Add a display refrigerator to your commercial operation for a boost in impulse purchases and profits. Number of doors, overall width and door opening style are three important specifications to consider when looking for a display refrigerator. You will also want to take a look at the number of shelves that are included as some applications may require additional shelves. Usually each section of an upright merchandiser comes with one to two shelves, but more are available if needed. The doors on display refrigerators can either swing or slide open. Both styles are usually self-closing to keep as much refrigerated air in the unit as possible. When choosing between the opening styles, keep in mind that sliding doors tend to decrease customer traffic congestion. However, swinging doors do allow you to hang racks on the door that contain essential condiments or up-sells related to the contained products.
The cabinet interior itself can be mildly customized with adjustable shelf guides. Countertop display refrigerators are ideally placed near the point of purchase in delis, convenience stores and supermarkets to encourage last minute impulse buys from the customers. The number of doors each model has is related to the overall width. Be sure to check the overall width of countertop display refrigerators to make sure they will fit on your counter or table. Units that are less than 30 inches wide will have a single door. Two-door models range from 36 to 55 inches, and three-door cabinets are usually around 78 inches wide. Again, when selecting a model, check the overall width of your available space and find the glass door merchandiser that best fills that space for maximum product display.
