No. All Polar King walk-in cold storage units are built specifically for outdoor use and have been engineered to withstand the elements. Unless you have your own reasons for doing so, there is no need to cover the unit in anyway.
Yes, there are usually a small number of used walk-in cooler trailers for sale, as well as used walk-in freezers. These units are reconditioned and often sold in “like new” condition. Our used inventory typically sells quickly, so certainly consider putting your name on the waiting list.
The degree of the slope will determine whether or not the concrete slab is usable. In most cases shims or other simple modifications can be used to level the walk-in unit. Consult your sales representative in the event you have a concern about your existing slab.
Polar King has established relationships with service companies in most metropolitan areas that are able to do warranty work. As well, warranty work can be performed by any licensed establishment of your choice, in the event you have a particular organization you are comfortable with. All warranty work is subject to the terms and conditions of Polar King’s written warranty. If you have any questions concerning warranty work please contact Polar King directly.
In general, most applications will call for a roof mounted compressor with a fiberglass weatherproof cover. We also offer side mount and remote refrigeration systems for applications requiring this type of installation.
Four weeks is the standard lead time for most Polar King walk-ins. However, it is possible that lead times will reach 8 weeks during peak summer months. Check with your sales representative for the most up to date availability information.
Yes. Polar King is proud to offer Metro Shelving to accommodate your shelving needs. Polar King will design a cost effective shelving package that best fits your storage needs. The major advantage of buying your shelving from Polar King is having the shelving arrive ready to use in your new walk-in.
Yes. Most asphalt surfaces are an acceptable base for the Polar King unit to sit, provided the area is in good condition and is relatively level.
Every Polar King walk-in comes standard with an automatic door closer, ensuring an airtight seal after each entrance and exit of the unit (this feature does not interfere with the safety of exiting the unit). Another great energy saving option is having a vinyl strip door installed on the door(s).
You know your operation better than anyone and our sales staff is trained to help you determine the most suitable size for your needs. By working together we can determine the perfect size to accommodate increased inventory levels and the goals of your operation.
Because Polar King offers a 100% seamless unit, we are able to offer virtually any size. Available widths are from 6′ to 16′ and lengths of 8′ to 65′. Units can be ordered with even or odd dimensions, or even right down to the inch.
Every Polar King has a steel frame base built into the bottom of the walk-in, enabling our walk-ins to be placed on most level surfaces, including asphalt, wood decking, grass and gravel. We do recommend that if you have a thru-wall design (where the walk-in is physically attached to your building)that you place the walk-in on a concrete slab.
Unlike metal walk-ins, every Polar King unit is constructed of fiberglass and is 100% seamless. Therefore, these problems do not occur with a Polar King walk-in. Assuming you keep your unit in an acceptable condition you should never experience such problems.
Absolutely NOT! The fiberglass exterior of our commercial freezers, refrigerators, and refrigerated trailers is completely weather resistant. Our exterior will never rust, dent or corrode and because our walk-ins are 100% seamless you never have to worry about our insulation deteriorating due to moisture.
