PermaTherm and Food Processing
For food processing plants and food distribution companies, product spoilage and contamination will make or break the success of a business. Building a meat processing plant, poultry plant, creamery, or brewery requires construction practices and materials that meet a larger objective: food safety.
Food safety is the forefront of our minds at PermaTherm, which is why we have gone the extra mile to obtain the NSF International certification for our IMPs. Our insulated panels will not pollute food, water, or consumable goods, making it the ideal cold storage solution for food processing plants and distribution facilities. Our patented Z-lock connection creates an airtight, watertight, impenetrable seal making installation complications a rarity. Moisture leaks that lead to condensation in a freezer can create a supply of unconsumable goods, but our secure Z-lock connection ensures the safety of your consumables.
PermaTherm’s NSF International certified panels not only exceed food safety guidelines, they also build energy-efficient facilities. PermaTherm’s insulated panels are made from virgin EPS, premium metals, and superior coatings, all designed to last the lifetime of your business. If you are in the market for insulated metal panels, consider the effectiveness and environmental sustainability of your SIPS. Bearing the Green Guard Gold certification from Underwriter’s Laboratories, our IMPs offer business owners, contractors, architects, and engineers a greener option when planning a new cold storage facility.
PermaTherm insulated metal panel products are the preferred choice of contractors, business owners and architects who are designing various types of food processing facilities, including but not limited to:

Meat Processing Plants
Meat processing plants often require a variety of insulated rooms. Depending on the stage of processing, a meat processing plant needs to accommodate multiple functions. Whether you are installing a slaughterhouse, kill floor, meat locker, smoking room, or packing room, your meat processing plant must be equipped to handle a range of thermal needs and wash down requirements. Learn more about meat processing plants and panel insulation here.
Due to the nature of poultry processing, particular attention must be paid to food safety and sanitation. Cold rooms must be equipped to handle frequent washdowns on top of maintaining a chilled environment. Read more here about PermaTherm panels for Poultry Processing plants.
Aquaculture has become more prevalent as fish farming moves indoors. In addition to the moisture complications involved with indoor fish farming, fresh seafood is generally stored packed in ice. Because the insulated panel systems used for seafood must stand up to constant abrasion and wear, it is important to choose a product that is durable. PermaTherm’s plastisol panel coating delivers a long-lasting product, making it the ideal panel partner for rooms that undergo frequent washdowns.

From milking parlors, to pasteurization, to packaging, each stage of dairy processing requires a temperature-controlled environment. Choosing a panel product that covers ambient to freezing temperatures, in a range of panel thicknesses, is a necessary choice for accommodating the different processes of a dairy plant. Whether you are producing cheese, ice cream, or milk, choosing the right panel system for your plant will affect the freshness and quality of your product.

Fruit and Produce Processing
Because produce is quick to perish, it is necessary that fruit and vegetable processing plants have an insulated panel system that optimizes cold storage from the harvesting stage to product shipment. Even with foods like onions or potatoes that require minimal refrigeration, a temperature-controlled environment is still essential for delivering freshness.

Brewing, Distilling, and Bottling
With the rising popularity of microbrews, distilleries, and bottling plants, flexible, reliable insulation systems have become even more popular as these craft businesses grow. Many brewers and bottlers are looking for an insulated panel option that will adapt to, or merge seamlessly with, an existing structure.
