SYDNEY, Australia – October 22, 2012 – Samsung Electronics Australia, today introduced three new bottom mount refrigerators, specifically designed to complement the growing home appliance category in the Australian market. Packed full of features, including 3.5 Star Energy rating, Samsung’s new range combines smart design with a sophisticated and sleek style that seamlessly blends into any modern kitchen.
The new range is equipped with adjustable door guards, a triple foldable shelf, and a railed crisper drawer to store food conveniently. Food items can be cleverly stowed away and kept in great condition - helping to reduce food wastage. The newly released bottom mount refrigerators are part of a leading class of 3.5 Star energy rated bottom mount refrigerators*.
Samsung’s bottom mount refrigerators also feature a smart sensor system – an intelligent sensor that monitors patterns of use to help ensure a suitable temperature throughout the refrigerator is continually maintained.
“Samsung’s research has found that Australians are moving away from the traditional refrigerator design, and are seeking fridge and freezer combinations that are energy efficient, reliable and customisable to suit family’s needs,” said Mike Lilly, Head of Home Appliances for Samsung Electronics Australia. “With the refrigerator recently being named the number one most significant invention in the history of food and drink – Samsung continues to push the boundaries of design and innovation with the launch of the new bottom mount refrigerator range.”
The Samsung refrigerator range features a network of five intelligent sensors that monitor the patterns of consumer use, by detecting internal and external environmental factors such as climate, humidity and interior temperature.
Combating shelving restrictions, Samsung’s new bottom mount refrigerators feature a triple foldable shelf system that allows consumers to customise their storage requirements. Tupperware containers of every shape and size will have no problem fitting in with changeable shelves from a full, flat shelf, through to a half shelf, and flipped up shelf. This flexible design adapts to a family’s ever changing storage requirements.
LED is featured throughout the range with a blue LED controls display and internal dual LED stage lighting. The blue LED controls display has been placed at the top of the fridge, providing easy access to your refrigerators controls.
Samsung’s layered steel is not only sleek in appearance, but easy to maintain (SRL450ELS and SRL448DLS models only). This new look is fingerprint resistant, accepts magnets and virtually has the same look and feel as stainless steel. The long bar handle on the outside of the refrigerators caters for all heights and easy access with a comfortable grip. The SRL448DLS refrigerator also features a refillable water dispenser where consumers can access chilled water easily and there is no need to have your dispenser plumbed in.
