Many people who are in the market for a walk in cooler / walk in refrigerator don’t really know where to start. There are so many choices and options available that it can be difficult for the first time buyer to make a decision. The following article will go on to help make purchasing a walk in refrigerator a bit easier for the consumer.
Many people fear that assembling a walk in refrigerator is a difficult task. American Cooler Technologies uses a cam lock system that makes assembling the unit a very simple process. Simply slide two panels together using our tongue and groove system. Once the walk in refrigerator panels are slid together snugly, simply use the provided allen wrench to lock the panels in place. The walk in refrigerator panels will draw together and you will visually be able to see the gasket compress. This is a sign of a high quality walk in refrigerator.
Next, look for a walk in refrigerator that is built using wood frame construction. This will allow for a very sturdy unit. Many companies today are building what is referred to as an “all foam box”. These walk in refrigerators are not nearly as strong as a wood frame box. What will often happen with an all foam box is the cam locks will pull out of the panel. This happens because the cam locks are not anchored in anything but the foam. In a wood frame walk in refrigerator, the cam locks are actually anchored in the wood frame which makes them virtually impossible to pull from their setting.
When choosing your walk in refrigerator, choosing polyurethane insulation is VERY important. Polyurethane insulation offers a superior r-value when compared to extruded polystyrene, while also providing more durability. Polyurethane will provide you with an extremely sturdy and energy efficient walk in refrigerator.
