At long last the problem of a lack of valuable chilled space in town centre located stores and shops, or indeed anywhere, has just been overcome with the introduction of SMI’s Cold-Korner™, an instant chill space that can be operational in minutes and folded away just as quick for the same space to be used for other purposes.
Unlike a fixed coldroom, a Cold-Korner™ is only used when required doubling the use of the same area, particularly important when little space is available.
The Cold-Korner™ is simply constructed from a pre-made thermal roof panel which is suspended from a ceiling or wall, often in a corner, Tempro® curtains are fitted on to SMI’s unique track to provide nearly 6 to 7 cubic metres of chilled space which is then chilled by a well tried and tested evaporator designed for the purpose and runs from a 13 amp single phase supply.
A temperature of 2°C is usually achieved in under 15 minutes. The Cold-Korner™ can be made bigger if required.
“The Cold-Korner is a flexible refrigeration solution which has helped us to maximise space” – Waitrose
Below is a table showing the results attained by Campden BRI during testing:
Figures may be improved when Tempro® is matched with different face or lining materials or if a heavier Tempro® core specification is demanded. Tempro® is Fire Retardant to BS 5867: Pt 2 1980.
