Model 1000AD

Outdoor, Auto Defrost, Upright, Double Solid-Doors Ice Merchandiser

Polar Temp’s Model 1000AD keeps your product at just the right temperature year-round in the harshest of environments. Its robust and efficient 1/2 horsepower refrigeration system uses environmentally friendly R-448A as its refrigerant. R-448A reduces the potential for global warming by almost two-thirds and is approved for use in all fifty states.

The Ceram-A-Star® high-performance white finish is superior in both scratch and weather resistance, keeping maintenance costs low and your merchandiser looking new for many years to come.

With 3 inches of insulation in the top and bottom of all merchandisers, Polar Temp Ice Merchandisers are some of the best insulated in the industry. Ecomate® foam-in-place insulation is EPA-approved, has no ozone depletion potential, and is thermally-efficient, keeping your operating cost to a minimum.

The insulated aluminum door with heavy-duty hinges has welded corners and is steel reinforced, making these doors extremely durable. The magnetic gaskets guarantee a perfect seal, keeping the cold in and keeping your product fresh and sellable longer.

  1. For depth measurements of indoor, upright style merchandisers, add 3.5" for the glass door and handle. For depth measurements of outdoor, upright style merchandisers, add 3.5" for the rain guard. For depth measurements of slant-front style merchandisers, add 1'' for the solid door and handle. For depth measurements of auto defrost models with an electric condensation pan, add 5.25".

  2. The height measurement is inclusive of the hood (compressor)

  3. Bag Capacity was calculated by measuring up to the "Fill Line" in Auto Defrost Merchandisers (the area above the Fill Line contains the evaporator and room around the evaporator that is necessary for air circulation). Cold Wall Merchandisers do not have an evaporator or a Fill Line, and thus the entire interior of these merchandisers can be used for ice storage. Calculations account for decreased room due to slant in slant-front merchandisers. Ice bag capacity is approximate. The method and location of bag tie-off, as well as the type and size of ice used, can affect bag capacity.

  4. 15-amp circuit required for each model

  5. DOE Compliant - meets U.S. Department of Energy standards

  6. ETL Listed - meets electrical safety standards in accordance to UL 471, 10th Edition

  7. ETL Sanitation Listed - meets sanitation standards in accordance to NSF 7
