When it comes to keeping your business running, your infrastructure should facilitate efficiency and productivity. That’s why it’s important to invest in a drive-in cooler or freezer.
These warehouse freezers are expansive enough to drive heavy equipment into. Your operators can drive forklifts into the refrigerated space, instead of moving materials from cold storage by hand!
They’re available in many sizes and styles, and you can customize yours with the additional features that your operations require. In fact, at Barr Commercial Refrigeration, we can even build a custom drive-in freezer for your specific needs!
The main advantage of a drive-in cooler or freezer is that it boosts efficiency and productivity in your operations. In fact, you should optimize for these benefits starting at the design phase!
In addition to size and shape, you should consider the surfaces that you could install within the space. That way, you can organize the optimal routes for heavy equipment and pedestrians around your materials.
If your goods are stored on pallets, then open space may be best for ensuring that forklifts have the space to maneuver. Conversely, if your products are better suited for utility vehicles, then should be sufficient space for drivers to dismount and load the material.
Investing in a commercial cooler or freezer is recommended for any business that needs to store large quantities of frozen or refrigerated goods. By being able to drive heavy equipment into your industrial freezer, your materials can be accessed more efficiently, and preserved for much longer.

At Barr, Inc., we specialize in collaborating with our clients to discover, design, and customize the perfect drive-in freezer for their business. We’ll work with you to understand your specific needs and recommend the best solution for your operations.
To ensure that you find the perfect solution for your business, there are a few factors to consider, such as:
The Type of Material(s) to be Stored
The Quantity of Material(s) to be Stored
The Method of Storage (i.e. Container/Platform Type)
The Primary Method of Accessing the Material(s)
The Type(s) of Heavy Machinery to be Operated
