THERMOMASS sandwich panels were installed to form a thermal envelope over Mainfreight’s new 5.5 hectare Transport and Logistics supersite in Larapinta, Queensland.
Expertly crafted by CJB Panels, the panels are thought to be the largest tilt-up THERMOMASS panels ever made in Australia – the largest section measures almost 12m x 7.5m, and weighs in at around 47 tonnes.
THERMOMASS sandwich tilt-up panels utilise the THERMOMASS concrete sandwich panel insulation system for superior thermal envelope performance.
Mainfreight is using nearly 4000m² of THERMOMASS rigid insulation to create the thermal envelope of their structure.
In addition to the immediately apparent benefits of reduced energy consumption and significantly more stable diurnal swings, the distribution centre made out of precast concrete panels has key significant advantages such as the durability, security and speed of construction of concrete, high insulation effects of THERMOMASS rigid insulation, longer-lasting industrial facility, and ability to maintain internal storage temperatures at required levels with decreased cooling requirements.
