Before you go shopping for your new glass door refrigeration units, you should think carefully about the purchase. Main considerations include what you will be storing, as well as how much you will be storing and where the glass door refrigeration units will be installed in your building. Custom options are available, so you can match your existing décor, making your space more functional and beautiful at the same time.
Glass Door Refrigeration Units
Here are some things to consider as you look for your new glass door refrigeration units:

  • Number of needed sections: It is better to err on the side of a unit that is too big if you have the floor space. If your glass door refrigeration unit is overfilled, it will not be able to operate efficiently and may result in product spoilage or customers being dissatisfied with the temperature of their purchases.
  • Types of desired doors: Swinging doors are hung on hinges and are less likely to be left open, as they can be self-closing. Sliding doors are best where space is at a premium or if you want the doors to be easier to open. However, they are more likely to be left open, costing you money.
  • Types of shelving: Standard shelving for glass door refrigeration units is usually steel that has been coated with plastic, but it may be worth paying for upgraded stainless steel. Stainless steel will last longer and need to be replaced less often.
  • Compressor locations: Top compressors don’t get as dirty, but they are harder to access when service is necessary. Bottom compressors need to be cleaned more often and have less usable space due to the refrigeration lines that must be installed in the back of the unit.
