With over a decade's expertise in free-standing, custom made refrigerators and cold rooms. We have built up an enviable portfolio of clients – from commercial and hospitality users, to architects designing upmarket homes for their discerning clients.
Our standard refrigerated cabinets for the catering industry are constructed from stainless steel and Chromadek® pre-painted hot-dip galvanised or electro-galvanised steel sheet.
These can be made to specific dimensions. Many optional extras are available.
Quality and performance
Custom-made means we manufacture to the exact specifications of our clients, where we cut, bend, weld and assemble our stainless steel and mild steel products. There is no compromise – neither in craftsmanship nor in materials. Our production line is a well-maintained line-up of top-end machinery and tools, operated by our skilled staff.
All components that require insulation are laminated with high strength adhesives. That's because a laminated profile is stronger than a foamed in-situ one. We choose polystyrene as insulating medium because the insulating properties of polystyrene are always guaranteed to perform. Also, far fewer hazardous chemicals are used in the process. We recycle our polystyrene off-cuts, so wastage is kept to a minimum, benefiting the environment.
Our refrigeration components are designed to operate on ozone friendly refrigerants such as R134A, R404 and R507.
Components are sourced from established companies such as AC+R, RECO, Metraclark and MACS refrigeration.
All our refrigeration systems incorporate an electronic controller with clear digital LED display and timed defrost intervals, so you know the status of your refrigeration with pinpoint accuracy.
Custom built cooler rooms and freezer rooms
Metnor designs, manufactures and installs cold and freezer rooms to the client's required dimensions.
Our cold rooms are designed to keep product at +4 °C. Our freezer rooms maintain a constant -18 °C.
We will see to every aspect of installation: flooring, drainage and electrical consultation included. Also, we will advise you on the most suitable placement of the compressor unit, considering aesthetics and noise reduction.
We manufacture our panels to conform to industry specs:
Cold room panels: 100 mm polystyrene 16 kg/m3.
Freezer room panels: 150 mm polystyrene 16 kg/m3.
Panels can also be fluted and supplied in different thicknesses.
