Paso Caribe

August 1, 2016

Paseo Caribe in San Juan, Puerto Rico recently became the home of five Thermo-Kool walk-ins consisting of four coolers and a cooler/freezer combination. The 11’6” x 8’6” x 8’6” high Thermo-Kool walk-in cooler pictured preassembled at the Thermo-Kool factory is awaiting a thorough quality control inspection which ensures “hidden costs” are avoided during the time of installation. To maximize storage each of the walk-ins were manufactured in the actual sizes needed to fit the exact job site space. The actual sizes were accomplished by utilizing Thermo-Kool’s high-density DURATHANE perimeter to manufacture in 1” panel increments with every panel locked-in-place so no cutting or pasting was necessary at the job site. The exposed and interior finishes of the walk-in coolers are White Stucco Aluminum and the unexposed exterior is Stucco Galvanized. The White Stucco Aluminum on the interior along with the LED lighting assured maximum illumination. The finish on the interior and exterior of the walk-in cooler/freezer combination is stainless steel. Each of the Thermo-Kool walk-ins include a 36” x 78” stainless steel interior and exterior door and frame with a 14” x 14” peep window, three adjustable hinges per door, vinyl swing doors, 1/8” aluminum treadplate kickplates and jamb guards 42” high on the interior and exterior, temperature alarms/door monitors with panic switches, motion detectors, battery backups and dry contacts. The interior floors are 1/8” smooth aluminum each with Thermo-Kool’s foamed-in-place interior ramp which is an integral part of the floor design. The Thermo-Kool walk-in cooler pictured also included a stationary glass window.
