Temperature Control

High Value inventories such as Vaccines and Medicine require concise temperatures to ensure safe storage. Fluctuations in temperature can lead to products becoming unstable, reducing their efficacy and making them unsafe for use. These issues mean increased waste, which often can have dramatic cost implications.

CRS offer state of the art Remote Temperature Control to ensure the required storage temperature is maintained and the environment inside the units never falls out-side of the safe storage ranges for products. Our Temperature Control system feature real-time reporting and early warning alarms if temperature fluctuation begins to occur.

Pharmaceutical Goods, such as Vaccines and Medicines are often high-value inventory and as such need adequate security measure in place to protect them from theft of tampering. Out units feature a range of locking solutions which are completely tamper proof.


In most cases, our Cold Stores will be situated outside, exposed to the elements. All of our units are completely weather-proof to ensure the safety of stored goods. The safety of your temperature sensitive goods is of utmost importance to us, and where necessary we will recommend Backup refrigeration systems offering full Redundancy on all critical features.

We understand that that that the safety & well-being of employees using the cold stores will also be a foremost concern. Our units offer features to enhance a unit’s usability and provide a safe working environment within the container. All our units feature easy open doors, interior LED lighting throughout, quality non-slip flooring and specialised person-trap alarms.
