panels 1Better panel fabrication means one thing: better walk-ins. The panels consist of urethane insulation, which is sandwiched between interior and exterior metal “skins”. This metal skin has been die-formed and gauged for uniformity in size. The edges of the panels are tongue and groove with Tafco SureLock fasteners, which are “foamed-in-place” during fabrication.

The panels are provided with NSF listed PVC gaskets, which are “foamed-in-place” on both interior and exterior sides of the panel. The gaskets are impervious to all stains, greases, oils, mildews, etc. They ensure an air-tight seal and also eliminate the need for seam caulking.

The urethane foam is bonded to the inner surfaces of metal pans, having an average thermal conductivity (K-Factor) of 0.13 TU/hr/ft²/degrees/Fahrenheit/inch. Also, the panels have an overall coefficient of heat transfer (U-Factor) of no more than 0.0312. As tested in accordance with ASTM C 518-2004, the R-Factor for coolers at temperatures of 55 °F is greater than 29.0 for 4” thick panels. The R-Factor for 5” thick panels is greater than 36.0. For freezers at temperatures of 20 °F, the R-Factor is greater than 32.0 for 4” thick and greater than 40.0 for 5” thick panels.
