Corsair Engineering

At Corsair Engineering, we’re proud to say that over 70 per cent of our output is bespoke.

Our commitment to providing these unique products, means that distributors can offer their customers the most efficient and cost-effective solution for their particular application, rather than settling for off-the-shelf offerings.

There are lots of factors that are pivotal to a dealer’s offering: it’s important that they choose the ‘right’ products for the end user. Cost is a big issue for dealers and their customers but they also must take into consideration the cost-benefit properties for the solutions on offer. We are very keen to empahsise the difference between price and cost at Corsair –

Making a product adjustable makes it much more convenient and versatile for the end user, and therefore should be attractive to the distributor. Corsair offers various types of height adjustment on our products depending on the application.

For example, we have just made several height-adjustable fish tables for one of the UK’s leading supermarket groups. We also supply a ‘ladder’ system that allows height adjustment of our Wall Shelving and our Racking can be supplied with adjustability using a Corner clamp bracket.

The Corsair team is well experienced in dealing with other manufacturers in the industry to ensure that our offering is designed to perfectly interface with their equipment.

Dishwash tabling certainly requires close liaison with other manufacturers since the merge between the fabrication and the dishwasher is fundamental to the correct flow within the washup area. We recently made an entry table to fit a scheme incorporating a dishwasher which was from the Ark. There would have been no chance of success on that project without the close interaction between the main parties.

Education Catering Facilities

Education catering facilities can be a challenging environment, so it is vital that caterers have to properly designed counters to match the operation.

The first consideration when fitting counters and food display into school dining rooms, is whether you have the space and the budget for a fixed counter, or do you need or want to consider a mobile servery. Fixed counters can be made bespoke with special finishes, surface materials and frontages, but will require design input from a kitchen designer and manufacturer.

It’s important to weigh up what your kitchen needs before making the decision, such as whether your operation can manage with a standard modular unit, or whether a bespoke counter would be required.

Bespoke solutions can be built and tailored to suit both the environment and operation, but tend to be at a higher price point. Modular units can be finished to look bespoke and are a generally more cost-effective option.

Mobile serveries are great where space is limited, allowing you to choose from separate or linked units. They are extremely effective in multi-use rooms and have the ability to create multiple points of sale with minimal investment, and also serve to reduce pressure on the main serving area. These versatile products can be configured to suit the space and should be considered where budgets are limited or, as is more and more the case, there is a dynamic demand environment.

Make sure you are considering the working height of the counter and servery for primary schools versus secondary and comprehensive schools, as these will differ. Aim for good visibility of food and visual contact between server and customer, with no visual obstructions created by gantries, for example.

If you need assistance with creating serveries and counters for a kitchen design project in a school environment, we can help – contact the Corsair Engineering team on 01295 267021.
