Cold Storage Facilities
Cold Storage: Cold Rooms and Cold Storage Warehouses
A cold room or cold storage warehouse is a specified construction facility utilized for processing and storing items that must be kept at low temperatures to maintain safety and quality. Cold storage facilities are crucial when the temperature controls of a standard storage space are not enough to accommodate thermally sensitive goods, particularly consumable products like those in the food supply chain.
While food processing plants, perishable storage facilities, restaurants, commissaries, and distribution centers frequently need large cold storage rooms to house inventory, many different industries need the protection that controlled environments offer their products.
Cold Storage and Cold Room Applications
Aside from the standard needs of the food industry, various trades find cold storage facilities useful for their products to meet requirements and consumer expectations. PermaTherm has been actively working in the cold storage industry for 30 years, supplying insulated metal panels and sharing strategies that are essential for high performance cold storage facilities throughout the country. We have supplied IMPs, which are the primary thermal envelope for cold rooms for the following applications and more.
- Produce washing, handling, and storing
- Beef, pork, poultry, and seafood processing
- Dairy farming, ice cream storage, and cheese ripening rooms

- Medical and pharmaceutical laboratories and storage
- Beverage factories and bottling plants
- Grow rooms, clean rooms, and indoor farming

Cold Storage Food Preservation, Production, and Processing
After 30 years in the industry, PermaTherm has developed extensive knowledge regarding the exact needs and specifications required for successful food storage.
We have spent an immeasurable amount of time with our clients, working together to create ideal product systems for America’s food supply chain. Thanks to the hours we have dedicated to improving our panel products, we have been an integral part of creating thousands of food processing plants, storage rooms, and more across the country.
When it comes to food preservation, nothing is more important than environmental stability. As it moves from warehouse to market, special care must be taken to guarantee peak freshness and flavor.
We understand the complex construction needs that a successful food industry company requires. If you are a producer of dairy, meats, seafood, poultry, eggs, fruits and vegetables, or beverages we can provide you with solutions every step of the way.
Cold Storage Expansion, Additions, and Renovations
Warehouse additions and expansions often require cold room cooler or freezer panels and installation processes that must be customized to fit an already-existing structure. In addition to developing new construction projects, we also offer options that give you confidence in maintaining a tightly controlled environment while expanding your current facility.
Over the recent years, it has become popular for businesses to upcycle existing structures to suit their needs instead of creating an entirely new structure from the ground up. We love the opportunity to partner modern engineering with architectural history. No matter the circumstances surrounding your addition, we can equip you with:
- partition walls
- expansion walls
- walkable ceilings
- suspended ceilings
- underfloor insulation
- and more!
Our job is to make sure you have access to every other product you may need for a successful renovation or expansion.
