Dubai, UAE, 27 January 2019: “Usually, cold stores are built out of steel structures, the external roof is panelised and then the contractor comes in and works on the internal panels,” said CEM Sungar, Marketing Manager, Kingspan Insulated Panels, while elaborating on Kingspan’s recent cold store solution ModularisCold, on the sidelines of the Ninth Middle East Cold Chain Food Safety Conference, held on January 21, 2019, in Dubai. “With Modularis,” he said, “we are able to utilise the load-bearing capacity of the panel itself, so that you are able to build cold stores without the need for a steel structure.”

When compared to conventional cold store warehouse facilities, Sungar said, “One major difference is that we can get rid of the steel, so that you can save on space.” He added, “With the solution, we’re able to provide an additional 10% storage volume inside the cold stores, which is otherwise taken up by the steel structure.” In addition, he said, “You don’t need a contractor to erect the steel frame and don’t even need a structural engineer to design the steel structure.” This, he said, can result in saving nearly USD 60,000 of investment.
