Where Can You Expect to See the Greatest Savings?

While for the majority of retailers, the most noticeable payback is attributed to both energy and shrink and discard savings, it is the “true” cost of ownership that separates each night cover product.

When evaluating a night curtain for refrigeration cases, the extension of product shelf life can be quite significant for many departments (especially produce and meat dept.’s) but it should not the be the limiting factor in selecting a night cover product. Payback periods are derived from a combination of energy savings, the reduction in damage to organic and perishable foods aswell as the reduced labour time dedicated to trimming and maintaining displays.

However, there are other costs associated with slecting a night cover product. What are your options when it comes to using night covers to cover a length of space? Are you constricted to just 4ft or 6ft units? Or are 8ft units available?

With 8ft units you can cover a greater expanse of case with less units, which in turn reduces the number of gaps between each unit and also reduces future servicing and maintenance requirements.
