Insulated partition system creating temperature-controlled environments
The Insulated Partition is a flexible partition system that allows the creation of temperature-controlled environments within open-plan factories and warehouse buildings.
Spanning floor to ceiling, this insulated dividing wall forms a thermal barrier; used to partition industrial spaces needing enclosed temperature controlled zones or separate areas of an open-plan building that need to be kept cold, hot or where a stable temperature needs to be maintained.
The Thermal Partition is a light-weight, fire rated, robust solution, creating a resilient physical barrier for industrial applications. Fitted in a ‘single fix’ the partition is rapidly installed, with little to no impact or interference with the existing building – ideal for rented premises or sites with an expected change of use.
The Insulated Partition is specifically designed to act as a thermal barrier, separating temperature-controlled areas within industrial environments. Providing a thermal performance with a U-value of 0.360 W/m2k, equivalent to composite wall panels.
In addition to it’s thermal properties, the Insulated Partition delivers all the benefits of our light-weight flexible partition system; separating manufacturing processes, acting as a dust barrier, screening sensitive activity and providing ‘clean’ working environments within active industrial sites.
This partition system can be installed as a single continuous sheet or subdivided into panels to meet specific building requirements; changing direction, fitting around existing structures and services.
The Thermal Partition has a total wall thickness of 80mm; formed of two offset spans of tensioned, 600gsm PVC coated fabric. The cavity between the two external sheets is filled with sheet insulation suspended from the partitions top fixing track. Panel joints are high-frequency welded giving superior strength and longevity; producing a smooth, uninterrupted surface that is easily maintained.
Welded sheets are tailored to fit the buildings internal profile; manufactured with a Keder bead running the full length of the sheets top edge for fitting into the top aluminium track.
The hanging system is formed of two continuous aluminium extrusions running along the top edge of the partition; clamped to the buildings primary steels and/ or purlins. This extrusion gives structure to the partition, allowing the wall panels to be suspended without any loss in tension. Once in place, the partition is fixed across its base and adjusted using the integrated tensioning system.
If additional steels are required to provide structure or enable the integration of a supporting framework, a scheme can be developed to best suit the practicalities of an individual site. If limited roof steels are available or the building being partitioned is of more unique construction, our experienced in-house engineering team can work to develop bespoke fixing systems to overcome the most challenging of sites.
Shipped to site as a palletised kit of parts. The Thermal Partition delivers our customers a distinct advantage over more traditional alternatives, delivering a high performance, low site impact, single trade installation, constructed rapidly, with no aftercare requirement.
