Designer Series Corner Installation


  • How far must a Designer (formerly Integrated) or 700 Series product be installed away from a wall in a corner application?
  • How to install a Wine Storage model IW, 427, or 427R in a corner installation
  • Minimum filler recommended for a corner installation
  • Corner application considerations


Designer Series IT and IC units, 700 Series, and Wine Storage models IW, 427, or 427R require a filler in a corner application only if the corner wall protrudes as far as the door handle will sit when the door is open.

  • The amount of filler needed will vary based on how far out the handle protrudes.
  • To cover most installations, use a 3" filler as a guideline.
  • If the handle will not interfere with the wall, the unit can be installed in a corner without a filler on the hinge side.
  • In this type of installation, using the built-in 90° door stop will prevent the door from opening too far into the wall.
  • Installing a unit in a corner without using the 90° door stop is not recommended.

Refer to the Sub-Zero Design Guide hinge detail view for further design specifications.
