Interested in catering? Make sure you’ve got the right equipment

The catering business is packed with innovative appliances that can make any job profoundly easier, whether it’s through better and more efficient refrigeration, faster heat times or other related measurements.

For example, one of the best products on the market right now is the Chillogen – a portable tool that provides the best chilled storage environment alongside a fast regeneration oven.

With our innovative Chillogen technology, regenerated food looks and tastes like it’s fresh from the chef’s oven

Both are housed in a single compartment on wheels, making it easier than ever to take the professional chef’s kitchen on the road.

The Chillogen uses next-generation technology that can help cater food to plates, load the unit, switch on, store, regenerate and unload easier than ever. The entire cycle can be automated, give caterers more time to focus on the event at hand.

Overall, these banqueting trolleys can lead to faster service, easier planning and better food quality.

If you’d rather focus on cooking and serving piping hot food, there are several trolleys available that are designed to do just that. The Versigen VG trolley ensures food is always kept at the ideal temperature without burning it or drying it out.

When it comes time to serve the food, caterers can relax knowing that diners will receive hot, appealing and nutritious food quickly and efficiently.

This is an ideal choice for any hospital or similar operation that needs to distribute food throughout a large facility.

For trayed meals, one of the best options is the Gemini trolley, which eliminates the risks of employees burning themselves by handling hot food. Food can be plated in the kitchen, put on trays and loaded directly into the trolley.

Whether it’s for a traveling catering business or for corporate lunches, the right equipment can make all the difference.

Cleaning carts are far more than just mobile rubbish bins

There’s much more to cleaning carts than meets the eye, and although they may just look like trash cans on wheels, an ideal cart will give an employee all the necessary items to get the job done right.

Revolutionary line of highly featured, high aesthetic compact
cleaning carts for light cleaning and waste collection

SpacePac has a revolutionary line of Spacepac cleaning carts that come with a number of options for waste collection, all caged in an aesthetically pleasing case that can go anywhere.

In addition to the rubbish bin, these carts will have tool organisation compartments that easily store tongs, scrapers, pens and dusters. Below this there is a nine gallon storage compartment with a wide opening that makes it easy to store and retrieve all kinds of cleaning supplies.

The ergonomically designed handle ensures operator comfort, and the ideal height of the grips make it easy to see above and around the mobile unit. There are also several hooks along the sides of the product, which workers can use to hang a range of products. This may include mops, brooms or window cleaners.

At the center of the cart is the patent-pending 2-way rubbish door, which meets all hygienic requirements. The doors can open front to back or side to side – whatever is easiest for the operator.

SpacePac also has a long line of compact waste and cleaning carts available. These products have many of the same offerings as the standard cleaning cart, but are more tailored for waste stream management systems and the segregation of recyclables and waste.

Both products come with non-marking swivel castors that make handling in tight spaces a breeze, as well as rubber tool grips that make it easy to hang on to the cart no matter how heavy it gets.

When looking at supply and linen trolleys, go lightweight

Hotels, hospitals and linen services all move huge amounts of clothes, bedding and other items long distances every day.

While it makes sense to invest in a good trolley that will lower employee strain and fatigue while lasting for years, many businesses overlook the importance of choosing a product that is both durable and lightweight.

Finding this good ratio between durability and weight is often rooted in the design of the trolley. For example, a medium-duty trolley will most likely have enough vertical bars to ensure all items stay in their place, but not an excessive amount that would add unnecessary bulk.

However, there are several specifications to look for in a supply and linen trolley aside from the ideal weight. An open supply trolley, for example, is best for carrying bulkier items that can be stacked. These products have three enclosed sides with vertical bars and an open side for loading and unloading contents.

The best models will have a six-wheel configuration that makes manoeuvrability simpler than ever, but also ensures operators can move the trolley in a straight line with ease.

For any operations that deal specifically with linen bags, it may be best to choose a trolley that has three enclosed sides with vertical bars as well as two removable diagonal bars that work to keep linen in even when the trolley is moving.

Both of these products are available from Spacepac Laundry / Linen Trolleys, and offer the needed six-wheel configuration as well as a mesh bottom that helps keep overall weight down.

When purchased from Spacepac, these products can even be tailored to individual operations. For example, if a trolley needs to travel greater distances, there are models available that can accommodate for this.

Boosting employee welfare with the right equipment

It’s easy to quantify the benefits of investing in new equipment. A single expense for better machinery can yield years of faster, more efficient and higher quality work.

But when it comes to seeing productivity improvements based on employee morale and well-being, the lines become a little blurred. HR managers have traditionally been split on just how much should be invested in employee welfare, since hard, measurable ROI can be difficult to derive.

Fortunately, one Australian group set out to determine precisely what kind of returns managers can see if they invest in building up employee morale – and the results of the study were stunning.

Corporate psychology firm Davidson Trahaire Corpsych recently released a study that showed investing in employee well-being had a direct cost benefit of about $10,000 per worker every year. Absenteeism – another serious hidden cost factor – can also be lowered by as much as 30 per cent, the researchers found.

“We all know that looking after employees is the right thing to do for the health of your people, but now we know it’s also the right thing for the financial strength of your business,” said DTC Chief Executive Michele Grow.

So it stands to reason that a company that invests in productivity-boosting machinery that also serves as an employee morale builder would be a double-edged sword that could significantly slash costs.

Spacepac’s multipurpose trolleys and trailers for wheelie bins are an ideal way to make employees’ working lives much easier. Whether it’s used in a hospital for transporting cleaning supplies or a loading dock for moving waste bins, these easy-rolling carriers turn any moving job into a simple push or pull.

Happy employees are productive employees, and thanks to the research from DTC, there’s also proof that such an investment is good for any business’ bottom line.
