Insulated Panels: An Energy Efficient Solution for Cold Storages

December 19, 2017

“Due to various advantages associated with this new trend of energy efficient Roofing & Cladding system more innovations are anticipated in future and there will be an immense move of Industry in due course of time”– Mr. Gaurav Jindal, Director, Jindal Mectec (P) Ltd.

Insulation is the widely used and cost-effective solution to make buildings more energy efficient. These Insulated panels, following Green construction practices and maintain the optimum temperature inside the building. In addition, Insulation also reduces the condensation inside the building. These Insulated panels are multi-layered structure and each component is having different mechanical and chemical properties and provide ultimate solution to control the temperature inside the building with heat reflection, anti-radiation and moisture barrier functions. It is considered as ideal solution for Cold storages, Clean Rooms, Research centres, PEB buildings etc. 

As compare to the conventional roofing and cladding system, sandwich panels are much eco-friendlier, as they are in-house fabricated and easily transported & installed at site.

Major portion of Puf panels are utilized in Food and Beverage industry mainly into cold storages. JMPL has expertise in delivering Puf panels for Multi-functional, Multicommodity and Multi-purpose cold storages. These Multi-Functional Cold storages are having facility to maintain the temperature of the products right from harvesting, till the product reaches the consumer. The basic structure is made up of Steel and outer skin of Roofing and Cladding consist of PUR panels of variable thickness.

JMPL is specialised to design, supply and execution of various cold chain projects including:

  1. Temperature controlled cold storages
  2. Pre- Cooling system
  3. Refrigerated Transport system/Reefer trucks
  4. Retail outlets
  5. Cold Room and Research centres
  6. Slaughter house and many more.

These Multi-Functional Cold storage projects are having facility of maintaining the temperature of the products right from harvesting, till the product reaches the consumer. The basic structure is made up of Steel and outer skin of Roofing and Cladding consist of PUF/PIR and Rockwool panels of variable thickness.

These cold storage projects are designed in accordance with the steel design with consideration of Live load, Dead load, Collateral loads etc.

Apart from cold storages, there has been commendable progress seen in the international scene of cold chain segment. Today in the developed countries, majority of the cold chain products are transported through reefer vehicles only. However, recently In India also these reefer route has picked up in an impressive way.

Reefer Trucks demand has been increased since the growth has been seen in the food service industry and food process sector. Increasing demand of ready to eat/cook, Dairy products and pharma items are enhancing the demand of these reefer trucks. These reefer vehicles maintain sustained temperature control all through the supply chain and ensures the product reaches to the consumer in fresh factory produced condition.

‚ÄčJMPL’s sandwich wall panels support green building construction and can be implemented to support the energy efficient, Industrial and Infrastructural developments. These panels are also Health efficient, Cost efficient, Leak Proof, enable faster installation and satisfy all aesthetic challenges and requirements as per customer needs. Due to various advantages associated with this new trend of energy efficient Roofing & Cladding system more innovations are anticipated in future and there will be an immense move of Industry in due course of time.

General features of Insulated sandwich panels are: –

  1. Improved Thermal and Acoustic Insulation.
  2. Used as a structural insulation panel eliminating the need to masonry construction.
  3. Closed cellular structure -inherently water resistant.
  4. Available in any length depending on transport logistics.
  5. Energy Saving
  6. External and Internal facing is the best effective vapor barrier and can be washed and disinfected.
  7. All weather proof and long life.
  8. Self-extinguishing property avoids spread of flame.
  9. Resistant to corrosion, termites, physical impact and fungus.
  10. CFC Free and zero ozone depletion property.
