Walk in Coolers

Written on February 8, 2024   By   in Blog

Walk in coolers are insulated boxes with cooling systems that are used to keep fresh and frozen food cool. They are commonly used in restaurants, bars, and supermarkets. They are available in a wide range of sizes and styles. They are also used in hospitals and labs to store medications and other supplies. They are designed to withstand frequent opening and closing of the door and have a refrigeration system that is built in.

They are made of metal panels that come in different types of materials. Each material has an R-value that determines its insulating abilities. Most commercial coolers are insulated with either extruded polystyrene or foamed-in-place closed-cell urethane insulation. The R-value of the insulation is measured and rated by its resistance to conductive heat flow. The higher the R-value, the more insulated the cooler is.

Maximizing Cold Storage: Advantages of Walk-in Coolers

The panels that make up a walk in cooler are sometimes referred to as the “skin” and it’s important to choose one with a high corrosion-resistant finish. Aluminum is a common choice because it’s inexpensive and easy to clean, but if heavy traffic will be on the cooler then a stainless steel skin is best. The latter option is more expensive but has the advantage of being stronger and less corrosive than aluminum.

The floor of a walk in cooler can be made from a variety of materials depending on the use. For example, if the cooler is being used in a restaurant then it’s important that the floor is durable enough to handle heavy foot traffic. Some manufacturers offer advanced flooring options like textured stainless steel and galvanized aluminum.
