Sigma is a modular merchandising system tailored to create stunning visual displays and abundant presentations to showcase more variety of produce without the need for large inventory that can be lost through shrink. It boasts effective cooler circulation with aluminium shelving while the shelving and racking units are made of anodized aluminium that will never rust, peel, chip or flake. The aluminium draws out and dissipates heat quicker than steel, which ensures effective cooler circulation and maximizes refrigeration air flow.
