Horizontal cold stores (HCS) are placed on the shelves of upright freezers and hold trays or storage bins. Horizontal outers have access from the front, also known as front access racks.
The benefits of a front access rack means the user only has to remove one tray to gain access to the item required, while side access racks mean the user has to remove the whole unit from the freezer.
Horizontal cold stores are manufactured in aluminium or stainless steel. They can be made in any size to suit the requirements of the end user. Most horizontals are designed to accommodate trays which hold cryoboxes or microtiter plates. Divided trays can also be stored in a horizontal which can maximize the usage from the freezer.
Side Opening Horizontal units also known as side access racks, fit onto shelves of upright freezers to hold cryoboxes or microtiter plates. Side access racks feature a handle on one end to remove it from the freezer, these racks are best suited for longer term storage. Side access racks are manufactured from aluminium or stainless steel. Side access racks can be any size to meet the requirements of the user.
