Painting Industrial and Commercial Freezers
By Painters USA Team
— Last updated December 04, 2022
Many commercial and industrial facilities that handle food maintain large freezers. Packing and processing plants, grocery stores, restaurants, schools and hospitals, to name a few, use walk-in freezers for years on end. Functioning freezers do not usually need very frequent coating maintenance, but when they inevitably fall into disrepair or become difficult to clean, it is time for refinishing. Applying paint or coatings to a freezer involves several factors that require painting contractors with expertise.
First, coatings must comply with requirements from the USDA and local health department, such as ANSI/NSF Standard 51, since the surfaces in freezers may come into contact with food. Not just any paint will do. Permits are usually required for commercial freezer rehabilitation, so it is highly important that the proper coatings are applied, and in the correct way, so that it will be a smooth and timely project.
It is also necessary to use special low temperature coatings that will not become brittle or crack in the freezing temperatures. It is crucial that painting contractors qualified to paint freezers are knowledgeable about the proper materials for both food safety and temperature compatibility, such as low temperature paints or epoxy floor coatings.
From a single freezer floor coating to a complete rehabilitation, painting a freezer will interrupt its use temporarily, which would pose a significant cost and inconvenience if not done quickly and at the proper time. That's why at PAINTERS USA we pride ourselves on such timeliness in all our projects, and are flexible to meet your scheduling needs for freezer painting, whether it be weekends or late nights.
