Catering equipment manufacturer Project Distribution (Prodis) has re-designed and re-launched its full range of professional refrigerated storage cabinets in response to the Ecodesign energy efficiency directive standards which came into force on 1 July.

It is now a legal requirement to display commercial refrigerator energy efficiency information in any marketing and sales literature including printed material and websites.

Therefore, Prodis believes it has made its cabinets more energy efficient with no increase in cost.

The new HC Series of storage refrigeration replaces the HR series, while the GRN Series of refrigerated service counters and upright cabinets replace the GN series and the EC Series of refrigerated counters replaces the Compact series.

The HC Series is claimed to offer up to 47% energy saving over its predecessors on some models.

It is available in three sizes in either a white or stainless steel finish and is available as either a fridge or a freezer.

Reversible doors should allow the cabinets to be fitted into tight corners or for two cabinets to be fitted side by side and both handles to be placed centrally.

The GRN Series is said to be up to 46% more energy efficient than some models in its predecessor series.

The upright cabinets are available with single or double doors as either a fridge or a freezer, while the counters in the range are available in two sizes as either a flat top cabinet or fitted with a 100mm upstand, again as either a fridge or a freezer.

The EC Series also offers up to a 46% energy saving on some models.

All of these Prodis cabinets are fitted with an externally mounted digital temperature controller to ensure a consistent temperature and easy monitoring.
