“Our recipes haven’t changed over the years, but through technology advancements many things became easier.”
A. Hirschhuber, owner of the Bergkäserei Zillertal.
Quality and reliability was particularly important to the head of the Bergkäserei Zillertal during the furnishing of the ripening rooms. The cheese farm, which has been family-owned and operated since 1921, produces 800 tons of finest mountain cheese annually.
The two newly constructed ripening rooms with a floor-space of 700 m² and a height 6 m should meet the highest demands. “We simply wanted to be technically fully up to date. Also with the aim of complying with all current and future EU policy guidelines”, is how Mr. Hirschhuber justified the decision to utilize the panel system from Hydewa.
“There is no other provider with this vast range of experience.”
The structured FRP wall panels have been mounted in the ripening room as a self-supporting system. The advantage of this is:
There are no connection points required to the facade. Because the building facade “shifts” over the course of time, joint cracks could develop for systems which are connected to the wall – these cracks could lead to the formation of condensation water. In the fully self-supporting system from Hydewa this is excluded.
In order to improve the effectiveness of the Hydewa wall and ceiling system to an even greater degree, an innovative hard 2-K joint material was utilized, which provides the advantage that no mould can develop.
In addition, soft joints which are incorporated at a distance of 10-15 meters were also used.
