Lowering the Bill – Night Curtains and Energy Saving Econofrost Helps Grocers Keep Cool Heads and a Lid on Operating Costs

Monday, June 20th, 2011

For grocery stores of all sizes, maintaining adequate food sustainability is more imperative than ever. Large-scale retailers and independent grocers alike must strive for enhanced cost-efficiency on all fronts. Every commercial food vendor knows that excessive energy consumption and overhead are the primary profit eroders. In the perishable food industry, conservation of energy and inventory is imperative to gain a competitive edge.

 Once again, Econofrost is on the scene to help save the day and dollars for food vendors.

 A Closer Look at Econofrost Night Curtains

 Econofrost retrofit thermal covers give grocers the best thermal barrier and industrial-quality refrigeration in existence. The main keys to greater profitability are cooler product and case interiors, and product temperature stability. In addition, deflecting ambient heat and radiation from refrigerator casing prolongs the shelf life, integrity, and consumer eye appeal of perishable food items.

 Night covers are ideal for the drastic reduction of utility and product wastage overhead costs. There are many sizes, designs, and models available on today’s marketplace. Econofrost offers the best energy solutions to suit every need.

Benefits of Econofrost Refrigeration Blinds:

       –     Substantial Energy Savings

 The company’s exclusive closed design retains cold air within the interior of food display cases.

–    Unique Construction

 Econofrost night covers are constructed from a special perforated aluminum weave for ideal temperature regulation. This means that mechanical components do not have to work as hard to maintain temperature consistency.

 Thus, the serviceable life of commercial refrigeration equipment is lengthened considerably. This Econofrost advantage results in reduced discard rates from premature discoloration, spoilage, and shrinkage of edible products.

       –     Wide selection of product specifications

       Econofrost night curtains are available in three standardized widths of four, six, and eight feet. Econofrost also offers retailers and OEM’s (original equipment manufacturers) custom night cover products and sizes.  Attached fabric backing covers a vertical opening of to 76 inches long.

       –     Superior Parts Protection

       All metallic brakes, spring assemblies, and internal implements are constructed to remain free of corrosion and rust for the unit’s entire useful life.

       –     Energy Efficient Exterior Design

The open cassette design of all Econofrost coolers inhibits condensation accumulation by increasing the unit’s internal breathing. Thus, harmful mildew, mold and bacteria growth is prevented without the use of toxic sprays or anti-microbial treatments.

       –     Reinforced Taped Edges

       This feature prolongs usable lifespan and enhances functionality of woven aluminum fabric that is specially engineered to withstand thousands of retractions throughout its lifetime.

       –     Get a Better Grip

       Night cover handles are designed in a slender clip-on style which facilitates ultra-secure fastening of the cover to the refrigeration case bumper. Patented engineering also ensures they are easier to use and provide greater durability.

Night Covers for Refrigerated Cases will Save Money, Energy and Lower Operating Costs

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Did you know that stores can save money and energy by using night covers on commercial refrigerated cases during stores closed hours, and the effect on the environment is considerable.

If your grocery store, convenience store or supermarket is trying to become more energy efficient or you are considering alternatives that will save money and have an eco-friendly impact on the environment, then using energy saving night covers on commercial refrigeration equipment is definitely one way to accomplish this goal. Thermal night blinds are a wise and cost-effective option. They will be an important component of your energy management system.

There are many reasons to use night covers in refrigerated cases and the list below shows just a few of these.

• Night covers conserve energy
• Thermal night blinds blocks heat and light
• Night covers help maintain cooler temperatures
• A stable temperature helps meet food safety requirements
• Thermal night blinds help keep perishables fresh
• Night covers increase shelf life
• Night blinds help a refrigeration system operates more efficiently
• Night covers lessen energy consumption
• Night covers decrease maintenance costs
• Night blinds help food retailers reduce overhead and save money
• Thermal night blinds help sustain the integrity of merchandise
• Night blinds protect products in case of a power failure

Critical to the survival of a retail food business are food safety and sustainability. Installing night covers on your open grocery display cases helps to keep food safe and fresh because the temperature is kept balanced. As the cold air continues to circulate in the refrigerated cases and warm air and light is deflected away, this protects perishable products. This results in less energy being required to sustain the temperature during the night. Grocery outlets are able to decrease their impact on the environment by decreasing energy consumption and electricity and will save money on their electric bills. When you consider buying night covers, look at what’s available for retrofit models.

One of the most effective thermal barriers are night blinds that employ woven aluminum in their design. Night blinds are usually installed on open refrigerator display cases, by supplying a thermal barrier that protects refrigerated foods from heat and light. These covers are pulled down at night, like blinds, trapping cold air inside the case, and pulled up before the store opens in the morning. More and more grocery stores, supermarkets, and convenience stores have started using night covers in their efforts to reduce costs.
