Tritan lids for gastronorm containers: an innovative, sustainable solution
Tritan lids for gastronorm containers are indispensable accessories in the professional kitchen. They offer an environmentally-friendly, durable alternative to traditional plastic or metal lids.
They are a durable and hygienic solution for protecting your culinary preparations. Investing in these innovative accessories not only guarantees better food preservation, but also appreciable energy savings over the long term.
Why choose tritan for bin lids?
Tritan is a revolutionary material developed by Eastman Chemical Company. It is a BPA (bisphenol A)-free copolyester, which means it contains no harmful substances that can migrate into food during storage or cooking. This material combines the best properties of glass, plastic and metal, while being lighter, impact-resistant and easy to maintain.
The advantages of Tritan lids for gastronorm containers
Unlike other materials such as polycarbonate or stainless steel, Tritan does not warp over time or under the effect of heat. What's more, its scratch resistance means that it stays looking like new even after repeated use.
The fact that these lids are transparent makes it much easier to quickly check bin contents without having to constantly lift the lid. What's more, their non-porous surface prevents the growth of bacteria and makes them easy to clean.
Tritan lids are available in a range of sizes to fit all types of gastronorm containers, whether stainless steel or synthetic. They are also compatible with international industry standards (GN 1/1, GN 1/2, etc.).
Thanks to their excellent thermal insulation, these lids help maintain food temperatures for longer. As a result, they help reduce energy consumption, and therefore your energy costs.
How to choose the right Tritan lid?
To make sure you make the right choice among the many options available on the market:
- Check that the product is made of genuine Tritan.
- Make sure it fits the size and type of gastronome tray you're already using.
- Choose a model with an ergonomic handle for easy handling when hot or cold.
