EveryFridge: Williams unveils the Jade solution at LACA 2021
Huge choice of model styles makes Jade the most versatile refrigeration option PLUS: new range of energy efficient chilled Multideck merchandisers.
If you’re looking for a range of refrigeration that comes in a choice of formats, shapes and sizes that can fit every application, then Jade is the ‘EveryFridge’ answer. Williams will be focusing on the Jade series at the LACA Conference. The company will also be showing the R100-SCS chilled merchandiser, part of its range of Multidecks.
The huge variety of different requirements that educational establishments have makes Jade the ideal refrigeration choice. It’s available in upright cabinets, counters and undercounters, for both chilled and frozen storage, and there are Jade blast chillers and freezers, too.
But that’s just the start.
For example, suppose you have a kitchen with a low ceiling and restricted space. A standard upright cabinet won’t fit. What’s more, that low ceiling could give you ventilation problems if the refrigeration system is mounted on top of the cabinet. The answer is the Jade 300U. This ultra-slim cabinet has a compact footprint, can squeeze in to the tightest space and has the refrigeration system mounted at the bottom. Despite its compact size, it has a 335.5litre capacity. At the other end of the Jade cabinet range is the J2 – a two door cabinet with the capacity to hold 1295litres.
Similarly, the Jade counter models are available in a dazzling choice of models, formats and widths. No room for a standard counter? The Jade Slimline range is only 500mm deep, so it can fit the tightest galley-style kitchen.
For more information, talk to the Williams refrigeration experts on stand M34.
