Add Mobile Refrigeration To Your Supermarket

What Are the Advantages of Using an Open-air Cooler?

An open-air cooler holds many advantages over other types of commercial refrigerators. One is that rather than having patrons and food-service crew worry about holding open a door when choosing or placing products inside an open deli case, merchandise or items stocked inside these types of industrial refrigerators can easily be pulled out or stocked inside the unit.

Also, these types of commercial coolers often differ in their refrigeration process. Open-air coolers force a stream of air, or air curtain, across the opening of the refrigerator help keep cold air inside.

In terms of type, you can choose from either a horizontal or vertical open-air cooler depending on what you require for your grocery store, convenience store, supermarket, deli, gasoline station, coffee shop, restaurant, or bar. Choosing whether you want a vertical or horizontal open-air cooler depends on the space of your establishment. For instance, if you have lots of horizontal space and several refrigerated food products to display, a horizontal open-air cooler would be perfect. A vertical open-air cooler, on the other hand, would be great if the opposite is true: that is, if you have a narrow opening but want to have refrigerated items easily accessible.

Whichever type of open-air cooler you select, you might also want to think about how many shelves you want for your open case refrigeration unit. Shelving is actually important because the number of shelves dictates how many items you can display in the available space you have in your open-air cooler. Some shelves can actually be tilted slightly to help increase the visibility of the merchandise.
