A cold room is typically a man-made room that has a lower than average temperature, also referred to as a walk-in fridge or freezer. A cold room is usually used for the storage of perishable items so as to prolong their shelf life and prevent spoiling.
What are the benefits of a cold room?
Cold rooms offer users a range of benefits, they provide an adjustable temperature gage, allowing you to modify the temperature from chilled to freezing, depending on your requirements. Additionally, cold rooms are airtight, this means they are protected against any extreme weather conditions that could cause unusual climates.
Cold rooms are available in a variety of sizes, we can help find the most suitable size and shape for your property and requirements. A cold room that has been specifically designed to your requirements can also lead to space-saving as they offer a more effective storage solution than that of multiple refrigerators and freezers.

Do I need a cold room?
If you have the space a cold room is recommended as a cost-effective and highly efficient refrigeration solution. Cold rooms are ideal for a catering enterprise, restaurants or any facility that requires an ample amount of cold storage space.
Cold rooms offer an efficient means of stock storage and distribution, providing accessible shelving for ease of organisation and stock rotation.
How does a cold room work?
A cold room works similarly to that of a domestic refrigerator, or freezer. The room is well insulated, this is vital in preventing any warm, humid air from seeping in. The room utilises cooling units, air external to the cold room is drawn into the unit where it is cooled using refrigerant chemicals, before being pushed back into the room where it would circulate, lowering the room’s temperature.
The cold room’s temperature is controlled and monitored using the thermostat, if the temperature rises too high, or falls too low, a signal will be sent to the cooling unit and it will adjust accordingly.

Modular cold room
Modular cold rooms are commonly found within the food industry and are constructed using panels and insulation materials that are food safe. They are usually distributed in a flat pack format, making for a quick, seamless installation.
Combi cold room
Combi cold rooms possess separate internal temperature zones, a chilled zone, and a freezer zone. The chilled temperature zone has a temperature range of between 2 and 12 degrees centigrade. The freezer zone’s temperature range can reach as little as -22 degrees centigrade. This type of cold room is suitable for those who wish to store a variety of food products and require a multitude of temperatures.
Walk-in cold room
A walk-in cold room is a relatively large-scale storage facility that, as the name suggests, is large enough so the user can walk inside. This refrigerated storage room can take the form of both modular and combi. This type of cold room is suitable when the number of products that require chilled storage exceeds the capacity of a smaller, cabinet-sized chiller.
