PortaFab's PortaMax 500TB facilitates the construction of self-supporting interior buildings, from cleanroom envelopes and wash-down rooms to temperature-controlled storage areas. Its self-supporting design distinguishes it from IMPs, which lack load-bearing capacity. This characteristic reduces the need for additional structural support and engineering, simplifying construction and minimizing costs.

The PortaMax 500TB is a thermally broken structural stud post that functions as the building columns to create freestanding prefabricated modular buildings for interior applications.

A two-piece stud with a thermal break in between, the PortaMax 500TB stud sections fasten together to form a thermally insulated frame. This frame then accepts a wall panel section on each side to create a cleanable wall surface/envelope.

The multi-piece stud construction allows for easy disassembly of the PortaMax 500TB stud to access the wall at any point while still maintaining structural integrity. This flexibility allows for seamless panel replacement, door and window installation, or configuration adjustments, a feature not found in tongue and groove panel connections or IMPs.

One side of the PortaMax 500TB stud features an electrical raceway and “snap-in” cover plate for running wiring and supply lines.

The PortaMax 500TB wall framing system is suitable for various needs in the food industry, offering self-supporting building solutions. Common applications range from temperature-controlled clean environments to wash-down areas, chill rooms, cold storage, packaging spaces, processing rooms, and USDA compliant cleanrooms.
