T4’s The Commission commissions Williams and Falcon

Heathrow’s new casual dining restaurant needs fast, compact, energy-efficient catering equipment;

Airedale Group’s airside kitchen for Delaware North hits the mark, straight off the bat

Falcon equipment in use at T4's The Commision HeathrowThe Commission is a new 175-seater casual dining and cocktail bar concept created exclusively for Heathrow’s Terminal 4.  A Drake & Morgan site, it’s operated by hospitality and foodservice company Delaware North and is open 16 hours a day, from breakfast to late night dinner and snacks.  Since it’s ‘airside’, there are lots of restrictions – for example, getting service engineers in for breakdowns takes time.  Meanwhile, it’s a high-pressure site with a constant stream of customers who often want to be served quickly.  All of which means the catering equipment has to be reliable, efficient and capable of delivering a high performance, which is why The Commission has Williams refrigeration and Falcon cooking appliances.

The kitchen project was managed by the Airedale Group.  The airside restrictions were further complicated by build hold ups resulting in Airedale’s window for installing the kitchen being cut from ten days to just three.  (more…)

The Rise of the Grill

Falcon’s F900 Rise and Fall Grill combines great performance and efficiency

Rise and fall grillFalcon’s latest product offering is the F900 Rise and Fall Grill (model E600).  Part of Falcon’s new F900 Series, it combines functionality with built-in energy and cost savings.

The F900 Rise and Fall Grill is very energy efficient as it uses automatic plate sensing technology to only activate the heat source when the tray is placed into the unit, just like induction. The grill’s powerful infrared elements ensure instant heat-up and precise temperature control, which also saves energy, as well as time. Even cooking is achieved with the middle of three elements turning off for 8 seconds after 25 seconds of all three being on full power. This delivers a consistent heat across the entire tray as well as adding to the overall energy efficiency. (more…)
