Add Mobile Refrigeration To Your Supermarket

Open-air Cooler Buyers' Guide

Open-air coolers, a popular way to increase impulse buys, can be vertical or horizontal. Regardless of the style of merchandiser you choose, all have one feature in common: no doors. In place of the insulation that doors provide, these units have a wall of air that constantly circulates in front of the products, keeping refrigerated items at the proper temperatures and ensuring product safety. This air wall not only helps to maintain temperatures, it also prevents dirt, insects, and other unsanitary material from entering the unit. Because nothing is blocking the customer’s view of the cooler’s interior, your products will receive better exposure.

ALK Cool will offer you a better choice for open-air cooler. We have horizontal open-air coolers and island-style open-air coolers.

Horizontal Open-air Coolers

A horizontal air curtain refrigerator, which is between 42 and 46 inches tall, puts the products it is merchandising at about waist height. In some models called dual service coolers, unrefrigerated shelves made for holding dry goods add to this height. Cooler widths range from 28 to 120 inches wide and have two or three levels to display products.

Horizontal units are available with white, black, and stainless-steel exteriors. We have glass sides to give customers maximum visibility of the products inside. Also, we use LED lighting, which are brighter and more energy-efficient. Our models have a night curtain to help conserve energy at night or when your business is closed.

The operation temperature is from 35.6℉ to 46.4℉ and it’s ideal for  prepared cake, iced cold coffee, packed meat and bottled juice.

Island-style Open-air Coolers

Another type of open-air merchandiser is the island-style cooler. These models are often a combination of the vertical and horizontal types, with a low base that can hold products. These units are not made to be placed against a wall, instead offering 360-degree merchandising.

The operation temperature is from 35.6℉ to 46.4℉ and it’s ideal for beverage, Sushi, sandwich, packed fruit and salad.
