July 2016 – Fisher & Paykel, a global design innovator and manufacturer of indoor and outdoor home appliances, and DCS, the pioneer of professional kitchen equipment, are pleased to announce the addition of an Integrated Bottom Freezer Refrigerator to their lineup.

The new family sized, integrated bottom freezer, which comes in popular 84” and 80” sizes, features a large 36” door. These models can even be placed side by side for a seamless solution to meet the need for maximum storage.

“The Bottom Freezer integrated refrigerator complements the other Fisher & Paykel and DCS appliances that we currently offer, providing our customers with comprehensive design solutions,” explains Roger Bridge, General Manager of Marketing for Fisher & Paykel. “Additionally, the bottom freezer model and the integrated refrigerator line as a whole is attainable, allowing our customers the ability to upgrade from traditional free­standing refrigerators at an excellent price point.”

Just like the French Door integrated refrigerator, the new model allows seamless integration with minimal gaps around the cabinetry and a flush fit. Additionally, it can be customized to integrate with new or existing cabinetry, or integrate via a stainless steel door panel set (sold separately). The door panels allow multiple angles of adjustment, and four feet can be adjusted from the front to accommodate uneven floors. The adjustable door panels also allow for precision fine tuning, as the cabinets settle after installation.

With these additions, the integrated refrigeration line for both Fisher & Paykel and DCS Includes:
●    French Door
○    Available with ice only and with ice and water.
○    72", 80" and 84" installation option
○    Panel ready and stainless steel door options
●    Bottom Freezer
○    Available with ice only and with ice and water.
○    80" and 84" installation options
○    Panel ready and stainless steel door options

The integrated refrigerators feature traditional Fisher & Paykel and DCS design experiences, including:

●    ActiveSmart™ Foodcare which helps keep food fresher longer.
●    Flexible internal storage, such as split shelving, deep-shelf designs, slide-out bins and room for gallon storage in the doors.
●    SmartTouch controls, which streamline food organization to suit lifestyles
●    Automatic ice making
●    External water dispensing, which takes up no usable capacity and is available in the optional stainless steel door panel set only.
