Counter refrigeration increases workspace
Counter refrigeration is a popular option in commercial kitchens, combining large capacity storage with a practical prep surface.
True increases standard warranty on refrigeration to further emphasise equipment quality and value.
From March 1st, True commercial refrigerators and freezers sold in the United Kingdom and Ireland will receive a full five-year parts & labour warranty as standard, compressor included.
“Reliability, quality and longevity have always been characteristics of True equipment” says John Lilly of True. “Kitchen operators have to rely on their refrigeration to work properly and consistently, so by offering an additional 2 years on our already great warranty, we hope to further reinforce the message that when you buy a True product, you know that it will do the job and that it is built to last.”

In fact, energy saving wasn’t the main reason for buying the True glass merchandisers. The independent wine and spirit merchant, in Penicuik near Edinburgh, had been looking for cabinets that were built to last. “The old units kept breaking down. Self-service merchandisers need to be tough and the quality of build, with their extended warranty, made True the obvious choice,” says David Seez.

Recently the Glasgow Warriors Rugby Union club moved from its old ground at Firhill Stadium to the bigger Scotstoun Stadium, located at the west end of Glasgow. The Scotstoun Stadium first opened its doors to the public in 1915 and is set to be a training venue for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014.
The bar at Scotstoun has been refurbished, not only to cope with the anticipated increased trade, but also to offer improved facilities as a corporate event venue for conferences and other business meetings. Unusually, the bar itself is 8m long, which can cause problems during serving, so to add flexibility in design Quality Equipment Distributers (QED) installed a True TDD-2 direct draw beer dispenser part way along its length.

Peter Kelly is well known in the Widnes area for his three successful venues – The Beat Bar, The Corner House Sports Bar and The Ring O’ Bells Public House.
“The key to running three establishments is that I need to have the best equipment in place,” says Peter Kelly. “It needs to be reliable. In terms of refrigeration, I don’t want to be worrying about whether my bottle coolers are cold or if my fridges are holding at the correct temperature, I just want them to work so I can get on with day to day managing the businesses.” (more…)
