INTRODUCTION: PVC SANITARY PROFILES
We’ll start this article by exploring what PVC Sanitary Profiles are, and why they are important. Then, we’ll explain why to use PVC profiles in the cold room and we’ll take a closer look at the benefits of the usage of PVC profiles in industrial spaces.
WHAT ARE PVC SANITARY PROFILES?
Polyvinyl chloride, abbreviated PVC, is a synthetic plastic polymer, that is extruded to become PVC Sanitary Profiles (called also PVC Hygienic Profiles). Used in refrigeration with the main purpose to protect and preserve cold rooms and panels by preventing of accumulation of dirt and bacteria in the industrial spaces, particularly in the corners, allowing easy cleaning of the walls and the floor. Ideal for commercial and industrial cold-rooms.
WHY USE PVC PROFILES WHEN INSTALLING INSULATED METAL PANELS?
Because, first of all, PVC sanitary profiles are quicker to install on an insulated sandwich panel than a steel flashing. You won’t need any sealant to make them adhere, as they have a flexible lip that adapts its shape to the ribbed surface of a metal sandwich panel.
Second, it will be quicker to clean a cold-room, as you won’t need to clean the corners, which takes time, and you will save water, detergent, and, most important, time.
The saving here is interesting, due to the fact that water is becoming a scarce resource in many countries.
Third, what happens when a metal flashing gets scratched? Moist will turn any scratch into a source of rust, which will quickly corrode the steel. PVC sanitary profiles simply can’t rust.
Touch-up a scratched steel plate, can be quite expensive.
Last but not least, it protects the panels from small hits made by moving boxes around.
Acting as a protective bumper is indeed a very interesting function of PVC sanitary profiles, but I’ll write about this in a different article.
In this article, we’ve discussed PVC Sanitary Profiles. We’ve seen that it’s easy to benefit from the usage of PVC profiles in industrial spaces. Finally, we’ve explained why to use PVC profiles in the cold room and why PVC sanitary profiles have a key task in a cold room made of metal sandwich panels.
