RE: Freezer building - thermal break

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have used banded wooden blocks for very low temp freezers, say -10F.  I currently do some small freezers for a large grocery chain.  As per their prototype, we insulate the floor, and drop the steel columns to about 3' below grade; but no other thermal breaks are used.  I can email you the wood block detail, if I can find it.

Can anyone suggest an effective method of creating a thermal break at the base of  steel columns in a freezer building?
