Williams Refrigeration: the practical cool for school
Stand M26, the LACA Main Event, Hilton Birmingham Metropole, 10-12 July 2019
At the LACA Main Event Williams will focus on ‘refrigeration for the real world’: while energy efficiency is important, so is functionality. Which is why a Williams fridge reliably maintains food at the right temperature, is easy to live with and is very, very tough.
The latest school products from Williams totally reflect this practical, ‘real world refrigeration’ ethos. Take the new Chefs Drawers. These individual refrigerated drawers are compact, low-level units that can fit into tight areas, making the most use of available space. They can be stacked and can even have cooking appliances sited on top of them.
For schools on a budget, Williams has developed several cabinets that provide professional, low-cost refrigeration. For example, the Amber range of undercounter and upright cabinets combines robust construction, a slimline design and a budget price. The Amber-A400 upright cabinet, which is available as either a fridge or freezer, has a footprint of just 695 x 684mm yet offers 410 litres capacity. Meanwhile the undercounter Amber-135 is just 606mm wide by 577mm deep by 805mm high, with a capacity of 135 litres.
Rightly, sustainability is on most schools’ refrigeration specification wish-list. Wherever possible, Williams uses naturally occurring refrigerant gases, such as hydrocarbon R290. These are highly efficient and have almost no negative impact on the environment. What’s more, their thermodynamic properties are so superior that they reduce energy consumption compared to standard refrigerants.
Specifying equipment that’s easy to operate and look after is another key criteria for many schools. Williams ensures that this is applied across all its products; for example, shelving and racking is easy to remove for cleaning. Then there are blast chillers – they can be complicated, but the Williams ‘1, 2, 3’ control panel is a simple to operate system using three easy steps to initiate the blast-chill cycle.
Alongside its back of house storage refrigeration for schools, Williams offers a range of attractive front of house merchandisers – making it a one stop shop for school refrigeration. Williams school specialists will be on hand throughout The Main Event to discuss the latest refrigeration ideas for the education sector.
