Specifications required for quotes of cold rooms and cold stores

You will need to submit a sketch or drawing showing the dimensions required for the cold room or cold store as well as other relevant details for submission to Refrigeration Equipment Depot. 
What is the thickness of the walls, ceiling and floor?
Polyurethane panels camlocks are available in 3" and 4" thicknesses and are assembled with a cam-friction system camlocks (see spec sheet below). Joints between panels combined with friction cams form a water and vapor tight seal.
The freezer room must have an insulated floor paneled on the slab or recessed in a depression, unless it is installed on an insulated concrete slab.

What will be the external height of the cold room or cold store?
The standard height is 8'-0".

What will be the interior and exterior finish of the cold room or cold store?
The standard finish is 26 ga white prepainted steel. 24 ga stainless steel SS #4 Type 304 or Type 316 is also available. Type 316 stainless steel is more corrosion resistant and is used in salty environments.
Does the insulated floor need to be reinforced to withstand intensive use with heavy weights, forklifts or heavy shelves?
The standard floor supports a weight of 200 lbs/sq.ft. Please consult our technical department for the construction details of a reinforced floor according to the requested load. The floor is reinforced by adding a plywood inside the panel. You can also add a non-slip aluminum checker plate  to also increase its resistance to high loads with 1'' spacers to promote air circulation.
