Wijnegem, Antwerp, Belgium, 2010/03/23 - Frisomat, international player in industrial buildings, brings a brand-new sandwich panel line into use. The production line, the biggest in Belgium in its kind, is 114m long and custom made for Frisomat.
After a year full of development, assembly and tests, we take the production line in use as of May. The sandwich panel line will be operated by 4 specially trained operatives.
Biggest production line in Belgium in its kind
The production line will continuously manufacture insulation panels. The machine is accommodated in a 3.000m² production hall, specially built for this purpose. A lot of efforts have been done to keep the temperature steady. The production line is custom made for Frisomat, where flexibility, short transformation times and quality are very important.
The sandwich panel line can produce up to 8 different roof and side panels, up to 30cm thick. Panels of this thickness are ideal for cold storage rooms etc. Per minute, the production line can produce 8m of sandwich panel.
An optimized production for recyclability
A sandwich panel consists of two steel sheets where an insulation core is put between. Even though the sandwich panel line is able to work with different lagging, Frisomat chooses to use rock wool and EPS. Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is an excellent insulator where rock wool has the unique feature to be 100% fire resistant.
EPS-Sandwich panels have the advantage to be perfectly recyclable, in comparison to the classical PUR (Polyurethane) and PIR (Polyisocyanurate) panels.
Sandwich panels = an ecological choice
A well-insulated building can easily keep a constant temperature whether it has to be cold or hot. This has a positive influence on the energy consumption. The use of sandwich panels can guarantee this kind of insulation, moreover, thermal bridges are excluded. Ecology is a hot item. The new sandwich panels are there for the environmentally conscious entrepreneur.
The new production line symbolizes the flexibility, quality and environmental awareness from Frisomat.
Frisomat (frisomat.be) is a Belgian construction company specialized in the development, production and assembly of industrial buildings according to 9 building systems.
Each system is made of prefabricated steel components who fit together as a giant meccano set. These cold profiled components are made of galvanised High Strength Steel. Cold profiled steel combines an exceptional strength with an optimized use of materials.
Since 1978 Frisomat is continuously innovating cold profiled steel as the structure for its industrial buildings. Thanks to the relative low weight export is possible anywhere in the world. Export generates 80% of Frisomat’s turnover.
Meanwhile, Frisomat has 14 branches across Europe and Africa, and 2 production plants (Belgium and Romania). The different building systems are designed and developed in house and 400 employees are set to work.
