Think About Placement

Where will your cooler be located? Think about how easy it will be to access your cool and how often your employees will be needing to use it. If you want to create a larger cooler with bigger length, width, height, and more doors, make sure you have a safe and concealed place to store your cooler that makes sense in the function and layout of your morgue.

Walk-In or Roll-In?

This may depend on the volume of your customers and how many deceased people you are storing. If business tends to stay relatively busy, you should look into something that is going to work and function efficiently in your mortuary that doesn’t hinder business. It is also important to consider how much space you have to work with when deciding what kind of cooler you want.

Keep Cost in Mind

Creating a custom cooler can become pricey quickly, especially if you have a lot of ideas and inspiration. If you are working with a budget, it is best to get a quote first so you know how much your project will cost and work from there. Think of necessity first before adding other features out of convenience or want.

How Many Doors Do You Need?

How many doors you want to include in your custom mortuary cooler goes hand-in-hand with how large you would like to make it. It will make sense to include more doors for larger coolers, especially if storing a larger quantity of the deceased. Doors make it easier to access the bodies you are storing and may also make for more efficient working.
