WHY SHOULD I BUY THE EP1/3H (12-175)?
This versatile stainless steel built appliance offers chilled storage space together with a top surface countertop that doubles as a prep workstation. The EcoPro G2 EP1/3H is a stylish yet rugged space saving solution for storing and prepping food-to-go like tasty street foods, wraps, salads, pizza and sandwiches. Ideal for busy fast food outlets, takeaways and cafés, the large fridge capacity of 435 litres and worktop space of 1865 mm x 700 mm also make it useful for larger premises including canteens, hotels, schools and institutions. Food ingredients are always readily accessible and available at the optimum chill temperature.
Manufactured in the UK by Foster this technologically advanced and strongly built appliance – utilising 304 grade stainless steel and an aluminium interior – offers highly efficient refrigeration technology, quality insulation and good temperature recovery after door opening and closing – in popular catering outlets this can occur dozens of times a day so it’s always an important consideration.
This unit is GN 1/1 compatible so it’s easy to transfer ingredients and prepared meals or dishes from one appliance to another, for example to a bain marie or an oven.
The EP1/3H is a 3 door refrigerated prep counter with a total internal volume of 435 litres. The dimensions of the appliance are 865 mm (h) x 1865 mm (w) x 700 mm (d) – the depth is 1113 mm when the doors are fully open. The net weight is 145 kilos with a gross packed weight for delivery of 165.87 kilos. 80 mm castors are fitted as standard, with height adjustable legs available as an option in 100 mm or 150 mm sizes. The unit requires a standard plug socket to run, and a 13 amp plug is fitted at the factory. It’s important that adequate airflow is maintained around the counter, with airspace of 150 mm; this allows the unit to function efficiently. So when you are measuring up, please ensure you take this into consideration.
The operating temperature range is +1°C to +4°C and the unit will function efficiently in ambient temperatures up to 40°C. The unit operates quietly with a decibel rating of 67.2 Dba at 1 metre. Similar to that of a smartphone, the control panel is touch sensitive and hidden until lit. A fully floating lock provides security and prevents the lock breaking if the key is left in.
Foster is an innovative leader in refrigeration technology and this product, which is ECA Scheme approved, is no exception. Energy efficiency means saving on energy costs – a key overhead in commercial kitchens – and a greener environment. The advanced Airlines ventilation system reduces compressor running times by 15%, and an energy saving hydrocarbon refrigerant (R290) is available as standard at no extra cost. There are optimum levels of insulation of 60 mm throughout the unit.
6 shelves are supplied as standard with GN 1/1 shelves and extra nylon coated shelves available. Stainless steel interiors are available as options. The concealed refrigeration system is located to the left, optimising capacity and providing an attractive yet practical exterior to the unit.
