Hoshizaki has expanded its Snowflake Generation II portfolio, with the launch of a series of ‘Drawer Refrigeration Counter’ units in an assortment of sizes and formats.
Said to be able to perform in demanding environments, the new drawer units are available in a collection of six different configurations, each designed to complement the existing models in the Snowflake range.
Engineered from non-corrosive stainless steel and with a standard height of 854mm, (an optional castor kit to raise the working height to 900mm is also available) the counters are designed to be reliable and extend the prep surface within a compact kitchen environment.
For those sites lacking in space, the 22-L1 drawer unit features four equal sized compartments, each suitable for two x 1/1 GN containers. At a length of 1,310mm and a standard depth of 700mm, the unit should achieve kitchen optimisation.
Alternatively the largest unit in the range is the 2222-L1 unit, featuring eight drawers, each suitable for two x 1/1 GN containers. The model features a length of 2,241mm with a standard depth of 700mm, generating a refrigerated storage space of up to 255litres. The four central units that make up the new refrigeration range offer a choice of configurations and space for between seven and 16 1/1 GN trays.
The new units are available with an optional 100mm welded splash back for hygiene and spillage control, while anti-tilt drawers should ensure safety for those operating within the kitchen environment.
A vivid LED display, variable temperature control and operational range of between -2°C – +8°C should further enhance flexibility, while Hoshizaki’s ‘Tropicalised cooling system’ is designed to enable the refrigerators to function in ambient temperatures of up to +40°C.
In line with the Hoshizaki ethos of manufacturing sustainable, energy saving equipment, the new Snowflake Gen II drawer counters feature the latest HC-compliant refrigerant and a high-density polyurethane insulation to deliver ongoing efficiency.
Simon Frost, director of sales and chain accounts at Hoshizaki UK commented: “The Hoshizaki Snowflake Generation II range has been designed to achieve the very highest standards required to successfully operate in a challenging kitchen environment. The new Drawer Refrigeration Counters further expand on this range by strengthening the versatility of the portfolio and delivering enhanced flexibility to a kitchen setup thanks to the distinctive design and added work surface that is achieved from installing one of the new units.
“To aid efficiency and maintenance, the units feature double insulated, extra wide magnetic removable gaskets, automatic defrost and fully compliant HACCP controls.”
As with the existing units in the Snowflake Generation II range, the Drawer Refrigeration Counters come with a 2-year parts and labour warranty as standard.
