Reduce your Supermarket Energy Costs

Energy Savings can be as high as 36% to 50% per hour used

Econofrost woven aluminum night covers conserve electrical energy on open refrigerated display and freezer cases. Independent third-party testing has found that refrigeration blinds can save up to 36% of the energy consumed by your case for every hour they are used, and refrigerated products remain at lower temperatures for up to 15 hours after the night shields are opened. Reductions on compressor power and refrigeration load are also realized when Econofrost night covers are used.

Extend Freshness and Reduce Shrink

Keep Your Supermarket’s Perishables at Their Best with Our Thermal Shielding Solution

When your supermarket is closed, our innovative covers trap cold air inside the display case while reflecting ambient heat and radiation back into the store, ensuring a more temperature-stable environment and longer product shelf life. By maintaining constant product temperatures near the discharge air temperature, our refrigeration screens safeguard against spoilage, reducing shrink, and minimizing product discard, leading to significant savings and heightened efficiency for your grocery store.

Protect Your Perishables During Power Outages

Ensure Reliable Refrigeration and Significant Savings with Our Hygienic Thermal Barrier Shields

During power outages, Econofrost night covers act as a shield, preventing warm air from entering your refrigerated cases and maintaining temperatures for 3-6 hours. The best part? The savings from protecting your perishables during a single power outage can more than pay for your entire night shade installation!

Fresh Food Display Case Covers for Grocery Stores

Boost Savings and Preserve Freshness

Refrigeration night blinds are the ultimate solution for safeguarding fresh fruits and vegetables in produce departments of supermarkets. As glass doors are not feasible for these cases, night covers provide an ideal approach to preserving perishables and minimizing waste. With potential savings of up to $1 per foot per day and reduced labor costs, many produce managers have already experienced the benefits of Econofrost night covers. Elevate the freshness and efficiency of your grocery store by implementing our trusted thermal shielding solution.

Reliability

Long-term satisfied customers are the true testament to product reliability. Raley’s Supermarkets installed Econofrost in 120 stores in 2001 and have since saved over $2,000,000 in energy costs. Their continued trouble-free nightly savings speak volumes about the effectiveness of our product.

Proven Durability

For over 30 years, Econofrost Night Covers have been installed in more locations than any other brand. Solid steel spring-core and rod are more durable and function trouble-free even after thousands of retractions.

Chemical & Pesticide Free

Econofrost is engineered specifically for the supermarket environment and needs only air flow to dry its fabric after each retraction. Econofrost design prevents mold, mildew and bacterial growth.

Econofrost Customer Testimonials

Brookshire Brothers

Yes we like these a lot, you’re a popular guy.” He showed me the frozen pizza end cap and noticed how firm the pizza is, he said before the Econofrost covers were installed the some pizzas would become soft and he would lose some product.

Assistant Manager, Brookshire Brothers

“We installed Econofrost night covers throughout our entire store and in addition to the excellent energy savings, we are also saving anywhere from $200-$300 per month in our produce department in reduced shrink, trim and discard.

And that’s not even counting the money we save from re-directing the labor we were previously using to re-merchandise the produce cases each morning.”

Tom, Store Manager, 3-Store Chain in Upstate Michigan
Supermercados Grande

Supermercados Grande installed Econofrost night covers in their store and with monthly savings of close to $3,000 the results led them to install night covers in the remaining 29 stores for expected savings of over $1 million dollars annually and a payback time of 7 months!

“The produce/cheese case pull down shades have saved me $400 -$500 on electricity alone for each and every month since installation.”

George Civiletto, Owner Tuscany Fresh Meats and Deli, Fredonia, NY
Anconas

By adding night shades to all the open-faced refrigerators in the store, Ancona’s Market was able to cut electric consumption by 20%.

“Given that our electric bill is about $18,000 a month, that’s a good savings,” he said. “For our meat case, with the night shade, the refrigeration is better, which increases the shelf life of our meats.”

Joe Ancona, Owner, Ancona's Market
Ruddy Potato

“We wanted to provide the best possible customer service by keeping the coolers open during the day to provide easy access, yet reduce our energy waste at night. The insulated blinds keep the cold air in. As an added bonus, they improve product life by keeping the temperatures more consistent.”

Daniel Head, Owner of Ruddy Potato
Marandinos

The grocery store has many open refrigerated cases (without doors). The easy access to the food is convenient for customers, but hard on the budget. The cool air in and around the coolers competes with the ambient air in the aisles.

48 energy-efficient night covers were installed over the open cases. These lightweight, easy-to-operate pull-down metal shades are an elegant solution. Now, when the store is closed, the cool air is contained. In the winter, when the building is being heated, this is especially helpful. Total lifetime savings from energy-efficient cooler night covers: 651,400 kilowatt-hours.

Marandinos
Rabban

Rabban’s Save-A-Lot added 84 feet of vertical night covers to its coolers, saving an estimated $1,100 annually in electricity costs. Rabban is pleased with his decision to participate in the program: “I love the idea of saving money while I am doing what is environmentally right. I also really like the feel of the store!

He isn’t alone. According to Rabban, “Both our customers and employees are very positive about the store’s comfort and product freshness.”

Rabban, Save-A-Lot
Holiday Quality Foods Logo

Monthly PG & E bill is down $1,500 – $2,000 per month. Produce trim and trim time is down significantly. Produce looks much fresher in the morning when the covers are lifted. Meat re-wraps/package weeping is down. Meat does not tan.

The store went through a nine and a half hour power failure and zero merchandises was lost.”

Chuck Robinson, Manager of HQF
raley's

“Installing Econofrost has saved us $3,500 per year per store!”

Energy Manager, Raley’s
bashas

Bashas’ chose a store with high traffic counts to evaluate the durability and impact of the night shades.

It was obvious from the pilot that the night covers were a solid energy-saving solution for our stores,” said Rick Hamm, VP Construction. The original plan was to install the night covers in half of the stores that Bashas’ operates. When we saw the results, we decided to expand the night shades to as many stores as possible,” said Hamm.

Rick Hamm, VP Construction

Produce Department reports, “produce is benefiting from the covers with extended shelf life & a lot less trim on leafy greens, also noted that bean sprouts are keeping to the next day & that did not happen before the covers were installed…

Deli Manager likes the covers and noted that the packaged salads keep their freshness and color longer. Also said the packaged beans don’t have the lids puffing up like they did before Econofrost were installed.

George, Deli Manager
