We have combined a more rounded approach with a practical design and added
trim and features to make this truly ahead of the pack., from the hand
finished hardwood trim to give that extra touch of class to a modern streamlined
art deco body profile and more, this is a very well thought out and executed
espresso cart design that simply stands alone. They are also designed to
accommodate local codes both indoors and out while keeping the dimensions
down to a manageable level when it comes to navigating through tight areas.
When you are on location with the
Espresso Cart, you are making a presence, this cart just speaks out
for itself in quality and aesthetic appeal. From an operators point
of view, nothing is better then utter simplicity, the learning curve is
very small and extensive operations manuals are unnecessary, all elements
are common sense and replacement parts are easy to find , the slide out
sink area also doubles as extra work area while remaining light and simple
to use without dragging out the entire plumbing compartment with it.
All fittings are quick disconnects to ease changing out fresh and waste
Additional features not listed at
the spec sheet are detailed
We use only 3M commercial grade water
based contact cement to secure the laminated surfaces. Being water
based eliminates toxic fumes during construction and the water itself,
once purged from the compound through drying is repelled afterwards making
this yet another layer of moisture resistance. You will not find
this contact cement for sale for public use due to it's shear longevity
and integrity in nature.
All end work i.e.. door
edges, dividers are t-molded to make them safer when bumped up against
as well as adding a degree of trim.
The 1" by 2" aluminum tubing
is 1/8" thick stock, the exposed area is brushed finished to create a glimmering,
textured surface. Unlike other aluminum construction, there is no
need to touch it up with paint, there is no powder coat to chip away and
under the most extreme circumstance where it's physically marred, it can
individually be replaced or touched up with a piece of sandpaper.
We use primarily 3/8" food grade
nsf nylon braided lines for the fresh water system and 3/4" flex pipe for
the waste water.
The fresh water system:
Each clamp is strategically placed
to maximize the barbs within the fittings themselves to insure the maximum
snug fit reducing leak liability. We use specialized clamps that
can easily be removed and replaced with the traditional "worm gear"
clamp to allow expansion.
The Waste water system.
Using flexible lines eases changing
the waste tank more easily, this is also integrated with easy to use garden
hose quick disconnect fittings. The drain is hooked up to a specialized
Ball type P-Trap keeping that area self contained in a compact unit.
The 2.5 gallon GE water heater is
removable for ease of maintenance, it also has it's own adjustable thermostat
as well as carries it's own 6 year warrantee.
Positioning the castors
based upon the weight load distributes the load more efficiently, not being
tied to an aluminum extrusion and/or prefabbed system allows us to do this.
This combined with the larger surface / circumference of the 6" by 2" castors
makes even the heaviest loads very easy to handle to a point that will
amaze most first time users and you'll agree after moving one around no
matter how loaded up, that this is a very highly mobile, easy to maneuver
Structural integrity is paramount:
We've built a system that
eliminates all flex. Take a look at other espresso carts being rolled
in and out of their retail locations, you'll notice the doors as well as
the cart itself bend and twist, you can do this visually without having
to use a micrometer, this shows weakness that eventually will contribute
to the final breaking down of the very structure of the cart itself.
I'm sure you have read about "touching up", "tightening up" and or general
cart maintenance to insure your serving area stays on the ground.
We have designed a "non loosening" not dependent upon welds system.
It's primarily a combination of common sense, analyzing past data as well
as looking into other areas of construction all together.
been committed to manufacturing everything to the utmost in integrity,
taking extra time out for even the smallest details. All construction
is built individually, custom tailored to the clients needs.
