Vision ice and beverage dispenser
Create an upscale beverage station

Go with a low profile Vision™ undercounter dispenser instead of an obtrusive countertop model

  • Mount the ice machine in a back room or under a counter and remove the heat and noise from your dining area
Horizon Elite with RIDE
Deliver fresh, sanitary ice

Easier cleaning

  • Horizon Elite takes less than half the time to clean as other ice machines
  • Just add cleaning and sanitizing solution and Horizon Elite automatically cleans, flushes, and returns to service

RIDE remote ice delivery equipment means sanitary ice

  • When the ice is automatically delivered to the dispenser, contamination by human contact is avoided
  • Without an ice machine on top, the dispenser hopper can be easily accessed for thorough cleaning

Eliminate cross-contamination

Replace ice machines with open bins for small volume ice needs

  • Symphony Plus with 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

  • Uses 35% less water and uses less electricity than cube-style machines

Reduce scale-mitigation expenses

  • Horizon Elite produces ice that is 85% lower TDS concentration than that of incoming water
  • Horizon Elite reduces or eliminates the need for reverse osmosis or other expensive scale control in high TDS water

Superior performance in all water conditions

Cost of scale in hard water

  • In high TDS water, machines need to be descaled far more frequently, costing as much as $200 per visit
  • Reverse osmosis is an expensive alternative to frequent descaling
  • Neglecting descaling can significantly shorten equipment life

How does Horizon Elite remove TDS?

  • The incoming water at the front of the evaporator forces high TDS water to the reservoir at the back of the machine where it's expelled in small volume flushes
  • The result is high quality ice with a fraction of the water that cube ice machines use

Make your facility safer for employees and guests

  • Horizon Elite with RIDE remote ice delivery equipment automatically transports the ice to the dispenser or bin without the risk of slips and falls on spilled ice
  • Staff can manually fill Vision ice and beverage dispensers at waist height instead of climbing on ladders or stools
