Anthony® Announces the Automatic Hold-Open for All 401 Door Models

The Automatic Hold Open makes restocking of merchandise easier and faster

Anthony, part of Dover Food Retail, is pleased to announce the addition of the Automatic Hold-Open feature to its 401 Series (Models 401E and 403E) commercial cooler and freezer doors. 

401 Series doors, part of Anthony’s Rugged and Robust Line of doors, are the economical choice for entry-level doors, offering high-quality design, construction, and premium features typically found only in more exclusive door models. The Automatic Hold-Open feature will replace the current manual hold-open function, allowing retailers to restock merchandise more efficiently. The Automatic Hold-Open will also make it easier for customers to prop open refrigerator and freezer doors, enhancing the overall shopping experience.

Benefits of the Automatic Hold-Open feature:
• Enhances shopping experience 
• Reduces costs - faster merchandising restocking for improved operational efficiencies
• Left and right hinge reversible - decreases parts maintenance and parts inventory

“We understand the needs of our customers and their shoppers,” said Uri Rainisch, Senior Product Manager for Dover Food Retail. “It’s our mission to always offer the best solutions to them.  Adding the Automatic Hold-Open as a standard feature to our 401E Series doors helps retailers restock their shelves faster, offers them the flexibility they need with a universal hold-open for left- or right-hinge doors, but most importantly, it provides the shopper a more pleasant experience.”
