Lakewood, N.J. – July 13, 2010 – Architects, specifiers, designers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the foodservice industry now have a choice for quality refrigeration hardware with Keil® Refrigeration Hardware, a new brand of Component Hardware Group. The new product innovations offered by Keil address pertinent customer needs—easier installation procedures, increased energy efficiencies and decreased operational costs for commercial foodservice refrigeration units.
Keil’s leading technological advancements are unlike anything previously available to the foodservice, commercial, institutional and healthcare markets. For instance, the Component Hardware and Keil development team has created a line of revolutionary, low wattage LED light fixtures for walk-in coolers and freezers. The fixtures can save operators anywhere from 50 to 80 percent on the operating costs of conventional incandescent and fluorescent lights, without sacrificing light output. They also easily replace existing out-of-date fluorescent lights and lower overall maintenance costs with extended service life.
“We believe the Keil product line is game changing for the foodservice refrigeration industry,” said Harry Franze, Component Hardware CEO. “Anyone can make a standard hinge or handle for a refrigerator, but Keil components offer true advancements and craftsmanship unlike anything the industry has seen in more than 30 years.”
In addition to innovations in LED lighting, Keil has also introduced a new narrow profile vent port, which utilizes a specialized heating technology to prevent the vent port flaps from freezing. This compact and energy-efficient vent port makes it easier for operators to open and close walk-in cooler and freezer doors, while consuming only nine watts of power.
With these innovative solutions and many others, Keil is working to ensure refrigeration units benefit both OEMs and foodservice retailers. OEMs save time on installation procedures, while foodservice retailers benefit from cost savings with a refrigeration unit that has increased operational performance. Thus, Keil is transforming clunky, expensive foodservice refrigeration units into ones that are energy efficient, durable and cost-effective.
