ISD Solutions, a specialist in cold store construction solutions for grocery, food production and warehouse markets, is expanding its offering into the catering and fast food sector.
The company is rolling out 14 sizes of modular walk-in cold and freezer rooms, available ‘off-the-peg’ from its operation in Gloucester.
The units fall under its MISA range, with storage volumes spanning 3.1m³ to 16.7m³ and operating temperature from -20°C to +5°C.
ISD uses 100mm thick high density isothermal polyurethane panels, which it claims provides superior insulation properties that make the cold stores “significantly more efficient” than other commercially-available cold rooms and freezers.
Andrew Hudspith, director of ISD Solutions, says demand for modular cold storage solutions is growing as small businesses realise the value of ‘walk-in’ solutions, with a single access door.
“These offer not only efficient safe storage of perishable goods, but reduced energy consumption — now the second largest cost factor for the hospitality sector.
“Our customers range from hotels and restaurants, including high street brands Burger King and Yo Sushi, to caterers, recreational facilities and cinemas, schools and colleges, independent retailers, even artisan food producers, florists and care homes.”
ISD’s cold rooms are supplied with floor, ceiling and wall panels, an integrated refrigeration unit, digital controls and lighting.
A mix and match approach provides customers with flexibility over the choice of room size, compressor specification, shelving and installation preferences.
Further customisation is possible with options for strip curtains, windows, sliding doors, floor options for walk-in or trolley access, even remote condensing units, according to Hudspith.
