SIRA-SERV: Nylon-based catering and food service solution for lining vats, saucepans, pots and chafing dishes

Catering liners made from nylon

A RANGE of innovative time, labour and cost-saving nylon products aimed at catering, hospitality and food service industries are available from Sirane.

Sirane's Sira-Serv™ range includes nylon-based materials for lining vats, saucepans, pots and chafing dishes, with a wide range of sizes and options. We also have materials for hot-fill, hot shortening bags for cooking oil disposal and absorbent liners for hot food counters.

Jeremy Haydn-Davies, sales director, said: “Nylon is a fantastic material with which to line catering pans, pots, chafing dishes and trays – and it is very cost-effective. This is the sort of solution that once you’ve tried, you just won’t ever go back to doing without.

“We’ve sized them to fit standard Gastronorm sizes, and they offer numerous benefits: they will reduce cleaning time; reduce wear and tear; help reduce bills associated with hot water; and even help reduce the amount of fats and grease entering drains.

“Catering liners also help reduce food wastage – saving companies money – as the food won’t dry out and congeal at the bottom of the pan. This can be very beneficial in hotel breakfasts, for example, where food is sometimes kept warm for a while.”

Nylon has some tremendous qualities, which make it perfect for this kind of use; it is tough, durable, with very high heat resistance, and it can also be used in hot-fill situations.

Nylon hot-shortening bags – which can be filled with hot cooking oil and used for disposal – and nylon hot-fill liners are also in the range. Hot-fill liners can be used in industrial food processing to line large vats, and can be removed while the product is hot.

“Hot fill liners,” said Simon Balderson, MD, “can save companies money. There is no production time wasted waiting for products to cool, or scrubbing the vats after use.

“Nylon is an incredibly clean material, so there is no leaching/contamination. This level of cleanliness means it can also be used in processes such as roasting spices/bread crumbs.”

Another popular Sirane product – the rotisserie liner – is also part of the Sira-Serv range. These absorbent liners can also be used to line hot-food display counters.

Consisting of a highly absorbent material covered with heat-reflective elevated-temperature-resistant film, Sira-Serv™ Supreme™ rotisserie liners soak away excess fat dripping from the meat while it is cooking – ensuring it is displayed in an attractive way as possible.
