Moffat’s bespoke manufacturing division has unveiled an innovative ‘square’ heated display unit designed to preserve the condition of cooked food.
The Squared Display Servery unit, which is divided into square display areas, was originally built for a customer looking alternative unit promote its savoury products, which were all served alongside potato wedges.
The unit is divided into three main sections. In the centre is a potato wedge scuttle, while on either side are three shelf display areas, holding a selection of savoury products. Each of the unit’s three main sections has its own temperature and light controls.
The shelves, which are standard 1/1 gastronorm, have toughened glass thermo-panel insets with built-in elements. These guarantee even distribution of heat, eliminating hot spots, distortion and discoloration.
The unit has a 10mm-thick UV-bonded glass screen to top, sides and has a worktop shelf to assist with service. The controls are housed in the base of the unit for easy access.
John Wannan, sales and marketing manager at Moffat, said: “We used a special heating system to ensure different product options stay at the correct temperature, without drying out or becoming soggy.”
The unit was initially commissioned by Aaroc Solutions. Managing director Kevan Jack said: “The client was after something unique, bespoke and, of course, functional. The Moffat Squared Display Servery certainly fits the bill.”
