Commercial cold rooms is a must for the catering industry or organization concerned with large-scale food supply. They provide vital storage at the optimum temperature to keep the food fresh, limit waste and to meet the required safety standards.
Commercial cold rooms, however, are not only limited to the items that can be eaten, because they have broader use. They are required to keep medical or laboratory supply at the right temperature and is also used by plant and flower suppliers.
Here is a guide to the type of available solutions and business-specific features to look for when choosing excellent coolrooms for your business.
Combi Cold Rooms
Some businesses, especially in the catering industry, need to keep their stock at different temperature ranges (chilled or frozen, for example). The solution is either to have a separate cold room or have a combi room: a combination room with separate temperature zones inside. These combi rooms take up less space than having a separate cold room, so is perfect when space is at a premium.
Industrial Cold Room
Industrial cold rooms can be broad as they are designed to deal with a much larger number of items. While combi and modular rooms are used primarily for personnel access, industrial cold rooms provide solutions for bulk storage. Industrial rooms might need access to vehicles, such as forklift trucks, to transport goods in or out. They also may need different design features, such as pallet racking or wider doors for different access and storage requirements.
Choosing a Cold Room
When choosing a solution to keep the cold and freezing stocks, it is important first to decide whether you need a walk-in cold room, or whether the number of items is not enough for this. If this happens, a large commercial refrigerator could provide the answer and be a cheaper alternative, also take up less space.
