When it comes to businesses such as convenience stores, many items are essential to the profitability of the business, such is the case with a display freezer. A display freezer can usually be found in most convenience stores and other businesses where frozen foods are sold. The following article will go on to highlight what to look for in a display freezer.
When shopping for a display freezer, two key features are very important. First, make sure to purchase a display freezer that is built using polyurethane insulation. When compared to extruded polystyrene, polyurethane provides a higher R-value while also being more durable. Extruded polystyrene is the same pink foam board that you can find at any home improvement store. Polyurethane on the other hand is an actual two-part compound that is mixed together as it’s shot into the panel. This then hardens and also acts as an adhesive to better hold down the metal your display freezer panels are clad with.
Next, be sure to look for a display freezer that is built using wood frame construction. Wood frame construction provides a very solid frame for your display freezer that will allow it to stand up to the daily abuse it will receive from customers and vendors. Your display freezer will be used constantly and will have people grabbing products from it several times per day, you want to make sure it can withstand this constant use. With wood frame construction, you can rest easy knowing that your display freezer will be around for years to come.
When it comes to refrigeration equipment and glass doors, make sure that you’re buying from a company that sells quality components. Make sure that the condenser, coil(s), and glass display doors that come with the unit are made by reputable companies. After all, you’re investing a lot of money into your display freezer so it’s important to fully understand what you’re being quoted.
