FEM has added Alto-Shaam BQ2 banquet trolleys to its portfolio.
Designed to hold hot food safely by keeping it moist without condensation, the units can house plates or multi-portion pans.
FEM offers three sizes of BQ2 trolley, with capacities ranging from 109kg, or 96 covered plates measuring 254mm (10”), up to 218kg, or 192 plates.
The Alto-Shaam Halo Heat system is claimed to supply a gentle heat that surrounds the food, and is uniform throughout the cabinet. This should means there’s no need to add moisture or steam. The electronic thermostat is adjustable from 16 to 93°C.
The trolleys are manufactured from stainless steel, inside and out, and run off a 13A supply. Their 152mm castors and transport handles should make them easily manoeuvrable, while bumper surrounds protect them in transit.
The insulation is designed to allow them to be transported over long distances with minimal loss of heat, provided the doors remain shut. Once at the dining area, they can be plugged in and the food held until required.
FEM supplies a full range of accessories so that the banquet trolleys can be adapted for any type of holding system, including covered plates, covered or uncovered plate carriers, trays and serving pans.
