Case Study: National Storage Temperature Controlled Room

Home > Humidity Controlled > National Storage Temperature Controlled Room

Total Coolrooms was selected as the preferred partner to construct the upgrade of National Storage's facility in Brunswick, Victoria.

The brief was to convert the third floor storage area into a temperature controlled room for wine storage. This is a service that National Storage are offering to their clients under their "Wine Ark" program.

The room dimensions were 29000mm x 31000mm x 2900mm high and the site had its challenges. The location was a off a busy thorough fare with a narrow entrance to the site.

A third floor window had to be removed and all the materials had to be hoisted up 3 floors through the opening. The building was over 100 years old and various obstacles had to be overcome including dealing with uneven flooring, walls & ceilings.

The project included the supply and installation of the insulated panel, refrigeration and electrical works. Titan packaged refrigeration units were utilised to provide the correct temperature for wine storage with a back up system as redundancy.

2 drop down doors and 2 sliding doors were manufactured and installed to improve efficiency and also to meet the OHS policy of National Storage. A further 6 PA doors were installed around the room to allow easy access.

All obstacles were overcome to deliver a very high standard outcome.
