PermaTherm Panels in a Meat Processing Facility

Meat Processing, Production, and Packing Plants

Meat processing facilities have a variety of performance requirements that include much more than simple thermal performance. Processing and packing plants, whether beef, pork, lamb, or other foods are specific to each producer’s desired result. In large facilities, each room operates with a distinct set of environmental requirements particular to each product type.

PermaTherm customers are as diverse as the market itself. Over the years we have helped construct processing plants covering numerous foodstuffs, understanding that each facility is conceived and constructed with a specific outcome in mind.

We know that processing plants are constructed to accommodate multiple functionalities in the food industry such as:


  • Cutting
  • Drying
  • Aging
  • Curing
  • Smoking
  • Seasoning


  • Cooling
  • Freezing
  • Blast Freezing


  • Vacuum Packaging
  • Boxing
  • Shipping

No Beef About It

PermaTherm is the 30+year industry leader in customizing thermal building envelopes for meat lockers and processing plants. We understand the individual needs of each facility. While other insulated panels may offer thermal performance, PermaTherm offers a high-quality, high-performing product with R-values that do not deteriorate over time.

In addition to conventional insulated wall panels, PermaTherm can offer a variety of exterior surface combinations and paint finishes, helping you build a solution tailored to your company’s particular processes. Our panels are available in a USDA approved plastisol paint system that withstands harsh, frequent wash downs and constant abrasion – a feature necessary for slaughterhouses and butcheries. Certain spaces, like curing rooms, benefit from our suspended ceiling systems to help maximize flavor. PermaTherm’s retrofit walls, partitions, and expansions can accommodate virtually any potential meat production room or building project as well as the separation of the distinct processes.
