As everybody within our industry is aware the Eco design Directive for Professional Refrigerated Storage Cabinets came into force from the 1st July 2016, here at Pentland Wholesale we have been monitoring the situation and working with our suppliers to ensure all our products continuously comply with EU legislation.
In brief, the products that are included are all solid door fan assisted refrigerated cabinets used for storage but not display of product. These products were rated A – G depending on the operating efficiency however the 1st July 2019 will see a new change to the Eco design Directive relating to professional refrigeration products, with an additional drive for manufacturers to make their equipment more efficient and to reduce carbon emissions. The energy efficiency classifications have changed and the previous F rated products can no longer be manufactured, as such all new applicable cabinets will now be rated with an energy efficiency rating
of A+++ to E.
