We are an industry leader offering national refrigeration sales, hire & rent to own options. Whatever your business size, we have a solution.

Cold Display Solutions provides hire and sales of a wide range of refrigeration products to industries all over Australia.

Our products are available for food events, corporate functions, festivals, retail outlets and shop refurbishments to name a few.

Cold Display Solutions was previously owned by Able Refrigeration. Able Refrigeration began as a refrigeration maintenance and sales company over 10 years ago. During this time, we regularly supplied rental fridges to our clients and as the demand for hire equipment grew, we expanded our operations across the eastern seaboard.

Cold Display Solutions is now the core of our business. Our expertise in the refrigeration industry allows us to offer you the right equipment for the job, every time.
Whether you need event refrigeration hire, long term refrigeration rental, with or without a refrigeration maintenance contract, we can look after you.

We are a ARC TICK licensed company -This means we are licensed to re-gas hold and reclaim refrigerant – all part of our complete service!

Thankfully I came across Cold Display Solutions, my phone call was answered immediately by a very professional sales person – Steve, he explained my options and followed up with an email as promised.

Hi Stephen, just a short note to convey our appreciation for the incredible response we received when we had an issue with our fridge. We could not have expected any better effort than we experienced. Everything happened as we were told it would happen. Your company didn’t miss a beat. That you once again.

Cold Display Solutions supplied and delivered our 3 door fridge in 2015 and it is still going strong today. I have just reordered another 3 door fridge and 3 door freezer this month. Stephen gave us a great price and warranty on both units. We have rented open display units in the past and the maintenance and serving was always prompt and efficient. Their customer support is excellent. I would definitely recommend them for any commercial fridge or freezer needs.

Commercial fridges and freezers, unlike the domestic models, are specifically made to store large quantities of food. Therefore, they are designed to be big in size, durable, use more energy, and meet the demands of a restaurant kitchen or any commercial kitchens.

Commercial fridges and freezers are not a luxury that a business can have. It is required by law. There are strict health and safety laws that require certain perishable products to be stored at certain temperatures, something that fridges designed for homes are incapable of satisfying. That’s why commercial ones are specifically engineered for these purposes while being efficient in energy consumption.

If you are in the industry dealing with produce, meat, and other consumable goods, you have to know the necessary information about which fridge and freezer to buy or rent. Vegetables, fruits, meats, ice creams, drinks, and other products need to be stored at a certain temperature. If you fail to do this, these consumable goods will go bad and become a loss for your business.
