“Supremely stylish and functional, our slimmed-down models deliver greater freshness and efficiency through the considered use of cutting-edge technology. LG will continue to remain true to its customer-first philosophy and provide solutions that make life better.”
He said with sleek designs and handy features, the new line-up presents premium quality refrigeration solutions in space-friendly sizes.
Dae-hyun said: “The first French-Door refrigerators to be fitted with the company’s cutting-edge Linear Cooling and Door Cooling technologies, the slim models ensure that food stays fresher for longer. LG’s advanced inverter linear compressor, helps to lower energy consumption”.
The products have a 10-year warranty each and are built to meet the diverse needs of discerning consumers throughout the Middle East and Africa.
The Slim French-Door refrigerators are just 835 millimetres wide, smaller than the 850-900-millimetre width of the average fridge space allocated in most kitchens.
Meanwhile, Dae-hyun said DoorCooling maintains an even temperature throughout the refrigerator and cools 19.7 percent faster than a conventional cooling system.
“With air vents located inside the top of the fridge, DoorCooling directs airflow to the door area to keep items stored in the door basket at their best. This feature greatly reduces the temperature gap between the inner part of the storage compartment and the interior of the door.
“Moreover, the Slim French-Door refrigerators use 32 percent less energy and provide the ultimate durability thanks to LG’s Inverter Linear Compressor. The compressor not only makes these fridges highly energy efficient, but 25 percent quieter than conventional LG models as well,” he said.
