As food safety requirements have been significantly overhauled and continue to change within the industry, insurers and trade bodies require further evidence on the products used within food manufacturing facilities.
On their insurer’s request, our client required Stancold to undertake an inspection of the panel systems used within their production facility, and produce a core sample box with a corresponding report identifying their make-up.
Once the required inspection areas were highlighted, Stancold’s team arranged a time to visit site, armed with the correct tools to extract panel core samples and neatly fill and reseal.
The experienced team took over ten samples across the facility, always surveying in inconspicuous areas within both walls and ceilings to maintain tidiness. This process showed that polystyrene-cored panel systems and PIR panels were present and that there were some areas of damage and delamination.
In areas where access wasn’t feasible on the day, the experienced team were able to make informed assumptions about the panel insulation material and clearly indicated this on the report submitted to our client.
Through utilising expertise and industry experience of over 75 years, Stancold were able to reliably offer an independent service to assist with this essential insurance validation process.
