In May 2008, we introduced a small £10 per order delivery charge for cabinets, partly in response to the rapid increases in fuel prices at that time. Since then, other transport costs have also continued to rise and, although we have held the delivery charge at the same level for the last ten years, we must now make a small increase. From June 1st 2018, the standard cabinet delivery charge will be £15 nett which, incidentally, brings it in line with our standard spare parts delivery charge. The surcharge for deliveries within the London Congestion Charge Zone will remain unchanged.
Don't forget, our Retail Price List was updated on April 1st - please make sure you are using the latest price list when quoting for equipment.

We were very pleased to show off a wide selection from our eColdN range at Hotelympia this year. These are our most energy efficient cabinets yet, including A+ and A rated cabinets, and are ideal for cafés, coffee shops and retail eating areas - anywhere in fact where space is limited but you don't want to compromise on quality. More details are available on the Undercounter Catering Chillers page.
At last year's Bar and Pub Show we launched something a bit different. The CC1 is our modern alternative to an ice bucket. Click on the picture for more details.
The CC1 is the perfect way to keep wine or champagne chilled at your table. Using no ice means that the bottle stays dry - no more messy drips - and it works for hours. Two types of eutectic cold packs are available, one for normal wine temperature and one for sub-zero spirits.
Also new are the BD4 display cabinets, the open top OTD1 and the CW1, a new cup warmer.
There are three versions of the BD4 countertop bottle display cabinet. The BD4C runs at +1 to +5oC for normal display of wine or champagne, ideal for showing off premium or promotional products. The BD4S runs at -2 to -5oC which chills wine or champagne to just above it's freezing point, changing it's character completely. Perfectly refreshing (and went down very well at the show!). Lastly, the BD4F is a freezer designed to display vodka or gin at -10 to -15oC, ideal for trendy bars and nightclubs.
The OTD1 is a small open display, ideal for displaying new or premium products in a highly visible position.
The CW1 is a first for us - it's not a fridge! We have designed the CW1 to complement our milk chillers when used in conjunction with professional coffee machines. It will pre-warm three shelves of coffee cups so that busy sites can always serve a perfect cup of tea or coffee.
Details for all these models are on our Countertop Products page.

|Changes to Product Finishes|
Over the past few years, our product range has expanded considerably, particularly the undercounter cabinets. To suit a 900mm wide gap for example, there are currently two heights, two depths and a choice of hinged or sliding doors. That is six basic varieties, even before other options such as finish (painted or stainless steel), solid doors or stainless steel door frames are included. It has become simply impractical to keep a useful level of stock for all these versions. To rationalise the range, and allow us to keep good stock of the most popular varieties, we have now dropped the brown painted as a stock finish. It will still be available to special order but minimum quantities will apply and there will be a lead time of 6-8 weeks. Black, silver and stainless steel finishes will remain as presently.
