We at American Cooler serve a wide variety of customers on a daily basis, many of which are people in the supermarket industry looking for supermarket equipment. When it comes to what parts these customers are looking for, it can vary greatly. The following article will go on to highlight some of the more common items people in the supermarket industry routinely inquire about. This can be beneficial to those who are considering going into the supermarket business as it will give a good idea of what to look for when it comes to maintaining their walk in cooler systems.
When it comes to supermarket equipment, one of the most common categories inquired about is replacement door hardware and for good reason. Your walk in cooler or freezer door is the portal to and from your unit. It gets the most use and therefore the most abuse. If your door isn’t sealing properly than you will be leaking cold air which is the same thing as leaking your hard earned money. Some of the most important supermarket equipment pieces to check on when it comes to doors are the hinges, latch and strikes and gasket. The hinges allow your door to open and close smoothly. They also help form a tight seal when in good working condition. If your hinges are bent or broken, than your door will not function properly. The latch and strike is a very important piece of supermarket equipment. It functions are your piece that allows your door to open and close. If either the latch or the strike is damaged, than your door will not close properly and you will again be leaking cold air. Lastly, your gasket is a vital piece of supermarket equipment. Your gasket must be in great shape and be in its proper place. Many times, gasket will lose its grip over time since many are applied using a self adhesive backing. If this is the case with your gasket, be for certain that you get it replaced as soon as possible. Your hinges and your latch and strike can be in perfect condition but it won’t do you any good if your gasket is worn out!
Another popular category of supermarket equipment is glass doors and shelving. You will be hard pressed to walk in to any supermarket today and not see a display cooler that is lined with glass doors. Glass doors offer high visibility of your product while also doing a decent job of holding in your cold air. If you’re going to purchase glass doors, than you’re going to want shelves. Shelving is a very critical item when it comes to supermarket equipment. After all, why would you spend all of that money on your walk in cooler or walk in freezer and glass doors and not have anything to display your product? Shelving comes in many different sizes but one of the most popular is the 27″ deep flat white shelves. These shelves are popular because they provide a lot of surface area for your product and the white color really brightens up the interior of the cooler.
