While the awareness in Poland regarding the necessity to protect the environment and recycle waste grows, an increasing number of waste sorting plants are being constructed. European Union directives require Poland to create new standards in waste management systems including the management of plastic waste. The construction of numerous waste sorting plants is aimed at preventing waste proliferation or limiting its amount, which results in mitigating its negative impact on the natural environment. Waste sorting installations of all sizes are capable of receiving approximately 1 million tonnes of waste a year, and their construction is supervised by local government. A typical waste sorting plant is a process line used to segregate waste to be stored or to reclaim valuable reusable resources.
Ocmer, as the winner of the "Przedsiębiorstwo Fair Play 2012" competition for several years, has been involved in the assembly and delivery light steel structures on the domestic market. We observe all construction standards and regulations, develop designs, implement modern technologies and offer optimum solutions.
Within the framework of the order placed by Altvater (the largest recipient of municipal waste in the northern part of the Wielkopolska region), Ocmer created a suitable design and constructed the hall steel structure. The scope of implementation included delivery and assembly of a steel structure of a total area amounting to 1320m2. The hall load-bearing wall structure includes cold-formed steel sections with trapezoid metal panels galvanised on both sides attached to them.
The external part is covered with a polyester paint in a colour selected from the Ocmer standard colour table, and the internal part of the metal panels is covered with a grey priming coat. The walls are encased to the height of +35 cm and the casing is based on a concrete plinth. Insulation is provided by means of glass wool panels of thickness 200 mm (or 100 mm thick mats) with U=0.28 W/m2K factor (U=0.43 W/m2K). The insulating boards are installed on the trapezoidal metal panels and wall spandrel beams.
