Details In cold stores the proper design of the floor system is critical to avoid the bending and cracking problems which can occur in inadequately designed low temperature floor systems. Floor designs must be able to withstand the high floor loadings present in low temperature facilities. The typical low temperature floor design has not changed for many years. The insulation is laid in multiple layers on a vapour retarder either over a sub-slab or directly over the soil. Reinforcement and slip sheets are positioned where necessary and the concrete for the wearing slab is poured directly onto the insulation. After the wearing slab has cured, it must be able to support the live and dead loads imposed by any moving equipment, storage racks and stored materials. As design loads increase, the insulation plays a more important role in providing support for the wearing slab. Thanks to an extremely high compressive strength-to-weight ratio, exceptional moisture resistance, low thermal conductivity and long-term performance of Dow Styrofoam HD-X extruded polystyrene (XPS) insulation, makes it the ideal solution for cold storefloor applications. When used in cold storefloor panels, Dow Styrofoam HD-X XPS supports heavy cargo loads and the dynamic loads of fork lift trucks. When used in walls it absorbs high dynamic loads, such as those caused by wind and vibration. When used in roof panels Dow Styrofoam HD-X will support high tensile loads from suspended items. The homogeneous closed-cell structure ensures that Dow Styrofoam HD-X retains its performance even when in permanent contact with moisture. This exceptionally stable material will retain its initial insulation performance and physical integrity in exposed conditions over the very long term. It is this unusual property that made possible the inverted warm roof concept, pioneered by Dow. Applications - Cold store floors Features - Extremely high compressive strength-to-weight ratio - Low thermal conductivity - Low susceptibility to rot, mould or fungal growth Standards - Green Star Compliant - CFC and HCFC Free - Zero ODP

Styrofoam XPS Deckmate Thermal Break Strips

Designed specifically to reduce the thermal loss on metal deck roof applications. Depending on construction method, in some metal deck roofs the insulation blanket can be compressed, which can reduce the thermal performance of the roof system. Styrofoam Deckmate Thermal Spacers on top of each purlin above the insulation blanket will ensure that sufficient room is allowed for the insulation blanket to recover its nominal thickness and that stated R values are achieved.
