Free-Standing Walk-in Cooler Unit

This 10’x16’ freestanding walk-in cooler was custom built for a client that specializes in honeybee research and conservation. They required a unit that could not only offer precise and consistent temperatures but also maintain proper ventilation.

Ventilation and Monitoring Options

Because cold weather can decimate bee colonies, indoor cold storage is used to improve survival chances while also increasing colony size and strength. In addition to a steady and reliable temperature range, proper ventilation and CO2 monitoring is required. Therefore, our client elected to add an exhaust fan with a timer and intake vent. Additionally, we have added a CO2 monitor with display. This allows convenient and easy access to CO2 levels.

Vinyl Strip Door Curtains

The doorway entering the walk-in bee cooler has two vinyl strip curtains. This further helps to minimize cold air loss as persons enter and leave the unit. The door itself, which comes standard, is a one-piece seamless design. This adds extra efficiency and does not allow moisture to penetrate the door.

Standard Equipment

Other standard equipment on this outdoor walk-in bee cooler includes a condensate line, defrost timer, exterior hasp lock, and low ambient pressure controls. As always, each Polar King unit comes with an antimicrobial interior finish and is NSF certified.

Comprehensive Warranty

Additionally, each Polar King commercial walk-in freezer comes standard with a comprehensive warranty that includes 25-year coverage for the insulation, 12 years for the structure of the unit, and 5 years on the compressor.
