Lanarkshire-based Aaroc Solutions has just completed a servery project which required a unique heated display.
The dealer worked with its client to specify an unusual unit to promote its savoury products, which are served with potato wedges. It therefore contacted fellow Scottish company Moffat, which created a square all over heated display unit divided into square display areas.
Aaroc Solutions MD Kevan Jack said: “The client was after something unique, bespoke and, of course, functional. The Moffat Squared Display Servery certainly fits the bill.”
John Wannan, sales and marketing manager at Moffat, commented: “As well as looking stunning, the produce must be kept in prime condition. We used a special heating system to ensure different product options stay at the correct temperature, without drying out or becoming soggy.”
The unit is divided into three main sections – in the centre is a potato wedge scuttle, while on either side are three shelf display areas, holding a selection of savoury products. Each of the unit’s three main sections has its own temperature and light controls.
The shelves, which are standard 1/1 gastronorm, have toughened glass thermo-panel insets with built-in elements. These should evenly distribute heat, eliminating hot spots, distortion and discoloration.
The unit has a 10mm-thick UV-bonded glass screen to top, sides and front. This is designed to protect the pies and emphasise the squareness of the design. Bright LED lights and polished stainless steel construction are featured in the design, while the rear of the unit has a worktop shelf to assist with service. The controls are housed in the base of the unit for easy access.
Despite offering six 1/1GN heated shelves plus the heated potato wedge scuttle, the whole unit runs off a 13A supply. It measures 1,200mm long by 950mm wide and 1,260mm high.
