Trade: Matrix MFU201 Built-In Undercounter Larder Fridge

Guest blog by Rob from Hughes Trade Peterborough,

If you work in the building, property renovation and maintenance sectors, look no further than our range of Matrix appliances. Owned by CDA, their range of integrated electricals are very popular with our Hughes Trade customers and it isn’t hard to see why! They deliver a good quality build but without the frills of more expensive branded products. They are also supported by a 12 month onsite parts and labour warranty and a 24 months parts only warranty – all arranged by CDA’s UK service network and call centre.

The MFU201 is a versatile larder fridge with a spacious 135L net capacity. Like all of the products in the Matrix range, it is supplied unbadged creating a simple aesthetic which can easily blend in with existing products in the Kitchen. It is due to this that they are our absolute go to for the replacement market. They build affordable replacements that don’t force the brand into a customer’s property.

This integrated under-counter fridge is packed full of features including an interior light, three glass shelves, two salad crisper compartments, two door balconies and one egg tray. This gives you plenty of storage options and also enables you to separate your fruit and vegetables in separate crisper drawers. Focusing on the more technical aspects of the design, the MFU201 has height adjustable feet, a reversible door, fixed hinges, and an incredibly quiet motor that chills your food at 41dBA and holds an A+ energy rating at 117kWh per year.

Upon opening the packaging, the first thing that you’ll notice is that the strong packaging slips off over the top making it very easy to unpack and leaves the unit sat on the base of the packaging. This reduces the risk of marking the floors while also giving a stable base for any pre-install preparation.

You’ll also notice that the main fixings are already attached to the door and additional fittings for the facia, hole coverings and top fixings are in the additional pack. You can also expect to find a detailed instruction book, egg holder and a cleaning tool for your drain pipe – make use of this to avoid unnecessary calls when the pipe becomes blocked!

When you’re next in a Hughes Trade branch, remember to grab a matrix brochure to keep to hand! This handy little book includes the normal product features but also carries exact dimensions of both the unit and the cut outs required for installation.
