Central Production Kitchen - Case Study

Shelfspan supplied and installed a range of solution-specific storage products to help a busy central production kitchen produce 20,000 meals per week.


Background & Requirements

The new-build kitchen provides fresh meals, groceries, clean laundry and cleaning supplies to nursery schools. They turned to Shelfspan to supply and install cost effective, suitable storage products to the varying areas and environments including cold-rooms, dry store, linen/laundry, bulk storage and staff locker rooms. 

After completing a site survey, Shelfspan used their expertise to decide on the right products and layouts to maximise storage area while keeping the budget in mind. The installation was then carried out effectively and efficiently by Shelfspan employed and fully trained staff.


The Solutions
CPK- Cold-Rooms
Cold-Rooms - Eko Fit

  • The 440 size variations meant that the best fit was ensured to maximise storage space in the small rooms.
Linen/Laundry Dry Store - Eclipse® Chrome Wire
  • Allow airflow to keep laundry fresh - Hardwearing chrome wire shelving was chosen for this area due to it's excellent airflow capabilities to help keep the laundry fresh.
