What’s the difference between a cam-lock panel and a slip-joint panel?

Cam Lock Cold Room Panel’s Advantage

Cam lock type cold room panel is composed of two layers of steel facing and PU core material. Because two pieces of panels are fixed by pin and hook, we call it a cam lock panel. Cam Lock Panel has below advantages:

  • Easy to assemble. (Connected by tongue and groove, fixed by pin and hook)
  • Easy to expand size once you need to enlarge the length.
  • Easy to maintain. (Easy to unlock and change the panel for the old cold room)
  • Better insulation and high fire retardant property. (Ensure cold room reduces less heating loss and meanwhile has better fire retardant).

Cam Lock Cold Room Panel’s Disadvantage

Because cam lock type cold room panel is produced process by process, its delivery time is decided by labor workers’ speed. its quality is affected by workshop workers’ skills. At first,  the steel sheet will be cut as ordered room size and shaped by Bending forming machines. In common, the hot season’s order might need a longer delivery time.

Cam lock-type panel quality is easily affected by the atmosphere.  The foaming process is a complex chemical process. PU core materials need A and B materials. The summer might need a short foaming time and the winter needs a longer time.  So the skilled labor worker is a key factor to affect the quality. Therefore, the quality is good or bad, and human factors have a great influence. Another because the shaped process and foaming process are made by the different workshops, the steel cover board is easily deforming during the pass process.

Cam Lock Cold Room Panel’s Application

Cam lock type cold room panel is mainly used for middle size or small size cold rooms. It is widely used in the food industry, medical industry, and other related industries.

In the food industry, a cam lock type cold room panel is usually used in food process factories, slaughterhouses, fruit, and vegetable warehouse, supermarket, hotel, restaurants, etc.

In the medical industry, the cold room is usually used in hospitals, pharmaceutical factories, blood centers, gene centers, etc.

Other related industries, such as chemical factories, laboratories, and logistics centers, also need cam lock-type cold room panels for insulation.

Slip Joint Type Cold Room Panel’s Advantage

Slip Joint type cold room panel is composed of two layers of steel facing and PPIR core material. Because two pieces of panels are fixed by a self-tapping screw, we call it a slip joint type panel. Slip Joint type panel has below advantages:

Assemble way is free. (Connected by tongue and groove, fixed by a rivet or self-tapping screw)
Easy to expand size once you need to enlarge the length.
Best insulation property and better fire retardancy. That could meet the B1 fire retardant class. Better insulation property could save power consumption.
Appearance is beautiful and neat. (Because it is produced by automatic production line and the foaming way is vertical foaming. The material is even that ensures PIR panel without bulbs and holes).
Fast delivery, the slip joint type PIR panel could be ready within 7 days after receiving the deposit.
Slip Joint Type Cold Room Panel’s Disadvantage

Because slip joint type cold room panel is produced by automatic production line. so it needs to meet with minimum order quantity.

Slip joint type panel needs some accessories including u channel, L clamp, L splash, suspension system, etc. The installation accessories cost is relatively higher than the cam-lock type panel.

Slip Joint type Cold Room Panel’s Application

Slip joint type cold room panel is mainly used for middle size or large size cold rooms and cold storage warehouses. It is widely used in the food industry, medical industry, logistics warehouse, and other related industries.

In the food industry, slip joint type cold room panel is usually used in food process factories, slaughterhouse, fruit, and vegetable warehouse, supermarket, hotel, restaurant, etc.

In the medical industry, the cold room is usually used in hospitals, pharmaceutical factories, blood centers, gene centers, etc.

Other related industries, such as chemical factories, laboratories, and logistics centers, also need slip joint-type cold room panels for insulation
