Improve Fountain Sanitation

No one is committed to sanitary ice like Follett

Horizon Elite™ Chewblet® ice machines are easy to clean. In fact, it takes less than half the time as other ice machines. With push button operation, you just add cleaning and sanitizing solution. Horizon series machines automatically clean, flush, and return to service.

RIDE® Remote Ice Delivery Equipment Means Sanitary Ice

All Horizon Elite Chewblet ice machines can deliver ice up to 75 ft away…automatically. When the ice is automatically delivered to the dispenser, contamination by human contact is avoided.

RIDE Technology Means Easier Cleaning

Other ice machines can automatically deliver ice to a dispenser, too, but they must be stacked on top of the dispenser. This makes it very difficult to access the dispenser hopper for cleaning. With RIDE technology, the top of a hopper can be easily removed for access to the hopper for thorough cleaning.

Eliminate Cross Contamination

Follett's Symphony Plus™ countertop ice dispenser with Maestro Plus™ Chewblet ice machine can replace ice machines with open bins for small volume ice needs.

Lever or SensorSAFE™ ice dispensing prevents the risk of cross contamination from manual ice scooping. SensorSAFE's infrared sensing further reduces the chance of cross contamination by eliminating container to dispenser contact.

Sanitary ice dispensing makes Symphony Plus countertop ice dispenser a perfect solution for iced coffee bars, where the demand for iced coffee is becoming a year-round beverage, according to the Mintel's data finding.

Our bins promote ice sanitation like no other

Follett's upright ice storage bins are superior to slope front bins as they provide first-in-first-out ice management.  With constant ice turnover, you get clean, fresh ice every time.  Lack of ice turnover can promote stale flavors and odors, as well as promote bacteria growth.

The next step in ice storage sanitation is Follett's gravity feed bins.  Reduce or eliminate the need for scooping and reduce human contact with ice with the Ice•DevIce™ and ITS (Ice Transport System).  Dedicated totes and carts that aren't used for other purposes in your facility can be easily filled and wheeled to their destination.  Reduced worker contact means safer, more sanitary ice.
