Carrier Launches Velando® Compact Space Freezer: An Advanced Solution for Small Store Layouts
COLOGNE, Germany -
Carrier Commercial Refrigeration Europe has launched a new freezer that offers retailers a combination of modern design, modularity and best-in-class energy efficiency. The Velando® Compact Space (CS) freezer is the ideal solution for supermarkets and convenience stores seeking increased floor space and consistent store layout. Carrier, the world’s leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
Small stores that have limited space require flexible and efficient refrigeration equipment. With a depth of 770 millimeters, the Velando CS freezer provides increased floor space productivity through its compact design, along with additional features for retailers seeking to maximize the use of their store’s space.
The Velando CS freezer’s large glass surface and optional panorama sidewalls allow for increased product visibility and enhanced presentation and, without the sidewalls, the unit is multiplexible. Through the Velando CS freezer’s uninterrupted installation solution, freezers in the Velando range can be seamlessly connected for a cohesive look. Available in both plug-in and remote configurations, the unit features a harmonized design with plug-in and remote multidecks for a consistent store layout.
The Velando CS remote freezer works with Carrier’s pioneering CO2OLtec® system, using natural refrigerant carbon dioxide (CO2), with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of one, while the plug-in freezer uses the low-GWP R-290 refrigerant, both compliant with the new EU F-gas Regulation.
Both models come equipped with energy-saving fans, electronic temperature control, optional LED lighting and non-heated doors for maximum efficiency.
“Small stores that require a higher degree of flexibility in their freezer solutions will find everything they’re looking for in the Velando Compact Space freezer —increased floor space productivity, energy efficiency and better product display,” said Stefan Hemschemeier, director, Small Store Program, Carrier Commercial Refrigeration Europe.
The Velando CS freezer follows the latest Carrier Small Store refrigeration concept, a program that offers solutions for the specific conditions and requirements of small-store formats. The chillers and freezer display cabinets in the small-store program cater to the optimal presentation of food in limited retail space, while maintaining a cohesive design.
