New Jade Range
Tuesday 02 February 2010
Improved usability, superior performanceand value for money.
Williams is proudly launching a complete redesign of its most popular range of products - the new look range of Jade cabinets and counters.
Although the Jade has seen some changes since its introduction in 2000, these have mainly been enhancements to its components, ensuring continued and improved product performance. But this time around the Jade is getting a well earned makeover!
By listening to our customers, amongst whom can be found respected Foodservice Consultants (FCSI), Refrigeration dealers, Kitchen Houses and Chefs (Craft Guild of Chefs) we have made some significant improvements to the overall look and design of the Jade range.
A major change on the original design saw our development team incorporating an all new, full length, integral handle. Apart from providing cabinets with an overall more sophisticated and sleek look created by the flush design, (no screws / no bolts) the handle provides the user with a non-slip, improved 'grab' on the door, a must in a busy kitchen environment. The handle is formed from the same piece of stainless steel as the door itself, providing an easy-to-clean one piece surface, with no potential dirt traps.
The well loved Jade models have always featured Williams energy saving CoolSmart controllers as standard and will continue to do so, providing one of the markets leading energy saving solutions. Significantly, the CoolSmart controller features indicators for not only the fan, but for defrost, compressor and also probe failure, thereby rapidly alerting users to potential problems and ensuring that critical storage temperature is not compromised.
Designed for effective operation in high ambient 43°C environment, Jade units have tough stainless steel exteriors which have proven themselves to successfully withstand the rigours of day-to-day operation in a busy kitchen. Construction of the units purposely includes 75mm (low GWP and zero ODP) insulation for excellent thermal efficiency, a relatively unique feature when compared to other manufacturers' equipment.
To further help reduce running costs, all doors are self-closing and fitted with easy to clean, replaceable magnetic balloon gaskets. Couple this with energy efficient two and three drawer banks with the new Jade counter is amongst the most energy efficient counter available today. The complete Jade range is also available with hydrocarbon refrigerant - providing the ultimate 'green' solution.
The Jade is delivered to site with heavy duty, non-marking swivel castors with brakes for superior mobility and stability and has been perfectly designed to fit through a standard door for ease of positioning.
To make life easier Jade cabinets and counters are available in a choice of temperature ranges to suit specific catering requirements: +1/+4°C for general produce, -2/+2°C for fresh meat and -18°C for frozen food.
For flexibility, a variety of configurations can also be specified, including one and two-door upright cabinets to accommodate 1/1 and 2/1 gastronorm pans or one to four-door counters, suitable for 1/1 gastronorm containers. Adjustable, flexible racking and shelving is fitted as standard.
The top-mounted refrigeration system on Jade cabinets is removable for easy servicing and maintenance as is the refrigerated cassette system on counters, both of which can be replaced in minutes.
