In today’s world of instant access to everything, many customers expect their fit-outs to be done more quickly. Unfortunately, with the skills shortage in Australia, the reality is actually different, with lead times for café fit-outs often as long as they have ever been.

There is a solution, by doing a completely modular fitout, using products such as Koldtech and Simply Stainless.

Front counter for Cafes, Takeaways and Delis have traditionally been long drawn out and expensive affairs, usually involving a combination of trades from shop fitters, joiners and sheet-metal workers to refrigeration mechanics and electricians.

The trouble with this methodology is not only is it costly, it also means extensive lead times from the date of order.

An additional problem in this day and age is that the design of a one-off unit might also struggle to combine the needs of food hygiene standards alongside those for energy efficiency such as MEPS.

The Koldtech Squareline (SQRCD) range not only meets these standards for several hot and cold display applications, but also has modular front counters designed to line up with the range.

The counters incorporate the same front profile as the display cabinets, but can be used for customer service areas and cash registers. The counters come in lengths of 900mm, 1200mm and 1500mm. The all stainless steel construction accommodates a shelf under at the service side.

Modular front counters are available from Stoddart.
