EU Regulations on Eco Design & Energy Labelling 2016 - Directive 2009/125/EC and Directive 2010/30/EU

It’s an Adande® with unique ‘Hold the Cold®’ technology; it works like no other fridge or freezer!

The EU Eco Design Regulation (Directive 2009/125/EC) will ensure that newly produced professional refrigerators and freezers will have to fulfil minimum energy efficiency requirements from 1st July 2016.

Directive 2010/30/EU, stipulates production of an  accompanying Energy Label (see visual example) for all commercial refrigeration products offered for sale from July 2016.
Products falling below the minimum performance level (G) will not be eligible for sale within EU member states.

Manufacturers and suppliers may self-certify that their products meet the minimum requirements and that the energy label is correct, but claims may be subject to verification and/or testing by the National  Measurement Office.

Adande products have been tested to the harmonised Test Standard ‘EN16825:2015  Commercial Service Refrigerated Cabinets  and Counters intended for use in commercial  kitchens - Definition of performance characteristics  and energy consumption’.  
Adande units have unique ‘Hold the Cold®’ technology that drives energy efficiency as the cold air is withheld.

It is important to note that due to the unique temperature span, almost all Adande units can operate between -22 °C to +15 °C, they are therefore classified as ‘Multi Use’ products and are mandatorily tested/labelled in Freezer  operation mode but Adande have also tested the drawers in Fridge mode and the equivalent label/classification is indicated in the table below.

The regulation is designed to make it clearer for consumers in EU member states to  understand and make purchasing decisions aligned with energy efficiency ratings.
