Modular cold rooms are becoming the preferred choice for preserving perishable products. Because of their versatility, flexibility, energy efficiency, high level of customisation, and portability, they have found applications across different industries. If you are looking for facilities that can fulfil your need for small to medium-sized cold storage, then a modular cold room is the perfect solution. 

Why Are Modular Cold Rooms Important 

Modular cold rooms are the future of cold storage. Built on-site with a high level of customisation, modular cold rooms can help your business meet small to medium cold storage needs.  This has made them useful in hospitality, retail and supermarkets, horticulture and floriculture, pharmaceuticals, dairy, seafood, food processing, meat processing, and other speciality applications. 

There’s more to it. 

Modular cold storage solutions ensure the right temperature and humidity levels, extending the shelf-life and maintaining the quality of the food items. With the right racking solutions and pallet systems, you can make effective utilization of space in modular cold rooms. 

Additionally, since the temperature is maintained at lower levels, the risk of microbial growth is significantly minimised, keeping the food items safe. 

Factors You Need to Consider When Making a Choice 

Here are some factors that you may need to consider when choosing a modular cold room for your business. 

  • Identify the purpose of the modular cold room and the items or products you want to store. This will help you figure out what technical features are critical for your needs. For instance, you need to be clear about capacity, temperature range, humidity levels, etc. 
  • Consider if the chosen modular cold room is durable and sturdy. It should also be easy to maintain and clean.
  • Check the type of refrigeration system used including compressor and evaporator. The choice of refrigerant as well as the energy efficiency of your compressor can have a direct impact on your energy bills and cost savings
  • Make sure the prefabricated components of the modular cold room are food-safe, eco-friendly, and fire-rated. Additionally, the components should be easy to assemble, so the installation time is reduced. 
  • Look for additional features or accessories being provided by the manufacturer. For instance, alarm systems, safety valves, electronic controls, temperature regulation and recording, lighting, insulation for doors, etc.
