    Integrated fridge freezer 60/40 or 70/30? 8th Jul 18 at 12:39 AM
    Need to buy an integrated fridge freezer & do not know whether there was a 60/40 or 70/30 there before, the top fridge unit door is 120cm & the bottom freezer unit door is 71.5cm would this be a 60/40 or 70/30?

    60/40. overall its 191.5cm so take the percentages into consideration and it can only be the 60/40.

    What exactly are you trying to achieve? Is it integrated and you need to attach the existing integrated kitchen doors? In which case, the spec of the fridge freezer you are looking at should tell you what size the doors are.

    The 60/40 or 70/30 generally refers to the capacity more than just the door height. So it does rather depend on the internal set-up of the fridge-freezer as well.

    Have you measured some appliance and they match up with the sizes you mentioned in your first post.

    There are 3 sizes it's pretty much universal across kitchen ranges and FF manufacturers. 50/50, 60/40 and 70/30.


    50/50 is obvious, 60/40 there isn't a lot in it, but 70/30 you can easily spot as the difference in size is obvious.


    Link a photo to be sure.
