FLAT equalizers wins Kitchen Innovations 2018 Award

The award was presented by the National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show.

Within less than a year of launching FLAT Equalizers to the market, FLAT Tech has already earned one of the most prestigious awards conferred by the foodservice industry.

The Kitchen Innovation 2018 Award is presented each year to those manufacturers that have developed and engineered a new product that has the potential to make a meaningful impact on a restaurateur’s success. The award winners undergo an intensive vetting process over a 6-month period conducted by a panel of nine judges that represent some of the industry’s most well respected brands and organisations.

FLAT Tech will also host a booth within the Kitchen Innovations pavilion at this year’s National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show, to be held in Chicago, Illinois, May 19-22, 2018. This space will be in addition to FLAT Tech’s full product booth at the NRA Show, #4184.

“We’re delighted to have been presented with one of the most prestigious awards in the foodservice industry,” says Mike Drake, FLAT Tech’s managing director. “Having Equalizers recognised at this level is a tremendous achievement. Our other main product line, the self-stabilising FLAT table bases, has also won multiple awards in the industry for design and innovation. Both products reinforce FLAT’s position as a leading innovator and authority on creating the best dining experience for your guests.”

FLAT Equalizers allow foodservice owners and operators to fix instability in their existing tables. Equalizers use a self-contained hydraulic design that allows the table to be quickly adjusted with a simple press of the tabletop, then the feet “lock” into position to create a rock-solid table base. FLAT Equalizers can also be adjusted by lifting or tilting the tabletop, to facilitate the alignment of adjoining tables—a unique feature to FLAT products.
