarantee the outcome will be outstanding.
FLOOR INSULATION AT ULTRA-LOW TEMPERATURE REFRIGERATION ROOM
Refrigerating at ultra-low temperature also requires perfect floor insulation, and we have the ideal solution for it. GLOBE GTE is a PIR insulation board, which scores B, S1 – D0 fire behavior. Moreover, GLOBE GTE features a double vapor barrier that will help you prevent the breakthrough of moisture.
The PIR core of GLOBE GTE offers a zero-hygroscopic feature, ensuring the insulation will stay dry during the years. Refrigerating to such ultra-low temperatures generates a tremendous negative pressure that will seriously risk the air-tightness of the cold-room joints. GLOBE PANELS relief valves will assure it won’t happen.
GLOBE PANELS always has the best solution for your cold-room, and we will deliver the necessary thermal insulation for industrial refrigeration anywhere you need it.
