There’s nothing worse than being trapped in a hot office, and especially so if that office has a lack of airflow. The solution to this problem is air conditioning, but you’ve got to also consider the needs of your workers – to this end, cool water and ice are excellent ways to boost morale during the hotter months and to keep everybody sane.
With that in mind, here’s some superb ice machines to consider for your business.
VonShef Digital Ice Maker and Dispenser
The VonShef Digital Ice Maker and Dispenser (Amazon, £109.99) is ideal for the office or the factory floor. It can make up to 800g of ice at a time (up to 15kg in 24-hours) and has a 1-litre water reservoir, so you don’t have to keep refilling it. Ice can be made in three sizes and a neat digital LCD display offers ease of use and maximum control.
Andrew James Compact Ice Maker
The Andrew James Compact Ice Maker (Amazon, £89.99) is smaller than the VonShef but equally as powerful. It too can create up to 15kg of ice in 24-hours and it also has a large water reservoir (2.4-litres). Ice can only be made in two sizes, but at this price who’s complaining. This is one of the smallest ice makers on the market so it’s ideal for compact spaces.
Porkka Ice Machines
Porkka ice machines (ACL Refrigeration, £TBA) can make up to a whopping 600 kilos of ice everyday and 20 kilos of ice on a single cycle. Ideal for larger applications such as in bars, cafes, restaurants or catering facilities, these ice machines are extremely powerful and can serve a workforce of over one hundred people with ease.

Often, space is the limiting factor, in which case the good news is that there are a wide variety of ice machines on the market and chances are there will be at least a few which are of the right size. For office floors, compact ice makers are an ideal solution, but for larger areas of work a commercial ice machine is going to be better for your business – these can produce a lot more ice and are an essential appliance for catering facilities.
