Freezer Storage for Carbon Fibre, Rochdale



Part of Airtech Advanced Materials Group, Tygavac approached us to design & build storage for carbon fibre, which they use during manufacturing. It has an extended lifespan when stored below -20C. Due to our extensive experience in this area, we were selected as their partner for this important project.


Full turnkey 470m³ coldstore with refrigeration, pallet racking, concrete floor & protection system.


The insulated store was built using 125mm Kingspan PIR panels finished in 120 Micron PVC Laminate. The door is an insulated sliding door suitable for forklift truck access. The floor comprises an underfloor heater, insulation & reinforced concrete. The refrigeration consists of two J & E Hall condensing units, connected to two Searle evaporators located high in the freezer. We installed all the mechanical, plumbing and electrical works, including all testing and commissioning.

Finally, we installed an innovative RDM data manager which enables the client to monitor and control the room’s performance. This can be done either locally or remotely using a desktop computer or an app installed on a mobile device.
