Commercial walk in coolrooms require certain features to ensure that they are safe for employers and employees. That’s why when choosing a coolroom it’s important to understand the safety measures that are put in place. Here’s a list of safety features of coolrooms you can expect to see.

External power points with RCD

The power source is conveniently located outside the coolroom for easy access and in the case of an emergency. It is also fitted with RCD safety switches to ensure peace of mind.

Failsafe emergency releases to the doors

Each coolroom is fitted with failsafe emergency release doors so that you will never be locked inside the coolroom.

Internal lights

All coolrooms can be fitted with internal lights. Internal lighting is an essential measure to ensure better visibility during both the day as well as at night.

Lightweight removable panels

Every coolroom is made from quality light-weight panels. However, these panels can be removed from the inside or the outside, meaning that in an emergency you are not locked inside the coolroom. This is important to be aware of in an emergency situation.


Coolrooms are fitted with easy to access alarms so that in an emergency help will be on its way as soon as possible. Ensure that all staff know where the alarm is located.


Door releases and alarms are glow-in-the-dark so that you know where the exit is at all times, even if the internal light is not on.
