Transport and insulation made easy with thermohauser
EPP and EPS – two materials that ensure temperature-stability
The thermohauser insulation boxes keep the temperature of the food safe and stable - even when the boxes are used for long distances or are standing still for a while. In a temperature range between -40 °C (for chilled goods) and +120 °C (for ready-to-be-served food) the boxes can be used without further thought.
Both types of boxes are made of foamed plastic that is safe to use under common food law. They are characterised by the fact that they are extremely highly-insulating, while their low weight makes them perfect carrying aids.
EPP boxes are made of expanded polypropylene, the premium material of the thermohauser series. It originates from the automotive sector and stands for durability, elasticity, and high break-resistance. The material is completely recyclable. After use, EPP-Thermoboxes can either be washed out with running hot water or cleaned in the dishwasher. EPP is also tasteless and acid-stable. Thus, the EPP transport boxes are designed for a long service-life with regular use in the food sector, even in different temperature ranges.
EPS boxes are made of expanded polystyrene, the common trade name is Styrofoam. Regarding their insulating effect and food safety, they are in almost no way inferior to EPP boxes. However, the more brittle and sensitive material is much less designed for durability. EPS boxes are the cheaper alternative and are used much more frequently in the disposable sector (for example, when shipping food).

EPP and EPS thermal boxes are used in diverse areas. In the purchase of fresh and refrigerated goods for restaurants, for example, as well as in the delivery of snacks and lunches by local bakeries and butchers.
