New glass door systems from SCHOTT improve presentation of chilled products and save energy

New SCHOTT glass door systems enable retailers to combine attractive chilled foods presentation with up to 60 percent lower energy consumption

New glass door systems from SCHOTT Termofrost® meet the needs of food retailers by enabling products to be displayed in an attractive manner inside coolers, and significantly reduce electricity costs. The company unveiled new new glass door systems at the Euroshop trade exhibition (Düsseldorf, February 16-20, 2014, Booth 17/D02): SCHOTT Termofrost® AGD 3 offers a perfect view of food products, thanks to its slim design, and still exhibits the necessary stability. In addition, the glass expert will also be presenting an improved version of its sliding door system SCHOTT Termofrost® SDS 2. Here, too, presentation of products has been enhanced by using a larger display area. Both systems can reduce energy consumption by up to 60 percent energy compared with open refrigeration cabinets.

SCHOTT Termofrost® AGD 3 is also quite attractive in terms of its appearance thanks to its elegant design. Retailers can present milk products, meats and beverages in an appealing manner so that they are easily visible to customers. Among other applications, this system is ideally suited for retrofit projects in which grocery stores decide to have their existing cooling counters equipped with doors. Subsequent installation is easy because SCHOTT already pre-mounts the frame that holds the doors prior to delivery. The new system is particularly well-suited for saving energy by closing open refrigeration units with glass door systems.

The space-saving sliding door system SCHOTT Termofrost® SDS 2 represents an ideal solution for smaller grocery stores. SCHOTT will also be presenting an optimized version of this product family at Euroshop. The new design of the bottom frame profile makes cleaning easier because it doesn’t have a sliding rail. Furthermore, an integrated damper system allows for soft opening and closing. This system also ensures good visibility and attractive presentation of products by using larger glass surfaces and slimmer profiles.

With its self-closing, condensation-free door systems, SCHOTT helps the food retail industry to present foods more appealing and thus trigger the customer’s decision to buy. These closed refrigerator systems also offer three advantages in terms of the room climate: The products are kept cool while the customer is enjoying a comfortable room temperature. At the same time, energy costs are kept relatively low.

The door and frame systems from SCHOTT Termofrost® consist of single, double, or triple insulating glass and are ideally suited for refrigerated products up to +2°C and deep-freeze products down to -25°C. Tempered safety glass that stands up to everyday use in a supermarket is used here. These products also come in various sizes and designs to cover the many different areas of application in food retail. Customized manufacturing is also possible in order to meet individual needs.
