Thread: Cold room height

  1. #1

    Cold room height

    I am in the process of building an outside cold room what do you consider to be the minimum internal height to the hanging hook. Reds and a few pigs will be going in I am thinking on the lines of 8 foot ????? to the hook 9 to the roof ????

    Just make it high enough so that you can install a winch-something i didn't do and now regret.

    I'd go 3m if you can. ATV winch's are probably better in a wet environment as they run at 12V which is safer. Mine runs off a car battery with a solar trickle charger. Hanging from the pelvic bone can reduce height required but the haunches set at an awkward angle for butchering apparently?
    Pictures here of a 300lb larder weight red hung in a 1.8m chiller by such means to give you an idea.

    Yes I have one of these in the Barn where the cold room is being built I think one of the geared hand ones will probably be enough for inside the room Thanks for the tip
