Cold Rooms - A hot investment!

cold roomsThe storing of perishable goods is a topic that all industries need to pay attention to. Trying to store masses of perishable goods which need optimum temperatures can be a little difficult without the space or, more importantly, the right equipment.

Standard fridges and freezers just are not sufficient in storing large quantities and so cannot come up to scratch in many industries. One solution which does tick all of the boxes is cold room storage.

The idea of a cold room is similar to that of a household fridge/freezers but on substantially larger scale and with added benefits! Cold stores, like its domestic cousin, are a temperature controlled room which allows foods and other items to be stored within pre-programmed settings. They can come in many forms covering both internal rooms and external storage units.

Where are cold rooms used?

Cold rooms can be used within many industries – not just as meat storage units as many of us would imagine. From dairy products, to floristry - keeping your roses as fresh as a daisy – and even pharmaceutical products. They are available in a variety of sizes depending on individual requirements. With the option for ‘walk in’ cold rooms and pre-designed shelving or railings, products can be easily reached making them very convenient storage spaces - even during the dreaded stock taking day that haunt many companies. They can also offer secure locking, ideal for external storage units to maximise protection. See the video below to view what a walk in cold room may look like!

Given the size and potential cost of cold rooms, many companies, including CRS – Mobile Cold Storage, now offer a leasing option for such equipment. This gives back the responsibility to the equipment provider meaning that any faults with the equipment are rectified directly by the provider. This could offer an excellent way to reduce costs. This also means that cold rooms can be leased during times of high demand, rather than paying for equipment to sit redundantly awaiting a busier period within the year. Thus potentially reducing expenditure, which can only business figures!

For further information on cold storage options, in including leasing, please visit the website of CRS- Mobile Cold Storage, or contact the team directly on 0800 085 22998 to discuss your bespoke requirements.
