Undercounter or Wine Storage Flush Inset Information


  • Can a UC-24, UC-15I, UW-24, or 424 be installed as a flush inset unit?
  • Are specifications available for the flush inset of a 424, UW-24, UC-15I, or UC-24 model?
  • Considerations when installing a UC-24, UC-15I, UW-24, or 424 with custom panels
  • Undercounter standard panel thickness
  • Undercounter opening depth for flush installation


The UC-24, UC-15I, UW-24, and 424 can be installed in a flush inset application, if desired.

  • Opening specifications for a flush installation are not available.
  • Depending on the thickness of the custom door panel, it may be necessary to install the unit 1/4" beyond the front surface of adjacent cabinetry to prevent interference when the door is opened to 145°.
  • If the door is pushed past 90°, door panels may be damaged, as there is no door stop to prevent the door from hitting the adjacent cabinetry for the UC-24, UW-24, and 424.
  • The UC-15I has the ability to stop at 90°.
  • Specifications in the design guide and Quick Reference Guides assume a 3/4" custom panel or the accessory stainless steel panels.

Refer to the Sub-Zero Design Guide for design specifications and custom panel dimensions.
