J & E Hall digital condensing units installed at farm shop

10 October 2014

Three J & E Hall Series 5 Digital Twin Scroll Commercial Condensing Units have been installed in an extension to the farm shop at the Woodlands Nursery and Garden Centre in Leicestershire.

With a capacity of up to 31kW, the new Series 5 digital units are ideal for retail premises and are a proven packaged alternative to multi-compressor racks. The installer was the Jordon Group of Oldham. 

Six cold stores, a dry storage area, an administrative area and staff room form part of the extension. Fruit, vegetables, meat, and fish are stored ready for use in the farm shop and temperatures for the cold stores range from -2°C to +4°C. A freezer room has to maintain a temperature of -21°C. 

The business, located near Hinckley, provides top quality plants for customers and grows 45,000 poinsettias a year alone. The farm shop is a key part of the operation offering customers fresh and cooked meats, handmade award-winning pies, locally sourced fruit and vegetables, bread and cakes and handmade chocolates.
