Frankfurt, Germany, 29 October 2018: Glass doors can reduce energy consumption by 30-60%, compared to open refrigerated cabinets, said Edwige Guillon, Sales Director Food Display, EMEA, Schott, making a case for the company’s range of offerings for refrigerated cabinets and cold rooms in retail outlets. “This figure varies depending on the number of openings per day and the temperature in the shop, among other factors,” she added.

Guillon stressed that the company has been dedicated to the development of energy-efficient solutions and, for this reason, the increasingly stringent regulations related to cold chain have not had significant impact on the product portfolio. “The market requires glass doors for commercial chiller cabinets that offer thermal isolation with the best U-Values,” she said. “Today, all our glass doors for chiller cabinets are double-glazed and our freezer cabinets have triple-insulation glass units. Schott developed its product range accordingly and offers glass door systems with the best possible thermal isolation.”

Sharing trends in Germany’s commercial refrigeration sector, Guillon said that the visual impact of glass doors for refrigeration cabinets or cold rooms have to stand out, as most standard glass doors achieve similarly high U-values and are double-glazed. Food retail sectors, she said, which include supermarkets, discount stores and convenience stores, aim to offer high visibility at point of sale to provide customers maximum orientation. “Well-designed glass doors turn a refrigeration cabinet into a showcase,” she added, highlighting the company’s Termofrost Smart Access door, which, she said, received the German Design Award in Gold for its new opening features and impressive design.
