Signs Your Cold Room Needs a Service

Signs Your Cold Room Needs a Service

Are you unsure when your cold room requires a service? Here at MTCSS, we recognise the exact signs that mean your unit needs maintenance. Our staff has in excess of 50 years’ industry experience. We call on this to quickly solve any problems your cold storage facility has, but when does your cold room require servicing?

It is inefficient

If your bill is higher than normal, there is a good chance your cold room has a fault and needs servicing. This is unless there is a reasonable explanation like one of the doors was left open for too long during loading. That can lead to an increased bill as your cold room will need to work harder to maintain temperature because of the warmer air entering through the door.

Another sign your cold room is inefficient is if it cannot reach the correct temperature when it is completely full. If it can only reach the desired temperature with a few items in, then you need to get it serviced as soon as possible. No matter how empty or full it is, it should be able to reach the temperature you need your items to be stocked at.

Insulated curtains

If your room is inefficient we can replace or add insulation curtains to your cold room. They fit snug against the wall, ceiling and floor to stop air moving from one part of the room to the other. If they are torn or damaged, our new replacements can return your room to the peak efficiency that it received when the original curtains were installed.

Parts are broken or damaged

It is imperative that if you see any damage to your cold room, or if any parts break, you contact us.  Structural damage like a cracked wall or door will prevent the unit from working efficiently, while a door that can no longer close fully will see your bills increase rapidly. They are both signs your cold room needs a service. Other instances where you will need repairs are if your insulated curtains have ripped or if a handle has broken on your cold room door.

Below see the areas we can help with. We offer the repair and replacements of various parts:

  • Insulated Panels
  • Insulated Curtains
  • Doors
  • Tracks
  • Pressure Release Valve
  • Corner Trims

Improve the Efficiency of Your Cold Room

5 Tips to Improve the Efficiency of Your Cold Room

Are you struggling to efficiently run your cold room? At MTCSS we understand how costly this can be to your business. Formed in 2007, our staff have a combination of more than 50 years of industry related experience. This allows us to provide cold storage installations across numerous sectors. We know exactly what it takes to improve the efficiency of your cold room.

Regularly Clean Your Equipment

To work efficiently your cold room must be kept clean. The evaporator cells and condenser should be free of dust and other blockages which can restrict air output. These parts remove warm air from the room which helps to maintain its optimal temperature. If that is not possible the unit will have to work harder to compensate for a lack of air flow. This will lead to pricier bills and in the long run could cause breakdowns or damage to your room.

Repair Damage Immediately

Contact us immediately if you notice any cracks in your cold room or if you have any faulty parts. Structural damage can stop the room working efficiently. We have an after-sales maintenance service that is carried out by our fully-trained engineers. We can help if you come across any problems and are well placed to serve businesses all over the country.

To get in touch call us on 01886 833381 or email sales@mtcss.co.uk. Our team will be delighted to answer any questions you have. They can also arrange a maintenance visit.

Choose a Specialist Door

There are several types of cold room doors we offer. Each have a range of benefits such as being able to operate on rooms of varying temperatures.

  • Sliding – available in horizontal, vertical or automatic sliding designs they are perfect for when you are working in very little space
  • Hinged – ideal for walk-in freezers and rooms where forklift access is not required
  • Semi-Insulated Hinged Doors – perfect if you have rooms of a positive temperature or for use dividing areas of different purposes like between a processing area and your office

Choosing the correct door ensures your cold room is kept at its optimal temperature for the greatest amount of time possible.

Keep the Doors Closed

Anything that can negatively impact the temperature of your cold storage room must be avoided if possible. An open door will cause cold air to escape and warm air from the outside to replace it. From time to time the doors will need to be used but make sure you close it behind you. This means the unit will not have to work as hard to stabilise the temperature inside. Increased energy bills come as a result of an overworked cold room while its lifespan will be dramatically shortened too. Door alarms can help you to monitor if your doors are closed. They indicate if the doors are open for extended periods of time.

Insulated Curtains

To further prevent the loss of cold air you can use insulated curtains. Designed to fit snuggly between your walls, floor and ceiling they stop air flow from one section of the room to the other. This is ideal if you require your door to be open for a small amount of time if you have a goods delivery or if you are manoeuvring products from one room to another.

split and monoblock refrigeration system

What is the difference between Split and Monoblock refrigeration systems?

A refrigeration system is a unit which ensures that your goods are protected through the correct temperature flow, by eradicating heat and introducing cold air to ensure that the refrigerated contents are preserved efficiently.

If you are looking to implement a refrigeration system for your business, then you should understand the components of the system. These should include the following:

  • A thermostatic expansion valve, which is used to regulate the amount of refrigerant that reaches the evaporator
  • An evaporator, which removes unwanted heat away from all refrigerated goods
  • A capacity control system, which is used to regulate energy and power consumption
  • A compressor to ensure that heat vapour is compacted enough to be released with ease
  • A condenser that expels heat from the refrigerant, in order to cool the condensation within the refrigeration system and return the vapour back to liquid
  • A receiver, which works to preserve and seal the liquid vapour that is created, thus ensuring that a constant temperature is maintained

Although most refrigeration systems work the same and have almost the same components, there are a range of different refrigeration systems that you must consider when installing your industrial cold room. These include Split and Monoblock refrigeration systems, which are similar in many ways, although they do have an array of differences.

In this blog, we will answer any frequently asked questions, as well as establish the clear differences between Split and Monoblock refrigerated systems to ensure that you have all the information you need to invest in your own refrigerated unit.

Split refrigeration systems

A split refrigerant system consists of two separate units, which work together to remove hot air from the inside and replace with cooler air from the outside, thus creating the ideal temperature for your cold room.

Whilst split refrigeration systems can be effective, they are a lot more intricate than Monoblock refrigeration systems, therefore you would have to instruct an engineer to perform the installation and this can incur a substantial fee.

Monoblock refrigeration systems

In contrast to a split refrigeration system, Monoblock refrigeration units are combined and compact fixtures – making them ideal for when you have limited fitting room available. They can easily be fitted on to the ceiling or on a nearby wall in order to maximise space.

Here at MTCSS, we offer several high-quality Kide Monoblock systems that are ideal for industrial and commercial applications. These refrigeration systems are all made to fit in restricted spaces and are usually fitted on ceilings or walls to accommodate more space.  We currently stock the following Monoblock refrigeration systems:

  • The EMR KideRoof is a high-performance system intended for use in small spaces, where a small volume of goods needs to be refrigerated. It benefits from a thermostatic expansion valve and a hot gas defrost function.
  • The EMF KideRoof Centrifugal is also built for compact refrigeration and can be used for low to medium temperatures. This system includes a centrifugal fan, which is used to remove hot air and therefore avoids a build-up of condensation.
  • The EMB KideBlock is the perfect refrigeration system when a medium volume of goods need to be refrigerated. It benefits from a thermostatic expansion valve and is extremely efficient and waterproof, making it the ideal application for your cold room.
  • The EMC KideBlock Centrifugal is one of the latest Kide products. It offers a wide range of benefits and, thanks to its multi-functional abilities, it can expel defrosted water (via evaporation) whilst also steadily maintaining electronic control.

All of our refrigerant Monoblock systems are the ideal fit for any sized cold room, where the temperature-controlled preservation of goods is necessary. They can lead to improvements in productivity and profitability for the end-user and are a highly worthwhile investment.

5 Reasons to Invest in an Industrial Cold Room - MTCSSS

5 Reasons to Invest in an Industrial Cold Room

The Importance of Industrial Cold Rooms

If your organisation relies on high-quality refrigeration solutions to ensure that its products are always kept in the best possible condition, an industrial cold room may just be the ideal storage option for your needs. There are many clear benefits inherent in opting for an industrial cold room and MTcss, a team of refrigeration specialists with combined experience in the field stretching back over more than 50 years, is very well placed to guide you through these. Read on to find out why your business should be investing in an industrial cold room today.

 

  1. Enjoy Easy Temperature Control

Ordinary fridges and chest freezers – even higher-end products on relatively large scales – are often difficult to regulate and do not commonly offer the precision with which an industrial cold room can be controlled. Good cold rooms are often purpose-built and can be set to incredibly precise temperatures that will not change unless they are programmed to do so. They can be set up to hit lows of around minus thirty degrees celsius and highs of positive thirty degrees, meaning that they are highly flexible and perfect to be primed for the exact requirements of the products that are to be stored within them.

 

  1. Discover A Separate Secure Storage Space

When you decide to use an industrial cold room, you’re ensuring enhanced safety for all of your items. Not only can a cold room be securely locked, forming a separate, protected storage space for your products, but there is much less of a risk of them being accidentally “switched off” and the items inside left to spoil. The security offered to these products by industrial storage will always be second to none, so you can rest assured that all of your goods will be safe and are always kept in perfect conditions.

 

  1. Meet New Demand for Fresh Food and Online Delivery

Cold rooms have long been the ideal answer to many refrigeration issues, but now is a better time than any to invest in this specialist solution. This is because, in recent years, more and more people have been dining out than ever before, and the ability to keep food fresh and in good condition is the perfect response to a growing audience that is becoming increasingly demanding and discerning when it comes to matters of quality and freshness. Online ordering also constitutes a culture on the rise, so supermarkets and other stores that offer this option are strongly recommended to invest in cold rooms to keep items that have been earmarked for transportation cool and fresh.

 

  1. Take Advantage of Fantastic Versatility

We’ve already mentioned how easy it is to adjust the temperature of a cold room to your perfect level, but there are still further elements that can be adapted to meet your company’s requirements. Products that require cool, dry storage space will benefit from a cold room’s inbuilt dehumidifier, and these storage options are available in a wide range of various sizes and layouts, so it’s easy to select the model that is best for you.

 

  1. Benefit from Assured Protection

Locks and extra safe programming options aren’t the only security options that industrial cold rooms offer. In the event of a power outage, many models have inbuilt backup systems that prevent your goods from spoiling. Power cuts are a nightmare scenario for many companies that deal in frozen or refrigerated goods, and can cost thousands of pounds in unsaleable produce – but when you opt for an industrial cold room, this will never be a problem again.

 

Where Can I Find the Perfect Industrial Cold Room for Me?

If all of the above benefits sound like something that could make a big difference to your business, then MTcss is here for you. We offer unique, purpose-designed cold rooms to suit the specific requirements of each company that approaches us, undertaking the delivery and installation of everyone ourselves. We also supply high-quality spare parts and undertake maintenance for your ease and peace of mind.

How Could an Industrial Cold Room Help My Industry? | MTCSS

How Could an Industrial Cold Room Help My Industry?

If you thought that industrial cold rooms were only for large-scale distribution centres dealing in pre-packed meals and similar products, you’d be completely wrong; there is a wide variety of other industries that are already reaping the benefits offered by the installation of industrial cold rooms, and yours could very likely be one of them. MTcss are specialists within the field of industrial refrigeration and have served an amazing variety of different companies, improving their performance and enhancing their potential no end. Here are just some of the numerous sectors that may benefit from the use of industrial cold rooms.

 

Restaurants and Hospitality

With more and more focus on the use of healthy, fresh, additive-free ingredients within restaurants, and with many venues opting for an “open kitchen” layout to allow customers to watch their food being prepared, excellent refrigeration solutions are vital within this industry. Industrial cold rooms enable chefs to store items at extremely specific, constant temperatures to keep them fresh and delicious and perfect for preparation under intense scrutiny.

 

Agriculture, Farm Shops and Fresh Produce Specialists

One of the most delicate phases of food and beverage production takes place right at the source, before any treatment occurs. From dairies to fishmongers’ shops to butchery specialists, it’s vital that the environment in which new produce is kept is maintained at the correct temperature or goods could become contaminated. The precise temperature control inherent in the majority of industrial cold rooms constitutes an amazing help here.

 

Food Delivery

Services that allow customers to select products and have them delivered from their chosen shop or supermarket straight to their door are now a common part of society, and make life vastly easier for extremely busy people. It also means that the owners of supermarkets and convenience stores have been forced to seek out ways in which products may be kept at the optimum temperature to be picked out and placed into the back of a van or lorry for transportation immediately. Industrial cold rooms provide the perfect solution to this requirement.

 

IT and Technology

Not many people outside of the tech and digital industries give much thought to the issues that arise when multiple servers and computers are running at the same time in the same location. However, there are some severe safety implications that arise under these conditions. Overheating and electrical fires are a real possibility for particular companies unless temperature is well regulated, so industrial cold rooms can provide much needed climate adjustment for this purpose. It’s even possible to maintain a consistent level of humidity too, so condensation that may damage electrics will not be an issue.

 

Medical

The storage of medicines, hospital equipment and even organs is naturally a very delicate matter. Particular solutions and substances that exist to combat various illnesses are only effective when they are kept at certain temperatures, and organ donation and transplantation can only take place within an incredibly closely controlled environment. It’s something that the majority of us probably rarely think about, but the installation of temperature controlled storage rooms in hospitals can and does save lives.

 

I Think My Company Would Benefit from an Industrial Cold Room – What Do I Do Next?

Whether you work with food, computers or patients, it’s very likely that a well maintained and purpose designed industrial cold room could solve a variety of problems for you and make day to day tasks far easier and safer to undertake. MTcss creates bespoke cold storage solutions for all industries, so, in order to get the ball rolling and invest in your own industrial cold room, all you need to do is get in touch with their team today.

Furnishing Your Cold Room

Why Furnish Your Cold Room?

The furnishing of your cold room is important when it comes to organising and maximising your space. The use of different storage equipment within a cold room facility can help in making your storage area more effective in terms of arrangement and the cleanliness of the storage area. MTCSS create bespoke walk in cold rooms perfect for your cooling needs, also offering advice on how your potential cold room furnishings could be arranged and how they will help you with your cold room layout in the long run.

Shelving

There is a wide range of cold room shelving units available, that can be supplied by MTCSS for use within cold room storage areas. The typical choices tend to be wire shelving, aluminium shelving, stainless steel shelving and polypropylene shelving. In terms of each of their functions and uses:

  • Wire shelving allows for high air flow between your shelves. Usually made using nylon coated wire or nickel-plated chrome wire (making them corrosion resistant), this type of shelving is more commonly used to store fresh food items such as vegetables and fruit.
  • Aluminium shelving consists of strong aluminium frames holding shelves that are commonly made of plastic. These types of shelves are made to be easily lifted out of place making them ideal for cleaning.
  • Stainless steel shelving is usually made of 304 grade stainless steel, which acts as an operative way of resisting corrosion. This type of shelving is great for giving an aesthetically pleasing look to your cold room.
  • Polypropylene shelving is manufactured with shelves made with materials fashioned to be solid or with a grille effect. This cold room storage solution provides retention, whereas the grille shelves allow for better airflow to occur. Again, this type of shelving can be perfect for storing fresh foods such as vegetables and fruit products. The shelving unit will have a steel core which gives it added amounts of strength and sturdiness, and that is protected by a polypropylene outer covering.

As shown, there are a decent range of cold room shelving units to use in your cold room furnishings plan, each with characteristics to meet your needs in cold storage.

Flooring

Much like cold room shelving, there are a variety of choices for you to obtain in terms of cold room flooring types. Choices of cold room flooring includes modular, resin, concrete and vinyl. In terms of their characteristics:

  • Modular consists of a ‘five bar’ aluminium sheet being laid over a polyurethane floor panel containing a layer of plywood. This type of cold room flooring is usually used for light trolley storage and constant foot traffic.
  • Resin flooring tends to be used in cold storage areas that require to be used as production areas and need to be kept up to standards in terms of cleanliness.
  • Concrete flooring for cold rooms tends to be recommended for heavy-duty operations areas. It consists of reinforced concrete slabs being laid over extruded insulation. This forms a hard wear surface for the cold storage room.
  • Vinyl flooring is perfect for cold rooms that need to be kept clean. Altro is laid down as flooring, then being fitted against the walls of the room. This creates an easily cleanable, sealed flooring space.

These cold room flooring types can be used in your cold storage unit and each fulfil a particular purpose for how you need your cold room floor to be.

Strip Curtains

Strip curtains for cold rooms are a constant feature of cold storage as they can be an excellent way to save energy. Strip curtains hang between your cold room door and the actual cold room itself. The main purpose of strip curtains is to reduce temperature loss from cold rooms. Mainly important in the food production industry, strip curtains actually help in saving up to 60% temperature loss from a cold room. These almost transparent, flexible curtains help in saving energy costs by reducing temperature loss when the cold room door is opened.

Entrapment Alarms

Entrapment alarms for cold rooms are an imperative furnishing for any cold storage area. Commonly found in food production sectors, entrapment alarms allow for health and safety to be taken into account at all times. These types of alarms allow for staff members to alarm their colleagues if they are accidentally trapped in a cold room, or notice a fault in the cold room door.

Lighting

With cold rooms, lighting is a consideration that is often overlooked. Cold rooms do not only store food but are also readily used for storing medical products and items from various other industries. The temperature of cold rooms largely depends on its contents. The common types of lighting that are seen in cold rooms SON low bays, Aragon and the Nextrema LED. The specifics of these lighting types are:

  • SON low bays are common in terms of choice for cold rooms. This type of lighting gives off a warm appearance but can take quite a few luminaires to achieve a reasonably well-lit area.
  • Aragon is produced using a polycarbonate body, creating good lighting. It creates the effect of white light and giving off no glare. If in the situation of needing a lamp replacement for this type of lighting, replacement is cheap and easy to carry out due to the fixed, stainless steel clips.
  • The Nextrema LED is a lighting source that is specifically created for areas that are cold and/or damp. The advantage of this type of lighting is that it works better in colder climates. Nextrema LED lighting can achieve between 5 and 10% more output in a cold room compare to a room of normal temperature.

cold room curtains

How Insulated Curtains Can Help Your Cold Room

For years, insulated curtains supplied by MTCSS have been a leading, efficient way of keeping cold rooms at an appropriate temperature. For industries focused on areas such as food distribution and hospital data storage, these types of thermal insulated curtains have been a positive factor in ensuring their processes run smoothly and professionally. Of course, there are a number of reasons as to why they are such a success in these various trades.

Control Room Temperate

The main fact is that insulated curtains are perfect for keeping your cold room at the temperature you need it to be. Many industries depend on the contents of a cold room being kept within a certain temperature parameter. An example being that meat storage areas must keep meat content considerably fresh in order for it to still be eligible to be sold.

Thermal insulated curtains help in containing the temperature and contribute to restricting cold air for escaping when possible. This is mainly obtained by the unique ‘cold lock’ system insulated curtains. This ensures that the curtains fit neatly and effectively to the floor and ceiling. Due to this, the temperature in your cold room is given more chance of staying within your desired parameter, granted your cold room doors and insulated curtains are used appropriately.

 Money Saving

With insulated curtains, you will be delighted to learn that they will in fact save you in terms of money you invest into energy costs. The use of insulated curtains can cause minimum energy savings of 25% in chillers, 33% in freezers.

From the added benefit of insulated curtains, you are lessening the use of energy. This is due to insulated curtains keeping existing cold air in the cold room for as long as possible. This allows our company to invest your money elsewhere without having to worry about energy costs as much as before, again, provided that the curtains and cold room doors are used and closed appropriately.

 Reduces Noise and Easily Cleanable

The use of insulated curtains also assists in the hygienic and respective sides of the working environment. Thanks to the ‘cold lock’ system incorporated into insulated curtains, noise generated from mechanisms creating noise inside your cold room is blocked off more effectively. This helps in giving your employees a quieter working environment to operate in.

The insulated curtains are also found to be easily cleanable or replaced if needs be. The curtains themselves are soft, user-friendly and low maintenance. This enables employees to carry on with their work without constantly worrying about the hygiene of their working environment.

 Easy to Move Through

Insulated curtains take health and safety into account. As mentioned before, the curtains are soft, user-friendly and low maintenance. For when employees are hauling storage contents in and out of cold rooms, they will find that they needn’t worry about passing through insulation curtains due to the soft material being easy to move through.

Thanks to insulated curtains there is also a decrease in hazard potential. Insulated curtains actually lessen the chances of floor ice and hazards associated with it. This too gives employees peace of mind in knowing they are less likely to be endangered through a form of hazard when working.

When you are a customer with MTCSS, you can be sure that our variety of thermally insulated solutions, namely insulated curtains, will be made to fit your every need. They will be manufactured to lessen energy costs, hazards and any form of worry you have about the entrance to your cold room. If you feel that our thermal insulated curtains at MTCSS are perfect for you, please call us on 01886 833381 or alternatively e-mail us at sales@mtcss.co.uk. One of our experienced members of staff will be happy to answer any questions you have and help with any queries.

Everything You Need to Know About Cold Room Insulation

We at MTCSS take the sales and manufacturing of cold room equipment very seriously. It is important that you are entrusting your needs with the right company/people and that you know important information when seriously considering cold room appliances. The main thing you need to understand is cold room insulation: the component of cold rooms that makes it what it is.

The use of cold rooms is common for companies that deal in perishable goods. Examples of this are in the catering industry, laboratories, hospitals and the food distribution industry. Cold room insulation assists these kinds of companies in keeping their goods fresh and cool for when ready to be used. Cold room panels, which contribute to insulation, are perfect for industries to safely carry out their work, in various different ways.

Air Leakage

For obvious reasons, cold room insulation can only be effective if used appropriately and properly. The benefit of having cold room panels can only be achieved if your cold room is kept in a state of closure for the majority of the time. If not, the decrease in heat that you are trying to achieve will fail. This can usually occur through something called ‘air leakage’. Air leakage occurs when the cold room doors open. What this causes is the cold or heavy air to escape whilst warmer air enters into the cold room above it. In short, keeping your cold doors open for long periods of time is a bad idea. It will affect whatever stock you are containing and will also mean you are not getting the best use out of your cold room panels. No matter how effectively your cold room insulation has been fitted, air leakage will still greatly affect its limits of use.

Beware of Moisture

A common issue that is embedded in cold room structures is the growth of mould. The root cause of this is from cold room insulation not being covered completely and properly throughout. During Winter, your ceiling and walls of your cold room can become too cold. Every time your cold room doors open from this point, warmer and moist air can enter hit the cold surfaces of the cold room. This can cause water droplets to condense on surfaces. Also, if the outside becomes cold enough, frost can develop too, as well as ice. The moisture deposited by condensation on the inside of the cold room ceiling then forms mould.

Thankfully, cold room insulation can be the easy solution. To help prevent this from happening, insulation can be fitted to your cold room’s ceiling and walls. The insulation, provided that it is impervious to the passage of moisture vapour, should prevent further exposure for mould to form.

Can Fit Your Needs

The best factor in cold room builds is the fitting requirements. The ability to fit walk-in cold room appliances, such as cold room doors, means they can be fitted to whatever space you require. Whether it be for a chiller, meat storage facilities, pharmaceuticals, data rooms or whatever form of storage facility you require, your cold room appliances can be fitted. The simple information of width, height, use of storage space and other small pieces of information will make it possible for your cold room to become a reality.

We at MTCSS are committed to ensuring your bespoke walk-in cold room is exactly what you want. We centre our attention on your requirements and our trained experts are always happy to take that one step further to ensure you get exactly what you paid for.

 Use of Polyurethane

Polyurethane is the most commonly used, efficient material in use for cold room panels, being used in over 90% of all panels. It is a rigid cellular foam composed of two liquids: polyol and isocyanate. Panels consisting of polyurethane can be used in a variety of different thicknesses, enabling them to fit a number of different requirements.

This type of material has many advantages. It is low in weight, so easy for transferring and applying. Its thermal conductivity is among the lowest of materials, which of course helps in preserving the heat. It also has resistance to decomposition, also exposure to varieties of weather conditions/drastic changes in temperature.

At MTCSS, we have the expertise to exceed our ever-growing popularity and help you in every way of your installation from the very beginning of initial planning. Our insulation appliances have never let our customers down and have always had the most positive of feedback since our inception.

Choosing A Cold Room Door

Your cold room door can all too easily become an afterthought when you are choosing and installing cold storage – but it is a vital component of your insulation strategy and has a major effect on the efficiency of workers using your cold storage area. That’s why MT Cold Storage Solutions stocks such a wide range of cold room door solutions – from hinged or sliding thermal insulated doors and cold room curtains to insulated high speed and roller shutter doors – to ensure all of our customers can find an door solution that fits their needs perfectly, saves them energy and streamlines their business!

Reasons to Invest in an Insulated Cold Room Door

A cold room door helps to prevent heat energy from creeping into your cold room, whether by conduction, convection or radiation. Conduction and radiation are stopped by the high-quality insulating materials of the door itself, while quick, easy operation and secure closing facility means that convection currents never have the chance to become established.

Without a thermal insulated door, it is likely that your cold storage won’t be anywhere near as effective or efficient as it could be, and you’re likely to suffer the consequences in increased electricity bills, reduced cold storage quality and disappointed customers. Don’t leave out one of the most important parts of your cold room insulation – make sure the door is up to the task!

What Sorts of Cold Room Door are There?

MT Cold Storage Solutions offers a wide range of cold storage solutions to our customers, with cold room doors and access solutions available to suit any needs. No matter what the requirements of your business, MTCss has a cold storage door solution that can meet those needs and provide an unbeatable level of insulation!

They are very low maintenance and they offer great value for money; in fact, roller shutter doors can often have economic benefits, such as reducing the amount of energy a business consumes on a day-to-day basis. Here at MTCss, we currently stock 3 types of roller shutter door, including standard, fire-resistant, and high speed.

Do I Need a Cold Room Door, Cold Room Curtains or Both?

A cold room insulated door offers optimal levels of security and solidity, whilst also providing excellent insulation properties. If your cold storage area requires constant access, easy access, or experiences heavy traffic, you may want to invest in a set of cold room curtains as well. Curtains should not be used as an alternative, but simply in conjunction with a cold room door – offering continuous insulation when the door is briefly and temporarily opened.

Cold Room Curtains

An excellent solution for busy cold storage areas or to separate one cold storage area from another, insulated cold room curtains provide a durable, cost-effective, efficient way to maintain insulation. Air movement is radically reduced as the curtains can allow workers to pass through with only the minimum opening, closing behind immediately, while the curtains can be fitted with viewing panels and other safety features to improve efficiency and safe operation.

At the same time, the expert engineering of the curtains themselves makes sure the cold storage area stays well-insulated and reduces energy loss. Cold room curtains from MTcss may be exactly what your business needs!

Industrial Cold Storage

What Do You Need to Create a Cold Storage Warehouse?

Cold storage warehouses are a vital component of the food industry, agriculture and any industry involving storage at set temperatures. They allow food to be transported to its consumers safely, help to prevent market price fluctuations by stabilising the supply, and make it possible for businesses to flourish which would otherwise lose huge amounts of their stock to spoilage.

A cold storage warehouse must be able to keep the interior temperature within narrow margins, while still functioning as a fully operational warehouse, receiving, processing and distributing goods – often by lorries.

This combination of requirements makes the cold storage warehouse a complex, challenging installation for any business – but it’s a challenge that MT Cold Storage Solutions is ready to help you with! Just give us a ring on 01886 833381 or send us a message today!

What Is a Cold Storage Warehouse?

A cold storage warehouse is a warehouse, or section of a warehouse, which is kept at a low temperature to preserve the goods stored there. Functioning in a similar manner to a cold room, but on a much larger scale, a cold storage warehouse allows a business to store very large quantities of temperature-sensitive goods, and manage complex logistical operations like bulk deliveries and distribution, without compromising the quality of storage provided or the quantity of goods which can be stored.

They do this by ensuring good-quality insulation throughout, and making use of industrial cooling systems to keep the temperature at an optimal level, while industrial insulated doors make sure that the interior of the warehouse is exposed to external conditions as briefly and infrequently as possible.

A cold storage warehouse can optimally be situated between the suppliers of the stored goods and the market for them, making sure that your customers enjoy the freshest, best-preserved food on the market by reducing the time spent outside of cold storage as much as possible.

Alternatively, you could use temperature-controlled freight services to transport the goods at the same low temperature as that provided by the cold storage warehouse, maintaining an even temperature for your stored goods at all times.

Why Would You Need a Cold Storage Warehouse?

Cold storage warehouses are crucial to properly storing temperature-sensitive goods like foodstuffs, ensuring that they can be distributed to their consumers in the best possible quality. In industries including food and drink, agriculture, pharmacy and manufacturing, large quantities of goods may require storage at particular temperatures to prevent degradation, and where this is the case, a cold storage warehouse is the ideal solution.

What Do You Need to Create a Cold Storage Warehouse?

A cold storage warehouse is essentially a huge cold room, able to meet consistent standards for temperature, hygiene, safety and quality while fulfilling the normal roles of a warehouse – accepting shipments, packaging up freight and assisting coordinated logistics operations. From the industrial cooling system that chills the warehouse to the insulation and thermal insulated doors that keep it cool while it works as a busy warehouse, the vital components of a cold storage warehouse are all available from MT Cold Storage Solutions – contact us today on 01886 833381 or get in touch on our contact form! The experts at our head office will be happy to help you find the ideal cold storage warehouse solution for your needs, and can provide advice or answer any questions that you may have.

The key things to remember when creating a cold storage warehouse are:

Storage Space

The first thing that sets a cold storage warehouse apart from a cold room is storage space: lots of it. A cold storage warehouse is a large space with the facilities to cope with the level of activity generated by warehouse work: your cold storage warehouse will need to be able to accommodate workers, lifting and carrying equipment, and maybe even freight trucks in order to work as efficiently as possible, though these features will need to be optimised with regard to thermal insulation in order to keep energy costs down and efficiency up. Talk to the team at MTcss about optimising your warehouse for cold storage today – they’ll be happy to help you.

An Industrial Cooling System

In order to cool the huge interior of a cold storage warehouse, you will need a powerful cooling system. The industrial cooling systems offered by MT Cold Storage Solutions is one way to make sure that your cold storage warehouse remains at the right temperature, as these robust, powerful chillers can lower the temperature to the required level and maintain conditions, ensuring a reliable, completely consistent storage temperature throughout the warehouse.

Insulation

Without insulation, your cold storage warehouse will become a heat sink for the surrounding area, and heat will rush in, overworking your industrial cooling unit and spoiling all of the temperature-sensitive goods kept in the warehouse. You wouldn’t try to run a cold room with no insulation, so why would a warehouse be any different?

Cold storage warehouse insulation available from MTcss includes wall insulation, insulated doors and insulated flooring, and with all three in place, you’ll be able to ensure that there are no weak points in your warehouse’s insulation which may allow heat to enter and cause problems!

Thermal Insulated Doors

Thermal insulated doors are one of the most important features of a cold storage warehouse. Preventing convection currents from forming, or conduction and radiation from occurring, a thermal insulated warehouse door also has the advantage of being able to prevent unnecessary airflow or disturbance to the air while in use, opening and closing quickly and with the minimum of disruption to the air, which helps to keep the interior of the warehouse cool even in heavy traffic conditions. No matter how busy your cold storage warehouse is, you can rely on the thermal insulated doors from MTcss to help keep it cool!

Thermal Insulated Walls

Insulated wall panelling from MTcss helps to prevent heat from creeping in through the walls of the cold storage warehouse, with protection against conduction, convection and radiation.

While convection is often considered to be the biggest danger to cold room integrity, able to circulate warm air in and raise the overall temperature very effectively, conduction and radiation are equally dangerous in warehouse walls, since the heat of the sun or the surrounding area may warm the walls, allowing ready conduction and radiation of large amounts of heat.

The wall insulation available from MTcss can be installed by our expert teams and provides unmatched insulation for your cold storage warehouse, boosting your energy efficiency, lowering the costs of running your cold storage warehouse, and helping to guarantee great quality in all your stored goods!

Thermal Insulated Flooring

One part of the insulation of a cold room or cold storage warehouse that is often overlooked when insulating the area is the floor. Literally beneath notice, it is often assumed that a solid floor connected to strong foundations will act as insulation enough, and won’t conduct much cold away or much heat in. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case, and as cold air sinks and heat rises, the floor is actually just as likely to result in heat entering the cold room as other areas, if it isn’t properly insulated – so you should always be sure to pay attention to it when outfitting your cold storage warehouse!
