KPS Global® released a new insulated panel frame system offering more than four times the R-value, 29.30 vs. 6.25, and comparable structural performance to traditional wood-frame systems in span tests.
The design of the patented FUSIONFRAME® provides energy savings and extends the life-cycle for walk-in coolers and freezers by eliminating thermal bridging and limiting heat gain, condensation development and panel joint icing.
In tests of a 5-inch FUSIONFRAME insulated panel against a 5-inch woodframe panel, the new system reduced heat gain through the freezer envelope by 50% and performed comparably in span tests. FUSIONFRAME also eliminates thermal bridging found in traditional wood framing.
Providing both a significant improvement in energy efficiency and structural integrity, this system is a cost-effective and environmentally conscious solution.
