There are differences between walk-in coolers based on type as well as manufacturer, but at their simplest, a prefabricated walk-in cooler is just a large insulated box with a cooling system. The components can be summed up in a very short list: panels, floor, door, and refrigeration system.

The Panels basically sandwiches made of foam insulation and thin metal sheets, panels range from 3 1/2" - 5" thick and keep the walk-in at the correct temperature for storing your fresh or frozen foods. They are generally made with a 24 to 26 gauge galvanized steel, aluminum or aluminum-coated steel, painted steel, or stainless steel that is called the skin. Panels also often have embossed patterns in the metal to help maintain a professional look, provide additional strength, and reduce the appearance of wear and tear.

The Floor depending on the space you have, models with and without floors are available. Floor materials differ between manufacturers, but many will be made of smooth aluminum. If your walk-in is located above a basement or in a warm, uninsualted area you will need insulated flooring to keep hot air out and cold air in. Insulated flooring will not only extend the life of your compressor since it won't need to work as hard, but it also prevents condensation from forming. Condensation in a walk-in is dangerous as it can damage boxes and will also be a slipping hazard for your employees.

The Refrigeration System the most complex part of the unit is the refrigeration system. To bring it down to basics, you’ll want to know how much power the system will need in order to operate, where that power will be coming from, and how much clearance and ventilation the system will need. All of these are things that could affect the configuration that you choose.

Smaller walk-in coolers typically require a 1/2 hp compressor to hold temperatures at or below 41 degrees Fahrenheit. Walk-in freezers often need a larger compressor—around 1 hp—to maintain those colder temperatures. Remember, the larger the walk-in the more powerful the refrigeration system will need to be.

The Door a very important element of any walk-in, the door must provide access while still preventing cold air from escaping. Plus, the door is the most abused part of the walk-in and needs to be able to stand up to frequent use. Purchasing a unit with a self-closing door mechanism, high quality door hinges and latches, along with well-fitting gaskets can help it last longer and prevent loss of cold air for greater energy efficiency. Other options that you may see include a small window in the door for viewing or door locks to keep your food secure after hours.
