Quick service restaurants are preparing to reopen as shelter in place restrictions lift. The CDC recommends handwashing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when employees arrive at work and at scheduled times throughout their shift to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The FDA advises frequently cleaning floors, counters, and other facility access areas. Having reliable hot water is a necessity at QSRs to aid in comfortable handwashing and support janitorial and sanitation requirements.
Eemax, a manufacturer of tankless electric water heaters, is committed to providing safe, efficient, code-compliant handwashing solutions. Eemax heaters can be installed at the point-of-use for endless, on-demand hot water for handwashing and sanitation, helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and foodborne illnesses. Eemax products are installed in America’s most popular quick service restaurant chains, including Subway. Eemax heaters are 90% smaller than a tank heater, maximizing space for franchise licensees looking to use every square inch of space wisely.
Eemax channel partner, C7 National®, has assisted Subway® Restaurants of Central Florida to specify Eemax in their QSRs to provide endless hot water, free up valuable store space, and significantly lower utility costs.
“I want to thank the team at C7 and Eemax for the professional business-like manner afforded to us throughout the entire process of communicating, purchasing, and installing the ProSeries XTP™ tankless electric water heater. You made it so simple!” says Marco Mendieta, construction manager for Subway® Restaurants of Central Florida.
Eemax Tankless Electric Water Heaters for QSRs:
ProSeries XTP™ can support an entire quick service restaurant’s hot water needs. In a recent Subway installation, it supported a 3-bay sink, 2 handwashing sinks, and 2 washrooms. It can accommodate temperatures up to 180 degrees Fahrenheit and flow rates from 0.5 to 20 GPM. It supports food prep and sanitation with consistent hot water at high flow rates.
AccuMix II™ supports public handwashing with an integrated ASSE 1070 mixing valve to ensure code compliance for lavatories.
LavAdvantage™ is a thermostatic tankless electric water heater with a flow activation of 0.2 GPM for multiple sensor or metering faucets. LavAdvantage™ can be made code compliant for public handwashing with the use of an ASSE 1070 rated mixing valve or if the fixture already has an integrated mixing valve.
