Cold Room Refurbishment

At MTCSS we understand the importance of having an efficiently running cold room and how an inefficient chiller or freezer could negatively impact your business. We also know how important for your cold storage to adhere to all health and safety regulations.

That is why MTCSS not only offer new cold room installation, but we offer maintenance and refurbishment on your existing walk in chillers, freezers and doors where this is possible.

Why should you refurbish your cold room?

Refurbishing your existing chiller or freezer cold room and cold rooms doors is essential to ensuring your cold room continues to work efficiently and effectively. A cold room which is running inefficiently is at risk of higher running costs and potentially damaging your products.

Cold room maintenance and refurbishment is also vital to ensure the safety of your cold room – keeping your employees and those who use your cold room safe at all times.

Maintaining doorways and cold rooms doors is key

If the cold room door or gasket perishes, the door won’t seal correctly – then the temperature will escape through the door. This can make the refrigeration equipment work a lot harder than it was designed for subsequently costing more energy to power and run.

In freezer cold rooms and walk in freezers – where the cold air escapes the room and meets the ambient air then ice can start to form around the door frame, making the door difficult to open / close. This could potentially cause an accident, especially if the ice forms on the floor threshold, making the floor a risk for slipping and therefore causing injury.

If a cold room door handle breaks there is potential for someone not being able to get out of the room if they shut the door behind them – making it highly unsafe for operations. If an employee is trapped inside a freezer this could potentially be a very dangerous situation.

Where the cold room door isn’t running and operating correctly, they can become stiff and harder to open increasing the potential risks to employees having to constantly open them resulting strains, muscle pulls etc.

How do I know whether I need to get a new cold room or refurbish my existing cold room?

You may wonder whether you need to replace your existing cold room or whether you can opt for cold room refurbishment – MTCSS explain what to look for to indicate you need a new cold room.

If the cold room panels have started to delaminate or shrink, then they are losing their insulation performance making the refrigeration equipment work harder. The ceilings will be under more stress if they have delaminated, increasing the risk of them collapsing – this is when you should think of investing in a new room.

If the cold room is damaged internally, affecting the aesthetics, or if the steel layer is ripped causing jagged edges etc – then consider a cold room refurbishment. We can install 5 bar aluminium up to 1200mm height inside and outside the room, or hygienic planking inside the cold room to improve the appearance and safety of the room.

What is involved in refurbishing my cold room?

If you are able to opt for cold room maintenance and refurbishment, here are the key elements of refurbishing your walk in chiller and freezer :

  • Changing door and sweeper gaskets
  • Checking and changing heaters
  • Repairing or replacing handles and door furniture
  • Adjusting door operations

  • Hygienic planking to internal walls if required
