Do I need a cold room for commercial food storage?

Yes, if you have fresh or perishable produce, a cold room is essential for proper commercial food storage to maintain freshness and safety. All of our commercial kitchen units are equipped with cold storage facilities on site.

Do cold rooms have a long contract?

Business needs change all the time, so we don’t believe in tying our clients down to lengthy contracts when they might not need them. We offer flexible long-term, monthly and weekly cold room hire, which you can adapt and extend in line with your requirements.

Do your cold rooms in London have on-site parking?

To ensure easy access to your unit, cold room storage rentals have on-site loading bays and goods lifts, so stocking your cold room is simple at Dephna, regardless of your load size.

Other on-site benefits of Dephna’s cold storage solutions include 24-hour security measures such as CCTV monitoring and access fobs.

When can I access my walk-in cold store?

Every business is different, which is why you can access your commercial kitchen rentals and cold rooms 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. Whether you have food prep through the night, or you need to retrieve your fresh produce and meats in the early hours of the morning, you can do so with Dephna’s flexible, modular cold rooms.

How much does cold storage cost?

We pride ourselves on providing cheap cold rooms in London. Our cold storage units are available for £400 per month, plus VAT and metered utilities, so you only pay for what you use.

What can modular cold rooms be used for?

Cold storage solutions are ideal for keeping a wide range of produce and goods. Thanks to the various cold room temperature settings – ambient, fridge or freezer – you can store anything that needs to be kept in a chilled or frozen environment.

Our walk-in cold storage is most commonly used for keeping frozen food or perishables, such as fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and fish, but it’s completely adaptable to your business requirements. Although companies in the food industry are the main users of our walk-in refrigerators, they are ideal for pharmaceutical companies too.

What is a cold storage room?

Think of cold storage as a large fridge. A walk-in cold room is a large refrigerated room designed for goods that need to be stored below the outdoor temperature to keep them fresh or edible.

As cold rooms are significantly bigger than a standard fridge, they are perfect for food businesses with a large stock inventory or perishables they need to keep fresh for longer. The cold storage temperature can be set to ambient, fridge or freezer, perfect for a broad spectrum of goods.
