A Guide to Norlake Kold Locker Model Numbers

Norlake manufactures a number of walk-in cooler and freezer options, including those in the Kold Locker line. These are popular because standard models are eligible for same-day shipping, but sorting through the large variety of sizes and corresponding model numbers can seem like a daunting task. To help you decide which Kold Locker walk-in to order, Norlake has provided a guide to deciphering the walk-in line's model numbers.

Norlake Kold Locker Nomenclature

As laid out in the table below, the model numbers for Norlake walk-ins from the Kold Locker series indicate the unit's intended place of installation, refrigeration type, height, width, location of the refrigeration system, and direction of the door hinge.

This naming convention means an indoor walk-in cooler that has a floor, a ceiling-mounted refrigeration system, a right-hinged door, a height of 6 feet 7 inches, a width of 8 feet, and a length of 8 feet will have the model number KLB88-CR. An outdoor walk-in cooler with the model number KODB7768-CL has a floor, a ceiling-mounted refrigeration system, a left-hinged door, a height of 7 feet 7 inches, a width of 6 feet, and a length of 8 feet. However, units with heights of 6 feet 7 inches that have a floor will not have a height included in the model number.
