Double Decker

The Double Decker series is one of our most popular live seafood merchandising systems among high volume locations. The Double Decker Series will hold almost any kind of live seafood including live Fish, Lobster and/or Crab and Shellfish. With the included acrylic dividers multiple species can be held in the same tank offering a smorgasbord of live fresh seafood. The Double Decker series is a popular choice for grocery chains, markets and high volume restaurants as this series is multifunctional, has high holding capacities and has a very appealing look.

One of the best features of the Double Decker series is the filtration system design. Water flows over the stand pipe and down into a filter bag (trapping large solids) which is filled with carbon, before penetrating a finer mesh filter pad, then passing through a bed of dolomite (providing buffering and surface area as the biological filter). A reliable water pump then pushes the water through a cartridge filter, Ultraviolet Sterilizer (protects against algae, protozoans and harmful bacteria) and chiller before returning the water to the tank via a venturi (adds oxygen).

Another functional feature of the Double Decker is the fact that it has two independent filtration systems already built in. This allows for many different live stock combinations as product is separated by tank, filtration and temperature. Potential combinations include: Live Fish/Lobster, Lobster and Crab/Shellfish, Live Fish/Shellfish, etc.

The filter systems are easy to maintain and allow for easy access to all components without ever having to remove the live stock just to work on the filter.

In addition to great filtration systems, the Double Decker Series looks as good as it functions. The bold look of 316 Stainless Steel top and bottom rails, thermal pane glass (prevents condensation), translucent lids, twin tanks and insulated cabinet finishes in Stainless Steel, laminate or veneer.
