Step inside an insulated coldroom supplied by us here at Polysec and you will notice the drop in temperature straight away. Our refrigeration units are designed to be temperature efficient, we provide solutions for chill and freeze applications, our systems are cold, cool and ensure a host of products are stored at the optimum temperature.  

Make no mistake about it, our coldrooms are chilly but other natural environments around the planet can be just as freezing too.  To prove this point we list the settings you should avoid if you don’t like extreme bouts of cold temperatures.

International Falls

Located slap bang on the border between Canada and the United States of America, International Falls has a population of around 6 – 7,000 people. The winters here are long and they are also extremely cold, average temperatures in January are lucky to get above three degrees Fahrenheit.


You’ll find Fraser high in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and it has a population of around 900 people.  Yearly temperatures here are severe, averaging a measly 32.5 degrees Fahrenheit. Things don’t really improve a great deal over the summer months where the temperature can drop down as low as 29 degrees Fahrenheit during June.


February 6th 1933 was a monumental day for the residents of Oymyakon, Russia. The villagers were already used to severe bouts of freezing temperatures but a record breaking low of minus 90 degrees Fahrenheit took them totally by surprise.  It’s not unusual for the village to experience extreme lows of minus 52 degrees on an annual basis.


Around 1,400 people reside in Verkhoyansk, Russia, bravely living in temperatures that average minus 50.4 degrees during the winter months.  The dress code here is strictly fur hats and coats, residents like to layer up and try to stay indoors as much as possible when it gets really cold.

Live in any of these locations and keeping items chilled or frozen is never a problem!
