MORE TEMPERATURE ZONES THAN ANY OTHER HOME REFRIGERATOR
Perlick column refrigerators feature four independently-controlled temperature zones. These "micro-zones" can each hold different temperatures within 1°F of set point and have dedicated air filtration and humidity control to best preserve a variety of fresh foods. Learn more about QuatroCool™ here.
A MORE INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO PRODUCE STORAGE
The crisper drawer in most refrigerators is anything but innovative. In fact, their design was patented in the 1950's, subscribing to the theory that trapping moisture in the drawer keeps wilt-prone produce, such as lettuce, crisper for longer.
THE PROBLEM? Every time you open the drawer to retrieve product, that trapped moisture escapes.
THE PERLICK SOLUTION Perlick doesn't rely on the moisture content of the produce (or a plastic slider) to keep contents fresh. The humidity in the tip-out produce bin is electronically monitored. When moisture levels drop below the user setting, the unit will automatically introduce moisture into the air stream to keep the compartment humid. The result? Leafy greens stay fresh up to 30% longer than if stored in a traditional crisper drawers.
A HIGHER DEGREE OF CRAFTSMANSHIP AND QUALITY CONSTRUCTION
All Perlick products feature commercial-grade construction and materials. All products meet the strict standards of the bars, restaurants and large venues we serve, providing homeowners with a product that will last for many years to come. All brushed and black stainless steel and glass construction provides a stunning backdrop for fresh foods - a look and feel that cannot be replicated by plastic and acrylic.
DESIGNED FOR A LIFETIME OF USE
Perlick developed a unique refrigeration deck that is both removable and replaceable. In the event that service is required, the refrigeration deck can be slid out and replaced with a brand new deck. This means that the unit does not have to be uninstalled and that no work is done inside the customer home.
FUTURE-PROOF, ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY DESIGN
Perlick column refrigeration uses R600a refrigerant, an environmentally friendly alternative to R-134a. R600a has low environmental impact and is non-toxic. In addition, R600a has zero ozone depletion potential, which is why it will be the new EPA mandated standard starting 2020. In addition, R600A refrigerant is up to 30% more efficient than systems using R-134a.
