The agri-foodstuffs market has got bigger and, therefore, performances are different according to the use made of the building.
Globalization means that the product can be manufactured in any part of the world and sold elsewhere.
Depending on the products we store, the facilities may require a heating or a cooling system.
If we store fruit, a constant temperature of 4 to 6ºC is required.
However, when the stored goods are not perishable, the temperature should be right for the people working inside.
Most products in storage are combustible, which is why we should be especially careful about protecting the people who work there, as well as the firemen, the goods and the buildings nearby.
Active fire safety measures such as smoke detectors, sprinklers and smoke exhaust systems are commonly used. Their fire protection role is enhanced by the presence of the fire protection walls Arval can offer. Internal partitions or façades are often required with a special 30 to 180 minute fire resistance or even greater.
Arval can offer you various different systems suited to these requirements.
