The Isotherm BI-172 Built-In Refrigerator / Freezer is a revolutionary advancement in marine refrigeration which gives boat builders a way to build-in a reliable refrigerator/freezer with multiple access points.  The BI-172 has the versatility to be a refrigerator with large freezer section or to remove the freezer partition and make it refrigerator only.  The BI-172 is AC/DC as well, working on all common power sources worldwide. 

Two top opening hatches which can be configured to open to the back or side make easy access to the freezer and fridge sections and a side door allows easy access to storage in the lower fridge sections.  Top access retains cold and reduces energy consumption, making the BI-172 an excellent energy-efficient fridge/freezer for all boat types. 

With its remote-mount compressor, the BI-172 solves refrigerator ventilation and service issues by allowing installation of the compressor in well-ventilated, easy-to-access locations away from the refrigerator. 

The BI-172 can be built into a galley or the newly-popular, on-deck fiberglass entertainment consoles without the problems associated with exposure to salt spray, wash down, and the general rigors of boating.  The BI-172 can be built-in to wood cabinets with Corian tops or fiberglass structures to blend in seamlessly with the boat’s design.

A robust system of cooling coils and extra-thick insulation guarantees high performance and efficiency under the most demanding nautical conditions. Copper cooling coils wrap two sides of the freezer compartment and one side of the refrigerator compartment to deliver reliable cooling, even in tropical conditions.
