SCHOTT engineers revolutionized cooking in 1971 with a black glass-ceramic: CERAN®. Today, the rock star sets new standards for cooking in the future.
With maximized visibility and pioneering design into a new era of glass door systems SCHOTT Termofrost® Smart Access, the first door system that allows touchless opening of a closed refrigerated cabinet, was honored within the Innovation Award of AIT (Architecture Interior Technical solutions) and xia Intelligente Architektur. The door design convinced the jury with the innovative nature of the overall concept and its superb execution of the technology. Smart Access attractively displays chilled food and creates a new buying experience in food retail. The groundbreaking glass door system makes product presentation more appealing and by that triggers impulse purchases of supermarket customers. “We received great feedback from the market so far, with several supermarket installations already and even were honored for its innovative strength. This confirms that we have developed the kind of solution the market is looking for,” explains Dietmar Nilles, Sales Manager Food Display at SCHOTT.
