Walk-in Cooler | Freezer Installation Manual


This guide is provided for your information and guidance. Although no single set of directions apply to every situation; some basic instructions can assist in installation. For special installations, please contact the factory.

Inspection on delivery

Each panel will be marked at the factory, designating walls, floor, and
ceiling panels. A floor plan is provided to assist you.

Please take time to inspect all panel boxes prior to signing for shipment,
making note of any damage on the delivery ticket. If concealed damage
is discovered, save carton and immediately contact carrier agent to initiate
inspection and claim. Please remember, although we will assist you in any
way we can, this is your responsibility.

Handling of Panels

Your panels were individually inspected prior to shipment and loaded in good condition.Damage can occur if not properly handled while unloading and erecting your walk-in. If the ground is wet, stack panels on a platform to avoid contact with the ground. If panels are placed in outdoor storage, cover with moisture proof sheeting. When handling panels keep them flat to prevent denting and avoid resting them on their corner edges. Always use sufficient man power to eliminate mishandling or dropping panels.

Prepare your site

Please be sure the area is free of debris and swept clean. Next "chalk" the perimeter outline of the structure and confirm its "square" by checking
diagonal measurements.










Panel Description

All panels have a tongue-in-groove, inter-locking design, with N.S.F.
approved edge gaskets, resulting in an airtight structure. If installed
square and level, panels are provided with male and female cam-locking
device set into exact lined positions around the perimeter.
Panel and lock locations are always described from their interior because installation is accomplished from the inside. The male lock is located on
The tongue edges and the female lock is located on the groove. You will
have access to the male lock through the holes punched in the interior
metal panel surface. Insert the Hex wrench (supplied) through hole and
firmly engage with Hex opening of lock arm. Rotate arm 75· to secure
lock. Make sure lock arm is in a complete open position before joining

Floor Panels

After you have cleared the debris and swept installation site clean, use a
chalk line to outline the position of panel walls, mark a line to indicate
the overall length of the Walk-In. Refer to the installation drawing provided,
for the proper diagonal dimension. Care must be taken to properly level and support the panels with shims. An un even floor results in a faulty solution.

Before you begin place polyethylene sheathing or 50 lb. asphalt paper
floor panel and existing floor.

1.On your level floor end section in the correct location according to the diagram provided. Be sure the panel is level in weight and width.

2.Next, place the appropriate panel section into position. After making
sure the edges are flush, lock the panels together.

3.As you assemble your floor, check to insure that the existing floor is
level, and the chalk-line is followed.

4.Follow this procedure till the last panel is in place, this panel must be an
end section


Floorless Installation

1. Prepare site, sweep clean and remove debris.

2. If it is an inside installation adjacent to a building allow enough space for proper ventilation.
(Approximate 3"-5")

3. Establish your chalk line to define panel wall location

4. Refer t your installation drawing, (Provided) for outside and inside dimensions of panel, and Walk-In
length and depth. Check diagram for outside corner-to-corner diagonal dimensions.

5. When points are square, use chalk-line to mark outside panel walls.

6. You may find it easier to mark the interior wall line. Just measure 4" from your outside lines and use chalk
to mark. You may wish to place screeds into position around perimeter at this time.

7. Apply a bead of sealant along each chalk line. Carefully place screed on chalk line pressing down firmly. Next secure screed in position. Note: Use only NSF listed silicone sealant.

Wall assembly

Review installation drawing provided, select a rear corner panel, place it even with outside of base, and partially lock it into position. Select a wall panel on either side of the corner, firmly lock these panels to the
corner, making sure tops are level. Partially lock panel bottom locks into floor pin, but do not complete locking. Proceed with panels from both directions from corner to provide stability.

Panels must be locked with level top line. A corner panel must be the last panel erected.


When installing entrance doors, we do not suggest removing the door from the doorjamb. Doing so will cause the spring assisted cam-lift hinge to loose the factory set tension, and the door will not operate as manufactured. We suggest using at least two men when handling and erecting, (being extremely
careful not to drop or twist the door section) door panel. When door section is in place check doorjambs for plumb and level proper door closing.

Ceiling panels

Refer to the installation drawing provided, choosing the ceiling panel adjacent to ceiling wall. Place the end panel properly aligning it with corners, front, back, and side wall, but not walls at "open" side. Select next panel, carefully align to end panel and walls. Lock together along center seam. Engage top wall locks into
Ceiling and engage cam-locks, but do not fully tighten. Continue placing ceiling
Panels, aligning, locking and tacking to walls, until last panel is in place. After
carefully checking corners and perimeter complete locking to walls.

Indoor Installation

For a ceiling over 16 ft. long, a suspended support system will be supplied.
Supports should be installed as per engineering drawing supplied by factory.

Outdoor Installation

For outdoor, a rain proof cap is recommended. Outdoor rain proof
membrane is 40-mill polyester fabric. White to reduce heat gain and
save refrigeration cost. The roofing material is fabricated from high
tenacity low shrink polyester that has been coated with a new
thermoplastic alloy. This specialty formulated permanent thermoplastic
alloy will not migrate from the coating like conventional plastecizers;
it is resistant to ultra-violet rays, microorganisms and non-wicking.
The tear and puncture strength from the polyester are superb and
it is impervious to most caustic chemicals, petroleum products and
acids. It also shows no ill effect to heat or cold.

Rain roof installation instructions

Place vinyl roofing material, with flaps underneath, on to of Walk-In across
narrow end. Allow 6" of vinyl to lap over each of the three sides. Carefully
unroll vinyl material until vinyl flap falls into position. Then screw a plate
at each end of flap. Keep placing until your end up with a screw and flap
every 12". Continue to roll out vinyl until the end next flap, and then repeat
screw down process. Once the end is reached, it should lap over the end by at
least 6". Place a bead of caulking around topsides of Walk-In with stainless
steel screws. Fold corners and continue around box on all four sides.
