Capital Cooling unveils new coldrooms

UK: Capital Cooling has launched a new range of coldrooms for the foodservice, retail and medical sectors.

The KubePlus and KubeUltimate coldrooms are said to be the result of an extensive R&D process, with Capital Cooling utilising leading technology to give the two ranges their own special properties for chilling and freezing.

An off-the-shelf solution, the KubePlus is said to be designed with reliability, ease-of-installation and minimal hassle operation in mind. Capital Cooling describes it as being ideal for the foodservice and retail sectors where rooms must be functional while taking advantage of limited space.

With a large stock-holding of standard room panels, Capital Cooling says it can offer next-day delivery on a large number of room sizes and configurations.

The KubePlus is a completely flexible solution, offering multi-compartment or multi-temperature rooms depending on a client’s needs. 

The premium model of the Kube range, the KubeUltimate, is described as a no-compromise option for clients looking for a coldroom truly bespoke to their needs. Every KubeUltimate coldroom is custom designed, manufactured and built to the exact requirements of the client.

“Every industry has its own needs and requirements, which is why the bespoke and tailored nature of the KubeUltimate is so important,” explained Capital Cooling CEO Steve Steadman. “Each room is designed from scratch, taking into account all aspects of its proposed location – all elements such as wall thickness to temperature range and accessories are specified to suit each unique need.”

The KubeUltimate room boasts a range of high spec features including electromagnetic door locks, stainless steel panel finish, 80mm-150mm panel thickness and can operate at temperature ranges from -110°C to +80°C as well as other optional extras and accessories.
