Walk-in Repair & Refurbishment
Daily usage in busy foodservice workspaces can be rough on your walk in cooler. Walk ins are frequently subjected to abuse that leads to a variety of issues. For example, frequent door slamming results in damaged hinges, closers and handles. Also, heavy cart or forklift traffic leads to buckled floors and peeling metal. In addition, refrigeration systems wear out due to lack of service.
All these issues can lead to lowered performance and place your stored items at risk. Fortunately, Norlake is ready to repair your cooler or freezer and restore its efficiency.
Repair Or Replace?
When debating repairing vs. replacing your walk-in, a good rule of thumb is if the walk in still holds temperature and the damage is confined to one or two components (door, floor or refrigeration system), repairing it is likely the more practical solution. Through the walk in repair program, Norlake provides each one of these components.
