EconoCovers Save Money and Energy

Today we wanted to talk about some unique products Eliason offers to help save money in the Grocery aisle. Do you ever walk more quickly (or get hurried along by children!) through the refrigerated aisles with open coolers due to the colder temperatures? Have you ever stopped to think about how all that energy to keep the food cool is just spilling out into the store?

Granted, many stores are replacing open coolers with more efficient, closed systems as they remodel and upgrade. But there are still many that use the open cooler style, due to either customer and employee convenience or just being low on the priority list for a remodel. Now, think about what happens when the store is closed overnight… does all that cold (and energy) keep spilling out? Not if they use Eliason EconoCovers, which are proven to reduce energy use!


Eliason doors have always been popular in grocery stores, and EconoCovers date back to the early days of Eliason, when we also manufactured walk-in cooler systems. We saw a need and created EconoCovers as a way to keep food fresher, by reducing spoilage from UV light and temperature fluctuations, while saving energy, reducing wear-and-tear on equipment and being cost-efficient. More than 40 years later, they are still an effective solution and typically pay for themselves in a year or less (depending on local electric rates)! They can even reduce the potential for spoilage during a short power outage. You can estimate your own savings by using our handy calculator!

They are made of a heavy duty, 5-mil polyester film fabric that is hygienic and will not rust or attract dust, dirt, mold or mildew. The fabric is precision-perforated so the material will breathe enough to minimize condensation. EconoCovers are available in clear or opaque colors, and two styles which allow them to easily pull over your open cases and keep cool air inside during the off hours.
