Laura Hariani, Metro brand manager at Jestic Foodservice Solutions believes that kitchen shelving and storage needs to be recognised in overall efficiency considerations for operations:
Efficient space utilisation is essential in foodservice environments, especially back of house where space is nearly always in short supply. Storage solutions should be tailored to suit each operators’ processes and premises, so it is safe and easy for kitchen staff to access what they need, when they need it.
Commercial kitchen storage and shelving solutions should also be carefully considered to optimise the available floor and wall space, built to withstand the rigours of a busy commercial kitchen, whilst also being easy to clean in order maintain hygiene standards.
Choosing the right equipment for this important and often overlooked job is critical and at Jestic we are delighted to offer the market-leading range of commercial shelving systems from Metro – creators of the original post-based shelving system unit in 1965 and still recognised around the world as leading the industry in stability, efficiency and mobility.
We work closely with operators, dealers and consultants to ensure shelving and storage is tailored for each site – and with Metro’s extensive ranges of stationary, mobile, overhead and floor track configurations there is a shelving solution for every application. Constructed from superior materials and incorporating innovative design Metro’s shelving systems are built to last, have proven stability and are easy to adjust. In addition, Microban antimicrobial product protection is incorporated into Metro’s epoxy coated wire systems and removable polymer shelf mats, helping to keep shelves ‘cleaner between cleanings’.
As well as traditional shelving systems, Metro also has a wide range of other innovative storage solutions including the SmartLever Productivity System, Smartwall and Prepmate.
