Aerofoils help Multideck merchandiser energy efficiency fly

Williams’ latest Multidecks cut energy use by up to 15%

Williams has upgraded its range of Gem Multideck grab & go merchandisers by developing special aerofoils that dramatically improve energy efficiency.

The aerofoils are mounted along the front of the unit’s shelves and double as ticket strips.  They are carefully angled to trap cold air as it flows around the Multideck, redirecting it onto the shelf below.  This redirecting of the cold air saves energy as the unit’s refrigeration doesn’t have to work so hard to maintain temperature.  It also improves the customer experience as it reduces ‘cold aisle syndrome’, with most of the cold air staying inside the display, instead of spilling out of the front.  This is especially important where runs of Multidecks are grouped together.  (more…)
