what we do...
is an innovative, award-winning technology company focused on improving energy and temperature performance in retail refrigeration. We work in partnership with Williams Advanced Engineering in our design, modelling and testing of new technology, and with our retail clients in delivery of bespoke solutions for commercialisation.
We pioneered shelf-edge technology for the retail sector in 2013. Our patented Aerofoil is the only shelf-edge product to marry class-leading performance with a customer-friendly, single profiled blade and ticket-strip. It's why the UK’s top three and best-known grocers have specified Aerofoils over other shelf-edge technology.
Our Vortex technology works in harmony with the Aerofoil by addressing other inefficiencies in the flow of cold air in and around the cabinet. Vortex boosts energy and temperature performance to levels comparable with glass doors, yet without the cost and maintenance overheads.
We are the only company to offer our shelf-edge technology independently of OEMs, which means our retail clients have complete freedom of choice in their selection of cabinets with Aerofoils already integrated.
