Sub-Zero Standard and Accessory Handle Options and Information

Topics:

  • Handle options for Sub-Zero refrigerators and freezer
  • Where can sales accessory handles be purchased?
  • Can any decorative handles be installed on to the overlay or flush inset panel for a BI?
  • Recommended handle length

Answer:

Any handle can be used on Sub-Zero products that have custom panels. Units ordered framed or stainless steel (/F, /S) come with handles.

  • Flush inset stainless steel panels come with handles.
  • Sub-Zero tubular and pro handles are brushed stainless steel, pictured below.
  • Overlay units not using flush inset panels must purchase handles separately.
Handle Options

Handle options vary based upon specific models. Refer to the appropriate link:

Sub-Zero offers some handle styles in various lengths that are available for purchase through the local dealer. See also:

The following handles are no longer available as a sales accessory. They are available only as replacement parts if needed:

Purchase Handles

Sub-Zero does not sell any other handles than the ones listed above. Custom door pulls are provided by the customer.

Contact a Local Dealer for further sales information, or contact a Factory Certified Parts Distributor to order replacement parts.

Panel Requirements

Overlay and flush inset panels must be a minimum of 5/8" thick to support mounting the handle.

  • Panel thickness does not include the backer and spacer panel.
  • Handles are installed on the overlay panels prior to being installed on the doors/drawers.
  • A recessed fingertip groove is acceptable as long as all specifications are met.
  • See also, Handle Placement on Overlay Panel.
Tips

Any style handle may be used, but keep some guidelines in mind:

  • Sub-Zero recommends a handle with two points of attachment. Pulling on a knob style handle regularly over time can result in the handle coming loose.
  • Detachment is more likely if a handle is attached to the side of a panel.
  • There is no minimum handle length. Knobs can be used, but they may not withstand the weight of pulling the doors open every day.
