Tips for Specifying Grab and Go

Content sponsored by: Structural Concepts

The shape of the under counter and upright grab and go models makes them ideal for integrating into counters and behind walls. These modular units are self-contained for easy plug and play installation, yet appear completely custom after being positioned under a counter or behind a wall. Planning the space where these models will be incorporated takes careful consideration of important equipment dimensions and ventilation requirements. Look for this information in manufacturers’ design guide resources and specifications sheets.

Key specifications to consider:

Under Counter grab and go models

  • Breeze-E Type II refrigeration systems accommodate the higher ambient conditions associated with the closer relationship to the kitchen area 
  • A black interior finish makes fresh food visually stand out
  • A black exterior finish is all that is needed, as the equipment is completely hidden by the counter
  • LED lights
  • Slide-out condensing units provide easy maintenance and service, and rear air intake for the condensing units provide front air discharge of the warm condensing unit air
  • Display risers assist in merchandising a variety of food items

  • A black exterior finish is all that is needed, as the equipment is completely hidden by the wall
  • Top mount condensing units provide ventilation in and out the top of the equipment, which eliminates the need for vents in the front wall and allows the equipment to look completely built in
  • Lighted shelves

Also, consider pull down night curtains to increase the operating efficiency of the display during non-business hours as well as a roll down security cover to secure the display.
