Handy Tips when Buying Cold Rooms

When you run a catering company or food business such as a restaurant or café, cold rooms are one of the most important pieces of equipment you can own. If you’re planning to start a catering or food company, a cold room will be an absolutely essential investment for your new business venture. With this in mind, we’ve put together some great tips to consider in order to make sure that you make the right choice.

Types of Cold Storage Rooms including Freezers, Chillers and Coldrooms

When choosing a cold room, it’s important to know which type you prefer as there are various types of cold and freezer rooms available including custom-designed rooms for your specific purpose.

When searching for a coldroom, chiller or freezer unit, you can choose from:

  • Standalone, walk-in cold rooms, cool rooms or freezers

  • Mounted coldroom, cool rooms & freezers which are permanently attached to the bed of a ute.
  • Built-in coldrooms, cool rooms freezer rooms
  • Commercial cold rooms or freezers with tempered glass display shelves etc.

Queensland Coldroom Manufacturers have a large range of commercial coldrooms, chiller units and freezers available for immediate delivery, or you can custom design a unit to your exact specifications.

How Much Space Do You Have?

Before you invest in a cold room, it’s important to check the amount of space available where you intend to install your equipment. You should always take the size of the allocated area into consideration when choosing a cold room, so you don’t end up purchasing one which is too large for the space that you have available. This might seem obvious, but you’d be surprised at how many business owners forget about measurements when they find a piece of equipment that they like!

At Queensland Coldroom Manufacturers we have coldrooms, chiller units and freezers from small party fridges to 20’x20’ container size and everything in between.

What features do you need in a coldroom?

When choosing a cold room, it’s important to take into account your specific storage needs and requirements.

  • Do need a lot of cold storage space?
  • Do you need walk-in or forklift access?
  • What is the optimal temperature for your stock?
  • Is your business mobile?
  • Do you need display capabilities?
  • What kind of shelving do you require?

Energy Efficiency

Considering that cold rooms and industrial freezers can use up a lot of energy, they can be rather expensive to utilise. Because of this, it’s vital to make a point of checking the energy rating of the equipment that you are purchasing and ensure that it is high, which means it will consume as little energy as possible in order to run effectively.

Queensland Coldroom Manufacturers’ coldrooms & freezer units are designed to be as energy efficient as possible. We utilise the latest in refrigeration technology, motors and insulation to ensure our rooms get cold quickly & stay cold all while minimising energy use.

A cold room is an essential piece of equipment that when chosen and maintained carefully, can last for years! Contact Queensland Coldroom Manufacturers today to discuss your cold storage needs. Call 1300 66 77 21.
