Refrigeration Supplies for Every Application

In addition to stand-up or walk-in refrigeration systems, you can get a commercial refrigerator or commercial freezer in a complete range of other sizes. Some of the possibilities include:

  • Under-counter fridges and freezers. If you have a line cooking operation with distinct stations in your kitchen, under-counter fridges and freezers can be a godsend. They allow each member of your kitchen staff to keep a full supply of the foods they need close at hand, helping them do a faster and better job.
  • Bar fridges. You can get portable or stationary bar fridges, which are specially designed to accommodate a great many standard-sized cans and bottles. Some bar fridges even have a built-in commercial ice maker for added convenience.
  • Chest freezers. A horizontal commercial freezer is an excellent choice because virtually every square inch of space inside it is usable for food storage. While upright freezers typically have larger overall volumes, they aren't quite as efficient in their use of interior space.
  • Refrigerated display cases. If you need refrigeration systems for a retail operation, there are many different display fridges available that keep foods and drinks at proper temperatures while allowing customers to serve themselves.

Many restaurants and food service institutions use walk-in fridges and freezers for the bulk of their storage. These systems offer one of the most organized ways to store your food.

System efficiency and insulation are the primary considerations you need to make when evaluating the merits of a given walk-in refrigerator or freezer. You want a system that uses the least possible amount of energy to achieve the desired temperature, but it's just as important to make sure you buy a walk-in fridge or freezer that is well-insulated and maintains an even temperature. Don't be in a hurry to purchase a walk-in unit; it is one of the biggest purchases you'll make for your business, and choosing incorrectly can cost you a great deal of money.
