All units boast 1 or 2 stainless steel doors that slide open for easy access and lock closed for security. Each froster houses multiple epoxy-coated shelves, which are easy to load from the bottom up. Simply load the bottom shelf, place the second shelf on top, and then continue the process until the unit is full. To retrieve dishes, start from the top and work your way down. Avoid placing dishes on the floor of the unit. To maintain temperatures between -5 and 2 degrees Fahrenheit, each glass froster uses eco-friendly R290 refrigerant. Using a 1/4 or 1/3 hp compressor, these units are all bottom-mounted and built with an automatic defrost system for easy operation.

With a powerful 1/3 hp compressor and a -5 to 2 degree Fahrenheit temperature range, this glass froster is the perfect way to cool your salad plates before service or put a delicate layer of frost on your craft beer glasses. While this unit is not for storing food or beverages, it is great for preparing the dishes or glasses you will use to serve guests. Also, it does not need to be running continuously so your staff can turn it off after hours to save electricity!

The 12.2 cu. ft. of interior space can hold plenty of salad plates or beer mugs. The Avantco GF50-HC glass froster's compressor uses eco-friendly R290 refrigerant. This specialized refrigerant has an ozone depletion potential (ODP) of 0 and a global warming potential (GWP) of 3, making it an environmentally-responsible choice for your business. To simplify maintenance, this unit is equipped with an automatic defrost system.

It comes with 8 epoxy-coated steel shelves inside to make it easy to keep your plates or glasses organized. Polyurethane insulation helps to maintain the interior temperatures by minimizing temperature transfer while the sliding stainless steel doors allow easy access when it's time to plate up your food or draw another glass of beer.
