Similar in operation to a reach-in refrigerator, the walk-in cooler is a multipurpose appliance that any bustling commercial kitchen deserves. Used to store extra ingredients, an average walk-in cooler provides hundreds of cubic feet of chilled storage. Though they come in a variety of sizes and categories, most walk-in coolers are either floored or floorless. Floorless walk-in coolers are designed to be operated on a concrete floor. If your building already has a concrete floor in regulation with local health codes, a walk-in cooler can be built on top of it. If the floor is undergoing construction, it might be a good idea to install thermal breaks between insulated concrete pads for robustness and protection against condensation. It is possible to have both indoor and outdoor coolers in a floorless configuration. In order for these units to function efficiently, the floor type must be taken into consideration. While it is possible to install a floorless walk-in cooler on a regular concrete floor, it is better to have a floor specifically designed to accommodate a walk-in cooler. The advantage of having a robust floor with thermal breaks and insulated concrete is the ability to handle heavier loads and bring in a loading cart. A basic floor is usually capable of only handling foot traffic and lighter loads.
