Model AFM19W is a large capacity front-opening freezer with an 18.3 cu.ft. interior. It is ETL-S listed to NSF-7 for commercial storage applications.

The dial thermostat is located inside to prevent accidental temperature adjustments. Cantilevered shelving with epoxy-coated wire shelves allows you to adjust the interior to best accommodate a variety of sizes, while the flat door liner helps to fit deeper trays than units equipped with door racks. An automatic LED light makes it easy to see the full interior.

The reversible door includes an easy-grip handle in a brushed aluminum finish. This unit includes a 9'5" long power cord with a hospital grade 'green dot' plug for a more secure connection, ideal for high traffic commercial environments. The cooling system utilizes hydrocarbon refrigerant for a greener footprint that meets CARB regulations. For advanced insulation, the door features a vacuum seal that keeps all cold air inside.
