Coolers & Freezers
Walk-in coolers and freezers require specialized storage solutions to withstand this valuable space’s conditions and storage loads. Walk-in cooler shelving must be a combination of strength, overall stability, abrasion resistance, and rust protection. The environment is damp, the stored products may be salty or acidic, and heavily loaded containers are placed abruptly onto the shelving. At Metro, we have various options designed to create long-lasting, easy-to-clean, walk-in cooler shelving for your facility.
Plastic shelving is an excellent fit for a cooler and freezer environment. Metro’s unique walk-in cooler shelving configurations are strong enough to handle your inventory.
MetroMax shelving units offer superior lifelong durability and performance. The MetroMax 4 and MetroMax i all-polymer systems feature a lifetime warranty against rust and corrosion. MetroMax Q’s quick-adjust shelving is combined with polymer posts to deliver a 20-year rust warranty.
All MetroMax plastic cooler shelving comes with removable shelf mats that wash by hand or in commercial dishwashers. Shelf mats also serve as a protective surface that withstands the daily abuses from poly-carbonate food storage boxes and stainless steel pans.
Metro’s plastic walk-in cooler shelving includes a built-in Microban antimicrobial product protection that inhibits the growth of microorganisms like bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungi. This helps keep the product cleaner between routine cleanings.
Super Erecta shelving and its Metroseal 3 epoxy coating have been trusted by generations of professionals for its rust-resistant performance. Super Erecta Pro is a next-generation solution that offers tremendous value - a combination of clean-ability and durability that sets it apart from other round post shelving options. Metroseal 3 and Super Erecta Pro also include Microban product protection.
Larger walk-in coolers and freezers will benefit from mobile shelving or high-density track shelving. All of our cooler shelving designs are incredibly sturdy, making for the most reliable cart.
You can incorporate a high-density track shelving system when you need to fit more shelving in limited space. This heavy-duty system can increase your storage capacity in medium-to-large walk-ins by as much as 50%! Metro is the only shelving provider with all polymer shelving options sturdy enough for high-density track shelving.
For smaller walk-ins, each Metro cooler shelving system can be joined together with “S” hook clamps to create open corners with unobstructed access. The 1” shelf adjustment comes in handy to take advantage of every inch of vertical space. A multitude of other accessories will help you stay organized.
Coolers and freezers are some of the most valuable storage systems in a foodservice operation. Metro’s durable, cleanable walk-in cooler and walk-in freezer shelving systems effectively put the space to work.
