North Star combines its ice storage systems with ice makers and delivery systems in a custom design to meet your specific ice production, storage and delivery requirements. At the heart of the system is North Star’s patented ice rake. The rake levels ice in the storage bin to maximize storage space and automatically discharges it when it is needed. North Star ice rakes have long been proven the most efficient and dependable way to handle ice.
