    Question for the Old Timers. (Ref Early Cold Stores?)



    A good Friend and learned member of our Industry has just asked a question.
    To which I felt some of our older guys may be able to help?

    Early Cold Store Insulation was a form of Cork Layers clad in a Asbestos Board.
    Which Had a Grey and Black stippled Finish.
    What was that Board / Finish called?

    It used to be a really common Finish.
    Thanks Guys!
    Grizzly.

    I think it was called glazed asbestos, could be wrong, memory is not what it was.
    Maybe working too close to old cold store walls!!!!

    Thanks BG.
    I think there is a trade name for it?
    Hopefully some others haven't stood as close to the walls as you and I?

    I seem to remember it being known as stippleglaze. That might have been a trade name though.

    But thanks all the same.
