WHAT’S COOL!® New Product Gallery during the NAFEM Show, February 9-11, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The WHAT’S HOT!

Nor-Lake’s Keg Management System (KMS) combines a custom walk-in cooler with a built-in hoist to lift beer kegs providing the ideal solution for keg lifting and storage in bars, craft breweries, nightclubs and many other applications. The system is designed to reduce the risk of work related back injuries by providing a safe solution to prevent employees from manually lifting and handling kegs. The KMS integrates a track system with an electric hoist into the walk-in infrastructure; this hoist is designed to lift and stack kegs anywhere within the beer cooler making it easy for one person to safely move kegs to any point inside the walk-in structure.
The KMS is designed to optimize keg storage footprint and organize keg rotation while providing convenient solutions to common problems associated with traditional keg storage systems. The system’s integrated cantilever shelving for storage eliminates obstructions on the walk-in floor allowing for additional keg storage.
The KMS is fully configurable to fit any size walk-in and available with a number of additional options designed to meet the needs of each customer. The optional LED lighting strip can be mounted to the bottom of the shelving system making it easier to see and tap lower kegs. The system is available with an optional digital scale designed to take the estimation out of calculating partial kegs for precise inventory control. The optional heavy-duty handle assembly provides added convenience for lifting and moving kegs. Nor-Lake’s KMS integrated walk-in ships from the factory with all the necessary components, reducing installation costs.
