Focused on sustainability, cost-effectiveness, and customization, LiteCold modular cold rooms present a forward-thinking solution to meet the cold storage needs of diverse industries. 

Let us delve deeper to understand more about LiteCold modular cold rooms and why they are a must for small to medium cold storage needs. 

What Is a Cold Storage Room?

A cold storage room or warehouse is a facility designed to maintain desired environmental conditions to keep temperature-sensitive products safe. The main aim of cold storage is to maintain the perishable products at an optimum temperature to stop them from spoiling and thus extend their shelf life. These facilities are used to preserve perishable products such as food grains, fruits, vegetables, dairy, meat, seafood, etc. in a fresh state by maintaining the required temperature and humidity levels within the storage system.  

There are different types of cold storage systems available depending on business and product requirements. 

  • Modular cold rooms
  • Display cum cold rooms
  • Walk-in freezers and chillers
  • Step-in freezers and chillers
  • Multi-commodity cold warehouses
  • High RH (relative humidity) and low RH cold storage

Although, the choice of cold storage solutions depends on the type of products, temperature range,  and capacity, modular cold rooms have been specially designed for small to medium cold room requirements. Unsurprisingly, they are gaining rapid popularity for their affordability, quick installation, and versatile usability.

What Are Modular Cold Rooms?

As the focus on food safety and food wastage is increasing, there is a growing need for small to medium-sized cold rooms. These cold rooms are usually built on-site with a high level of customisation and can meet small to medium cold storage requirements.
