MEC2, the company behind German brand livecookintable, has adapted its product offerings as a response to the increasing Covid-safe requirements in foodservice by launching its ‘Be Safe!’ range.
The company developed new products as well as adding to its existing product range.
MEC2 worked in collaboration with a worldwide hotel group to develop a range of customisable sanitiser stations that include a mirror, drip tray, sanitiser holder, drawers and bin box. Being on castors, they can also be moved from one room to another when required. These stations are covered with an antibacterial laminate veneer for increased hygiene.
Working in combination with livecookintable cooking furniture, MEC2 launched a newly-designed ice well to present food on crushed ice to guests. It includes accessories such as glass display cases allowing customers to see the food available but designed to let the staff hand over the food in a safe manner.
Alternatively, a protective sneeze glass – or buffet guard – against droplet spread can be attached for self-service operations.
The livecookintable system features an airwall that cleans the air coming from its cooking devices from odours, as well as being designed to help clean microbiological load, so that bacteria and viruses have no chance of survival in the ozone-enriched plasma of the airwall.
As part of the Be Safe! Range, MEC2 also developed specifically antibacterial materials for its tabletops, shelves and blinds. The brand uses a specific stainless steel such as 1.4301/AISI 304, said to be ‘antibacterial’, and is commonly used in hospitals, labs and commercial kitchens.
