Determining Installation Panel Systems in Coolrooms

13 July 2017

If a walk-in coolroom is an essential modular construct, then the installed panel system is the armoured envelope that defines the thermal characteristics of this insulated cooling space. The installation panel system in question is designed to assemble readily, seal reliably, and present a unified thermal barrier. Built from advanced materials, the panels employ smart coupling technology, such as the renowned cam-lock coupling system.

Installation Panel Systems: Locking Mechanisms 

Before advancing any further, just how do the modular panels create that steadfast seal? Basically, there are special locking systems that are built specifically for the job. They’re typically attached to the panels as toughened plastic blocks, with heavy gauge hooks and reinforced pins taking on the role of the dependable fasteners. They come together when the panels are aligned, lock in place, and use their heavy gauge stainless steel outlines to secure the assembling chambers’ many wall panels. Used in concert with a special angled key, the tool and wall locking mechanisms guarantee fast and secure modular assembly.

Cool and Professional Assembly Skills 

Whether the locking system requires a cam-wrench or a traditional screwdriver, the work still requires an expert construction service, an engineer and technical group who can build this framework with confidence. Perhaps we should be talking about competence as well as confidence, for the structurally stable module is hardly finished. Next, there are commodities fittings and plumbed pipes, plus their drainage channels to install. There’s a ceiling coupled to the walls now, and there’s an insulated floor. Next, the composite wall panels are installed. These panels are laminated with an extruded polymer, then they’re glued to durable metal skins. The installation panel system has taken on a layered architecture, with the modular panel system on the outside, the composite, metal-skinned insulation panels on the inside, and the open area chamber right in the centre. Inside that core, a few light fixtures, wire-mesh shelves, and an energy-efficient refrigeration unit complete the structure.

Tongue-in-groove panels, cam locking mechanisms, and gaskets form the structural backbone of a modular coolroom. Next, a layer of temperature resistant caulking increases the unit’s R-factor and produces an optimally sealed cooling space. When this sealed space is standing tall, composite insulation panels are fixed inside the enclosure while the door seal and electronic control system receive attention. Finally, the refrigeration housing and all of its fitting are installed, tested, and placed in an inactive but ready stage until the furnishings are carried inside. Properly inspected, the coolroom is ready to produce its frosty atmosphere.
