Cold Storage

Warehousing space in a refrigerated warehouse is highly valuable, so we want to help you utilize the space most effectively by increasing productivity, efficiency, safety, and reliability. We design high-density storage solutions to increase allowable inventory storage within your footprint.


Temperature-controlled environments require considerable operational planning to ensure the quality and safety of perishable products throughout the entire supply chain; from distribution centers, to retail, and to the end consumer.


Twinlode Automation has ample experience working in the cold storage industry and has delivered many successful projects to businesses contributing to food supply for communities around the nation.

Characteristics of Cold Storage

  • Products are transported quickly within today’s temperature-controlled facility to ensure freshness.
  • High operational costs to refrigerate warehouse.
  • Floor space is extremely valuable; requiring a need for high-density storage systems.


Recommendation for Cold Storage

Due to fast handling speeds within freezer settings, there is an increased risk for equipment damage, either forklift or racking, which could result in system downtime or workplace injuries. Although roll-formed steel is a more economical option, structural steel has quickly become the industry standard for material handling systems in cold storage facilities due to its durability against harsh freezer conditions and resistance to susceptible forklift damage.


Why choose structural steel over roll-formed for refrigerated environments?

  • Structural steel is engineered to support heavy load capacities
  • It is comprised of hot-rolled channels of steel, welded components, and bolted connections; resulting in a durable and sturdy structure
  • Structural steel’s open-back design is ideal to help keep the system free of debris
