The R & D team at SKOPE have been hard at work behind the scenes for the last 18 months or so putting together a revolutionary new refrigeration range for the retail hospitality sector.


We’ve called it ActiveCore and it combines the best energy saving technology on the market, with a number of innovative features designed to deliver optimal performance, efficiency and reliability.

Before starting on this design and engineering project, we spent a lot of time with our customers listening to what matters most to them. Top of the list – as you might expect, was the need to avoid or eliminate downtime or wastage to a business when a refrigeration unit or chiller fails.

We understand the last thing you need on your hands is product wastage, or a repairman in the middle of your cafe or shop trying to fix the problem onsite.

The wishlist also included a desire for quieter fridges that are less obtrusive in a hospitality environment, shelving that’s easy to move and adjust to fit different bottle and product heights, slick modern design and branding opportunities, maximum performance to quickly chill down products and keep them at the optimum temperature – especially when it’s hot outside, and energy efficiency that actually makes a difference to your power bills.

We’ve done it all with the new ActiveCore chiller range.

We are confident that the new ActiveCore products will meet the needs of our customers for many years to come – just as our existing technology has effectively stood the test of time.

Interchangeable ActiveCore Unit

Perhaps the most innovative aspect of this new range is the invention of the ActiveCore unit which is the heart of each chiller.

What makes it so unique?

ActiveCore Unit The ActiveCore unit in each chiller can be quickly and easily removed for maintenance or swapped out for another unit. No more waiting for repairs to be completed, no wastage of food, no disruption to your business.

Energy Efficiency that makes a difference


ActiveCore will deliver improved cooling performance, optimised airflow and redesigned components to ensure optimal performance and energy efficiency for years to come.

We’ve done the maths on how much replacing your existing chiller with one of the new ActiveCore chillers can save you in energy costs alone, and you are looking at a 35% – 55% saving in power consumption for a top mounted or bottom mounted chiller.>

Your power bill (per fridge) can go from $1,125 per year to just $509 per year – that’s a saving of more than $6,000 over 10 years.

And yes, we are confident that your ActiveCore chiller will still be working hard in your business after 10 years, just like previous SKOPE products, which are still working hard for their owners.
