Summit Appliance Introduces Energy Saving Door Tints
An Attractive & Efficient New Way To Look At Refrigeration
Bronx, NY—Glass door refrigerators are getting an energy efficient makeover with Summit Appliance’s new tinted door options. Available in four styles, these tints help to prevent light from damaging stored items, thereby reducing energy consumption and saving on running costs.
“Many wine enthusiasts love to display their collections behind glass doors, but this puts every bottle in a vulnerable place,” says Paul Storch, CEO of Felix Storch, Inc. “Even double or triple pane glass will allow some light to penetrate the door. This forces the refrigerator or wine cellar to work harder to maintain its temperature.”
Summit’s door tints are designed to help combat the harmful effects of natural and artificial light. Using Clear Distortion Free adhesive technology, reflective or low-e film is applied directly to the glass doors of any Summit beverage center or wine cellar.
Four different color options provide a range in energy savings and interior visibility. A mirror finish in low-e film allows maximum energy savings, rejecting 85% of solar energy and reducing glare by 87%. Blue tints come in two styles: a midnight blue finish with 69% solar energy rejection and glare reduction, and a lighter blue that provides more interior visibility. For the customer looking for moderate protection, Summit offers a light smoke tint that keeps stored items in view. All options reject up to 99% of UV rays.
“There are some applications where a door tint can be absolutely vital to cold storage,” says Storch. “When a refrigerator is placed in direct sunlight, a tinted door will offer noticeable improvement in its temperature performance. On the other hand, some customers just love the look.”
Summit carries an extensive selection of built-in and full-size wine cellars, as well as commercial beverage centers and outdoor display refrigerators. All units can be customized with these door tints. To learn more about the energy savings of door tinting and to view the different options, visit http://www.summitappliance.com/tint
