Grafo-Therm Anticondensation Coating
Is the cost effective long term solution to preventing and treating dripping roof condensation.
As used on 1000's of buildings across the UK with 100% success, buildings from domestic garages, Cold stores, Aircraft hangers, Schools, Sports facilities to vast warehouses. Condensation costs millions each year through damage to goods, litigation, accidents and premature corrosion of fixings and purlins, in some cases the roof fixings have failed in only 5-7 years. All single skin steel or aluminium roofs including insulated systems with a ventilated airspace have the capacity to condense and drip on some materials condensation produces the ideal conditions for mould growth, to prevent this.
When the roof above a Cold Store suffers from condensation hazardous conditions are caused. When the condensation drips from the roof and purlins onto the top of the highly insulated composite panels, this forms large puddles which in our experience have been up to 60mm deep, putting a lot of extra weight onto the panel and decreasing the panels safe working load, this water permeates through the joints and any perforations into the panels, this water then freezes and increases the weight of the composite panel in extreme cases huge icicles form inside the cold store itself, we have seen these up to 2m in length and normally there is a patch of ice on the floor below, these icicles readily break off when the panels flex due to someone walking on top for maintenance etc.
Warehouses and Workshops
When condensation is allowed to freely drip from warehouse and workshop roofs it can cause problems with the electric/fire alarm systems, it can damage machinery, watermark or stain stored goods, make piles of cardboard boxes collapse, encourage mould to form on the already damp stored goods and even allow ice patches to form on the floor.
Grafo-therm is used in many shipping containers which are mainly used for storage purposes both privately and in self storage centres, throughout the winter months they tend to drip with condensation causing damage to stored goods and has resulted in litigation and insurance claims.
