The Benefits of Custom-Building Your Cool Room | Cold-Rite

Commercial cool rooms have transformed the way we can store perishable, temperature sensitive goods like food, beverages, chemicals, medical and pharmaceutical goods and more. A walk-in fridge allows you to keep a large supply of items at a consistent temperature while easily keeping track of stock with long visible shelves.

Of course, how you need your cool room to be designed and function will depend on what it’s being used for and the space it’s occupying. A bottle shop will obviously have different requirements to a pharmaceutical cold storage solution. Custom building your cool room is an ideal way of ensuring you have the best system possible for your needs. Below are some advantages to custom building your cool room.

Energy Efficiency

A cool room that is built according to the dimensional outlay of your particular space ensures the commodities inside are cooled as efficiently as possible. A custom build looks at what you’re storing and how much. Refrigeration technicians will then design and build to cool room to keep the commodities at the right temperature while avoiding wasting energy on cooling empty space.

Application Specific Design

Cool rooms often have to meet case by case demands on the design. The best example is cool rooms for storing beverages at a bottle shop. This often involves multiple glass doorways for customers to pick up beverages with another large walk in door where workers can restock and customers can pick up cartons. This can require thick entryways spring-loaded clasps, and composite wall panels to keep the space cool.

Tailored Airflow

A cool room can be designed to optimise airflow as well as customising size and shape. Cool rooms can be fitted with the correct refrigerant system to meet the particular needs you may have. For example, you may not need a unit that is constantly working at a freezing temperature to keep your products frozen in a freezer room. Depending on the products being stored, you can adjust the humidity so you have the option to keep the room dry and cool.

You can also adjust the spacing between the shelves to provide unhampered circulation so cold currents with every corner of the cool room. This ensures uniform product cooling and eliminates potential warm spots. Wire mesh shelves with an epoxy coating allows more air to flow around.
