“From the vine to the table, with nothing lost in between.”
After building table grape storage the traditional way with wood roof systems and concrete walls, it was evident an all precast design could help eliminate costly and problematic replacement of dry rot and rust damaged buildings. Bethlehem’s team designed the structure entirely out of precast so all wood and exposed metal was eliminated. This included the roof system and any bunker walls for cooling. Bethlehem’s all concrete design has become the current industry standard.
» Interior storage space due to long span qualities of engineered concrete
» Resistance of your wall surfaces to forklift damage
» Ability to maintain a gas tight environment for SO2 gassing
» Food safety compliance
» Humidity consistency within interior spaces
» Maintenance costs and wear over time
» Moisture infiltration issues and subsequent mold and dry rot of permanent wood building components
» Exposed structural connections
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.
