Advantages of Mortuary Refrigerators

Under normal procedures, the storage of human corpses may range from a few hours to a few days. In some rare cases though, a few weeks or longer may be needed. This means that preventing or delaying the bodies from decomposition is necessary, which is why a refrigerated environment is recommended.
