Moffat has launched a multi-tier cold display unit that it says combines excellent temperature control with a stylish ‘flat glass’ design.
The model was developed in conjunction with Aspen Services, on behalf of a garden centre that was completely revamping its catering facilities.
“The customer had a very clear idea of the display they wanted,” said Aspen’s managing director Ian Sweeten. “It needed to be enclosed, as everything is served rather than grab and go. They didn’t want a standard design, so we approached Moffat to ask them to help.”
The resultant design is Moffat’s new flat glass display. Essentially a sheer glass box, it is two metres wide, and has three shelves to give maximum display space. Rear sliding glass doors give easy access for staff to serve customers or restock food.
A transverse compressor, mounted on the back of the unit, eliminates the need for a grill at the front, which keeps the display unit’s appearance clean and simple.
Inside the unit, cold air is blown up the back of the cabinet, cascading over the shelves, and is then sucked back into the refrigeration system to be ‘re-chilled’. This design minimises energy consumption, since the chilled air is recycled, and ensures the temperature is constant throughout the cabinet.
