Whirlpool introduces metal backs for all UK refrigeration

Whirlpool has introduced design upgrades that will see its entire portfolio of refrigeration appliances for sale in the UK manufactured with flame-retardant metal back panels by Q3 2018. All fridges, freezers and fridge/freezers across all its UK brands – including Hotpoint, Indesit and Whirlpool – will have solid metal or aluminium laminate flame-retardant back panels.

Whirlpool says this means all the manufacturer’s products will be fully compliant with new incoming UK and EU safety standards ahead of their expected introduction in 2019. The upgrades, says the company,  will not compromise the appliances’ energy efficiency and performance qualities.

Andrzej Tuleja, General Manager of Whirlpool UK & Ireland, said: “These design changes to our refrigeration portfolio underscore our commitment to product performance as well as safety. We are proud of these and other accelerated breakthroughs in our design and manufacturing processes that put us well ahead of evolving standards and regulations.”
