Organization is important in a walk-in cooler, helping to reduce inventory waste and also speeding up employees’ ability to find the items they need. Shelving is not only a major part of organization but shelving allows you to store more items in your walk-in and let’s you store them in a safe manner. When it comes to flowers, stacking isn’t really an option so shelving is crucial and keeps your blooms in the best shape.
Most walk-ins include an external thermometer display that shows the temperature and humidity level inside of your unit. Keeping an additional thermometer around as a back up can decrease the risk of temperature fluctuations due to a faulty or an incorrectly calibrated main thermometer. Since flowers require very specific humidity and temperature levels it is important to make sure your thermometer is giving an accurate reading.
EMERGENCY INSIDE SAFETY RELEASE
Accidents happen and there are cases of employees locking themselves inside walk-in refrigerators and freezers. Many walk-ins come with an inside safety release built in. If your walk-in already has a safety release, remember to occasionally check it to make sure it is working properly and doesn’t require any repairs. If your unit doesn’t have a safety release, consider adding one for additional peace of mind and to make sure your employees are safe.
Door curtains are easy to install and are an exceptionally affordable way to keep temperatures stable in walk-in units that see a lot of in and out traffic. Curtains come in standard sizes but can also be customized for any walk-in opening.
If your walk-in is not flush with the floor around it and is elevated you may want to consider the addition of an exterior ramp. A ramp provides great assistance when large amounts of inventory are regularly being moved in an out of your walk-in. Buckets of water for storing floral arrangements can become heavy depending on the size and carting them out with the help of a ramp offers an easier transportation solution.
