Recommended Floor Insulation Thicknesses in Cold Rooms
HEAT INSULATION UNDER FLOOR CONCRETE
In order to save energy, and to protect the cold room and to prevent heat escaping from the floor, a continuous and reliable heat extraction is required. Regardless of the condition of the existing cold room or any cold storage depot, a thermal insulation layer may be placed under or over the flooring concrete.In the following section, the floor structures under which the thermal insulation is used under the base concrete are described and the types of load they are subjected to are listed. Thermal insulation boards used in foundation walls and floors; product loads to be stored fortlifts must withstand the loads of high racks:
Below is the recommended floor insulation detail
1-) Square Mosaic (3 cm)
2-)Cement Mortar Screed ( 3 - 5 cm)
3-) Reinforced Concrete( 5 - 7 cm )
4-)Styropor ( 10 – 15 cm)
5-) Steam Breaker
6-) Unreinforced Concrete ( 10 – 12 cm )
7-)Blockage ( 5 cm)
FLOOR BUILDING COMPONENTS
GROBETON interrupts the ground and the foundation by preventing water or harmful chemicals from damaging the foundation concrete and bringing the foundation to the level required for laying reinforcement.
STYROPOR, is a hard, insulating, lightweight, polystyrene base plastic. Generally used for preservation and insulation purposes. STYROPOR is an oil (derivative) by product. It has the lowest thermal conductivity among other peers; They are manufactured in various densities ranging from 8gr / dm3 to 100gr / dm3 and have a wide range of applications.
STEAM BREAKER It removes the steam produced to increase the durability and energy efficiency of the structures exposed to cold, moisture and steam and prevents corrosion of the building elements in time. In addition, it prevents air leakage and keeps the cooled air in the structure and saves 30% energy.
BLOCKING The recommended layer to be poured under 15 cm thick, usually consisting of crushed or broken rubble poured under grobeton. It is a good measure against water with its intermittent structure.
