Thermal Insulated Sandwich Panels


Insulated panels provide solution to the numerous insulation problems occurring in light weight prefabrication. One of the common applications of the insulated panels is the building of cold rooms and refrigerated vehicle bodies. For this application, insulated panels find wide use around the world due to its characteristic to provide maximum thermal insulation. Over the last 48 years, TSSC™ has been at the forefront of this specialized industry manufacturing high quality panels to the satisfaction of its large customer base. The harsh weather conditions in the Gulf region have been a driving force for the increasing demand for insulated panels in the region. TSSC is an ISO 9001:2000 quality management certified company and adheres to stringent quality standards in manufacturing its products.


Insulated panels have a monolithic sandwich construction which is formed as a result of injecting rigid polyurethane foam at high density between metal claddings. TSSC offers its customers a wide range of cladding materials to choose, depending on their application requirements. TSSC™ manufactures insulated wall, ceiling and floor panels to customer specified sizes that are used in building cold rooms for chiller and freezer applications. The state-of-the-art production facility spread across Sharjah and Dubai uses 15m (49.2ft) long press and manufactures panels in lengths of up to 15m (49.2ft). TSSC installs and commission cold rooms of any specified capacity.  The insulated panels can be joined together in necessary lengths to meet the dimensional requirements. Depending on the application, cold stores can be built to control temperatures ranging from -40ºC to 15ºC. 



Thickness of Insulated Panels:


Depending on specific customer requirements, Glaciers Technical Services also supplies sandwich panels. We supply and install Polyurethane insulated Sandwich Panels for Walls, Ceiling and Floor to customer specified sizes that are used in building cold rooms for chiller and freezer applications. Sandwich Panels are available in following thicknesses:

  • 50mm      

  • 80mm     

  • 100mm     

  • 120mm

  • 150mm    

  • 170mm    

  • 200mm




Cold room walls, ceilings and floors are assembled by joining together insulated panels in required lengths. The panels are then tightly joined by a tongue and groove system into a monolithic assembly.  For joining the panels together camlocks with steel hooks are used to securely lock them together. The camlocks are moulded and permanently anchored in the injected rigid polyurethane foam core during the manufacture of the sandwich panel. 


The assembly of the panels is done from interior side of the cold room by turning the locking arm of the camlock with a hex wrench. The hex wrench engages the pin in the adjacent panel with the lock component in the first panel. The camlock action seals the two panels tightly together ensuring total air tightness to the cold store, and increases the strength and stability of the structure. The tongue and groove edges assure straight alignments of all panels.


The use of camlocks in connecting the panels makes TSSC™ cold rooms easily expandable as well as dismantable thus allowing easy reassembly at various locations.


Insulation Foam Properties 


At TSSC™. polyurethane foam is used to insulate the panels. As part of the company’s green initiative, TSSC ensures that all foaming agents are environment friendly and CFC free. Polyurethane is manufactured by reacting a liquid polyol component with Methylene Diphenyl di-Isocyanate (MDI), a liquid polymeric isocyanate component, in the presence of a blowing agent and other additives. The mixed components then react exothermally to form a rigid thermosetting polymer and since the blowing agent evaporates during this exothermic reaction, a rigid closed cell low density insulation product is created.


Excellent insulation is achieved because the gas trapped within the closed cell structure has a very low thermal conductivity and there is minimal heat conduction through the solid cell walls due to the low density. The high strength to weight ratio of polyurethane makes it the ideal choice for insulated panels that are used for refrigerated storage of goods. 42 kg per cubic meter (2.62 lb/ft3) is the most common density for polyurethane used for insulation applications.


The characteristics of the panel insulation are that it neither deteriorates over time nor does it absorb smell. The panels are neither toxic nor cause allergies and do not support the growth of fungi or mildew. According to European Fire retardant standards, these products are classified as B2.
