Insulated panels provide solution to the numerous insulation problems occurring in light weight prefabrication. One of the common applications of the insulated panels is the building of cold rooms and refrigerated vehicle bodies. For this application, insulated panels find wide use around the world due to its characteristic to provide maximum thermal insulation. Over the last 48 years, TSSC has been at the forefront of this specialized industry manufacturing high quality panels to the satisfaction of its large customer base.
The harsh weather conditions in the Gulf region have been a driving force for the increasing demand for insulated panels in the region. Insulated panels have a monolithic sandwich construction which is formed as a result of injecting rigid polyurethane foam at high density between metal claddings.
TSSC offers its customers a wide range of cladding materials to choose, depending on their application requirements. TSSC manufactures insulated wall, ceiling and floor panels to customer specified sizes that are used in building cold rooms for chiller and freezer applications. The stateof- theart production facility spread across Sharjah and Dubai uses 15m (49.2ft) long press and manufactures panels in lengths of up to 15m (49.2ft).
Depending on the size and use of the cold room, cold rooms can be broadly classified as walk-in cold rooms and warehouse cold stores. Cold rooms are built by TSSC to maintain a temperature range of 15°C to –40°C.
Walk-in cold rooms are smaller in size compared to the large warehouse cold stores and are used primarily by the retail industry to store goods with fast shelf replenishment rate. Due to the small size of the rooms, the insulated floors are built strong enough only to allow the use of hand carts and not suitable for large power equipments such as forklifts. A few uses of walk-in cold rooms are in the super markets, hotels, restaurants etc.
Unlike walk-in cold rooms warehouse cold stores are very large sized stores used to store goods at very low temperatures for a longer period. These are built with strong reinforced insulated flooring that allows the use of power equipments for loading and unloading goods. In order to achieve working temperature requirements of 15°C to –40°C, these large cold stores are in most cases fitted with more than one refrigeration unit.
Rack power system is the advanced power system used by TSSC in which the refrigeration units are connected together in a racking arrangement. This system provides high energy efficiency compared to the use of ordinary split units. TSSC is the only specialized company in the region capable of installing this system.
For quick freezing and chilling applications, blast-freezers and blast-chillers are used where the temperature in the cold room drops to as low as -400C from the room temperature in a span of few hours. TSSC™ is a pioneer in the design, manufacture, supply and installation of these modules and are ideal for sudden freezing of medium sized fish and chicken.
