FEM has announced that it has begun supplying Vollrath’s Gastronorm Pan Bands range in the UK, and says it will help operators limit drips and spills from pans.

The Vollrath Gastronorm Pan Bands are patented high temperature silicone bands, said to be oven safe up to 232°C and, according to FEM, easy to apply.

Designed to secure covers, cling film or aluminium foil to gastronorm pans, the Pan Bands are aimed at reducing spills during storage and transportation.

FEM offer the pan bands in a range of sizes to fit 1/1, 1/2, 1/3 and 1/6 GN pans.

The Pan Bands are supplied with a 1-year warranty, with list prices starting from £11.40 (ex VAT) for the Band compatible with 1/6 GN pans.

The launch expands on Vollrath’s range and comes after it recently unveiled its Mirage induction buffet warmer earlier this year.

The Mirage can have up to three units which can be connected together to provide a bank of buffet warmers. The warmers have four power levels – low, medium, high and chafer preheat – which are selected using touch controls.
