New Vitrifrigo 14 Litre Top Opening 12 Volt Fridge

Monday, October 8th, 2012

Vitrifrigo will be launching their new 14 litre top opening 12 volt fridge at the NEC Motorhome and Caravan Show from 16th 21st October. The C14 is just 225mm wide making it ideal for small campervan and motorhome conversions, fitting where space is a premium or where kitchen work tops are narrow.

Compact Dimensions for a Top Opening 12 Volt Fridge

With a width of just 330mm and a depth of just 225mm the Vitrifrigo C14 is the smallest ‘built-in’ top opening 12 volt fridge on the market.  The compact dimensions means you can build a fridge into a space that no other 12 volt fridge will fit.  Either providing the option to fit a fridge to a small conversion, or allowing you to maximise the space for a bigger bed or other important components, without sacrificing the benefits of having a proper fridge. As a top opening 12 volt fridge will also provide far easier access, especially in a smaller campervan conversion where the bed can often obstruct a front opening fridge door.

The fridge is supplied with the Danfoss BD35 compressor attached with 1.2m of refrigerant pipe to allow you to remote mount the compressor in a location that suits your design. The thermostat is also designed to be fitted externally to the box so that you maximise the full volume inside the cabinet.  The standard lid is supplied with hinges which can be removed if the lid is to be mounted directly onto the work top for a different hinge or lift out arrangement.

Alternative Top Opening 12 Volt Fridge

The C14 is designed as a very specialist top opening 12 volt fridge and this does reduce the volume of the fridge.  If you have more space available you may be better off looking at Vitrifrigo’s larger alternatives – C40L and C37L  For full details on the range of top opening fridges and freezers follow the link below to Penguin’s web shop:
