One of the challenges in warehouse storage is dealing with temperature sensitive products, such as food and pharmaceuticals. Often, the storage of these types of products needs to be done close to other operations such as manufacturing lines or picking and packing, as more often than not delivering dual functions under the same roof is the desirable option as it’s much more efficient. Naturally, the temperature demands of sensitive products will be different to the requirements of the rest of the facility.
Similarly, within multi-storage warehouses that provide storage for various products and sometimes, different clients, it is often necessary to store different types of products at different temperatures and within close proximity to one another. Sometimes an existing customer, or new client contract drives the need for a temperature controlled area to be created quickly and easily.
Flexiwall for temperature controlled enclosures
Flexiwall is designed and installed in individual light-weight fire rated material panels that are robust enough to form a permanent partition, but flexible enough to be easily reconfigured, relocated or removed as the needs of the business change.
It is a great product for creating temperature controlled enclosures as the panels that make up the final Flexiwall partition have thermal properties, and once the partition has been installed it offers an effective airtight seal, great for maintaining conditioned air flow. Flexiwall materials are also non conductive, which leads to minimum condensation build up.
Westgate recently worked with Great Bear on a project at their Deeside facility in North Wales, this project was to help Great Bear control temperature and odours between product storage, and showcases one example of how Flexiwall is a flexible and effective solution for temperature segregation; Read the full case study here
Other benefits of Flexiwall
If you’re looking to create a temperature controlled enclosure, there are also many other reasons why Flexiwall would be the preferable solution.
- Quick installation for minimum disruption to existing operations
- Installs to any height and width so that even the trickiest spaces can be used
- Cleaner installation when compared to more traditional solid partition walls, saving on clean up costs
- Minimal floor space is required so companies can retain their existing storage space, or even install between racking
- Multiple access options can be incorporated to provide an integrated solution
- Flexiwall can be designed with corporate logos and colours
