Storage Temperature Information and Cold Room Specs
Generally most fridge products should be kept at 4 degrees centigrade. However, it is important to factor in the door area and how much the temperature can flux if the door is opened regularly. We are able to advise on systems to mitigate temperature fluctuations during use through careful design and other systems.
Flooring – When it comes to flooring level and smooth flooring including tiles can be used if the temperatures don’t go below 0 degrees centigrade. For walk-in freezers and blast freezers special flooring is needed. Some lager freezers may also require some form of heated entrance area to stop that freezing over and becoming a slip hazard.
Doors – Hinged or sliding doors are available depending on the size of the cold room and the planned use. Sliding doors are best if pallet trucks are likely to be bringing in goods. Freezer doors must have heating elements to stop them from icing up. All doors come with emergency internal handles.
Fittings – We can provide a wide range of bespoke fittings from racking and wall-mounted hooks to shelving units and more.
Roofing/Ceilings – we provide hygienic roofing that is installed to prevent water dripping in the doorway and causing ice. Lighting can be fitted into the ceiling with sealed switches and power supplies built into the wall.
Chillers and freezers have an enormous range of applications. These spaces can be created to fit most locations and buildings of any size. Stable temperatures mean food, drinks, chemicals or medicines can be kept at scale for as long as required. From a small chiller at a microbrewery to a large scale food factory storage area we have it covered.
Modular Temperature Controlled Cold Room
This type of cold room is common to many types of business from retail to warehouse storage, labs, and a range of other businesses that need to store products or samples in a temperature-controlled environment. We are able to supply and install modular temperature-controlled spaces to fit most locations and building types.
Blast freezing is a very effective method of storing food and other things. The blast freezer will pass air around the items and high speed; this freezes them far faster than conventional freezing. The rapidity of the freezing process means smaller ice crystals are formed which in turn means less damage to the product being frozen. Blast freezing is perfect for large scale food storage but can also have applications in labs where ingredients can be damaged by slower freezing. We are able to advise and fit blast freezers for a range of applications.
