Cold Storage Coolroom floor insulation

Cold storage is one of the most extreme environments insulation can be exposed to. There is extreme cold, massive amounts of moisture from condensation,  plus floor insulation has to cope with extreme pressure from vehicles and stored products.

Foamular Extruded Polystyrene Insulation has been used extensively in cold storage insulation, from small supermarket cool rooms to huge commercial storage facilities, like the 28,000m² Rand Cold Storage Distribution Centre. When used in cold storage applications, Foamular routinely outperforms most other insulation products in maintaining insulation performance and supporting the imposed load.

"Achieve Increasing Levels Of Energy Efficiency And Reduce Environmental Impacts"

Extruded Polystyrene comes in a variety of compressive strengths to suit almost every job. High compressive strength is essential for floor insulation because it helps minimise deflection, reducing strain on the concrete slab and limits compressive creep.

Foamular is closed cell insulation, limiting its water absorption potential. Cold storage applications have high moisture content from condensation, which can sometimes freeze, causing huge problems for most insulation. Foamular maintains its high thermal properties even under these extreme pressures, providing long-term thermal performance.
