Soon you'll start to see the GEMS ready icon (below) on SKOPE product. When you see it, you can have confidence that the model is one of the vast majority that already meets the improved minimum standards that will be implemented from May 2021.
To achieve this status requires intensive testing at SKOPE's state-of-the-art commercial refrigeration R&D centre in Christchurch, New Zealand. The facility accurately replicates all the different heat and humidity zones experienced in Australia to guarantee that each unit is thoroughly and realistically put through their paces.
Each GEMS test takes about a week to complete and it's one of many tests in our product test programme which can see certain units tested over the course of weeks and months. So you can have complete peace of mind that your choice of GEMS Ready fridge or freezer is fit for purpose.
Not every manufacturer of commercial refrigeration has supported improvements to the minimum standards that will support your business. Find out why we're committed to supporting improvements to GEMS.
