Commercial Walk In Cooler Gravity Feed & Wire Shelving, Racks
These systems are designed to be placed behind glass walk in cooler doors and gravity feed products down angled shelves. The products are always automatically front faced towards the shopper. This achieves a fully loaded and stocked look even if the display really isn't. The loaded appearance creates a positive reaction from shoppers who will more readily purchase from what appears to be a full display rack than one that looks half empty. Additionally, gravity flow walk in cooler shelves automatically rotate products in a FIFO process. This is because these systems are generally stocked from behind in the walk in cooler so that the items are shopped in the same order they were stocked onto the shelves. This practice reduces spoilage, customer reach-in accidents and reduces restocking labor significantly compared to any front stocking methodology.
Another benefit to these gravity flow shelves is that because the shelves are angled, shoppers need less room between the shelves to pull product out. This creates the opportunity to place the shelves closer together than flat shelves and increase cooler capacity. Gravity feed walk in cooler shelving is available in both roller and roller-less systems. Roller-less systems have no moving parts and therefore are easier to keep clean.
