Provide Your Patrons with Ice Using a Commercial Ice Machine, Perfect for Large and Small Businesses Alike
Commercial ice machines are designed to provide ice for a variety of applications and businesses. Hotels, hospitals, schools, businesses, bars, and restaurants are just a few of the venues benefitting from commercial ice machine use.
Self-contained ice machines require ice to be scooped out and have both ice production and ice storage capacities. Modular ice machines only produce ice and need a separate ice bin for storage. There are also ice dispensers, which are designed to dispense the ice directly into a cup or other receptacle. Some ice dispensers also dispense water.
Available with production capacities from over 80 to over 1,000 lbs. of ice per day, there is an ice machine perfect for any size business or venue. Undercounter self-contained ice machines are great for smaller applications, like office break rooms or luxury suites, while modular units are perfect for large scale use in restaurants, school cafeterias, or other foodservice industry needs. Hands-free dispense pearl ice machines are designed specifically with healthcare applications in mind.
Another factor to consider other than production needed is the type of ice you would like your commercial ice machine to produce. There are many types of ice varying in size and softness. Clear, cubed ice is a common type for large-scale foodservice needs. A popular ice type offered by Ice-O-Matic ice machines is pearl ice, which is much like the soft, chewable, nugget ice provided at your local Sonic. Pearl ice is a popular option for home, office break room, small business, and luxury suite applications. Both pearl and flake ice, which are both soft and chewable, are imperative in the healthcare industry. Gourmet ice machines are ideal for bars, restaurants, and luxury suites that specialize in cocktail service.
Whether your business is large or small, consider providing your patrons with clear, delicious ice by using a commercial ice machine.

General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
