Non-Refrigerated and Refrigerated Display Cases

Posted by Jono

Display cases are a supermarket’s bread-and-butter commercial refrigeration solutions. These are the spaces where foodstuffs of all varieties are displayed for customers to peruse. Some foods, like cold meats, require refrigerated display cases, while others, like pastries, require room temperature storage solutions. Just Fridge takes a brief look at the two types of supermarket display cases available – as well as where to get supermarket refrigeration units in South Africa.

Non-refrigerated, or ‘ambient’ display cases are supermarket presentation solutions used for the display of foods that require no refrigeration to keep them fresh. Examples of foods displayed in ambient display cases include baked goods, pastries and confectionaries. Non-refrigerated display cases, on average, are lighter than their refrigerated cousins – because of their lack of internal refrigeration components.

Refrigerated Display Cases

Refrigerated display cases, on the other hand, are used to display food stuffs that require temperature control to retain freshness. These units look exactly like their ambient versions, which means they can be placed side by side and still retain uniformity. Temperatures range from 6° to 10° Celsius, and can be set via onboard digital thermostat. Some refrigerated display cases feature both front and rear sliding glass panels, which makes cleaning them a breeze.
