Construction and Installation:


  • Cabinets are built on the monostructure system which combines maximum useful internal space with minimum floorspace requirement.
  • They are robust without being unduly heavy or bulky.
  • The internal and external shells are stainless steel which combines clinical cleanliness and durability with a permanent attractive appearance.
  • Polyurethane insulation is used to meet the particular requirements of refrigeration in mortuaries.


  • Castors as standard.


  • Fittings comprise heavy-duty chromium–plated handles and hinges
  • Magnetic door gaskets
  • Temperature indicator, on ⁄ off switch and running light.
  • Option: Each door can be fitted with a holder for an identification card.


  • Top Mounted Refrigeration System that requires no installation.
  • All cabinets are temperature controlled individually and can be isolated when not in use.
  • Within the cabinet is a frost–free forced air circulation system and automatic temperature control.
  • The refrigeration system is designed for a storage temperature of +2 ⁄ +4°C in an ambient temperature of 43°C.
  • Temperature Ranges: Refrigerators 2°C to 4°C


  • A 38mm drain is provided for connection to existing plumbing.
  • An S ⁄ trap should be fitted between the cabinet drain outlet and existing plumbing.


  • Stretchers are made of stainless steel
  • The tubular frame holding the stretcher tray has integral hand slides at both ends.
  • The stretchers are mounted on polypropylene glide rollers for easy handling.
  • The tubular construction of the stretchers makes them light in proportion to their load–bearing capacity.


Stacker trolleys are available as an optional extra for easy stretcher loading


  • The refrigerator should be installed in a level position in a well–ventilated position.
  • All refrigerator units run on 240V 10amp single phase.
  • The air inlet for the motor is at the front grill — the air outlet is on top of this unit at the front.
  • Internal cleaning can be achieved by a hose or other means as the cabinet is provided with a drain point at the front.
  • It is important to direct the hose away from the evaporator motors and all power.
  • The power cord is on the left side of cabinet at the top approx 300mm from the front.
  • As the above items are at the front ⁄ front top of the unit, the units are able to be positioned against walls or other units at the sides and rear — no clearances needed.
  • In small areas an exhaust fan may be required.
