IR28-04 Desktop Rack Enclosure IceStation ITSENCLOSURES

ITSENCLOSURES Introduces NEMA 4 Desktop Rack Enclosure

Mt. Pleasant, PA (May 26, 2020) – For over 35 years, ITSENCLOSURES has been designing and constructing the toughest rack enclosures in the enclosure marketplace. IceStation by ITSENCLOSURES is happy to announce a new heavy-duty enclosure solution for rack mountable electronics (switches, routers, and network equipment): the NEMA 4 desktop IR282626-04 rack enclosure. The NEMA 4 enclosure will guard against dust, dirt, grease, hose directed water, corrosives, and weather conditions like rain, sleet, and snow.

Designed with 19” square punched rack channel (supports square cage-nuts for either #10-32 or M6 threaded mounting screws), the IR28-04 rack enclosure is fabricated out of 14-gauge cold rolled steel with the outside dimensions measuring 28” high by 26” wide by 26” deep. Internally, the desktop rack enclosure offers 12U of available rack space.

The IR28-04 front and rear doors feature two-point latching with locks and long-lasting dual durometer EPDM gasket. A tempered safety glass or polycarbonate window (17.2” Wide x 13.6” High with a 21.9” diagonal) can be installed on the 12-gauge steel front door. In addition, the doors can be easily removed by lifting the pins on the hinges.

“At ITSENCLOSURES, we strive to be the market leader for unique enclosure products and have been building durable enclosures since 1985. Our new, NEMA rated desktop rack enclosure will benefit manufacturing and industrial companies in need of protecting rack mountable equipment in rough, wet environments,” said JT Spangler, CEO of ITSENCLOSURES. “Time and time again, the inspiration for new products can be traced back to the immediate needs of our loyal customers. It is exciting to see how a simple idea can turn into a robust product, which will be used in factories and harsh environments across the country.”

The unit can be positioned on a desk, table, or under a workspace – the small footprint makes it perfect for limited space areas. Other mounting options include a vertically adjustable, bolt-down pedestal to create a proper height for users or an adjustable mobile pedestal to move the enclosure around a factory floor.

ITSENCLOSURES Introduces Desktop Rack Enclosure

Mt. Pleasant, PA (June 29, 2018) – Designing and developing the most durable enclosures on the market, ITSENCLOSURES has announced another tough, heavy-duty enclosure: the IceStation IR262428-12, a NEMA 12 desktop rack enclosure.

The IceStation IR26 rack enclosure is designed to shield and protect rack mountable electronics in harsh and dirty factory facilities. The IR26-12 is fabricated out of 14-gauge painted steel (black powder coated) and measures 26” high by 24” wide by 28” deep.

The interior of the rack enclosure features front and rear mounting rails which are square punched for use with cage nuts. The total interior space is 12U, which is approximately 21” high.

The IR26 has lockable front and rear doors for protection from the elements and includes lift and turn compression latches. The front door of the rack enclosure includes a polycarbonate window.

JT Spangler, Owner and President of ITSENCLOSURES, understands the utter importance of enclosures in dusty, dirty manufacturing facilities, “If you are going to deploy expensive rack mountable equipment in a factory environment, vital electronics should be housed inside of a tough, NEMA rated rack enclosure. If the electronics are exposed to harmful elements, then they will most likely fail and cause serious and costly downtime. Our IR26 will keep powerful tools up and running for many years to come.”

IR26 rack enclosure itsenclosures icestation desktop enclosureThe NEMA 12 IR26 rack enclosure protects against dirt, dust, splashing fluids, grease, lint, and destructive fibers in the air.

To easily route cables and wires, a dust-tight, water-tight Roxtec cable entry gland can be installed on the rear or sides of the unit. Additional accessories available, include a 10-foot power cord to run electricity into the inside of the box, a 6-outlet surge protector, rack mountable shelving, and a solid front door.

For thermal management, a filtered fan system will create positive pressure on the inside of the rack enclosure and prevent any harmful dust and dirt from entering the cabinet. For cooler environments, a thermostatically controlled heater can be added to maintain a desired temperature.

For additional flexibility, the IR26 can be installed on an adjustable stationary pedestal or an adjustable mobile pedestal.

“Our creative team is constantly working on generating rack enclosure solutions and accessories to meet the demand of the ever-changing industrial sector. We strive to design products that will protect distinct types and sizes of electronics in areas where electronics would not otherwise survive,” added Mr. Spangler.

ITSENCLOSURES manufactures the most durable electronics enclosures on the market and ships every product completely assembled and ready to use upon delivery. Every product is designed and fabricated in Western Pennsylvania, outside of Pittsburgh.

The sliding shelf can be adjusted vertically and will support barcode printers weighing up to 80 pounds. The shelf has an adjustable depth bracket to keep the printer in position.

The rear of the enclosure features a 10-foot power cord and a mini-split panel built into the door. To route multiple cables and wires, the Roxtec cable entry gland accessory can be added to the enclosure door or sides of the enclosure.

This printer enclosure can also be used for many desktop laser printers by installing an optional ‘access hinged printer door’ on the top of the unit to retrieve 8½” x 11” sheets of paper.

JT Spangler, Owner and President of ITSENCLOSURES, is thrilled to introduce another printer box enclosure, “Over the past few years, we have had enormous success with our printer enclosure line. The PB26, which is larger than our popular PB20 printer enclosure, provides customers with an alternative option for printer protection in a dirty plant or factory. We believe that this enclosure will have a significant impact on the thermal barcode printer industry.”

Based on a customer’s printing applications, ITSENCLOSURES are available with NEMA 12 or NEMA 4X ratings. The NEMA 12 IceStation printer boxes protect against dirt, dust, splashing fluids, grease, lint, and damaging fibers in the air. The NEMA 4X enclosure is ideal for wash down applications in the food processing and pharmaceutical industries. Numerous accessories are available for the PB26 printer box enclosure. The most popular accessory is the filtered fan system which creates positive pressure on the inside of the enclosure and prevents dust and dirt entry at the label access slot.  A stationary or mobile pedestal is also available at varying heights. A hinged printer door that maintains a seal – until opened – allows an operator to retrieve labels quickly and efficiently. For freezer or cooler environments, a thermostatically controlled heater can be added to maintain temperatures.

“Our goal is to introduce various new products this year and we are happy to offer our customers multiple off-the-shelf solutions, which can ship out in only a couple days,” added Mr. Spangler.

ITSENCLOSURES Introduces TITAN Dual Monitor Enclosure

Mt. Pleasant, PA (November 27, 2017) – A leader in the industrial enclosure market, ITSENCLOSURES engineers and builds the most durable, high-quality computer enclosures on the market. ITSENCLOSURES continues to add new products to the best-selling IceStation TITAN Family with the introduction of the TITAN dual monitor enclosure. The NEMA 12 dual monitor enclosure protects against dust, dirt, grease, fibers in the air, and splashing fluids.

Designed specifically to house two 27” widescreen monitors side by side, the dual monitor (ID21542-12) enclosure body is constructed out of heavy-duty 14-gauge welded steel and 12-gauge door thickness. The enclosure stands at 21” high x 54” wide x 12” deep and the finish is a polyester powder paint available in blue, gray, or any custom color found on the RAL color chart.

The large 13.45” high x 49” wide viewing window is hinged at the bottom and easily folds down to accept two (up to 27-inch) 16×9 wide screen monitors in landscape orientation. For stress-free installation, adjustable VESA mounts are included. Utilizing OEM stands, the displays can also be placed on the flat surface below the mount. A removable rear plate (15” high x 29.5” wide) makes it easy to quickly install the suitable monitors. Customers have a choice between a tempered safety glass or a polycarbonate viewing window.

icestation itsenclosures titan dual monitor enclosure desktop or wall mounted computer enclosure“In 2017, ITSENCLOSURES introduced two new enclosures to the popular and versatile TITAN family of pc enclosures,” said JT Spangler, President of ITSENCLOSURES. “The innovative dual monitor enclosure derived from the IceStation TITAN Hammerhead enclosure. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the Hammerhead enclosure, it was a natural progression for ITS to modify this product for customers that did not require the full freestanding enclosure.” Spangler continued, “The dual monitor enclosure is ideal for space saving applications, because the enclosure can sit on a desk or mount to the wall. We are extremely pleased with how this rugged product came together and are excited to formally introduce it to our customers. ”

Thermal management options, available for the dual monitor enclosure, include a filtered fan system and vortex cooling unit. Either thermal management system will keep the equipment running smoothly in mission critical environments.

“ITSENCLOSURES plans to introduce new products to the market in 2018, including a new line of label printer enclosures,” added Mr. Spangler. “Our business model has always been to protect electronics in any environment, in turn helping companies realize the maximum life cycle of their equipment.”

chefette outdoor digital menu boards viewstation itsenclosures

Chefette, Barbados Restaurant, Installs Digital Signage Menus

chefette outdoor digital menu boards viewstation itsenclosures
Mt. Pleasant, PA (September 29, 2017)
 – As ITSENCLOSURES continues to fabricate and deploy digital signage throughout the United States and abroad, a returning customer, Chefette Restaurants, recently added more outdoor digital signage menu to its chain of quick service restaurants.

Originally founded in 1972, Chefette Restaurants, the largest quick service restaurant in the Caribbean island nation of Barbados, operates 15 locations across the island of Barbados and employs over 850 people. Chefette deployed its first round of digital signage in the first quarter of 2013 at 10 drive-thru locations. The deployment included indoor and outdoor digital signage in portrait orientation and consisted of a mix of triple screen outdoor menu boards and single display pre-sale digital boards, both with 46-inch high-bright monitors. Because of the heat (average temperature is 80° F) and humidity that exists on the island, the outdoor LCD enclosures required air-conditioners installed on the rear of each unit.

The grand opening of Chefette’s brand-new location in Lancaster was September 15th, 2017. The company’s website noted “Chefette’s newest branch is located in Lancaster, St. James, just off Highway 2A. This beautiful facility expands upon the modern designs seen at our Warrens and Welches branches and features a drive-thru, Double MEGA 3-Story Playground and ice cream parlor.” According to the news article, ‘Barbados needs Chefette now more than ever,’ the new location “sits on over 8,000 square feet of land, can seat about 170 people and offers parking space for about 40 vehicles.”

Chefette’s Lancaster storchefette quick service restaurant digital signage viewstation itsenclosurese deployed a single and triple screen digital signage menu board paired with 47-inch high bright monitors. Utilizing the latest technology, ITSENCLOSURES’ fan cooled digital menu boards boast a 66% energy consumption reduction, compared to the compressor based enclosures originally installed in 2013.  Each enclosure is branded with the company’s logo and powder coated in the company’s signature color purple. Since the original deployment in 2013, ITSENCLOSURES’ new generation of outdoor digital menu boards are thinner, sleeker, and more energy efficient. To reduce  frequent enclosure maintenance, the menu boards employ a hydrophobic air filter to keep out dust and dirt, and only need to be replaced every 3-5 years. Chefette also installed commercial grade 48-inch monitors indoors to serve as menu boards and promotional tools.

“Chefette has been a loyal digital signage customer for years and we are proud to have our outdoor digital menu boards at the chain’s drive-thrus, including the new Chefette store in Lancaster,” said J.T. Spangler, President and Owner of ITSENCLOSURES. “The new location looks inviting and modern. Chefette does an excellent job with the architectural design and feel of each location. ITSENCLOSURES is proud to be the exclusive provider of digital menu boards to Chefette. We look forward to working with them on future projects!”

ITSENCLOSURES designs and builds the most heavy-duty enclosures on the market and ships every product completely assembled and ready to use upon delivery.

ITSENCLOSURES Adds More Digital Signage at OSU

Mt. Pleasant, Pa (August 30, 2017) – With a proven digital track record for over a decade, ITSENCLOSURES continues to deploy outdoor digital signage across the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean. The most recent installation occurred, this month, at Ohio Stadium, the home of the Ohio State Buckeyes.

The project took approximately 8 months from start to finish. In December of 2016, The Ohio State University (OSU), located in Columbus, Ohio, contacted ITSENCLOSURES regarding a potential new project for the university’s football stadium. OSU received the necessary funding for the digital signage project in the first quarter of 2017. With competition from two other enclosure manufacturers, ITSENCLOSURES won the business and secured the project based on cost, enclosure quality, and a previous successful relationship.

The digital signage project consisted of 28 passively cooled/vented ViewStation LCD enclosures that house 79-inch monitors. The majority (26) of the enclosures are mounted back-to-back on an I-beam to display game statistics in real time. Two additional enclosures are mounted to the wall. With the 28 recently installed enclosures, Ohio State University now has over 200 ITSENCLOSURES’ LCD enclosures mounted throughout the football stadium.

viewstation ohio state outdoor digital signage itsenclosures

Before the units were fabricated, ITSENCLOSURES’ engineering team worked hand and hand with OSU to provide the necessary weights and loads of the enclosures. This data was needed to apply for the permits to install the lcd enclosures, in the stadium, prior to the 2017 football season. For fan protection and as a precaution against vibration, OSU installed safety chains attached to the I-beams for the dual-sided enclosures.

With football season right around the corner, the enclosures were installed the second week of August 2017. The first home game will take place on Saturday, September 9th against the Oklahoma Sooners.

JT Spangler, the President and Owner of ITSENCLOSURES, said, “We love having our company’s enclosures installed at such a storied and respected football venue. The home of the OSU Buckeyes is one of the largest football stadiums in America. It is very humbling to know that our digital signage enclosures will be seen by over a hundred thousand football fans on Saturday’s this Fall. Our team could not be prouder with this particular enclosure project. It shows how ITSENCLOSURES and The Ohio State University can come together to engineer and fabricate a quality product that will endure for many, many seasons to come.”

The durable enclosures are shielded from any direct weather exposure, so ITSENCLOSURES was able to provide a vented LCD enclosure solution. The enclosure window is constructed out of an anti-glare, polycarbonate material.

The new digital signage screens replaced old, static game boards that displayed statistics for the fans.

Mr. Spangler continued, “Over the past few years, we have installed digital signage at various locations across Columbus, Ohio, and we are excited to continue our relationship with Ohio State University. Repeat customers know that they will be receiving heavy-duty enclosures that will protect the sensitive electronics that are housed inside.”

According to OhioStateBuckeyes.com, “Ohio Stadium is the fourth largest on-campus facility in the nation. Since the opening game against Ohio Wesleyan on October 7, 1922, more than 36 million fans have streamed through the stadium’s portals. Ohio Stadium is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places.”

During the football season, ITSENCLOSURES plans on following up with Ohio State to retrieve first-hand reaction from fans about the new signage.

ITSENCLOSURES Deploys Digital Signage at ‘Backyard Taco’

Mt. Pleasant, PA (July 31, 2017) – With over 10 years of outdoor LCD enclosure experience, ITSENCLOSURES continues to proudly deploy outdoor digital signage menu boards at many well-known quick service restaurants (QSRs) throughout America, Canada, and the Caribbean. Backyard Taco, located in Gilbert, Arizona, is the latest quick service restaurant to install ITSENCLOSURES’ innovative ViewStation QSR three screen digital menu board. According to the Backyard Taco website, the family owned restaurant strives to make the most delicious tacos with the best ingredients, “Our recipe for success is always fresh ingredients and our mesquite grill. It’s a combo that gives us the authentic taste of Tacos al Carbon. We keep our menu simple, because we only offer what we do best.”

backyard taco itsenclosures digital signage drive thru viewstationOpening a new location and wanting it to be state-of-the-art, Backyard Taco contacted ITSENCLOSURES about installing a dynamic, digital signage menu board in the drive-thru. The outdoor digital menu board incorporates three high bright LCDs (2,000 nit) in portrait orientation. Already utilizing digital menu boards on the inside of the restaurant and in portrait orientation too, Backyard Taco was able to use the same menu content on the outside, thus saving time and money for the restaurant.

ITSENCLOSURES solution utilized three 47” monitors and a 6,000 BTU air conditioner to combat the hot, desert weather found in Arizona for most of the calendar year, especially during the Summer months. To provide a water tight seal, the digital signage body (powder coated light brown) is marine grade aluminum and welded aluminum. The large viewing window is laminated glass with anti-reflective coating on both sides, providing 99% light transmission and UV protection. In addition, the front cover is hinged at the top and supported by gas springs for front access to all three displays. A rear door provides access to internal electronics, as well as, power and data entry locations. Specific, heavy-duty gasket is installed around the glass to keep the cool air inside of the digital signage and prevent the enclosure glass from fogging up.

President and Owner of ITSENCLOSURES, JT Spangler, knew that his company was prepared for the Arizona heat, “We installed a number of outdoor digital signage menu boards at another popular quick service restaurant in Arizona during 2011. We are aware of the challenges you need to overcome to combat against the high temperatures and strong sunlight exposure for an outdoor digital menu solution.  Our production team ensured the enclosure configuration will withstand any environment.”

Royal Sign Company, located in Phoenix, Arizona, was hired by Backyard Taco to install the digital signage boards in the drive-thru. ITSENCLOSURES supplied the sign company with directions on how to install the 3×1, including the size of the footer, location of anchor bolts, and running the electric and the Cat 5 cables properly.

Mr. Spangler added, “Our goal is to provide outdoor digital signage menu boards to every quick service restaurant in the United States. The ViewStation QSR product line can withstand harsh weather conditions and continue to shine. The high-bright monitors used in our enclosures can be seen by drive-thru patrons, even in direct sunlight. All in all, digital menu boards are a win-win for the restaurant and the customer.”

ITSENCLOSURES offers a 3-year warranty (with the option of 5 years) on all components of the outdoor digital signage.

ITSENCLOSURES-Introduces-the-Dual-Screen-IceStation-TITAN-Hammerhead-Computer-Enclosure

ITSENCLOSURES Introduces Dual Monitor Computer Enclosure

Mt. Pleasant, PA (April 26, 2017) – For over three decades, ITSENCLOSURES (Integration Technology Systems) has been engineering and fabricating the most heavy-duty computer enclosures on the market. ITSENCLOSURES continues to add to the popular TITAN family with the introduction of  the Hammerhead – the new dual monitor NEMA 12 freestanding computer enclosure. The ‘Hammerhead’ dual monitor enclosure protects against dust, dirt, grease, and splashing fluids.

With the ability to store two 27” widescreen monitors side by side, the TITAN Hammerhead’s (IS615427-12) enclosure body is constructed out of 14-gauge welded steel and 12-gauge door thickness, and stands 61” high x 54” wide (bottom portion is 29.5” wide) x 27” deep. The dual monitor enclosure finish is a polyester powder paint available in blue, gray, or any custom RAL color.

The 49” wide x 13.45” high viewing window is hinged at the bottom and easily folds down to accept two (up to 27-inch) 16×9 widescreen monitors in landscape orientation. Adjustable, VESA mounts are included for easy installation. The displays can also be placed on the flat surface – below the mount – utilizing OEM stands. A removable rear plate (15” high x 29.5” wide) makes it easy to quickly install the suitable monitors. Customers have a choice between a tempered safety glass or a polycarbonate viewing window.

titan dual monitor enclosure hammerhead icestation itsenclosuresThe dual monitor enclosure doors feature lift and turn style key lockable latches and dual durometer EPDM gasket for additional protection against a harsh environment. The lower rear door measures 30.65” high and is ideal for accessing the back of electronics stored in the enclosure. The bottom half of the TITAN provides plenty of space to house a computer, printer, UPS, power supply, and additional important electronics. An adjustable, vented shelf, attached to uni-strut, is also included for placement of electronics.

“ITSENCLOSURES is excited to, once again, introduce another product to the TITAN family of industrial computer enclosures,” said JT Spangler, Owner & President of ITSENCLOSURES. “Customer feedback warranted the Hammerhead product, as manufacturers and system integrators sought a cabinet with the ability to house two monitors within one enclosure. The Hammerhead creates a revolutionary workspace for factory and industrial settings. We are excited to see this product on manufacturing floors across the globe. Every product sold is designed and manufactured with a commitment to quality and satisfaction.”

A sloped work surface, with raised ledge, provides a useful area for important documents, file folders, and writing utensils. Beneath the work surface is a retractable keyboard/mouse drawer. The drawer is lockable and the front folds down to provide an ergonomic wrist rest. When completely extended, the drawer measures 22.7″ wide x 9″ deep x 3.5″ high.

Swivel casters are a standard feature. When the computer enclosure is in its desired location, the front casters lock into place with a foot brake. For areas that require a stationary workstation, bolt down legs can be installed on the enclosure.

Various thermal management options are available for the TITAN Hammerhead, including a filtered fan system, air conditioners (ranging in size from 2,000 – 6,000 BTU), heat exchanger, and vortex cooling unit. If additional airflow is required between the two halves of the Hammerhead, a recirculating fan can be installed in a pre-cut hole below the monitors.

Customize the NEMA 12 enclosure with numerous accessories, including sliding shelf brackets for the vented shelf, waterproof USB connectors for scanning devices, hinged printer door for a barcode printer, 19” wide adjustable rack mount rails, 6 outlet surge protector, 10-foot power cord, and industrial keyboards or hula points.

Always proudly ‘Made in the USA,’ ITSENCLOSURES ships every product completely assembled and ready to use upon delivery at the plant or manufacturing facility!

ITSENCLOSURES-Deploys-Digital-Signage-at-Pennsylvania-Funeral-Home

ITSENCLOSURES Deploys Digital Signage at Funeral Home

Mt. Pleasant, PA (February 28, 2017) – ITSENCLOSURES, a digital signage hardware expert, installed an all-weather, LCD enclosure at the front entrance of The Frank Kapr Funeral Home. The digital signage displays brief obituaries with visiting hours and also announcements/events.

Frank Kapr Funeral Home, located on West Pittsburgh Street in Scottdale, Pennsylvania, has been in operation for over 6 decades. Wanting to take advantage of the flexibility of digital signage to instantly change and revise content, the funeral home installed a consumer grade, residential, HDTV to present obituaries and announcements. The indoor monitor was mounted outdoors on the front porch railing, but was not a ‘high bright,’ commercial monitor. For this reason, it was nearly impossible to see during the day.

frank kapr funeral home viewstation itsenclosures digital signage.jpgFrank Kapr desired to use the digital signage around the clock, and the residential television posed a problem. After struggling to use the current system, the funeral home turned to ITSENCLOSURES for direction on a more robust solution. For over a decade, ITSENCLOSURES has designed and installed outdoor, all-weather lcd enclosures across the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean. Several factors were considered, including the overall display visibility and harsh, Western Pennsylvania weather conditions.

After meeting with ITSENCLOSURES to discuss digital signage options, Frank Kapr chose an enclosure – in portrait orientation – that included a 46” high bright LCD (1,500 nits), and a specific heating and cooling system to allow operation 24/7 in temperatures of -40° to 120°F. To quickly modify content on an hourly or daily basis, a media player is hard-wired to a computer in the funeral home’s main office.

Frank Kapr, Owner of The Frank Kapr Funeral Home, was pleased with his decision to utilize digital signage at his funeral home, “We wanted state-of-the-art signage for our funeral home… something that could be seen from a distance. Our first step was to contact Shannon Roberts, who is the Production Manager at ITSENCLOSURES. He took the time to explain everything clearly to us and helped us make the best decision for our needs.”

After reviewing various locations on the funeral home’s grounds, the enclosure was installed on a cement footer in the flower garden at front of the building and can be seen by those walking or driving past the building. It is surrounded by flowers and greenery, making it an eye-catching addition to the funeral home. Frank Kapr also chose to have the funeral home’s logo silk screened in 3 locations on the enclosure for personal customization and brand awareness.

JT Spangler, Owner and President of ITSENCLOSURES, was proud that his company’s digital signage would be used to honor those that had passed away, “Digital signage is often installed for advertising and promotion, so I was proud to see our product employed in a unique way at the funeral home. The Frank Kapr Funeral Home is a fixture in the town of Scottdale, Pennsylvania, and they give back by using the LCD enclosure to display area events. This is just one more example of how digital signage can be a very versatile product.”

The Frank Kapr Funeral Home has a park on the property, called the Family Gardens, with a soothing waterfall, fountain, and statue. The all-weather LCD enclosure announces musical entertainment in the park. Singers, instrumentalists, and bands are provided free of charge to the public.

Mr. Kapr continued, “We are ecstatic about all that our attractive sign is capable of doing and we are continually finding new things to try with the sign. It is the right size for the exterior of the funeral home and the messages can be read from a distance. We are happy with our investment and every dollar was well spent. Mr. Roberts and ITSENCLOSURES are a wonderful digital partner.”

ITSENCLOSURES-is-Exclusive-Salad-Bar-Kiosk-Provider-for-Jasons-Deli

ITSENCLOSURES is Exclusive Salad Bar Kiosk Provider for Jason’s Deli

Mt. Pleasant, PA (February 7, 2017) – In 2013, ITSENCLOSURES began deploying salad bar ordering kiosks at Jason’s Deli restaurants across the country. The stand is designed around Jason’s Deli’s existing ‘Point of Sale’ system and provides ease of use for customers to order a salad with all of the fixings, various drinks, and hot soup. Jason’s Deli, a gourmet sandwich shop with wholesome ingredients and a large salad bar, serves fresh and hearty food in over 260 delis in 29 states.

In the summer of 2013, Jason’s Deli contacted ITSENCLOSURES to discuss the design and fabrication of a one-of-a-kind unit, for the company’s popular salad bar, to house the restaurant’s point of sale terminal and small receipt printer.

ITSENCLOSURES developed a custom freestanding kiosk that features a sliding shelf for the printer and lockable front door for additional security. Jason’s Deli purchased a prototype for evaluation. After the initial installation was implemented successfully, Jason’s Deli began deploying units in restaurants across America.

jasons deli salad bar kiosk by ITSENCLOSURES“Jason’s Deli is one of our many success stories. ITSENCLOSURES’ engineering team always produces products that are both functional and protective. LCD enclosure products can be custom engineered for any customer’s unique needs. We pride ourselves on our knowledge of enclosure design and will continue to innovate with our solutions,” said JT Spangler, President of ITSENCLOSURES.

The POS (point of sale) system, mounted on the front of the stand, features a touchscreen display, credit card reader and a receipt printer, enabling customers to pay right through the point of sale system. Customers have the ability to order salad, soups, drinks, and other healthy food items.

Madison Boozer, Media Relations Manager at Jason’s Deli, stated, “The salad bar is our most popular menu option. Because the guest picks up a plate and makes their own salad, there are no modifications available on this entrée, which makes it easy to order with the touch of a button. Adding the kiosk to the salad bar was helpful to the customer and sped up the order process for customers during the lunch and dinner rush.” Boozer continued, “The kiosk allows guests – who would like the salad bar – to skip the line, letting them enjoy their meal at their own pace.”

The stands are installed at Jason’s Deli restaurants throughout the United States (15 states to date), including locations in Chicago, IL, Omaha, NE, Cranberry Township, PA, Jacksonville, FL, Austin, TX, and Hampton, VA. In all, ITSENCLOSURES has deployed the system to over 70 locations and this list continues to grow. Jason’s Deli plans to install additional units at new store builds and remodels opening in 2017 and beyond.

ITSENCLOSURES designs and builds the most durable electronic enclosures on the market and ships every one of its products completely assembled and ready to use upon delivery.
