HI-F PANEL/COLD STORAGE
Cold storage panel with metal faces and rigid, insulating core, with exceptional thermal insulation, high durability and tongue and groove joints to guarantee airtightness. PUR type insulating foam (polyurethane), PIR (polyisocyanurate) or the new PIRM CLASS1 can be used, with improved performance and excellent fire resistance.
Available in ribbed surfaces (with a reduced, symmetrical rib height on both surfaces) or flat surfaces.
Applications that require a high degree of insulation: food and agricultural industry, cold stores, laboratories, etc.
The panel is certified to be used both inside and outside.
Depending on the set up, it can support spans of up to 11 m and loads of up to 200 kg/m2.
Thanks to its high rigidity and strength, the panel is certified for use in high seismic risk areas.
The panel is available with a wide range of coatings, to guarantee its maximum durability even in the most aggressive environments.

Types of joints
The HI-F panel is available with two types of joints, both with high rigidity, double tongue and groove which guarantees the best tightness with simple and fast assembly.
The FS joint requires additional silicon sealing, on the outside, during assembly.
The new FJ joint is certified by APPLUS, through laboratory assays, without the need for additional silicon sealing, with "Class A" water permeability at 1200 Pa and 0.013 m3/h.m2 air permeability at 50 Pa.
However, when required by the pressure and hygrometry conditions of the premises, an additional sealing can be provided during assembly, that remains hidden inside the FJ joint.
