It has been installed on the door of each cold room that operates at freezing temperature.

FLOORS

   • Can I install the camera without insulation on the floor?

At Refriclim, we always advise that for freezing cold rooms insulation is installed on the floor, as this will minimize both thermal losses and the operating time of the equipment.

However, for conservation chambers and work rooms it is not necessary to install floor insulation.

   • Can a ramp be placed for entry into chambers with flooring?

Yes, to avoid a step at the entrance of the cold-insulated chambers, it is possible to install ramps for easy access.

   • Can I enter a camera with insulated floor with a pallet truck?

Yes, but for this it is necessary that the ground has a layer of concrete.

DOORS

   • Can I open a refrigerator door from the inside?

Yes, the refrigerator doors can always be opened from the inside.

   • To which side does the refrigerator door open?

The door can be located at any distance according to the client's desire.

LOCKED PERSON ALARM

It is an alarm that serves as security in case of being locked inside a cold room.

This alarm consists of a button located inside the camera, in addition to an alarm with acoustic and light signaling that is installed outside the camera.

It is necessary to install a man-locked alarm for conservation chambers (0 / + 2ºC) and freezing (-18 / -20ºC), while for work rooms it is not necessary to have these alarms.

PRESSURE BALANCING VALVE

The pressure balancing valves are installed to ensure that the internal and external pressure of the chamber is the same, thus avoiding sudden changes in temperature that can cause overpressure or depressions inside the chamber.

   • When are the pressure balancing valves to be installed?

The pressure balancing valves must be installed in all chambers with a volume from 20m3 and in all the frozen temperature chambers.

   • How are the pressure balancing valves to be selected?

Depending on the size of the cold room and the working temperature.
