    Cold Room Hire Makes Excellent Business Sense

    Around the world, the ability to hire cold room facilities at a competitive fee has become an invaluable resource. Used by event organisers, outdoor caterers, hotels, restaurants and hospitals to ensure that food, drink, medicines, samples and flowers remain in their optimum condition, there is no reason to risk health and safety, the integrity of items or service levels by working without cold rooms.

    In the UK, we may not have the Rio de Janeiro Carnival to cater for with day time temperatures of 30 degrees Celsius and overnight lows of 21 degrees or contend with Australian summer days when the beach could be 30-40 degrees and barbecue ingredients can part cook themselves or go off and become host to myriad bacteria, just by sitting beneath the sun on hot sand, but attention to refrigeration is vital.

    Maintaining temperatures in cold climates is as important as in hot ones. You may wonder why during a Canadian winter with sub-zero temperatures enterprises would need to refrigerate cans of fizzy drinks. The answer? Because the contents freeze and cause the cans to explode posing a danger; at least when they are in cold rooms the temperature is maintained at viable levels.

    Imagine that another Beast from the East occurs and you have a street catering business; your stock cannot necessarily sit happily at -10 or -15 or even -5 degrees; food items freeze, the quality could deteriorate and you’ll find that you unwittingly pose a health and safety risk to diners.

    For florists, keeping plants cool and fresh is a priority but freezing blooms will burn; it isn’t worth the risk to hope for the best. The cost of cold room hire is far less than writing off stock day after day.

    Medical and scientific establishments must maintain medications and samples at stable temperatures to ensure accuracy and rewarding results. Consider a blood sample taken at 10a.m. which the lab assesses five hours later. At room temperature the sample could be affected, unfit for assessment or the results inconclusive so another sample would be required, the process restarted, and the patient left worried for their wellbeing as no prognosis can be made by the experts.

    Cold rooms for day to day or peak season use, removes this distressing and time-consuming probability.
