Frequently Asked Questions About Undercounter Refrigerators and Freezers
What size refrigerator or freezer will fit under a countertop?
Standard commercial countertops have a height of 36". Commercial undercounter refrigerators/freezers are designed to fit under this space with enough clearance for air flow. Choosing the right width will depend on your commercial kitchen's specific space. There are some approximate measurements based on number of sections for undercounter refrigerators/freezers:
- Single section - 26" - 37"
- Two sections - 48" - 60"
- Three sections - 72" - 94"
- Four sections - 111" - 119"
What type of interior lining should I choose?
There are several standard options for interior materials for undercounter refrigerators/freezers. Each option provides different benefits.
- ABS - This material is advertised as resistant to dents, chips, and rust. ABS can be a great option since it's thermoformed as one piece, leaving no room to bacteria to develop in corners or edges.
- Stainless steel - This interior material is incredibly durable and unlikely to rust. Corner covers will be necessary to fully prevent spills from getting into seams if not immediately removed.
- Aluminum - This material is the most economical and like stainless steel, won't rust. Aluminum is often less durable than stainless steel, but units with this interior lining will often feature stainless steel floors for added durability.
How do I install an undercounter refrigerator or freezer?
One of the main benefits of an undercounter refrigerator or freezer is the incredible mobility of the unit. Their smaller profile makes it easier to get this refrigeration unit into your restaurant, bar, or café. Refer to each model's spec sheet to ensure no further steps need to be taken, but many models can be placed, plugged in, and begin to be used as simply as that.
