Stellar-employed field technicians
We hire and train our own technicians to achieve high-quality installation performance, superior cost efficiency and faster completion times. Our senior technicians develop advanced expertise in their disciplines, which is passed on in training newer technicians. And, our technicians are cross-trained for wall and roofing work so our crews can be flexible.
Stellar focuses on constructing a vapor barrier of uncompromising integrity. We install insulated panel walls, roofing, doors and ductwork to create an integrated structure for buildings that require temperatures as low as -40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Preventative Maintenance is the Key to Long-Lasting Freezer Floors
Frost Heave: The Silent Killer of Freezer Floors
Maximizing the lifespan of concrete freezer floors is crucial, but it's essential to highlight the need for regular preventive maintenance of the underfloor heating system. Neglecting this aspect can lead to detrimental consequences, such as frost formation in the sub-grade soils, which in turn can result in raised, cracked floors. Beyond the surface-level issues, these problems can give rise to safety hazards, operational disruptions, and even severe structural damage. Addressing frost heave promptly is paramount, as the longer it goes unattended, the greater the potential for escalating damage.
Insulated Metal Panel Ductwork
We install Insulated Metal Panel (IMP) ductwork for its significant benefits over traditional materials such as greater air quality, energy efficiency and durability. Most importantly, IMP walls promote food safety, providing a more sanitary finish that can easily be washed down and withstand harsh chemical cleaning. IMP walls also meet plant owners' needs for a more sanitary surface at floor and curb levels.
Insulated Metal Wall, Roof & Ceiling Panels
We install panels of virtually any size and thickness available in a wide range of colors, finishes, dimensions and a variety of other unique options with USDA-compliant finishes available in siliconized paint, Plastisol and Type 304 stainless steel. In the last five years, we’ve installed nearly 6 million square feet in insulated metal panels (IMPs). As the largest purchaser of IMPs in the U.S., we receive bulk pricing to remain cost competitive for our customers.
Stellar’s experts examine all aspects of our clients’ plant operations to determine the most appropriate door types and materials to recommend. We evaluate criteria and characteristics including:
