Thermomass insulated manufacturing facilities require less building maintenance than those built using other construction methods. Thermomass walls are more durable than post insulated concrete walls or block and metal buildings which are easily damaged by forklifts or other equipment and are penetrable by vermin and insects.
Speed of construction is also a benefit of Thermomass. Facilities built with insulated concrete sandwich walls utilizing integral insulation are able to meet the aggressive schedule of today’s business market.
By sandwiching the insulation between two layers of concrete, the facility’s walls are built and insulated in one operation – greatly reducing construction time and getting the facility operational sooner.
In addition, with careful pre-planning, insulated facilities can be designed to allow for easy expansion by simply detaching and relocating the concrete panels or cutting new openings. Exterior walls can be double load bearing (interior and exterior wythes equal in thickness) to allow for future expansion.
