Things to consider

Although a lot of companies offer cold rooms, few talk about the installation process, so you may end up with installers coming to your premises at inconvenient times, making a mess, or not following proper safety standards.

Making sure you purchase your cold room from a certified supplier and installer such as fridgefreezerdirect.co.uk/cold-rooms/integrated-cold-rooms can save you problems later on. Plus, you get the added benefit of being able to take advantage of 20 years of experience in commercial refrigeration to ensure you are getting the best advice when considering different cooling solutions.

The installation

The best cold room installers will contact you prior to installation to create an installation schedule with you, to ensure the installation doesn’t disrupt the day-to-day running of your business and you can have an estimate as to how long it will take until the installation is up and running. You should always check that an installer is fully qualified and capable of carrying out the installation as cold rooms are incredibly complex machines and should only ever be installed by a specialist.

When qualified engineers arrive to install your new cold room, they will not only fully fit and set up the refrigeration system, but also make sure the insulated structure has been properly fitted and that the system is set up to an appropriate power source. They will also check that everything works properly and that any mess made during the installation process has been properly cleaned so you don’t need to worry about a thing!

Due to the size and complexity of cold room storage, it will need to be set up on site and times will vary depending on the size of the unit you have bought. Small units can usually be installed in less than a day, however, larger units, such as walk-in fridges and freezers, may take longer. Your installers will discuss all of this with you at the outset to ensure you fully understand the process.
