In today’s hospitality, restaurant, catering and foodservice industries, quality commercial refrigeration is essential. Purchasing food products in bulk or via wholesale is a great way to save money – but only if you have adequate storage. And during the fast-paced, high pressure food preparation stages, food needs to be accessible. Most importantly, your goods need to be kept cool – maintaining food safety as well as freshness and flavour.

Walk-in coolers and walk-in freezers are the best solution because they can be modified for most applications – whether they’re used indoors, outdoors, in basements, or as part of a retail store. They’re ideal for kitchens, cafés and restaurants, as well as bars, clubs, resorts and on-site functions or events – keeping beverages, frozen goods and produce cool and fresh.

If you’re seeking a refrigeration or storage solution for your business or retail space, read on to discover the many benefits of installing a walk-in cold storage unit.

Flexible size and storage space

One of the biggest advantages of having a walk-in fridge or freezer is the size. You can choose between a number of different size options for your cold-storage unit – but all will have ample storage space for your goods and produce. With plenty of space available, you’re able to spend less time on restocking – and save money by purchasing in bulk, knowing you have plenty of storage space available.

Modern refrigeration systems

With today’s modern insulation and technology, walk-in fridges and freezers provide reliable, air-tight seals and temperature regulation controls. Most can be customised to suit your specific needs – ensuring your goods and produce are kept in a controlled environment, and kept fresh at all times.

Improved accessibility and organisation

With a walk-in fridge or freezer, it’s easy to find and access the goods and produce you need. These cold storage units are ideal for kitchens, cafés and restaurants where food products need to be found and selected quickly and easily. With the installation of shelving units, you can make even better use of your space, improving kitchen organisation and saving you time.

Enhanced safety features

Heavy duty hinges, inside door releases and deadbolt locking handles are further features which make walk-in cold storage a great choice for cafés, restaurants and kitchens. That way, any valuable or expensive stock – including alcoholic beverages – can be kept safe from theft. And if one of your staff should find themselves accidentally locked in to the unit, they can release the door from the inside. If you have any other special requirements, customisations are available to suit the needs of your business.
