Industrial Cold Rooms
Storage Design For Multi-Story Factories

Industrial Cold rooms are essential for businesses that deal with a perishable or temperature-sensitive inventory. Items like fresh fruits and vegetables, flowers, and even many processed foods can’t be stored at regular temperature for a long time. They will spoil easily and that will lead to additional expenses and a waste of money. This is more likely to happen in warm and humid regions like Singapore.

That’s why many businesses in the food industry install an industrial cold room on their property. At Kiat Lay Cold Room Specialist, we have installed several cold rooms of different sizes over the years. We understand how this technology works and know how to create the most stable environment for our client’s products. Here we take a look at what industrial cold rooms are and related information.


What Is An Industrial Cold Room?

An industrial cold room is a temperature-controlled space specifically designed for harsh industrial environments. These rooms can vary in size based on the client’s requirements and industry. Here’s a look at some of the key characteristics of cold rooms:

  • These rooms have temperatures ranging from 0°C to -30°C, which makes them suitable for all kinds of storage applications. The indoor temperature levels can be customized according to the client’s requirements.
  • Chill cold rooms have temperatures around 0°C and above. This environment is ideal for dairy products, cooked food items like vegetables, meats, eggs, cereal, etc, processed and pre-prepared food, partially uncooked food like pasta, dough, and raw ingredients.
  • Freezers have temperatures ranging from 0°C to -°C to -30°C and come in a number of forms. They can be blast freezers, carton box freezers, tunnel freezers, deep freezers, spiral freezers, etc.
  • Cold rooms are designed to keep things like bacteria, mould, and decomposition at bay. The room also prevents condensation, which can spoil some products can make them unusable.


Cold storage systems are very versatile and can be used in a large number of applications. They’re most commonly used in the food industry, but can also be found in pharmaceuticals, logistics, research, and other such industrials. If you need a large refrigerated space for your business, a cold room is the best choice for you.


What Sets Our Industrial Cold Room Apart?

Modern business owners are spoilt for choice when it comes to cold room installation companies. There are several businesses in Singapore that can work on such a project for you. Here are some reasons why we stand apart:

  • Focus on Energy Savings – It takes more energy to cool down a space than to heat it, especially in the hot and humid conditions of Singapore. That’s why it is important to build an energy-efficient cold room system for our clients. Our team doesn’t just choose the most efficient refrigeration system but also makes sure the cold room walls don’t have any gaps to let the hot air in.
  • Consistent Cooling – We make sure the cooling is consistent in all areas of the cold room. This means you don’t have to deal with pockets that are too hot or too cold for your inventory to remain stable.
  • Efficient Design – Most industrial rooms have a lot of traffic moving in and out. We make sure the space is optimized for both human and vehicular traffic. This reduces the chances of accidents and ensures the space is safe for your employees.

These are just some of the benefits of hiring us for industrial cold room construction. You get a team dedicated to quality and high standards.


A Look At Our Industrial Cold Room Installation Process

Cold rooms might look simple on the surface, but they have quite a complex design. It is important to ensure that all measurements are accurate because poorly-constructed rooms will let the outside hot air in.

It means these cold rooms might need more energy to run. Our meticulous design and installation process helps reduce errors and ensures the cold room functions well. Here’s a brief look at how we handle industrial cold room installation projects:

  • Initial Consultation – Different businesses have different requirements when it comes to cold rooms. It is important for our team to understand these requirements and plan accordingly. During this consultation process, we make note of the client’s budget, business requirements, inventory, and daily traffic into the room, storage requirements, and the space available on their property.
  • Detailed Estimate – Once we understand what the client needs and note down all the details regarding their requirements, our experts create a detailed estimate of the cost involved. There are no hidden expenses in this estimate so you have a fair idea of how much you might need to spend.
  • Planning – The next step is to design and plan the industrial cold room according to the client’s requirements. We survey the available space, take the environmental conditions into account and keep scalability in mind when we create designs.
  • Manufacture/Building – Once all the design and planning is done, we move on to the construction phase. All components of the cold room are manufactured and the machinery is collected. We choose the most efficient refrigeration systems to get the best results.
  • Installation – After all of the components are done, we install the system on the site carefully. The technicians double-check every aspect of the installation process to ensure the room is assembled correctly and can handle the traffic.
  • Testing – The newly installed industrial cold room undergoes quality testing to determine if it is functional and efficient. This testing is thorough and ensures clients don’t face any problems down the line.
  • Handover – The final phase of the project is to assemble all the cold room related documentation and hand the place over to the client. Our experts will conduct a final walk-through with the clients to ensure they’re satisfied with the results.
