For more than 30 years, Clade has led the Co2 refrigeration sector with innovative design, precise manufacturing, and unbeatable attention to detail. With our expertise, we’re able to design an entire Co2 refrigeration system for your home or business that is completely catered to your property and needs. Refrigeration design is part of our broader manufacture, installation, and maintenance package, but we also offer it as a standalone service.


The Clade refrigeration design process is thorough. We value research and conduct as much as necessary to get the system right. We spend a great deal of time in the planning and specification phases before we start designing to ensure we have all of your requirements in mind. During these stages of the process, client communication is vital. Our designers will speak with you regularly to discuss overcoming technical issues and how to meet particular requirements. If needed, we can also design a Co2 refrigeration solution that integrates with your existing system.


Research and planning are integral to our design process, and we incorporate your feedback and specifications into the design of your new refrigeration system. We consult with you extensively so we can get it right the first time.


After designing your bespoke refrigeration system, our engineers will install it on your property. We can ensure that it’s set up and turned on properly, as well as conduct preliminary checks to confirm it functions as it should.


Once installation and initial systems checks are complete, we will walk you through your new system to show you how it works. We won’t leave until you’re confident that you understand your new refrigeration system.


As experts in Co2 refrigeration, we design systems that dramatically improve the efficiency of commercial refrigeration. Our refrigeration solutions help reduce the carbon footprint of your business, helping you future-proof your property against rising energy costs and carbon taxes. We have many years of experience designing innovative heating, cooling, and refrigeration solutions, and our attention to detail ensures the highest quality products. At Clade, we also take customer experience very seriously and work to meet your needs and communicate frequently about your new refrigeration system. Expertise, passion for sustainable refrigeration, and attention to customer service make Clade the best choice for your Co2 refrigerator.

We look at the following factors throughout the refrigeration design process:

  • Property type: domestic or commercial
  • Building specifics: age, size, access points, layout, etc
  • Existing systems: if integration is possible
  • How to vent, infiltrate, and manipulate fabric heat gains and losses
  • Budget, running costs, timeline
  • Impact on the environment
  • Future-proofing: scaling the system up or down, flexibility
  • Industry regulations and legislation compliance

CO2 is considered an environmentally friendly gas, with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 1. It is a natural refrigerant because it is not manufactured in a chemical plant. Using Clade’s refrigeration systems can, therefore, help you reduce your carbon footprint significantly.

Clade has been committed to high-quality refrigeration and engineering services for more than 36 years. In the last few years, Clade moved toward natural refrigerants and deployed over 500 natural refrigerant products across the UK. With a history of rigorously designing and manufacturing high-quality products and a desire to innovate within the refrigeration sector, Clade is at the forefront of the move to more eco-friendly refrigeration and heat pumps.

We use CO2 refrigerant in all of our refrigeration systems, and CO2 is considered an eco-friendly gas because of its low Global Warming Potential (GWP). It is non-flammable and has low toxicity levels, so it’s considered a high-safety refrigerant. Additionally, it’s an effective refrigerant with excellent thermo-physical properties and a higher volumetric capacity than conventional refrigerants.

Clade’s refrigeration solutions are comprehensive. Our team of engineers can design your refrigeration system and manufacture and supply it from our product range. Then, our installation team will ensure your new refrigeration system is fully functional and that you’re aware of how to use it. Finally, our after sales support team can provide ongoing maintenance to ensure continued functionality of your refrigeration system. You can pick and choose as many or as few of our services to suit your requirements as needed.
