Refrigerated cabinets have always presented a dilemma due to their open construction for access and product visualisation. The downside is that loss of temperature is constant throughout the opening hours of the store with night blinds utilised to minimise the loss at other times.
A simple solution is to install Eis-kalt clear glazed doors to refrigerated cabinets to minimise temperature loss at all times.
Contemporary, minimalist hinges and clear doors do not impair the appearance of the merchandised products. The doors can be opened up to 180º with automatic closing when the door is opened less than 25º.
Independent studies by a major supermarket chain were undertaken before and after the energy saving doors were fitted to assess the cost saving. The results showed up to 40% reduction in refrigeration running costs and positive customer and staff feedback.
“Eis-kalt Energy Saving Doors” are an ECA Approved Product
As awareness and concern for the environment increases, as well as a desire to minimise running costs, Eis-kalt (UK) Ltd have further developed our product range to ensure that energy efficiency is maximised.
To support this and provide benefit to our customers, Eis-kalt have recently gained approval of our “Energy Saving Doors” which are now included on the ECA list from February 2011.
