Modular cold rooms – how do they work and what are their benefits?

Modular cold rooms are an increasingly popular option for businesses that are looking to install cold room facilities at their premises. Unlike fixed cold rooms which come as a single unit, a modular cold room is made up of panels and is constructed on-site. They have a range of benefits over fixed units and are a flexible choice for a wide range of different businesses.

Why are modular cold rooms becoming the cold storage solution of choice for so many catering businesses?




Because of their modular, on-site construction, they can be fitted almost anywhere. If you’re just starting out and your space is limited, a modular cold room gives you enhanced cold storage despite space restraints. Fixed cold rooms require significant access to be installed only really making them suitable for larger rooms, or for purpose-built facilities where they’re installed during the construction process.




Modular cold rooms can be built and dismantled quickly and then transported to new premises. If you run a business with a significant increase in trade volumes during certain times of the year, such as summer for a holiday business or around Christmas, then you can install temporary cold room facilities quickly.


Safe and secure


When properly constructed, modular cold rooms are safe to use. They will feature a handle on the side to guarantee exit for workers from cold rooms, and they can usually be locked to help reduce the risk of stock theft. The level of security and safety offered is equivalent to that found with fixed cold rooms.




Modular cold rooms offer a completely reliable cold storage solution for businesses. Despite their size and modular nature, no aspect of their performance is compromised when compared to fixed room options. They can be relied upon to do the job required of them without any issues.




Because of their modular nature, it’s often presumed that modular cold rooms are less solid than fixed room versions. In fact, that couldn’t be further from the truth. When constructed by professionals, such as the experienced team at Enviro Chill, they are structurally sound. A modular cold room can withstand anything that’s thrown at it in a busy catering environment.




Modular cold rooms are an extremely efficient option. They maintain consistent energy use and a consistent temperature even in very hot kitchens. This ensures that what’s placed within the cold storage remains at a steady overall temperature. That temperature can easily be modified through sophisticated temperature controls.
