Product of the Week: Drawer fridge for cool-keeping and accessibility
Mon, 16 Sep 2013
Tired of having to turn upside down to reach that special bottle at the very bottom of your super efficient sailing boat refrigerator? Now Dometic Marine WAECO have come up with a new cool 'CoolMatic CRD-50 Drawer Fridge' with a freezer compartment.
The new, spacious drawer fridge gives boat owners convenient slide-out access to your refreshments, yet without wasting power by expelling all the cool air in the manner of a vertical fridge-door action.
Everything is neatly arranged in rows, providing a convenient way of keeping track of on-board provisions. Wine and water, snacks and sweets are placed ready to hand in the first row where holding brackets in the wire brackets ensure they are fully secure, even in heavy seas.
The integrated two-star freezer compartment of the new CoolMatic CRD-50 is easily detached to make room for wine or cool refreshments. The elegant front surface with its brushed stainless-steel finish adds to the high quality appearance of the smart drawer fridge.
The CRD-50 provides a gross capacity of 50 litres, including four litres for the freezer compartment. A sturdy pull-out mechanism guarantees smooth operation at all times.
With the matching installation frame, the WAECO CoolMatic CRD-50 drawer fridge is easy to install and comes ready for connection to 12 and 24 volts – for use below or above decks, depending on the boat you are sailing.
It is also designed for a temperature range between +10 and -15°C and consumes very little energy. Its power input is a mere 40 watts.
Moreover, the cool cruise companion offers some practical technical features, including reliable low-voltage and reverse-polarity protection and a fully hermetic compressor with integrated control electronics. The unit is TÜV/GS-approved, CE- and e-certified, which guarantees utmost safety on-board.
