Marvel Industries has long been an industry leader in quality undercounter refrigeration. In late 2003, Marvel overhauled most of their appliance line, introducing features never before seen in the industry. Of course, Marvel appliances keep the features they are legendary for, such as heavy-duty commercial style compressors, superior manufacturing and construction, and front ventilation and finished sides for the flexibility of built-in or free standing installation. Here are the major changes to Marvel's line of refrigeration products.
Full Wrap Doors
Most luxury undercounter refrigerators have aluminum framed doors that accept 1/4" panels. The panels in the door generally come in several colors (e.g., white, black or stainless steel), but the aluminum frame along the edge of the door is still visible. Marvel has solved this problem by changing to doors whose metal covering completely wraps the front, top, and sides of the door, for a solid, seamless look. Combine that with the new professional style handles, and you get a truly exquisite undercounter unit.
Please note that models ordered with full wrap doors do not accept panels.
Overlay Solid Doors
Most luxury undercounter refrigeration units accept custom panels. However, they usually only accept 1/4" flat panels that are inserted into an aluminum framed door - so the aluminum frame is still visible! Marvel overlay units now accept panels that are 5/8" to 3/4" in width, and can match seamlessly with your cabinetry. In fact, with the new overlay solid doors installed with panels to match your cabinets, only the grill on the unit is visible (while the door is closed). Click here for panel sizing information.
Most manufacturers use the same hardware on all their models, with little regard to the color of the door or cabinet of the actual unit. Marvel is bucking this trend with color coordinated monochromatic hardware. Units with black doors have black hinges, screws, striker plates and grill parts. White models have white hardware and stainless steel models have stainless hardware with black grills.
Marvel's new recessed gasket design means less of the door gasket is visible while the door is closed for a more integrated and seamless look. **Exceptions: Models 15IM, 80RF, 29AF, and 29AFFF not available with full wrap doors or overlay solid doors. White icemakers models 15IM and 25IM have black grills. Glass door models (Wine and Beverage Coolers) not available with full wrap or solid overlay doors.
