What is a Cold Room?

It might sound like a simple question, but there are actually many types of built-in refrigeration.

Essentially, a cold room is a walk-in facility which controls its internal temperature using refrigerants. This is exactly the same as a domestic refrigerator, except on a larger scale. These rooms can be used to maintain temperatures either above or below freezing, depending on the type of storage required. This capability is extremely useful in the world of food preparation.

Cold rooms can utilise different refrigerants including CO2 (an option available for the GC-NEXGEN range).

What Advantages does a Cold Room Provide?

Cold rooms offer a wide range of advantages over standard cooling apparatus. For starters, your system can be built to specifically address your individual requirements. This keeps running costs down and safeguards convenience.

The sheer scale of a cold room makes it the best choice for kitchens or other facilities where large amounts of product must be stored at a specific temperature.

It is also much more convenient for workers to use cold rooms than traditional fridges and freezers, particularly when the door will be opened and closed often. Cold rooms are designed in such a way that minimises heat and moisture ingress. They are an essential feature for commercial kitchen refrigeration.
