Remote Ice Delivery Equipment
A great RIDE for
Safer, smarter ice
Follett ice machines with RIDE® Remote Ice Delivery Equipment push Chewblet® ice through a tube to automatically fill a drink station, storage bin or jockey box – without the need for any human contact with the ice.
GREATER DESIGN FLEXIBILITY
A Follett ice machine with RIDE offers the ultimate in installation flexibility, because it can be positioned almost anywhere – under a counter, mounted on a wall, or in a back room up to 75 feet away
MORE INVITING FOR CUSTOMERS
Traditionally, dispensers are “auto-filled” by placing an ice machine directly on top of them. This creates heat and noise in the retail area. A Follett ice machine can auto-fill through a tube from outside the customer area, creating a more attractive, open, inviting fountain area for customers.
Unique RIDE technology pushes the ice through the tube. There is no opportunity for contamination from human contact or from dirty buckets or other receptacles during transport.
When a Follett ice machine with RIDE is installed out of the customer area, cleaning and service of the machine always takes place out of the customer’s view. It’s also easier to clean and service the beverage dispenser, since there is no machine of any type on top of it.
CUSTOMERS CHOOSE CHEWBLET ICE!
All Follett ice machines produce Chewblet ice – uniformly shaped pieces of chewable ice that are preferred by up to 70% of consumers. Chewblet ice is higher in quality than other forms of nugget ice and dispenses more reliably.
