The design allows the product to be completely aesthetically integrated into the final unit.
The color of the faceplate can be changed with custom material graphics according to the merchandiser’s brand.
ij allows to preserve the cold chain, minimizing food waste, while it features many energy saving algorithms to reduce the environmental impact of refrigeration units.
