IMC Corner Equipment: What’s the Purpose?
Most stainless steel food service equipment is designed to lay flat against the wall or floor for a flush appearance. However, there is specially designed equipment that is solely meant to utilize the corner parts of your work area. But, why would you need this type of equipment in the first place?
In this article, we’ll look at the true purpose of IMC corner equipment & give you a list of concrete examples to give you a better idea. Let’s begin.
IMC Corner Equipment: The Real Benefit
In any commercial environment, especially a kitchen, space is a limited resource. The method in which you develop & use that space can be a determining factor in productivity. If the work area is too cluttered, productivity will dramatically decrease. If the work area is too open, chances are you may be missing some vital equipment to operate your business efficiently.
IMC corner equipment has one main advantage: save valuable floor & wall space. Using this equipment allows you to make the most out of that dead corner space. The ultimate result is better efficiency & results for your business.
IMC corner equipment falls into three main categories: Storage/Organization Equipment, Hygienic/Washing Equipment & Floor Troughs. Let’s break these down below.
