Fitting aerofoils to open-fronted multi-deck cabinets is proven to reduce energy consumption by up to 40%, as verified by lab testing in ISO conditions. As well as the consequent cost savings to retailers, this also represents a major reduction to their carbon footprint.
Other benefits include reduced product shrinkage due to the stabilising effect that aerofoils have on product temperatures within the cabinet. An indirect benefit is to create warmer shopping aisles due to the reduced cold-air spill, thereby improving shopper comfort and extending browsing time.
In comparison with glass doors, aerofoils are a barrier-free solution to the problem of cold-air spill, and a much less expensive, more robust alternative requiring minimal maintenance.
The aerofoils themselves are made from 100% recycled aluminium, which requires only 5% of the energy required to produce new aluminium. We have, therefore, further enhanced the technology's energy-saving credentials by reducing our upstream manufacturing footprint.
