Walk-In Cooler and Freezer Repair and Refurbishment


Daily usage in busy foodservice workspaces can be rough on your walk-in cooler. Walk-ins subjected to frequent abuse lead to various issues. For example, regular door slamming causes damaged hinges, closers and handles. Also, heavy cart or forklift traffic leads to buckled floors and peeling metal, not to mention refrigeration systems that wear out when not appropriately serviced.

All these issues lead to lowered performance and place your stored items at risk. Fortunately, Norlake's walk-in cooler and freezer repair and refurbishment program will restore its performance.

Repair Or Replace?

When debating repairing vs. replacing your walk-in, repairing it is likely the more practical solution if: 

  1. The walk-in still holds temperature and… 
  2. The damage is confined to one or two components (door, floor or refrigeration system) 

Norlake provides each one of these components through the walk-in cooler and freezer repair and refurbishment program.
