Green is the trend theme of the international trade fair EuroShop in Düsseldorf. Here, the goal is to make customers feel the same way they do at the weekly market when they enter the store. But more and more refrigerated cabinets are needed in order to present all of the fresh products in an attractive manner. And yet, the energy balance of a super market also needs to be green. Glass doors from SCHOTT Termofrost make it possible to display food products as attractively as possible. They don’t fog up, have a modern design and are easy to clean. Besides, they also lower energy consumption significantly.
Around half of these companies are also planning to invest in more energy efficient lighting solutions. “Our easy to use self-closing glass door systems reduce the temperature exchanges between the cooling chamber and the surrounding environment significantly,” explains Freddy Oblack, General Sales Manager Europe for SCHOTT Termofrost, one of the largest manufacturers of food display products for the commercial refrigeration industry. “This means up to 70 percent of the energy can be saved compared to open refrigerator cabinets,” he adds. Thanks to these large size glass panels, products can be displayed in a vertical manner to save space. The special safety glass used does not fog up and can even be supplied with an anti-reflective coating. In addition, LED or fluorescent lighting can also be integrated into the slim frame system. This means products can be displayed in an attractive manner in a way that saves electricity, yet can hardly be seen.
The door systems from SCHOTT Termofrost have been optimized for use with normal temperatures (up to +2°C) or frozen foods (as low as -25°C). They can be used as either initial equipment for refrigerators that feature glass doors (OEM) or in so-called retrofitting. In fact, new door systems that save more energy can even be installed in existing door fittings from SCHOTT Termofrost.
