Thermocontainer - a special box in which all the conditions inherent in this cellar.

One of the options - thermal storage chest for vegetables

One option - termolar for storing vegetables

This box can be mobile, ie it can be moved to a convenient location on the balcony , and may stationary, built between the walls.

1 - This enclosure box.It may be made of plywood, chipboard or boards.

2 - The second layer is insulation - as it uses the foam foil or foam, packed in several layers .

3 - additional warming will be an air gap between the insulation and the inner compartment.

4 - drawer for vegetables with vents.

5 - between the inner box and the bottom of the housing establishes a secure, well-insulated heater.

Such cold box is designed, mainly , for potatoes or other root crops.The optimum temperature for storage is between 3 and 7 degrees Celsius, which achieve in the conditions of the Russian winters on the unheated balcony is not possible without additional heating storage, and therefore set the heater with moderate power.

In summer the heat insulation, on the contrary, retain cool temperatures inside the box.If necessary, it can be even lower, placing inside ice in airtight containers or packaging.

The installation of this cellar is no big deal, and if the house has tools and material for its production, it can be collected in one day.

Tools and materials

for producing such a cold box-cellar, depending on the selected design and sizes, materials needed:

  • thick plywood or particle board for the outer casing.If the pantry is stationary, then this material will be needed for the front wall and the top cover of the product.
  • For internal drawer can be used not thick boards or plywood.
  • Wooden sticks for the frame structure, which is fixed sheathing material.
  • Insulation - foam , foam or other dense materials.
  • electric heater.As it is quite possible to use infrared film , since it power would be sufficient to achieve the desired temperature.For a small amount of container may be suitable even ordinary lamp 40 or 60 watts, but in this case it is desirable to establish its control bulbs.
  • bridging tr to I control the temperature in the cellar.
  • to assemble all materials to the overall design must be purchased screws, hinges for securing the lid, nails, anchors for permanent buildings, possibly metal angles needed.
  • Polyurethane foam for fastening together sheets of foam.It also can serve as insulation, fill it if the space between the two layers of plywood, having made so homemade sandwich panel.
  • From tools you need to have on hand jigsaw or hacksaw, pliers, screwdriver , screwdriver, hammer, drill and drill various sizes for wood and, if necessary, for concrete.

  • bars may be secured to each other using metal parts.
  • bottom should be elevated above the floor of the balcony, so to him fixed, closer to the middle, two bars, which will not only create a cushion of air, but also give the structure rigidity .
  • Further, insulation is installed.It cuts out the size of which corresponds to the perimeter of the plane between the bars.Thermal insulation should have a thickness equal to the size of the bar.For insulation between the bars, and there was no cold bridges caused cracks should be filled with foam.
  • At the bottom is fixed not thick plywood, which will close the heater.Top her set one of heaters.Due to its small thickness and operating safety boxes for a good fit infrared film.Create « warm pillow" and use the bulbs, but in this case the amount is reduced boxes, as on top of them it is necessary to install another one grating bottom.
  • then all internal plane will not superfluous oblitsevat foiled polyethylene foam.If the bulb is used for heating, the bottom-grill polyethylene can not be closed.
  • gap between the lid and the box frame, on the side where the hinges will be installed should also be covered by an elastic polyethylene foam.After you install the cover strip of insulating material is fixed braces both to the box and the lid.

Construction cellar under the balcony

  • pit under the cellar room should have a depth just above human height.If the height of the room is included the distance between the floor and the soil surface, then dig have a lot less, but will need to remove most of the plate located under the balcony.
