Intastor’s role in the agricultural industry

Intastor’s insulated pre-finished modular insulated panels are used across various applications in residential and commercial construction. Recognized as economical yet uncompromising in quality, our high-quality mild steel substrate panels not only meet green building objectives, but are aesthetically pleasing and durable.

Controlled atmosphere in agriculture – a critical requirement

One of the most popular applications of modular panels is in the agriculture industry, where controlled atmosphere (or CA) is an essential aspect of storage. This encompasses everything from small chiller rooms to livestock / feedstock rooms, equestrian and poultry buildings, dairy coolers and freezers, fodder production rooms, storage sheds and huge distribution centers.

Perishable products – both dry and fresh – must be stored under stringent environmental conditions, which vary based on the commodity being stored. CA helps to extend the marketable life of these products.

Energy savings via long-life panels

At Intastor, we understand the importance of thermal efficiency and effective energy usage in the agriculture industry. To ensure minimal wastage, extend the life of produce and save costs, we offer the highest R-value panels to make sure that cold storage rooms, barns and other structures maintain the appropriate temperature and humidity levels.

Our EPS insulated modular panels are designed for long-term value and maximum performance. We use resilient coated materials and superior quality insulation cores at our state-of-the-art continuous line laminator and can produce over 30 000 square meters per month via a single shift system.

Long life, high performance

Our insulated building panels come with robust structural integrity and low maintenance, reducing operational costs in the long run. The panels can be custom-made to unique specifications as they are available in various thicknesses and sizes, further ensuring design flexibility and minimal wastage of material. Since they are prefabricated and delivered ready-to-assemble on-site, there is practically no pre-construction work involved. The tongue-and-groove system makes it easy to erect using local labour.

The handling of meat processing from live animals to frozen product involves quick, safe and secure refrigeration; it requires accurate temperature control and the highest hygiene standards. Our insulated panels offer:

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Moisture resistance, keeping away mould and pests
  • Suitable options for roofing, flooring, walls and ceilings
  • Reliability with low operation and maintenance costs
  • High energy efficiency
  • Maintenance free operations
  • Flexibility in design
  • Economical construction with lower building costs
  • CFC and HCFC free panels that are non-toxic
  • A tight building envelope since the insulation material seals wall spaces, thereby preventing moisture and heat transfer, leading to energy savings.

Intastor’s EPS insulated modular panels are also used to retrofit existing structures to improve their thermal efficiency, moisture and humidity control. This is especially valuable where the cost of a new construction can be exorbitant.
