Energy-Saving Indication Shown On Every Restaurant Range

It’s a clearance rating, printed on the serial tag of every design-certified range. Ratings are determined from tests performed by independent testing laboratories like UL, ETL or CSA (formerly known as AGA). Laboratories set up sensors to take the temperature of range sides as the range is moved closer to the sensors. When the range meets/exceeds a pre-determined safe distance from combustible surfaces like wood cabinets or walls, that distance is the clearance rating. A lower number/distance is a better rating. A range with a superior clearance rating will save energy every day. If a range is located next to refrigeration, a lower clearance rating will put less stress on the refrigeration. If a range must be installed next to refrigeration or solid-state controls; avoid problems, use an insulated range.
