Retail Refrigeration

Retail Refrigeration plays a very important roll in the modern retail sales environment. With less time available today for preparing meals more food producers are providing a wider range of refrigerated ready made meals and prepared foods.

Ensuring that these products are stored at the correct temperature, merchandised and presented correctly will provide higher throughput of product thus increasing your profitability. Refrigerated beers and wines are a must for all convenience stores, leading retailers in the convenience market report that up to 30% of the stores turnover can be generated by selling cold beers and wines in a open type multideck case.

At Oak we offer a large range of refrigerated retail cases to suit all types of requirements. Our case ranges run from depths of 700mm to 1100mm and heights from 1500mm to 2200mm. Various options are available which include:

  • Under shelve lighting and twin canopy lighting for better display of products
  • Adjustable shelves for angle display of products
  • EPOS – Ticket strip options
  • Colour options for canopies, lower panels, bumpers and internals
  • Interior mirrors for better product visibility
  • Various end wall options including glazed, profiled and mirrored
  • Reinforced shelf options for chilled drink cases
  • Night blinds for energy saving out of trading hours

In addition to the retail atheistic layout of the cases at Oak we carry out detailed designs of the refrigeration machinery and service layouts to ensure that the cabinets operate efficiently and at their design set points throughout the complete yearly cycle.

The external condensing units selected by Oak are always at the forefront of technology which utilise new generation high efficiency refrigerants. Most of the high temperature machinery selected by our engineers offer Copeland Scroll compressors from their ZB range which are the new high efficiency models. Our machinery packages are generally low noise solutions which provide typical noise levels at or below 42 dba at 10m.

Our installations are always installed to the highest standards. We ensure all of our services (pipe work and cables) are correctly supported, jointed and selected and most importantly all of our staff are trained to commission each system and fine tune the system prior to leaving your site to ensure it is operating to its full design.

Post completion at Oak we provide basic training to end users on the operation of their new equipment, we also provide details on aspects of maintenance that should be covered by the owner. After service and maintenance contracts are also offered on all cases and machinery provided by Oak Refrigeration.
