If you have a cold store which is suffering from damage due to frost heave, it is important that it is remedied as soon as possible, as the situation will only get worse if left untreated.
In extreme situations it may be necessary to dig up all the frozen earth and replace it, rebuilding the base of the cold store. However in many cases it is possible to adopt a method which is less disruptive and far less expensive:
Remedying frost heave
Thermatek® has developed a frost heave recovery solution which uses low voltage heaters to gradually thaw the earth beneath the cold store.
The heating elements are installed through small holes in the floor of the cold store and driven down into the frozen earth. They immediately stop the advance of the frost heave and start to return the ground to a safe temperature.
Each frost heave recovery system is custom designed for the particular situation and is professionally installed by Thermatek or trusted installers. It is based on the same technology as our proven frost heave prevention systems.
