Vertical open air merchandisers provide grab-and-go storage for grocery and convenience stores.

With their open front design, customers won't have to open a door to access products. These commercial refrigerators use a curtain of forced air to maintain interior temperatures. This allows the unit to function effectively without a door. Adjustable shelves allow you to design appealing displays. Interior lighting illuminates contents for the best presentation of goods for sale. With a vertical open air merchandiser, your business can display a wide variety of refrigerated products for quick sales. Stock up bottled beverages, wraps, sandwiches, salads, and other pre-packaged treats so customers can grab what they need quickly and easily with a vertical open air merchandiser.

Buying Considerations:

  • Visibility - Both models with and without partial glass fronts are available in our collection of vertical open air merchandisers. Additionally, we offer solid and glass side options. While solid sides are sturdier and may help reduce energy costs, glass sides allow customers to view products from more angles.
  • Exterior finish - We offer units made of stainless steel, white or black powder-coated steel, and white or black vinyl. Select a vertical open air merchandiser that matches your current setup or enhances the appearance of your business.
  • Capacity - We offer a variety of vertical open air merchandisers from widths of 30" to 100" to meet all storage and room requirements. We have the perfect fit for you, whether you need a small unit to hold a few bottled drinks for sale or a larger model for light meals and pre-packaged snacks.

Frequently Asked Questions About Vertical Open Air Merchandisers

What's the difference between a glass door merchandiser and an open air merchandiser?

The difference is in how the products are presented. Open-air merchandisers have more visible contents and are easier for customers to access because they lack doors. Sandwiches, fruit platters, fresh salads, and packaged deli items are a few examples of foods that go well in these refrigerators because of their short shelf lives. Open-air display coolers can also be used to advertise grab-and-go snacks.

Do vertical open air merchandisers have lighting?

Vertical open air merchandisers will have interior lighting unless otherwise stated. Recently, manufacturers have chosen to use LED lighting in their products. LED lighting outperforms conventional light bulbs in terms of durability, energy efficiency, and brightness. In the past, safety shielded fluorescent lighting was a mainstay for interior lighting. To confirm lighting options, check the spec sheet of your potential product.

Can I leave food in a vertical open air merchandiser overnight?

Despite the fact that goods can be left in open-air display cases overnight, we suggest getting a night cover. Night covers, which are frequently included, can help reduce energy use when an open air merchandiser is not in use.

Are vertical open air merchandisers for pre-packaged goods only?

All commercial refrigerators will specify whether it is suitable for pre-packaged or open food products. Each model's spec sheet contains this information. Open food products and pre-packaged foods are both covered by an NSF rating. The majority of vertical open air merchandisers have a pre-packaged food only rating.
