Refrigerator cells and warehouses are becoming increasingly common in the food industry. There the freezing cold air is transmitted through the building and downwards to the ground, lowering the floor temperature below 0°C.
In these situations, a process known as frost heaving (or frost heave) occurs — when water contained in the soil freezes, its volume increases and expands upwards. This creates a risk of raising the foundation and consequently leading to the formation of warps and cracks on the floor.
Over time, the buildup of damage caused by a frozen floor can lead to serious structural problems.
The safest and most cost-effective way to avoid frost heaving is by using the Modulo system, which creates a ventilated cavity between the ground and the last layer of the cell package, thus completely eliminating moisture.
Modulo is a passive system that does not require complex installation or continued maintenance.
- NO WARPS AND CRACKS ON THE FLOOR
- DISPERSION OF STORED COLD AIR
- DISPERSION OF RADON GAS
- CREATION OF SPACE FOR WIRING AND PLUMBING PLANTS
- HIGH LOAD BEARING CAPACITY (FOR BOTH DISTRIBUTED OR CONCENTRATED LOADS)
