Williams’ new cool Under Broiler Counter

Latest model in the UBC range can hold two different sizes of G/N pans

Williams Refrigeration has launched a new model in its range of Under Broiler Counters, model UBC16, which is capable of storing 2/1 and 1/1 Gastronorm pans simultaneously.

The Williams UBC range is designed to provide chefs with refrigerated storage right in the cook-line. The low-height counter unit can hold weights of 279kg, allowing prime cooking equipment like chargrills and griddles to be installed on top of them. This helps to maximize the use of space in smaller environments without compromising on the safety of ingredients. Its 1600mm width and 782mm depth means it can hold two prime cooking appliances, at the same time.

The UBC16 is a four drawer model that offers users greater flexibility with two drawer sizes capable of holding different sized gastro-norm pans. The exterior and interior are constructed from food-safe stainless steel. Precision injected low GWP and zero ODP high density polyurethane insulation saves energy and helps to keep the unit at the required operating temperature in ambient conditions up to 43°C. Its Coolsmart controller provides a clear digital display with visual alarms to maintain failsafe performance and total food safety whilst ensuring energy efficiency.

The refrigeration system uses a natural hydrocarbon refrigerant and is front venting to ensure efficient airflow. The removable cassette system provides easy access for maintenance and service.

“Increasing pressures of space and staff shortages mean more businesses are looking for solutions to create flexible, self-contained cooking stations,” says Malcolm Harling, sales and marketing director of Williams. “The UBC16’s size and ability to take the weight of cooking appliances offers great flexibility and maximises valuable space in the kitchen’

The UBC16’s dimensions are 1600mm wide x 782mm deep x 546mm high and list price is £6,845

Williams Refrigeration offers a comprehensive range of commercial refrigeration including gastronorm cabinets and counters, specialist bakery equipment, coldrooms, multidecks and blast chillers
