Floral Coolers from Ancaster
Flowers require gentle airflow and high humidity to remain beautiful and fresh. It is important to note that standard commercial refrigerators are not suitable for cold floral storage because they use rapid air movement to maintain low humidity levels. This fast airflow hastens the dehydration of flowers and can lead to significant inventory loss. Therefore, investing in the right floral cooler for flowers is vital in the success of a floral business. Ancaster Food Equipment can help if you are looking to purchase floral coolers to maintain your products’ quality and freshness. Here are some tips to assist in your search:
- Most flowers and plants should be stored at 33-35 degrees Fahrenheit to retain freshness.
- In addition to being stored in cool conditions, cut flowers also need to be stored in humid environments to avoid drying out.
- Our floral coolers come with swing doors that are self-closing. These units help florists conserve space.
- Humidity levels in most refrigeration units can fall below 10 percent if the door remains closed most of the time. The humidity in flower coolers is typically set between 80 and 95 percent to keep flowers at their best.
- Our floral coolers are available in a wide range of sizes, e.g., one-, two-, and three- section models. In addition, these systems can be up to 80 inches wide.
- Custom settings to meet the unique requirements of each business and type of flower.
- Our flower coolers come with self-closing swing doors. These units help florists conserve space.
- Our floral coolers feature clear glass panels to offer excellent visibility on all sides.
- If you plan to buy a floral refrigeration system, ensure the product is a specially designed floral cooler.
- Food and beverages should never be stored in a cooler for flowers because high humidity in cabinets promotes the growth of bacteria, which leads to a health code violation.
Benefits of Floral Coolers
One of the most prominent benefits of using floral coolers is that business owners lose fewer flowers to stem and petal wilt, infectious bacteria, and plant dehydration. With a longer shelf life, consumers will be more satisfied with their products and become repeat customers.
Investing in a cooler for flowers provides a greater return on investment by reducing money loss due to product waste. When looking at the costs of standard coolers vs. floral coolers, there is sometimes a draw to the less costly unit. However, in storing living organisms, the chances of losing money due to the wrong cooler is higher. Selecting a customized flower cooler ensures your products last longer and sell better.
The high humidity level provided by a floral fridge restores freshly cut flowers to their maximum potential. After being cut, some plants experience deterioration due to trauma. The moisture-rich environment of a cooler for flowers promotes healing and helps them look their best when it comes time to sell.
