Walk-in insulated panels shall be of pre-fabricated modular construction designed for fast and easy field assembly, relocation, and future expansion by the addition of like panels. Outdoor walk-ins will include a heavy-duty, one-piece membrane roof cap for protection against all weather conditions.
Panels shall consist of interior and exterior metal skins precisely formed with steel dies and roll-forming equipment and thoroughly checked with gauges for accuracy. The metal skins shall be bonded tenaciously and permanently to the insulation. Hi-density panels have incredible flexural strength which eliminates the need for perimeter wood framing (old style construction) still used by some competition. To insure tight joints, all wall panels connect with positive cam-locking mechanisms.
Only solid core approved foamed in place or extruded insulation shall be used. Minimum thickness shall be four inches which exceeds insulation values (R-values) in Federal Energy Standard H.R.6 effective January 1st, 2009, for walk-in coolers and freezers.
Optional: 4", 5", 6", 8", 12" thick wall thickness available for required applications. Only environmentally friendly expansion agents are to be used in the manufacture of insulated cores. No energy robbing structural wood rails shall be used except where necessary for glass door and/or window attachment.
- Standard: Smooth 26 ga. Galvanized silver
- Optional: 24 & 22 ga. stainless steel
- Optional: Other finishes and gauges available upon request
Floor panel construction shall be similar to that described in above Panel Construction section, but with a heavier gauge metal skin. Walking surfaces in open food approved boxes shall be stainless steel or aluminum. Galvanized metal will be used in closed food applications. Insulated floor panels are designed to withstand uniformly distributed stationary floor loads up to 600 lbs. psf. Contact your AWIC at 800-430-4468 for heavier load requirements and when optional metal finishes are required.
Panel fasteners will be cam action male and female profile. Panels shall be fastened to adjacent panels by inserting a hex wrench in small-predrilled access ports on the male interior side. A clockwise turn of the wrench will activate a cam lever hook to catch a pin in the adjacent panel mechanism and draw the panels tightly together. Access ports are to be covered by press-fit plug buttons supplied with the panels.
