Available in three sizes, these units are ideal for use in hospitals, medical and physical therapy offices, gyms, spas, and similar environments seeking a user-friendly method to warm blankets.

All models come with a set temperature range of 90 to 140ºF as recommended by the Joint Commission and other advisory organizations. Capacity ranges from 4.57 to 12.17 cu.ft. in 24 inch footprints.
“In redesigning our blanket warmers, our goal was to meet the needs of medical professionals by providing a more efficient way to keep blankets properly warmed,” says Paul Storch, President of Felix Storch, Inc. “Passive heating significantly reduces lint buildup, helping to ensure safer operation in hospitals and other medical facilities.” Additional features include adjustable cantilevered shelving, a hospital grade cord with ‘green dot’ plug for extra protection in high traffic areas, and a factory-installed lock for added security.

ACCUCOLD INTRODUCES ANTIMICROBIAL PURE COPPER HANDLES
Bronx, NY, April 29, 2020 — Accucold, a division of Felix Storch, Inc. (FSI), presents a safeguard against microbes and viruses, including COVID-19, with pure copper handles for refrigerators and freezers used in hospitals, waiting areas, patient rooms, doctors’ offices, schools, and similar environments seeking to ensure a cleaner, safer environment.
In the wake of COVID-19, ensuring clean and sanitary medical facilities has never been more vital to keeping clinical staff, patients, and visitors safe. One of the simplest methods for safeguarding – and ensuring a cleaner facility – is adding copper handles to appliances. Copper kills microbes in a shorter timeframe than other metals, helping to lessen microbe transfer, as well providing a durable, stylish finish to refrigeration.
Available on Accucold’s wide range of healthcare, medical, foodservice, and vaccine grade refrigeration, the new copper handle option comes in two style options. The “TBC” option includes a 12” long towel bar style handle, while the “CP” option comes with a full-length pipe style handle. Equipment sizes range from 1.4 to 21 cu.ft. capacity in compact, counter height, ADA-compliant, and full upright size, with white, black, and stainless steel exterior options. These handles are installed in FSI’s Bronx, NY, facilities.
“We wanted to create an easy, yet incredibly effective and safe solution that not only meets the needs of medical professionals but also helps to protect patients and guests,” says Paul Storch, President of Felix Storch, Inc. “The last thing someone wants to worry about when visiting a medical facility is microbes, and we believe that copper handle refrigerators and freezers help to ensure a cleaner facility while offering peace-of-mind.” Accucold’s pure copper accented refrigerators and freezers are available through a nationwide network of equipment resellers.

Bronx, NY, September 12th, 2019—Accucold, a division of Felix Storch, Inc. (FSI), has launched a new series of purpose-built refrigeration to meet the demanding needs of scientific, life science, laboratory, and medical cold storage applications.

This equipment is designed to operate between 2 and 10ºC, with password-protected parameters that allow experienced staff to adjust as needed.
“Life science storage applications require incredibly precise and reliable cold storage,” says Mark Manders, Vice President of the Accucold division. “With a +/- 1ºC temperature variance, we’re confident that the Med-Lab series will meet those standards while offering the convenient features that makes daily use easier for laboratory staff.”
Additional features include self-closing doors, keyed locks, and alarms for high/low temperature excursions, power outages, and door ajar warnings. Units are available with glass or solid doors in sizes that range from 1 cu.ft. to 15 cu.ft. To learn more, visit accucold.com/medlab or call 718-893-3900.
