FORT WORTH, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–KPS Global® has 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. The new system is one of
many products KPS Global has in the pipeline to support their drive to
innovate in an industry that hasn’t seen change in over 30 years.
“FUSIONFRAME provides the best of both worlds for grocery stores,
restaurants, convenience stores, big-box retailers, warehousing and cold
storage operations by combining the structural benefits of wood with the
insulative properties of foam; they never have to compromise performance
for structural integrity,” said Mike Eakins, CEO, KPS Global.
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.
“A reduced carbon footprint is another benefit,” said James Costanza,
Technical Fellow, KPS Global. “Environmental considerations are
important for all of our customers, whether they are regional or
national chain operators or only have one location.”
FUSIONFRAME system is available from five strategically located
facilities across the United States. Each order is custom-built to
