    Deer larders

    Cold room SD1 (5.75m)

    Most cold rooms are designed for the catering trade. Due to recent discussions on we formulated a design specifically for use as the game larder. These units will be delivered flat packed for ready assembly. They are designed for indoor use so ideally they are part of a larger lardering solution such as an outbuilding. Internally they are provided with a hanging rail and three hooks (supplied loose). One complaint common to the discussions was lack of hanging height. Referring to internal dimensions we increased the roof height to 2.475m (8.12 Feet). Another observation was the space to move inside the room. This we set at 1.525m (5 Feet) x 1.525m (5 Feet). This gives ample room to lift a carcase or employ a pulley to hang a red stag. The library picture used shows the door and fridge unit on the front wall. In certain circumstances that may not be ideal so you choose door and fridge position to suit your location. Another concern was the standard of insulation on the walls. This we have gone for the heavy duty 75mm (3) insulation for the walls. The fridge unit we have again set at a size suitable for a larger room. While adding little to the initial cost it would allow additional panels to be added to increase the larder without the expense of changing this item. The increased refrigeration unit capacity also ensures the temperature remains constant when additional carcases are added. As you can imagine when a fresh carcase is added a lot of cooler air is lost through the door, then with fresh carcases inserted the larger unit will return the room to its seven degrees quicker and using less energy. The design has been submitted to the manufacturer and costings returned. We will continue to explore further avenues and sizes. Larger applications can be quoted for through direct contact with Tim at . Supply, installation and invoicing will also be through Stirling Consulting allowing VAT to be recovered by those registered. The cold room SD1 sets the benchmark in what we are trying to provide. It is a fully specked unit complying with all current regulations and environmental approved for food use.
    Delivery and Installation

    While these units are within the capabilities of a good DIY person it is not advised. As you must appreciate it would be difficult to implement a guarantee if the unit was damaged in transit. No-one would be likely to put their hands up as responsible. For the time being we are offering a days labour to deliver and assemble your unit. If you are within a reasonable distance of Central Scotland there would be a mileage charge only to cover fuel. Further afield we would give you a quote individually to recover our costs. You could assemble yourself by taking direct delivery but Stirling Consulting could not take any responsibility for accidental damage.

    Set up pre delivery.
    It would be essential that the covered premises where construction is to take place has a firm level base, has sufficient and clear access and has a 13 amp 240v supply. Erection time should be approximately three hours.
