Helsinki – Profholod, a Russian insulated panel maker, has supplied four cold rooms to a grocery store chain in Helsinki.
The rooms are made of PIR panels, faced in either coloured metal or coloured metal/zinc combinations. They feature two hinged single-leaf refrigeration doors.
Yuri Savin, Profholod's head of insulation export sales, said: 'Europe is one of the most promising markets for insulation. Global lockdowns in 2020 have prompted fears about the maintenance of supply chains, and European companies are pursuing new suppliers at home and abroad.'
He said that the panels were made to EN14509. Profholod, which is based in Schelkovo, about 40km north east of Moscow, claims to have produced 18m sqm of sandwich panels for 20 countries across the globe.
