InsulWall Helps Moms Everywhere Smile on Mother’s Day

InsulWall Protects Flowers for Mothers Day 

 

Mother’s Day is one of the busiest times of the year for a florist. For Kendal Floral Supply this presented a challenge. Kendal needed a way to keep arrangements cool without sacrificing valuable warehouse space the remainder of the year. When a contractor proposed building a permanent cooler room, Kendal recoiled and called Josh Welch, territory manager for Engineered Products, a Papé Company (Seattle, WA).

 

Instead of a permanent room, Welch proposed installing InsulWall® from Randall Manufacturing. InsulWall, an insulated curtain wall system, would keep the room at a constant temperature of 50 degrees and could be removed when the season was over. Engineered Products engaged Randall Manufacturing to work closely with Kendal Floral to:

  • Design InsulWall to leverage Kendal’s infrastructure utilizing walls and cooling systems.
  • Engineer InsulWall to take into account the ceiling slope.
  • Provide a panel with a weight less than 50 lbs. per square foot.
  • Create short and long-term cost savings, factoring in InsulWall’s reusability.  Kendal decided to expand the dimensions – ultimately creating a 3,500 square foot x 37’ high enclosure.  Even with the change order, it took only four weeks to manufacture, deliver and install InsulWall.  Kendal Floral was striving to meet increased demand by creating a temporary cold storage room – quickly, with a wall system that was modular, flexible and thermal.  And, it was half the cost of the proposed permanent room.

 

InsulWall helped Kendal Floral create a cooler room within its 160,000 square foot warehouse space.  At half the cost of the permanent wall option, Kendal Floral is enjoying Mother’s Day season and keeping Mom’s (and children) happy everywhere.
