Benefits of a Cold Room
There are many benefits of a Cold Room. We have listed some of the main benefits below.
Large Storage Capacity
You can put more things in a walk in cold room than in a standard commercial refrigeration. They are also good for bulk buying and allows for better organisation and distribution.
The large storage capacity is a lot more convenient and allows for easy access.
Temperature control allows for a range of uses, including food and chemicals.
Changing the temperature also prolongs the shelf life of fruit and veg and avoids the risk of food poisoning.
Secure and Reliable
A lockable cold room is super reliable and having one gives you the ability to keep everything in it chilled and protected.
Large volumes of stored goods are much safer from theft and environmental damage.
Not only are they super easy to clean, but they are much easier to access, especially if they are well located. For example, with a walk-in chiller, putting items away becomes a much easier process, especially when you are dealing with large stock amounts.
Safe and Hygienic
Cold rooms give you the opportunity to keep perishable products chilled or frozen to slow down their deterioration. Having a safe and protected walk in cold room is a business requirement for any company in the food business.
Energy-Efficient and Cost Effective
An insulated cold room is much more energy efficient than powering a load of smaller refrigerators and freezers. This makes a cold room a more cost-effective option. Besides budgeting benefits, cold rooms allow you to keep larger volumes of food in great condition and can also continue running in a power outage.

It is possible to have a bespoke height, however these are generally more costly than a standard freezer room.
How Often Should Walk-In Fridges Be Cleaned?
We would stress to clients that they shouldn’t be using harsh chemicals as they could react and cause extreme damage to the metal surface of the walk-in. We would suggest that you give your walk-in fridge a clean once a month, removing all boxes and cages to clean it properly.
Do Walk-In Coolers Need Ventilation?
A condenser needs a well-ventilated area to do its job. If you do need to keep your walk in cooler in a closed space, you can additionally use a fan to provide additional air through the area to help out with cooling.
How Big Should a Walk-In Cooler Be?
Walk-in Cooler rooms can be any size from ‘5×5′ and as large as needed. The standard sizes for industry use are around 6′ x 6′ x 6’ and are by far our most popular design.
Can Walk In Freezers Be Outside?
The short answer is Yes. The seamless construction of a walk-in freezer allows the unit to be set outside without the use of a roof cap or any other type of expensive protection. You won’t have to worry about weather or leakage, as the walk in is completely weatherproof and requires little to no assembly.
How Do Freezer Rooms Work?
Freezer rooms works in a very similar way that a domestic refrigerator works. Insulating an area and using refrigerant-equipped cooling units to lower the temperature inside to the specific level you require this is usually done by a thermostat.
What Temperature Should a Walk-in Freezer Be?
When deciding the temperature of a walk-in freezer room, the main factor that you should consider is how much the door is going to be open and closed. For most frozen products, the FDA suggests keeping the freezer set to a temperature between 0 and -25 degrees.
What are Cold Room Panels?
Cold Room Panels are used for climate-controlled premises or weather-conditioned sites, whether that be positive or negative temperature.
This kind of panel would usually be available in smooth, striated, or a micro-striated finish.
What is the Correct Temperature for a Cold Room?
The correct temperature for a cold room can vary from -22C – 12C.
A chiller cold room operates at 2C – 12C. If you are using the cold room to store consumables used in a few days time, the temperature will be between -2C and 5C.
For those looking to store frozen food goods, you will need a walk in freezer. The temperature for the cold storage freezer is between -18C and -22C.
