Meeting Food and Safety Requirements
The quality and freshness of foods is of great importance but the challenge resides in preserving it once the food exits the plant. Therefore, it needs to be kept in sheltered and controlled environments to ensure these standards are met during the whole process. Whether meat and poultry, fruits and vegetables or dairy and egg products, manufacturers require reliable, safe and energy efficient environment.
The Right Insulation for Energy Efficiency
Food must be stored in environments with specific temperatures and humidity levels to maintain the cold chain. Norbec’s products provide the right insulation to ensure the temperature is maintained and kept constant. The insulated metal panels have a polyurethane closed-cell core eliminating any possible moisture infiltration. Panel joints used, along with the camlocks, provide a water and vapor proof seal made to withstand pressure washed maintenance and harsh chemicals. The elimination of thermal bridges results in efficient insulation which leads to reduced energy costs.
Whether during the processing, aging or during storage, foods such as meat or dairy are subject to chemical reactions where substances emitted can have a corrosive effect on their environment. For guaranteed maximum protection against corrosion, Norbec offers a variety of finishes for all types of produce such as the Advantica finish. A laminate specially formulated to meet the most stringent requirements of atmosphere controlled environments such as food processing, preparation, storage and packaging.
Custom projects that require maximum storage space, controlled energy efficiency and optimizes labor effectiveness are offered using a variety of products. Norbec’s production equipment allows the fabrication of large panels, which can either be continuous or camlock panels. The insulated panels and supplied accessories are designed to ensure an efficient and fast assembly to adapt to any project type.

NOREX® – S Joint
Polyisocyanurate (Polyurethane) Core Panel
Norex-S is a high-resistance continuous panel used primarly for food processing plant walls. It’s core consists of polyisocyanurate (polyurethane), a rigid insulation in the form of closed cell expanded foam.
Polyurethane Camlock Panels
NORBEC’s panels have a close-celled polyurethane core eliminating any possible moisture accumulation and offering a higher thermal value per inch. Panels offer a wide range of possibilities, increments of half and inch, based on specific needs. Thicknesses of 3, 4, and 5 inches are offered and cam have a maximal height of 18 feet.
Custom Door for Specific Need
Specializing in custom manufacturing, Norbec has earned a solid reputation for the quality and sturdiness of their doors. Each door is individually designed and manufactured in-house using unique assembly methods. The Norbec door line offers a one-of-a-kind flexibility unmatched on the market and continuously enables them to distinguish to manufacturing stages, quality is of the utmost importance in the development of products at Norbec.
Components that can be used
Corrosion & Scratch Resistant Finish
Advantica® L Control is a laminate specifically designed for controlled environments. This highly resistant finish meets the stringent requirements of controlled environments in applications such as food processing and preparation, cold storage and packing, pharmaceutical clean rooms and medical environment.
To protect the wall panels from damage caused by equipement, whether trolleys or forklifts, custom bumpers can be added at the desired height and width. These bumpers are made either from stainless steel, recycled plastic or high density polyethylene (HDPE).
For interior applications, panels can be used as suspended ceilings to ensure a superior seal throughout all the sides of the room. PVC moldings are added to provide solidity to the seals as well as to conceal the suspension. Pedestrian traffic is permitted and easily accessible for maintenance purposes.
To ensure food safety and avoid contamination, special equipment is necessary to handle heavier meat loads. Reinforcements can be installed in the ceilings to allow the possibility of installing meat rails. Meat rails can accommodate any types of meats and the transportation of these from one room to another.
