Retailers recognise that merchandising is the key to maximising profit in the fast moving retail environment and nowhere is it more important than in the chilled food sector. Here, merchandising means maximum use of valuable floorspace, high visibility for the product and constant temperatures to maintain quality and hygiene.
With the introduction of three ‘Midi’ versions to its recently launched open-chill Cambridge, Verco believes that it now offers an unbeatable range of cabinets to suit all retail refrigeration needs.
The new-generation Cambridge range was developed in response to customer feedback and is now fitted with the latest rotary scroll compressors and features a low-front design of just 410mm.
The seven models in the standard height (2035mm) range, which includes widths from 964mm to 2492mm, are designated C096, C110, C130, C150, C195, C230 and C250, with the C096, C110 and C130 cabinets being designed to fit within the modules of 1m, 1.2m and 1.3m ambient shelving systems.
At 1.5m high, the new Cambridge Midi models share the same widths as the C096, C110 and C130 but have been designed to match the height of gondola units to help improve visibility in supermarkets, convenience stores and forecourt sites.
All ten models in the M1 temperature-rated Cambridge have a horizontal shelf size of 390mm, a 460mm display deck and retain the very small ‘footprint’ of just 677mm, which has made the range a favourite for retail environments where space is at a premium.
Features include automatic re-evaporation of defrost condensate, a tamper-proof electronic controller, compressor protection against excessive condensing temperatures and a sliding base-mounted condensing unit for easy service access. Options include mirror finishes to the internal side walls, night blinds and vertical strip lighting.
The new Cambridge continues to combine the benefits of remote refrigeration such as larger capacities and quiet operation, but with the flexibility of integral installations. Its ability to fit within shelving units also enables retailers to display chilled produce with associated ambient merchandise.
Verco’s Kingston is a range of integral open chill cabinets featuring the latest horizontal scroll compressor technology.
The use of horizontal scroll compressors in this range has allowed Verco to produce a low-front design of just 350mm (60mm lower than the Cambridge) – providing significantly more merchandising space than conventional cabinets.
The range offers three nominal widths – 1.25m, 1.95m and 2.5m – with a standard 2035mm height and depth of 815mm and is available with Verco’s ‘Integrated Styling’.
The Kingston offers benefits such as lower energy consumption, noise output and heat rejection usually only associated with remote cabinets, but with the lower installation cost of integral cabinets. This makes it ideal for convenience stores and smaller supermarkets where remote cabinets are expensive to install and can’t be easily moved to adapt to changing needs.
For customers looking for an alternative for installations where specifications and budgets do not require premium cabinets, Verco’s open-chill Poplar models are ideally suited.
The Poplar cabinet is available for both integral and remote installations and features a low-front design of just 350mm. It offers an M2 (-1/+7°C) temperature rating and is available in three sizes – 1.25m, 1.95m and 2.5m – with a standard 2035mm height and 815mm depth. Features include a tamper-proof electronic controller, compressor protection against excessive condensing temperatures and a sliding base-mounted condensing unit for easy service access.
All Verco’s cabinets are available with the company’s ‘Integrated Styling’ and can be finished in customers’ corporate colour schemes.
