Sub-Zero Custom or Wood Toe Kick

Topics:

  • Can a custom toe kick replace the existing toe kick on a Sub-Zero product?
  • Can the bottom kickplate area be covered by a toe kick or other material?
  • Can the kickplate be painted another color?

Answer:

A custom toe kick can be made to replace the existing kickplate on any Sub-Zero model.

Classic (BI), 600, 500, and UC Undercounter Series Units:

  • Use the existing toe kick as a template for the custom toe kick.
  • Verify that the height, width, and dimensions of any slats or openings on the custom kickplate are identical to the one that came with the unit for proper airflow and cooling operation.
  • The custom piece must be removable for servicing purposes and allow access to the drain pan if needed.
  • Kickplates can be painted a different color if desired.
  • Sub-Zero does not have installation instructions for custom kickplates.
  • For stainless steel kickplates, refer to Built-In Series Kickplate Accessory.

Designer Undercounter (DEU):

Designer (IT, IC, ID) Series:

  • The two rows of vented louvers can be covered if the door panel is a minimum 4" (102) from the finished floor.
  • The custom piece must be removable for servicing purposes and allow access to the drain pan if needed.
  • Kickplates can be painted a different color if desired.
  • A decorative toe kick cannot extend beyond the front of the refrigerator body, as shown below.

For kickplates less than 4" in height, refer to Designer (Formerly Integrated) Reduced Toe Kick Installation for more information.

Refer to the Sub-Zero Design Guide for design specifications.
