Liebherr North America
Liebherr is known for product excellence and innovation in freestanding, fully integrated, built-in and wine storage refrigeration units.
Liebherr takes the lead in both environmentally conscious manufacturing practices and energy efficient products.
Key product features and why they are important:
Better Food Preservation
Highlighted by dual refrigeration and Liebherr's patented BioFresh® system, Liebherr products create the ideal climate for perfect preservation and long-term freshness. BioFresh® is unparalleled in the industry â€“ high humidity compartments actually create an environment where vitamins in fresh fruit and vegetables can continue to grow. Groceries last longer and are more nutritious.
Better Use of Space
Innovative FrostSafe freezer drawers keep cold air from escaping when the door is open. These individual transparent drawers make all items easy to see and access â€“ even at the very back of a bottom mount refrigerator. Liebherr's removable and flexible drawer system, called VarioSpace, allows expansion for oversized items such as a turkey or large container.
Better Energy Efficiency and Noise Control
The refrigerator is the only appliance in the home that runs 24/7. For this reason, high efficiency is essential for energy savings and the environment. Liebherr's variable temperature compressors are always on at the perfect speed â€“ there are no â€œonâ€ and â€œoffâ€ surges that eat up power. Competitive products place their compressors on top at the front of the unit and essentially, act like a speaker to the kitchen. Liebherr compressor systems are at the bottom and the back, and are therefore SuperQuiet - virtually silent to the human ear.
Beautiful, Contemporary Design
With strong European influences, the sleek look of Liebherr products hold strong appeal to every kitchen dÃ©cor. Liebherr offers the professional styling of stainless steel finishes or the choice to use with an overlay or framed to match cabinetry. This flexibility and the attention to detail is coveted by the design trade.
The list of green achievements by Liebherr, is a long one, and ActiveGreen best summarize Liebherr's proactive stance. ActiveGreen is a corporate mission to achieve the highest ENERGY STAR® rating, to set the example and encourage other North American manufacturers to be RoHS compliant as Liebherr did in mid-2007, and to have the least damaging effect on the environment through responsible manufacturing practices. Liebherr's entire product line of indoor refrigeration meets and exceeds the new guidelines for ENERGY STAR®, making Liebherr the only brand in the North American marketplace to achieve these standards. All Liebherr appliances in North America met RoHS compliance making Liebherr the FIRST refrigeration manufacturer to comply with this practise worldwide.
