SUMMIT offers the industry’s largest selection of ADA compliant built-in undercounter refrigeration, with a range of choices to best meet the needs of any home or facility with height limitations.

Sized with a 24” footprint and 32” height, the AR5BIF is an all-refrigerator with a front-breathing system that allows built-in installation under lower ADA compliant counters. The fully finished cabinet also enables freestanding use. This model comes with a black cabinet finish. The door includes an integrated stainless steel frame designed to accept full overlay panels, allowing you to create a custom look that blends into your own cabinetry. Customers provide their own handle. Panels should be sized at 23 5/16" W x 28 1/4" H and at least 3/4" thick. 

Inside, the AR5BIF utilizes automatic defrost operation to ensure minimum user maintenance. The 5.5 cu.ft. interior offers more storage space than most models in this size class. Adjustable glass shelves ensure spill-proof storage, with a removable scalloped wine shelf ideal for keeping bottles in place. The door includes three storage racks for condiments and tall bottles. The white interior offers easy visibility, with an automatic light included. The AR5BIF features Summit's intuitive dial thermostat for easy temperature management.

Designed and constructed in Europe, the AR5BIF brings reliable cold storage to any setting in need of a quality refrigerator in an ADA compliant height. Additional ADA compliant choices are available in a variety of sizes and styles. Browse our website for more options.
