The Design and Engineering of Thermal Panels

June 12, 2018

Thermal insulation is universally used around the world to control temperatures in living spaces, cold storage areas, and for shipping and industrial purposes. This insulation is critical to human quality of life and working environments of all kinds.  The design and engineering involved in the use of thermal panels is an interesting study of science and innovation.


Thermal Panels in Commercial Architecture

Modern commercial architecture is far more complex than it looks. When it comes to temperature-controlled environments, it can be extremely complicated.


The Engineering Issues


Consider this scenario:


A large, commercial space like a cold storage warehouse contains a lot of air at ambient temperatures, well above freezing. Temperatures fluctuate considerably, plus or minus as much as 20 or 30 degrees seasonally. Ventilation transfers air and heat in these spaces. You will obviously need top-quality insulation.


In these scenarios, the amount of space and varying temperatures are the problems to be solved. It’s not enough to simply freeze the goods in freezer units. Heat transfer increases demand on refrigeration units which are expensive to run. It is best cold storage practice to fully insulate the entire area, reducing demand on power and protecting cold storage goods from spoilage.


Cold storage is typically graded at specific temperatures, like your frozen goods. Standard cold storage temperatures start at roughly -4 degrees Celsius.


The other tough engineering issue is our major environmental setback. In Australia, where external temperatures can hit 45 degrees in summer, your insulation has to be excellent to deliver that sort of protection, nearly 50 degrees below external temperatures.


Thermal Panels Design


Thermal insulation design has to solve these engineering problems and deliver custom solutions for a range of spaces.


Thermal panels are a design breakthrough in many ways. Thermal panels are designed to create fully integrated, temperature controlled environments. Integrated design is very flexible, using thermal panels to create perfectly controlled environments. These different environments range from carefully monitored research environments to large, busy food storage environments.


A combination of CAD design, engineering expertise and experience is required for these complex environments. Specialist thermal panel manufacturers are the usual support services for modern insulation design.


Modern commercial insulation is based on a truly vast range of different needs, including:


  • specific temperature performance needs, such as refrigeration panels
  • types of goods and materials in storage
  • site configuration and distribution access needs
  • cost-effective temperature control requirements


The overall need is for meticulous design and expert evaluation of specific site needs.
