USING REEFERS TO STORE MEAT

When large and small businesses need to store meat in locations where permanent facilities are unavailable, refrigerated containers are often the most viable option.

Here are some commonly asked questions and answers about this topic:

Basic facts about reefer containers

Refrigerated containers are lightweight and mobile yet very robust and secure. They have a built-in cooling system with an independent power supply which means they can operate in remote locations.

Spacewise supplies units in three standard sizes (10ft, 20ft, and 40ft), allowing companies to lease the amount of space appropriate for their business on a temporary or long-term basis.

Our containers are highly reliable and can support deep freezing temperatures down to -30 ͦC, which is perfect for keeping meat fresh for extended periods.

Practical advantages of container-based storage

The most apparent reason containers are used across the food industry is cost and flexibility. Containers allow companies to handle a temporary increased demand for storage space without the need to make a huge financial commitment to building new infrastructure. In addition, since they are very easy to relocate, temperature-controlled containers can be used to store meat products in a wide number of locations, from supermarkets and butchers to outside events.

Setting and maintaining the right temperature

Since meat can deteriorate quickly in hot weather if not properly refrigerated, it’s essential to always keep the climate inside the storage container at exactly the right level. Spacewise containers have temperature ranges from -35°c to +30°c, allowing produce to be kept at a precise temperature that is set by the user.

Spacewise can offer cost-effective leasing terms to any business, from caterers to supermarkets to butchers

Refrigerated containers are suitable for short-term or long-term storage of meat products. In particular, when leased during busy periods, they can create a lot of value for companies operating in this sector, helping to ensure consumer demand is met cost-effectively.

I wish to say Spacewise (Sharon) response time is superb (even whilst she is on holiday!) and time between my enquiry and quote provided is remarkably quick.

Equipment delivery is good quality and clean. Commissioning (usually next day unless otherwise organised) is complete by suitably qualified engineers and an ‘operating’ explanation given to the end user.

In addition their after-sales support is very good, tech. offering advice and engineer if deemed appropriate.

We contacted Spacewise to supply us with 2 refrigeration storage units on behalf of the client and their bar supplier as a long hire during the peak season. We haven’t experienced a single problem with them and we have found the team to be helpful and reliable at all times, particularly Sharon Rimell whom we have been liaising with. Happy bar company, happy client! They come highly recommended.
