However, cold store rooms can be customized and modified according to the requirements. One such modification of a cold room is by adding cold store panels for insulation.
So, what are cold store panels and how do they help in insulation?
The insulated cold store panels are formed by injecting polyurethane foam in between metal cladding at a very high density. These panels have monolithic construction and can maintain temperature and humidity inside the structure. These panels can be used for the walls, rooftop and even on the flooring. You can use these panels not only for the cold rooms, but also for refrigerated vehicles.
Here are the types of insulated panels used in the cold rooms
- Expanded Polystyrene Insulated Panels
- Polyurethane Insulated Panels
- Compressed Straw Core Insulated Panels
