The PRS-2 Pre-Fabricated Series of Indoor and Outdoor Walk-In Coolers by Master-Bilt offers an unbeatable solution to your cooling and freezing demands, coupling the reliability of Master-Bilt’s renowned panels with the convenience of an all-in-one refrigeration system. Investing in a walk-in cooler is a big deal which is why buying from a trustworthy, established brand like Master-Bilt is crucial. In this quick article we break down the key reasons to buy a PRS-2 along with how it will benefit your business:

The Panels & Insulation

Master-Bilt’s walk-in panels are 4” thick with a 26 gauge stucco galvalume finish and feature a tongue and groove construction that locks in place forming a solid seal. Add to this Master-Bilt’s unique Cam-Lock system which creates a tight fit in between panels and enables you to easily take the panels apart if your walk-in needs relocation. (All you need is a factory-supplied 5/16” allen wrench to engage the cam-lock.) As far as insulation, Master-Bilt uses a foamed-in-place polyurethane which is injected into the panel interior and “expansion-cured for consitent density and no uninsulated areas within the panel.” Some key features of using this kind of insulation include but are not limited to its high resistance to heat flow, its 97% closed cell content which gives it superior moisture resistance, its zero ozone depletion potential thanks to the 245a blowing agent, its efficient energy retaining properties, and the added strength and reliability that it adds to the box.

The Floors

 When it comes to flooring, the two things that are of top importance are its strength and overall durability. With the constant traffic going in and out along with the heavy loads of product brought in on material handling equipment, you will need a floor that can hold up and handle the stress. All Master-Bilt floors are built standard with a 0.080 textured aluminum surface with added traction to reduce the risk of slips and other accidents in moist conditions. Furthermore, the corners are coved and easy to clean earning them an NSF certification. Master-Bilt floors will support 600 pounds of load per square foot (stationary load).

The Door

Arguably the most important consideration of a walk-in cooler is the door; it is the barrier between your perishable goods and the warm temperatures outdoors that threaten them. Master-Bilt outfits their walk-in coolers with a V-Series door which is framed in a heavy-duty vinyl and a durable 10 gauge steel. One of the things that often happens with a heavy walk-in door over time is sagging. To prevent this from happening, Master-Bilt has attached a 1/4” thick steel plate to the frame at each of the hinge locations, enhancing the strength and structural integrity of the door. These hinge backing plates (pictured above right) are adjustable allowing you to easily correct the door if it becomes unlevel over time. In addition, cam-locks are added to the frame sides to ensure the connection between the door and the surrounding panels is tight. Other beneficial features include the door’s deadbolt locking handle, the hydraulic door closure and a safety release on the interior of the walk-in to prevent getting locked in. (Note that the doors on the walk-in freezers have heated openings to reduce the risk of door freeze-ups.) These doors will be 78” high with the choice of a 26”, 30” or 36” width which should be specified when ordering in addition to specifiying a left or right hinged door.

The Packaged Refrigeration Unit

The PRS-2 Series comes equipped with a refrigeration system that is fully assembled, charged, run tested, and ready to be mounted on the top of your cooler or freezer. This convenient design is outfitted with the condensing unit and the evaporator coil all in one package. Indoor models come standard with a power cord and a condensate evaporator pan. For outdoor model, the refrigeration unit comes standard with a crankcase heater, a drainline heater, a head master and a weather hood.

 Easy Install

The PRS-2 is extremely easy to install thanks to the aforementioned Cam-Lock panels which allow the end user an accurate, speedy assembly. Best yet, there is no piping involved so refrigeration labor costs are kept to a minimum. As was mentioned earlier, most indoor models have a simple power cord so installation is a breeze.

 Great Warranty Terms

Master-Bilt’s PRS-2 Series covers Parts for 1 year, Labor for 18 months, the Compressor for 5 years and the Panels for 10 years.
