Chicago Metallic Bakeware unveiled its new StayFlat Full-Size Sheet Pan with National Safety Foundation certification, saying it is the only full-size sheet pan to provide the strength of a completely enclosed pan rim that meets the requirements of the NSF stamp.

The company says the new pan provides bakeries, restaurants and foodservice operations with sanitation and food safety advantages that were previously only possible form much more expensive sheet pans with open-rim designs and without reinforcing wires.

The sheet pans are constructed of 16 or 18 gauge aluminum with a high-strength steel band completely enclosed within the rim. A slight horizontal ridge in its sidewalls was engineered to increase perimeter strength by up to 30 percent over standard sheet pans.
