Structural Concepts fully compliant with incoming refrigeration regs


Structural Concepts, creator of refrigeration display units for the foodservice industry, has announced that all of its products now comply with upcoming regulations on HFCs.

From January 1, 2020, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) are implementing restrictions on the use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). This is part of a wider global effort to reduce HFC pollution, a leading cause of greenhouse gases.

Structural Concepts claims that its cases now emit the lowest emissions of any on the market, since it updated its line to comply with CARB regulations.

Since abandoning stationary refrigeration rack systems in favour of self-contained display cases, the company’s products now present a quarter of the global warming potential of their HFC predecessors.

Structural Concepts says its products are no more expensive in spite of the 4000 hours’ research its team did.

It also offers conversion kits to make older products more environmentally friendly.

Structural Concepts’ full range includes display cases for supermarkets as well as the wider foodservice industry.
