Polar King Past Project: Educational Summer Camp and Retreat

This 11’x7’ free-standing walk-in cooler freezer combo was custom built for Camp Chestnut Ridge in Efland, North Carolina. Our client required a free-standing unit that could provide both walk-in freezer and walk-in cooler applications.

Center Mount Evaporator Coil

The walk-in refrigerator section of the unit features a center mount evaporator coil. This allows higher ceiling space, which adds additional storage. Entering each compartment, we have installed vinyl strip curtains on the door frames. These vinyl strip curtains add an extra layer of efficiency to the unit by not letting heat into the inside of the walk-in.

Nexel Poly Z Brite Shelving

Our client also requested shelving throughout the interior of the unit. We installed Nexel Poly Z Brite Shelving throughout the interior. At Polar King, we assemble all the shelving and place it into the unit, saving both time and labor once the unit arrives.

About Polar King International

The introduction of the Polar King outdoor walk-in freezer into the food service industry was the result of three generations of walk-in refrigeration technology and experience. Polar King’s fiberglass, one-piece walk-in cooler is the natural evolution of the walk-in cold storage industry from the conventional metal panel constructed unit. In early 1982, Polar King began operations by constructing and shipping walk-ins from a modest 12,000 sq. ft. facility in New Haven, Indiana. As demand grew for outdoor fiberglass commercial walk-in coolers and commercial walk-in freezers, production was moved to a 251,200 sq. ft. facility located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. For 40 years, Polar King has provided thousands of walk-ins to single-unit operators, chain restaurants, schools, health care facilities, government agencies, and many other industries requiring dependable outdoor walk-in refrigeration.
