Cold storage design and construction

Building design and layout for cold storage

Basically, the floor area needed for refrigerated storage can be calculated by determining the maximum amount of product the facility will be expected to handle in units of volume divided by the storage height. Storage height is usually about 2 m, the height of a pallet load. Pallet bins are sometimes stacked to a height of over 3 m. To this area, add space for corridors and space for lift truck movement.

Airflow solutions

Maintain uniform air temperatures

Adequate airflow is needed to distribute refrigerated air throughout the facility and maintain uniform air temperatures. Airflow maintains adequate temperature uniformity. This can be done by the intermittent operation of fans, or by keeping the fans constantly on but reducing their speed with an electronic speed control system. Slow airspeeds reduce moisture loss from the product. Airflow must be distributed uniformly throughout the cold room to minimize temperature variability.

Airflow can also be important in the technical rooms and plenum for cooling and condensation control.

Refrigeration design

Early collaboration in the design process often leads to innovative designs and cost savings

Cold storage buildings have many different features that make a difference in maintaining the desired temperature and relative humidity (RH). A uniform temperature is maintained by adequate refrigeration capacity, uniform air distribution, minimal temperature difference between the evaporator coil and the air temperature, and a precise temperature control system.

The refrigeration design should also consider the best integration of the cooling installation in parallel with the building design in order to reduce, for instance, the distance between condenser and evaporator and thereby avoid losses.

Controlled atmosphere cold storage

Increase the storage times of your fruit & vegetables

Do you need a controlled atmosphere cold storage system for fresh fruit and vegetable storage?

Your building has many different features that make a difference in controlled atmosphere cold storage with specially adjusted air information. If you need to generate as much storage space as possible on the ground surface that is available, the area and especially the height of the steel building can be used in an optimal way to store goods.

Astron building solutions are designed to integrate optimum insulation and humidification devices, and appropriate humidity sensors meet the strict technical & hygiene requirements for controlled atmosphere cold storage.

Fish cold storage and blast freezing

Ensure high product quality in seafood

To ensure high product quality in seafood, it must be frozen or refrigerated as soon as possible. Our building solutions allow you to meet your cooling needs throughout the fish processing process, from processing to storage, and thereby maximize efficiency.

We have extensive experience in developing intelligent infrastructure for freezing storage, tailor-made for optimum reliability and maximum efficiency.

Energy saving from design to operation

# From A to Z
At Astron we strive to meet all your construction needs with attention to sustainability, providing a simplified and more environmentally friendly way to complete your construction project in every aspect of our business. Astron was one of the first players on the market to provide economical solutions for a «nearly zero-energy building» NZEB for industrial applications.

# Steel promotes sustainability
Because steel building systems start with recycled steel today and can be recycled at the end of their useful lives, systems construction outperforms all other forms of construction for life cycle analysis and least material impact on the environment.

# Certified approach
Astron is assessed by EcoVadis, an international network in the field of sustainability. The assessment focuses on global supply chains, i.e. networks of relationships between production, distribution and procurement. As an example, our optimised use of raw materials and the high recycling rate were rated very positively. The energy optimisation of the Astron buildings and the support of LEED and BREAM certificates were also honoured accordingly. The result is an energy-efficient building that is completed faster, with the highest quality and lowest risks.
