Bethlehem pioneered the use of concrete sandwich wall technology with and other precast for specialized storage like controlled atmosphere and table grape storage. Early on, Bethlehem Construction saw the potential of using precast concrete as a system to eliminate dry rot and other costly issues in food storage. Precast’s durability and low maintenance saved cost and helped maintain a high food quality environment.
Thermal Flywheel Effect
Concrete layers provide thermal mass inside a room. By cooling the interior mass, with the room, to the desired temperature, cold is stored. This helps maintain steady temperature even when warmer product is brought in and helps avoid sudden load on the refrigeration system. This can be beneficial in saving on energy costs and assist in getting product cooled more quickly with less refrigeration usage.
