Different Types of Cold Rooms
There are many types of Cold Rooms available. Here is an overview of some of them.
Modular Cold Rooms
Modular Cold Rooms are made up of standard sized panels, all of which easily lock together. They’re supplied flat packed making it easier to unload and are much less space consuming. Instead of a custom built room (which can become expensive!) they are ideal for commercial sized refrigeration rooms for the end customers, they offer the perfect tailored solution to perfectly fit into the space you have available.
Available in stainless steel as well as the standard galvanised steel sheet with food safe polyester, the panels contain highly efficient insulation materials which are encased within the surfaces. They are easily cleaned and are made from accredited food safe materials.
Although they can chill or freeze at any temperature range, Barnsley refrigeration use 3 main ones when supplying modular cold rooms. They are:
Chiller (between 2 and 12C): Used for dairy, vegetables, prepared meals etc
Medium (between -2 and 5C): Used for fresh meat and fish
Freezer (down to -22C): Used for frozen goods of all kinds
Modular Cold Rooms are not only for storing food, even though this is the most common type of stock. They can also be used for other non-edible goods such as chemicals and medicine supplies.
Barnsley Refrigeration’s Modular Cold Rooms do so much more than just keep stock cold. They also include specialised design features that cover many aspects including compliance with food safety legislation, personnel safety and easier use.
Combi Cold Rooms
Different types of stock require different temperatures, especially for those businesses that deal with the catering industry. Some need freezers, some merely to chill, which could mean either multiple cold rooms or one that has separate temperatures. Should you be restricted on space or if the space you have available is narrow and long, Combi Cold Rooms are ideal as they take up less overall space than multiple cold rooms.
The Combi Cold Rooms are quite simply one room divided into two, the ‘chiller’ side and ‘freezer’ side. The main access into the Combi Cold Room would be through the chiller side, then there is a door between the two Cold Rooms to access the ‘freezer’ side. Each one is controlled by two individual refrigeration units.
Barnsley Refrigeration have a varied range of Combi Cold Rooms for you to choose from for all different types of storage volumes and various splits between the two zones and each one has 4 tier shelves.
Walkin Cold Rooms
Quite simply, a Walkin Cold Room is just what it says on the label! You can walk into the room. No crouching down or awkwardly bending to get to something you’ve stored at the back! You can enter into the room with your arms stretched high. The Modular and Combi Cold Room’s above for example are Walkin Cold Rooms. A cabinet refrigerator you open the door and the shelves are immediately in front of you. A Walkin Cold Room has shelves on either side of the room so you can actually walk into the room and then the shelving is to the side, away from the door.
When you’re short of space to store your stock or it exceeds cabinet volumes, this is where a Walkin Cold Room becomes a necessity.
Made to Measure Cold Rooms
If Modular or Combi Cold Rooms aren’t quite suitable for what you require, Barnsley Refrigeration can provide one that’s made-to-measure. All we need is the dimensions that customers require in multiples of 15cm and we can custom build a Cold Room to those specific dimensions, giving a greater range of size options.
Industrial Cold Rooms
Industrial Cold Rooms are used for storing a much higher volume of stock such as pallets and bulk quantities. The other Cold Rooms cater for personal access and maybe a small trolley, Industrial ones have a lot more space which can involve access for vehicles such as forklift trucks. They have a different design feature than the rest to accommodate larger doors and pallet racking for the access of vehicles and the internal storage.
