To be amazed
We don't make excuses, we make it happen
Don’t compromise on the features and customization. You probably have specific needs for your warehouse; our team is more than capable of meeting those requirements. You won’t have to settle for anything other than perfection: from different temperature zones, loading areas, building configurations, modular design, specific functionality, we’ve got you covered.
We use polystyrene for our insulation; unlike polyurethane, it doesn’t lose its structure over time, maintaining a proper barrier between your freezer and the outside, basically keeping the energy usage low. The use of galvanized steel offers lasting structural integrity to the box. We use the same high-grade glue, screws, and joints used in airplanes to piece it all together. Combining these materials and our manufacturing techniques also lower energy consumption keeping your operation’s operation costs low.

When investing in a storage warehouse facility, it is important to remember the most costly part of your investment is most often the product that you are storing. Depending on the type of product, its tolerance to temperature changes within the storage room will vary. But in all cases, a loss of temperature caused by equipment failure can be a very costly problem. Through the proper design of redundant refrigeration systems, you can protect your investment.
When designing any large walk-in cooler or walk-in freezer, it is important that optional construction techniques are understood before you make a final decision on how you will proceed with your project. For example, our experienced team can review options available to insulate large floor areas and the advantages of each for your particular location and operation.
Equally important is the selection of the proper type, size, and location of insulated doors to add to the efficiency of your overall operation.
In the design of processing rooms, we aim to achieve the proper temperature and humidity to maintain your product for the period of time that it remains in this area. Additional criteria for processing rooms are added when you take into consideration that people, as well as product, must spend an extended length of time in these workrooms. At Worldwide Refrigeration we have the experience and knowledge to blend the requirements of your employees and your product in order to achieve a design that will provide an effective and comfortable processing operation.
Pallet Racking Systems
With the various styles of pallet racking systems available, it is important to know and understand the advantages that each one offers and how it may apply to your particular situation. Considering things such as the size of your operation, type, and volume of product, how it is being stored, the frequency of rotation and sequence of access, we would be pleased to use our years of experience to suggest some possible lay outs and options for the pallet racking system within your walk-in cooler or walk-in freezer warehouse.
Spending the time to review all aspects of your operation before determining the final design of your warehouse can have a dramatic impact on the overall effectiveness of your personnel as well as make the best possible use of the substantial investment you are making in cold storage space.
Our Manufacturing Process
Worldwide Refrigeration Industries, Inc. is in the unique position of being able to offer you a variety of panel construction options for your walk-in freezer or walk-in cooler. In all cases, the metal panel facings are laminated under pressure to rigid insulation with an elastic adhesive. This ensures a strong and permanent bond while allowing for expansion and contraction with variations in internal and external temperatures. When compared to a “foam-in-place” type of construction, this manufacturing process allows us to offer the most flexibility in panel sizes and insulation types, and thicknesses; assuring you of the most cost-effective solution for each of your walk-in freezers and walk-in coolers. It also eliminates the possibility of areas in your panels being “void” of insulation which may occur in a “foam-in-place” panel. Worldwide’s panel warranty is evidence of our confidence in the strength and durability of the construction of our panels. Your satisfaction will be a testament to the flexibility that we offer.
Panels with Cam-Action Fasteners
Panels manufactured using cam-action fasteners provide for a fast and easy installation with provisions for future expansion or relocation of your refrigerated room. These panels are available in a maximum width of 47”, with insulation thicknesses of 3”, 4”, or 6”, and a maximum length of 22 feet. Through the locking action of the fastener, the panels are drawn firmly together forming a positive, airtight seal. These fasteners are made with a tongue and groove construction, which aids in the easy and accurate alignment of the panels during installation.
In order to complete the airtight seal between panels, there are two options available. Worldwide Refrigeration offers a factory-applied NSF gasket, which makes your installation quick and easy. As the panels are drawn together using the cam-action fastener the gasket is compressed assuring the seams are sealed. As an alternative, at the time of installation caulking can be applied on the insulation between the panels with a finishing bead of silicone on the seams after the room is assembled. The caulking and silicone are supplied by Worldwide Refrigeration with your walk-in to assure that the products you are using are of the best quality and suited for a refrigerated application.
Worldwide Refrigeration offers walk-in coolers and walk-in freezers that have been certified by NSF and meet their strict regulations as required in NSF/ANSI standard #7 for food equipment. In addition, our insulated freezer doors have been certified by Underwriter’s Laboratories (U.L.).
“Snap & Seal Panels”
Using a patented locking system (patent #6,122,879) developed by Worldwide Refrigeration Industries, Inc. for walk-in coolers and walk-in freezers, we can offer a cost-effective alternative to the standard insulated panels using cam-locks. These panels are available in a maximum width of 45 5/8”, with insulation of any thickness and a maximum length of 22 feet. To allow for easy and accurate alignment, these panels are made with a tongue and groove construction. Along the edge of each panel, the metal is designed to lock the panels securely in place simply by pressing the edges of two panels together allowing the metal edge to compress and then snap back. During the installation, caulking and silicone (supplied by Worldwide Refrigeration) are applied in the seams to provide an airtight seal.
These “Snap & Seal” panels are unique in their design because they were developed specifically to meet the needs of refrigeration applications. They are easy to install, snap securely together providing a truly airtight seal, and may be taken down and re-installed without causing damage to the panels.
