What to think about when choosing an industrial refrigerator

Of course, that an industrial refrigerated cabinet is one of the most important items of restaurant equipment. When choosing a refrigerator for a restaurant, there is a line of brands, models and sizes to choose from, but you also have a choice regarding the design of a refrigerator. All industrial refrigerated cabinets have their advantages, but the best cabinets depend on the following factors.

Insulation and cooling
Refrigerators with solid doors and glass doors must be considered in terms of insulation. Solid door models have more insulation than glass door models, keeping food fresh. It’s a general rule in the restaurant industry that you should store raw foods in a solid door refrigerator. These models are also more energy efficient than models with glass doors, however, the contents inside are not so easily visible, which means that your employees can stand in front of the refrigerator and look for the right products for a long time.Refrigerators with a glass door are more often used for merchandising, although they can also be used for storage – you need to consider the factors listed below when making a purchase.

Cleaning needs
An important factor to consider is the need to clean both types of industrial refrigerators. Refrigerators with a glass door, since they have a glass door at the front, tend to stain and should be cleaned more regularly. Refrigerators with a solid door, do not have glass, they have a solid stainless steel construction on their outer side; they require external cleaning, but stains will not appear on them as on a glass door. If the refrigerator is visible to visitors, you might think about a cleanliness factor when considering which door you want your industrial refrigerator to have.

Visibility Benefits
Another thing to consider when buying an industrial refrigerator is visibility. What do you want your visitors to see? What do you want your employees to see? Glass refrigerated doors make it easy to see food inside, which can help you keep order without opening the refrigerator. However, if you do not want your customers to see the contents of your refrigerator, you can hide it. Some restaurants with open, visible kitchens may use a fridge with a glass door for visitor visibility.

When you plan to buy an industrial refrigerator for your business, you should consider how it will be used. Will it be used often? Would you like to make your refrigerated cabinets visible to visitors? The answer to these questions, guided by the above information, will help you make the right choice.
