Quality & Innovation That Inspires

Frequently Asked Questions

Product Information

What are the benefits of Perlick’s vinyl-coated full-extension shelving?

  • Vinyl coated full-extension shelving is an industry exclusive, PERLICK is the only company to offer innovative full-extension shelving that actually extends completely out of the refrigerator or wine cabinet.
  • Guard rails are a part of the vinyl coated full-extension shelving, preventing products from dropping off of the back or off of the sides of the shelves.
  • Each durable, commercial-grade quality, vinyl coated full-extension shelf can hold 34 Kg smooth gliding shelf holds up to seven (7) six-packs.
  • The shelving is vinyl coated to prevent contents from shifting/sliding on the shelves (preventing spills in the refrigerator and no vibration in the wine cabinet).
  • The convenient full-extension design allows the user to easily reach products stored in the back of the compartment for even greater convenience; the home owner can also adjust the height of the shelves.
  • Unlike other companies, PERLICK's vinyl coated full-extension shelving functions with stainless steel ball bearings to maximize smoothness when the shelves are extended.

Why don’t Perlick doors go all the way to the top of the cabinet?

Hinging a door from the top and bottom of the unit creates a constant pull, especially when the door is being opened and closed often. Eventually, this creates a sag in the door making it off balance. By hinging the doors on the front, the door is solidly in place and can stand the rigors of daily use by those who truly love to entertain. In addition, the design of the doors allows the cabinet to accommodate both drop face and bull nose countertops.

Why does Perlick use only commercial-grade stainless steel interiors?

  • Perlick is the only company to offer commercial-grade stainless steel interiors as a standard feature in all of its undercounter products.
  • Stainless steel is a natural energy conductor, so using on the interior of the cabinet helps maintain consistent temperatures within each compartment of the cabinet while conserving energy.
  • Perlick’s commercial-grade stainless steel interiors feature superior craftsmanship, are extremely durable, and are easy to clean.
