Cold Food Unit – CARF Series

Refrigerated Frost Top

The frost cart provides the most attractive way of displaying your pre-plated cold foods. The unit frosts over quickly, provided a bed of snow—the perfect setting for salads and desserts. The unit is fully self-contained and can be located anywhere in your serving line—just plug it in and turn it on.

The attractive streamlined design, plus the variety of laminates, give you a wide range of choices to complement any decor. The unmatched feature of the CA-Cart line is the self-locking device which eliminates loose fasteners or molding strips to lock units together. Simply push the units together; the carts will automatically lock and the top will be flush and level, regardless of the floor’s condition. It’s the right cart for your serving line needs.


TOP: Constructed of 16 gauge, type 304 stainless steel, die-formed, welded, ground and polished. Top is provided with an opening to receive the appropriate sized drop-in cold serving unit. An integral locking device shall be provided to align and retain cart positioning when two or more carts are joined.

BODY: Frame construction shall be of hi-tensile aluminum square tubing, 1-1/4″ x 1-1/4″. Frame sections are welded construction, ground and polished to a uniform finish. Body is complete with front panel of plastic laminate on .050 aluminum. Owner to specify finish.

REFRIGERATED FROST TOP: The cart is complete and includes a WF series drop-in refrigerated frost top installed in the top.

The top stands 1″ above the counter top and is surrounded by 1/2″ full perimeter gutter to collect melted condensate; a 1/2″ IPS drain is provided.

REFRIGERATION SYSTEM: The compressor housing shall be fabricated from formed angles and bolted to the base of the unit. A fully self-contained condensing unit is provided, with hermetically sealed compressor and a thermostat control. The system is fully charged with CFC-free refrigerant and ready to operate.

ELECTRICAL: The unit will be wired for 15 amp, 120 volt, single phase operation with an on/off thermostat switch and pilot light. A 6′ long, 3-wire cord and plug (NEMA 5-15ISP) will be provided.
