Thermal Solutions for Temperature-Sensitive Controlled Environments
Insulated Metal Panels
Installing insulated panels is our core work. We use this energy-efficient, clean, and bright panels to form the exterior of building envelopes, ceilings, and walls of freezers, coolers, and other temperature-controlled environments where it is critical to the integrity of the product and/or manufacturing process. They benefit the end-user by providing one product that provides all the control layers of air, water, vapor, and thermal in one product installation. Additionally, PCI uses panels in the construction of manufacturing and commercial facilities. We utilize this material in new construction, renovations, and expansions. Our approach adds value to our customer; value derived from ROI savings in performance, appearance, speed of installation, reduction in materials, and reduced facility maintenance costs.
The most critical component to any low temperature installation is the integrity of a monolithic vapor barrier. PCI understands how fundamental this is for the continuing operation of your facility. A failing vapor barrier system can cause moisture infiltration, frosting, and ice build-up; all characteristics that are negative to a low temperature environment.
We install a vapor barrier under slabs in freezers and certain cooler configurations. Our team will ensure that this vapor barrier connects correctly to the exterior wall system. PCI is also very knowledgeable in another critical vapor barrier situation: the roof-to-wall juncture. This detail is especially problematic if your selected roofing contractor does not understand the importance of a solid vapor barrier system.
PCI has the capability to successfully install a quality vapor barrier system for this vital area on your low temperature facility. If you have an existing facility and you suspect vapor intrusion, please contact us at (863) 644-4738 to investigate and offer a comprehensive solution.
PCI insulates floors and allied floor parts to improve thermal performance in buildings. In cold storage facilities, floors are insulated to create the proper thermal barrier. Insulation material R-values, density, and compressive strength vary. These are items to consider especially when your facility is a freezer or other refrigerated area where thermal and moisture vapor control is critical.
The PCI team understands the importance of the details, like ensuring the proper staggering of multi-layered installations and confirming all gaps between insulation boards are tight. Floor insulation is crucial to the longevity of your low-temperature finished floor. Combined with column isolation blocks, this system is critical to years of continued operation.
Insulated Curtain Walls
PCI offers innovative semi-permanent temperature-controlled wall systems also. Utilizing insulated curtain walls, you can economically reconfigure existing spaces to enhance your operation’s utilization of space.
Our team installs curtain walls in a variety of applications and configurations. These semi-permanent walls allow you to create temperature zones within an existing building without permanent modification. Let PCI help you decide if this is the right solution to meet your needs.
PCI utilizes thermal imaging for both quality assurance applications and existing facility problem diagnosis. This capability allows PCI to both verify our end product is installed correctly and to assess existing facility problems quickly for a root cause determination. This adds value to you, knowing the installation is correct and reducing the time to make corrections on existing issues that may impact your facility’s operation.
Our capabilities as a low-temperature contractor give us a thorough understanding of critical details like vapor seals and their importance in your building’s envelope. The most critical component of any low-temperature installation is the integrity of a monolithic vapor barrier. PCI understands how fundamental this is for the continuing operation of your facility.
A failing vapor barrier system can cause moisture infiltration, frosting, and ice build-up. These are all characteristics that negatively impact a low-temperature environment.
One vital detail occurs at the roof-to-wall juncture. This detail is especially problematic if your selected roofing contractor does not understand the importance of a solid vapor barrier system. While not as critical In commercial & Industrial application, vapor drive or migration Into buildings must be controlled for health and safety and building longevity.
