Reach-in Refrigerators and Freezers
Reach-in refrigerators and freezers are the backbone to any restaurant kitchen and there are many options to choose
from and there is good reason to choose one option over the other based on the needs of your business.
Can be stainless steel or aluminum. Much easier to keep clean than glass doors. Good for use in a kitchen where the refrigerated units are more likely to be organized.
Great for front of the house merchandising or storage near wait stations. It is easy to see what is inside without opening the doors and letting cold air escape.
If you have a very mixed use kitchen you might benefit from a mixed door configuration. Get the best of both worlds with a half glass/half solid door for great organization and a clear view.
|Single Section||19-24 cubic feet of storage
|Two sections||24-35 cubic feet of storage
|Three sections||72 cubic feet of storage
|More storage space but less energy efficient
|Less storage space but more energy efficient.
Loading and unloading is much easier and doors have a 90° or 120° stay open feature. Door swing has the potential to block pathways and hinder traffic.
Only available on refrigerators. Good for uses in areas where space is limited, however, only one door can be open at a time.
