In January 2019, Leer Inc., manufacturer of retail ice merchandising equipment and custom Walk-In Coolers and Freezers, will launch an entirely new product line to help the restaurant industry maximize their valuable kitchen space.

The Reach-In Storage Freezers combine the technology from Leer’s iconic, white outdoor ice merchandisers with the shelving and storage optimization of Leer’s Walk-In Freezers. This economic solution frees up valuable indoor space and relocates the storage of excess frozen goods outside.

Regarding Leer’s line of Reach-In Storage Freezers, Brian Nemec, Director of Engineering, says, “it was a no brainer for us to develop. We’ve been producing Outdoor Ice Merchandisers for over 65 years, so we know our products are built to perform outside.”

Ben Albregts, Director of Sales, believes “the Reach-In Storage Freezers are a perfect solution for restaurants struggling from space constraints in their kitchen. Why take up more space inside, when the food can stay fresh and out of the chefs’ way in an outdoor Reach-In Storage Freezer. This is also an excellent option for restaurants required to take after our deliveries.”

To make this possible, the Reach-In Storage Freezers feature:

  • Robust construction ensuring optimal performance in all outdoor elements
  • Approximately 100 cubic feet of internal freezer storage with a small external footprint
  • Adjustable shelving units capable of holding up to 100lbs per shelf

Throughout 2019, Leer will be developing outdoor Reach-In Storage Coolers, as well as multiple size options of both the freezers and coolers.
