Fire Resistant Cold Store Insulation


Pyro-Foam is new fire-resistant foam developed by MacGREGOR's Passenger Ship division for the insulation of prefabricated paneling. While the new foam has been developed specially for panels used in provisions stores and walk-in refrigerators, it is also available in a range of fire-resistant doors intended for use in cold stores. Since Pyro-Foam is inherently fire resistant, separate fire retardants are not required. Tests, according to the manufacturer, show that a foam-filled 100mm-thick panel has more than 60 minutes of fire resistance.

Pyro-Foam is an environment-friendly modified phenolic foam which does not contain any CFCs and has an ODP (ozone depletion potential) of zero. Its fine cell structure results in a consistent thermal conductivity which remains constant during the foam's lifetime. The main advantages of the new Pyro-Foam are not only its high levels of fire resistance and thermal insulation, but also its ability to resist humidity. Panels filled with Pyro-Foam reduce possibility of flash-over thus containing spread of fire, as phenolic foam has a low burning rate and a low rate of heat generation. The amount of smoke generated is also minimal, particularly compared with traditional polyurethane and polyisocyanurate based foams.
