ISD Solutions Extends Energy Efficient Modular Cold Storage Range
Published on 12th June, 2014
Gloucester, 10 June 2014: ISD Solutions, a leader in cold store construction solutions for grocery, food production and warehouse markets, is expanding its offering of modular walk-in cold and freezer rooms for the hospitality and fast food sector, where quick, energy efficient and flexible storage management solutions for temperature critical goods and services are essential.
Available ‘off-the-peg’ from ISD Direct, the MISA modular cold storage range now covers 14 popular sizes with storage volumes from 3.1m³ to 16.7m³ and operating temperature from -20 to +5 degrees. These provide an off-the-shelf easy to clean solution ideally suited for hotels, restaurants and fast food outlets, as well as pubs and catering companies.
The use of 100mm thick high-density isothermal polyurethane panels provides superior insulation properties, typically making a MISA cold store significantly more efficient than other commercially available cold rooms or freezers. This, in turn, ensures lower running costs an increasingly important factor for small businesses facing rising energy bills.
Designed as a complete modular cold storage solution, all off-the-peg 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 complete 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.
In addition, an innovative ‘FASTFIT’ system using a patented cam lock fastener ensures quick and simple assembly to minimise installation costs and the finished surface with rounded and internal coved corners enables easy cleaning for good food hygiene. Importantly the lockable MISA cold rooms are Food Standard’s Agency HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) compliant and include a range of additional features such as illuminated internal safety release and integrated mono-block plant.
Andrew Hudspith, director ISD Solutions explains: “The 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.”
In addition to off the shelf products ISD Direct also provides a bespoke design, manufacture and installation service, drawing on the company’s expertise in large-scale cold storage projects, to meet the requirements of customers where unusual or complicated space is involved or a more complex solution with pantry, chilled food preparation and cold storage is required.
