We now know what's new to the range, but what are some of the long standing features of Camshelving Basics Plus?
Cambro's Basics Plus shelving is compliant under hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP), backed by original equipment manufacturer (OEM) warranties and insurance and audited by the National Sanitation Foundation. Cambro shelving solutions are a proven way to take HACCP compliance seriously - something that every business owner should have at the front of their mind. This starts with easy to clean removable shelves that won't rust or result in chipped paint.The shelving is also weldness, providing a hygienic design that is built to last.
Multiple configuration options
If you think that installing coolroom shelving is difficult, Cambro Basics Plus makes it easy with simple instructions - plus you only need a rubber or plastic mallet to erect. From here, you can position the shelves as you require them.
Of course, one of the benefits of Cambro shelving is that there are multiple configuration options. The three shelving lines including Basics Plus can be configured to fit your storeroom or coolroom offering users single units, corner or U-shape units.
Basics Plus is designed to work with your space. For example, if there is a post in the middle of the storeroom, two units can attach to this structure without affecting the weight bearing capacity of either.
Again, looking at food safety and hygiene, all shelf plates can be removed to be cleaned - reducing the risk of cross-contamination. The plates are designed with a smooth non-porous conducive for comprehensive cleaning and easy spill control.
How Camshelving Basics Plus can support your business
On the surface, shelving might not seem like a major equipment decision compared to combi ovens or deep fryers. However,storeroom shelving is the start of the kitchen journey - ensuring that each dish that is served to your customers is safe and free from contamination.
This is why shelving is a necessary investment as Chris Wilson, Projects Manager at Royal Randwick Racecourse describes.
"The cheaper shelving out there doesn't work long–term. It chips easily and rusts, and then of course there are HACCP concerns with this," he said.
"When it came to selecting a storage system for our new glassware and crockery, we knew instantly we were in safe hands with Comcater and Cambro."
