Selecting the Right Walk-in Freezer: What are the Factors to Consider?

07 February 2020

Businesses that require large-capacity cold storage can benefit the most from the walk-in freezer. A walk-in freezer is an enclosed storage space refrigerated to temperatures above and at or below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. This type of cooling unit is dedicated to hold any type of food, produce, leftovers, and other related products.

Walk-in freezers offer a lot of advantages to business owners like you. They provide convenience since you don’t have to buy a lot of storage units for your products. They can also save you from troublesome expenses since these walk-in freezers are efficient in using power. They are also safe and reliable that can help you boost your revenues.

With all the numerous advantages, a walk-in freezer can also work effectively and efficiently if you purchase the right one. Here are some factors to consider when purchasing the right walk-in freezer for your business.


When choosing your walk-in freezer, it is important that you consider the number of things that you will store in it. If you are limited to a room by its width or depth, then opt for a walk-in freezer with a high ceiling. If you will be placing the walk-in freezer externally, then you may want to use panels that are high as about 9 metres. A walk-in freezer, however, can be restricted by the existing ceiling height if it will be placed indoors. 


From the height of your walk-in freezer, you must also choose one with a huge storage capacity. Even if you have the highest walk-in freezer out there, you must still buy one that can store your products freely. Moreover, a freezer with a lot of space can allow you and your employees to roam around without bumping anything.


One way to ensure great accessibility to your walk-in freezer is its overall structure and layout. See to it that the walk-in freezer has good access to the freezer door. You must also check if the door can be opened fully while ensuring that passing through it is safe. Accessibility is very important in walk-in freezers since a lot of items and trolleys are moved inside and out during operating hours. Without proper accessibility, your employees will be forced to lift heavy items, which can help trigger serious health issues along the way.


Walk-in freezers vary in operating temperatures, height, size, weight, and other elements that can affect their power output. So, check first your power capacity to know if you can hold and run your choice of the walk-in freezer. Moreover, check your power source and the power required to make your freezer work efficiently. The aforementioned factors will certainly guide you in selecting the right walk-in freezer for your business.
