Brew Caves® are constructed of prefabricated, precision-formed, modular panels designed for accurate, rapid field assembly. Brew Caves® are test assembled at the factory for quality assurance.
Drawings and Instructions
Each Brew Cave® includes a set of installation instructions and a lay-out drawing. All panels have a panel identification number corresponding with the lay-out drawing to facilitate rapid and accurate field erection.
Each panel consists of inner and outer metal skins, a 4″ insulation core, and equipped with cam-action locking devices. The locking devices are operable from inside the Brew Cave®. A hex wrench to operate these cams is supplied. Press-fit plug buttons are provided to seal the wrench holes after assembly is complete. The Brew Cave’s® construction is approved by the National Sanitation Foundation International and shall bear the NSF® Seal of Approval.
Panels are connected to one another by placing the tongue of the insulation core of one panel into the groove of the core insulation of the adjacent panel. The resultant tongue and groove joint is sealed at both sides by double barreled NSF® approved gaskets. In order to avoid future swelling and mold formation, no wood is used in the manufacture of the tongue and groove panel profile.
Floor screeds are provided for all floorless Brew Caves®. These screeds are vinyl, and have NSF® approved cove both inside and out.
Standard metal finish of the panels for interior or exterior walls and ceilings is black stucco embossed galvanized steel. In addition to our standard black stucco embossed metal finish, U.S. Cooler now offers over 20 different smooth metal colors for the exterior of your next Brew Cave®. When designing your Brew Cave® project, you can now design your walk-in to blend in or become the focal point of your room.
