Walk-In Coolers & Walk-In Freezers
Walk-in coolers and walk-in freezers are must-have components for large volume food storage and prep staging within a restaurant, hotel, school, or other foodservice kitchens. It’s important to consider several factors when purchasing a walk-in cooler or walk-in freezer which is why we consider the most efficient and productive flow of food products from delivery to the cookline when designing a commercial kitchen.
Walk-in coolers and walk-in freezers can be designed for most applications and configurations and, depending on space restrictions within your building or property, can be located indoors, outdoors, or even in basements.
Walk-in coolers can be used for draft beer systems and keg storage for tap house concepts, bars, clubs, and resorts. Some other walk-in uses include non-tempered dry storage, merchandising, floral coolers, and ice cream freezers – the usage possibilities of walk-ins are almost endless.
Over the years, Dine Company has installed hundreds of walk-ins of various sizes and purposes at restaurants, bars, hotels, churches, and senior living facilities. Thanks to working with some of the best walk-in manufacturers in the foodservice industry in Kolpak, Nor-Lake, Imperial-Brown, AmeriKooler, and Masterbilt, we are able to quote quick ship walk-ins in less than 30 minutes. Quick ship walk-ins are available in sizes from 4′ x 6′ up to 10′ x 12′ with self-contained or remote refrigeration.
Custom Walk-In Refrigerators and Walk-In Freezers
In addition to standard size walk-ins, we also specialize in custom walk-in coolers and walk-in freezers designed around the needs and available space within your foodservice kitchen. We can work around poles, low ceilings, outdoor obstacles, and around corners. Walk-ins can be recessed into walls or feature large spans up to 20 ft. without support or can even be cooler/freezer combos in a single unit. Exterior walk-in finishes can be black or white or a paintable finish for a custom color.
Upgrades/Accessories for Walk-Ins
Upgradeable features and accessories allow you to customize a walk-in to fully meet your needs. Upgrades for walk-in coolers and walk-in freezers include, but are not limited to: track doors, bay doors, alarm sensors, heavy-duty latches and door closers, strip curtains and air curtains, LED interior lighting, Wi-Fi temperature/humidity monitoring systems, reinforced keg tap walls, diamond plate floors or walls, and interior/exterior ramps to allow for easy storage and removal of product.
Some very popular upgrades revolve around the door(s) to the walk-in. Many customers choose a combination of a viewing window, diamond plate kick guard for added protection, and a heavy-duty three hinge system.
