In October, Penny Market opened its logistics centre in Veszprém, to supply its shops in Western Hungary. The thermal insulation and load-bearing capacity of the cold store floors of the 26,500 square meter building are guaranteed by our RAVATHERM XPS 700 SL thermal insulation.
Veszprém is the third logistics centre of Penny Market in Hungary, in addition to Karcag and Alsónémedi, and will supply 59 stores with goods, thus implementing 28% of the company’s total logistics capacity. Penny Market Ltd. has been present in our country since 1996 with 208 shops, employing is more than 3 thousand people.
The complex has a capacity of 15,000 pallets and takes between 1,600 and 2,000 pallets of goods per day. In order for the floor to withstand this enormous daily stress, it was necessary to install thermal insulation that would not be compressed in the long term during continuous use.
Therefore, in the logistics centre, the thermal insulation of the floor under the cold storage areas used heavy-duty RAVATHERM XPS 700 SL closed cell polystyrene foam thermal insulation. This thermal insulation is suitable for absorbing the weight of the structure, the stored goods and the short and long-term dynamic stress resulting from forklift traffic. In addition to high load-bearing capacity, RAVATHERM XPS has excellent thermal insulation properties, which it retains in the long term, making it an excellent choice for heat protection of the cooled and frozen spaces.
