For a cooler to work efficiently, it is extremely important that the temperature is maintained. Accurate and predictable interior temperature maintenance is a major challenge in California. Those responsible for operating and maintaining refrigerated walk-in coolers, refrigerated warehouses, food storage and distribution centers, in addition to food processing facilities, rely on high-quality walk-in cooler panels to keep the hot air out and the cool air in.

The best cooler panels have excellent thermal insulating qualities and are lightweight and easy to assemble.

Minimize Energy Costs

Maintaining the temperature in a walk-in cooler can be expensive. These facilities must be energy efficient. They also have to withstand daily use and wear. The State of California has established very strict “R” values for coolers and freezers. “R” value refers to an insulating materials resistance to heat flow. The higher the “R” value, the more effective the insulation is. Well-designed walk-in cooler panels achieve R28 and R36 for freezers.

The material used is either Polystyrene or Polyurethane. The choice of insulating material is based on the specifications set by the cooler engineers. The material is sandwiched between metal sheets, and the panels can be fabricated to different thicknesses.

Coolers Built to Customer Spec

Coolers and freezers have many uses. Each one is built to meet finite specifications. To maximize utilization and minimize energy consumption, the panel design and door location are extremely important.

Pre-manufactured cooler panels are fabricated to meet the specific needs of the customer. The panels can be made to specific sizes and specific thermal specs. Once they arrive on site, they are easy to install. Panel construction makes it easy and quick to erect a cooler facility. The design makes it equally easy to disassemble it and move it to a different location.

Highly efficient walk-in cooler panels are available from TKS Cold Storage Manufacturing & Construction in California.
