How to select your cold room
Size: You can choose any size you like, but to make the room cheaper we recommend that you choose your sizes in even numbers (for example: rather choose 2.4 x 2.4 x 2.4mH, instead of 2.5 x 2.5 x 2.5mH). The longest roofs are 5m long, so when your room is 10m long, you will need two roofs of 5m each. For this, you will need roof supports that hang from an overhead structure. So if your room is longer/wider than 5m you will have to keep in mind that you will need an overhead structure or roof to hang the roof supports from.
Panel thickness: Because of climate change we don’t make use of 75mm panels for cold rooms anymore. We recommend that clients make use of 100mm panels for cold rooms as the refrigeration units won’t have to work as hard. This also ensures that you use less electricity – something we don’t have too much of these days, and it doesn’t come very cheap either.
Doors: Swing or hinged door. This is the cheapest option and normally works 100%. It is also the most durable. Sliding door. These are recommended when you will move large quantities of stock in and out of the room, don’t have space for a swing door to open (like in a small kitchen), or if you will make use of a forklift inside the room. Slam on the glass door. These are normally used in liquor stores, and close on the outside of the cold room on the panel itself. They tend to wear out with time but is your cheapest glass door. Architrave glass door. This one is more expensive than the slam on the door, but looks nicer and are more durable. They come in a frame and close inside the frame. They also have lights in the frame. These are normally used in houses and chain stores.
Floors: Cold rooms above 2 degree don’t need floors and we don’t work them out with floors, so if you want a floor in your cold room, make sure that you specify it from the start.
Refrigeration:This is the most crucial part of the cold room. Make sure that you tell us what you are going to use the room for because the refrigeration gets worked out according to that so that you can be sure that you will get exactly what you need. For example, if you say you will use the room for keeping cold milk cold we work out the refrigeration for that purpose. If you forget to tell us that more than half the milk will actually come in warm, the refrigeration won’t work because it won’t be strong enough. However if you tell us that you going to put in warm milk, we will make sure that the refrigeration is strong enough for that purpose. We do it like this to make sure that you don’t pay more than you need to pay, as the refrigeration gets more expensive the bigger it gets. It is also crucial to tell us how long the pipe run will be (how far the outside unit is going to stand from the cold room), so we can work out your quotation accordingly. It is not advisable to make your pipe run longer than 15m.
