Proprietary Refrigeration Design
Our company’s foundation of unprecedented expertise in self-contained refrigeration has allowed us to pioneer award-winning technology that sets the standard for reliable products with unmatched ease of operation and strong performance. Rather than relying on third-party refrigeration, we engineer and manufacture purpose-built solutions for performance that brings peace of mind that your display is performing as intended.
Structural Concepts designs and assembles its own refrigeration packages. These refrigeration units are built specifically to the requirements needed for the case in which they will be used. This is a key factor in our strong refrigeration performance and energy-saving capabilities and affords the flexibility to respond to changing regulatory standards.
Sheet Metal Lasers
Structural Concepts is vertically integrated to optimize cost and lead time. We operate fully-automated metal cutting lasers, which are capable of running hands-free 24/7/365.
Brake Press / Painting
Metal parts that are cut on our lasers are then formed on one of thirteen brake presses and sent to our in-house painting facility for powder coat paint.
UV Bonded Glass Production Room
To support our goal of designing a case so beautifully simple it disappears, making the product the focus, a 2,600 ft2 UV Bonded Glass Production room was built to produce our frameless display merchandisers. Dedicated, highly skilled employees have been trained to produce these glass components. Specialized glass cleaning machines and operator assist lifts ensure the glass remains defect-free during the bonding process.
Certified Test Labs
We have seven fully equipped ETL satellite-certified test labs. All of the labs are UL approved and designed to test display cases for optimum refrigeration performance and NSF 7 certification. As each case is completed during the final assembly stage it is transferred to a Production Test Lab. All of our refrigerated cases are certified to Type I at a minimum, with a great many certified to Type II. Our heated merchandisers are certified to NSF 4, UL197.
