Every minute of every day, the packaged ice industry meets the needs of an increasingly demanding market, and over 60 years, one company has provided the innovations needed to fuel customer's success. That company is Leer. Since its founding in 1952, Leer has pioneered every important new technology in the ice merchandiser category. Through continuous innovations, Leer ice merchandisers are reliable, durable, and the most energy efficient ice merchandisers available today. Over the years, our innovations have given Leer's customers the best outdoor merchandiser door in the industry. Let's review some of the key technologies that went into making the Leer doors what they are today. PVC framed doors. Building PVC framed doors gave Leer a door that was much stronger than others in the industry, leading to increased durability. Door gaskets. We increased the gasket functionality, allowing a better seal resulting in overall better efficiency. We were able to change the PVC frame bonding process so that the interior metal was inserted from the outside. By removing foam adhesion from the equation, we were able to offer our customers the tested and proven strongest doors in the industry. These advancements have proven to be vital in increasing the internal strength and stability of the door. Through a series of controlled environment tests, the new Leer door has proven to be the strongest merchandiser door on the market. In this pull test, the new Leer door showed a significant increase in strength. Today, Leer is implementing another upgrade to all outdoor ice merchandiser doors. Effective 2013, all exterior doors will have a material upgrade to increase durability. This material change provides a highly-robust finish that is extra scratch, stain, and mar resistant. The overall advancement presents an increase in the metal thickness, creating a stronger product. Also included in the new coating is IR reflective pigmentation, creating a cooler surface. The material has many successful applications including steel roofs and was engineered specifically for outdoor use, and the new floor of carbon coating showed impressive results to harsh chemical testing. The new material process now addresses an improvement for the outside, completing a highly-engineered door that achieves the longevity that Leer and their customers expect from the respected brand in the business. Delivering better products through innovation, Leer.
