Portable chest fridges have been popular amongst outdoor enthusiasts, campers, and travellers for many years. In comparison to portable upright fridges, they have several distinct advantages.

Chest fridges are portable allowing you to take it out of the vehicle if you need it for an upcoming party to store extra drinks or leftovers! 

Portable chest fridges have a larger capacity and can store more items. This is because they have a deeper and wider storage space, making it easier to fit larger items such as bottles, cans, and even whole chickens. In contrast, portable upright fridges have a more limited storage capacity and are best suited for smaller items such as drinks and snacks.

Portable chest fridges have better insulation than portable upright fridges. This means they can keep items cooler for longer periods of time, even in hot temperatures. In contrast, portable upright fridges may struggle to maintain a consistent temperature in hot weather, which can negatively impact the quality of the stored items.

Portable chest fridges are generally more energy-efficient than portable upright fridges. This is because chest fridges have a lid that opens from the top, which reduces cold air loss and keeps the temperature more stable. In contrast, upright fridges have a door that opens from the front, which can lead to more cold air being let out whenever you open the door.

Portable chest fridges can also be used no matter what angle your vehicle is on, they don’t need as much ventilation space as Uprights and their design is such that compressors and heat exchanges aren’t exposed to potential damage. Defrosting is something that doesn’t have to happen as often with portable chest fridges.

One of the main drawbacks of portable chest fridges is their height, and fully loaded weight, when in the back of the vehicle. Add a 2” lift to the vehicle and suddenly, accessing your food and drinks becomes a mission that requires a portable caravan step!

This is where Clearview’s Drop-Down Fridge Slide Range comes in handy!

The primary goal of drop down fridge slides is to make accessing your portable fridge or freezer as easy, safe and efficient as possible. No more struggling to reach for a cold drink or meal while you’re out living your best life.

A drop-down fridge slide is a mechanism that allows you to easily slide your fridge or freezer in and out of your vehicle or outdoor kitchen setup. It is designed to securely hold and protect your fridge while providing easy access to your food and drinks. The "drop-down" part refers to the fact that the slide can be lowered to a lower level for easier access, and then raised back up to its original position for storage. 

Clearview offers two drop down fridge slide ranges; the ever popular Easy Slide range and the new lightweight aluminium Power Slide™ range!

The Clearview Power Slide® is an innovative and patented aluminium powered fridge slide that provides easy access to cold food and drinks with the press of a button. This lightweight and efficient design ensures low power consumption, making it suitable for most battery setups. The Power Slide™ smoothly lowers and raises a fully loaded fridge, with its 180kg load rating making light work of even the heaviest of fridges!  

The Clearview Easy Slide® is the ultimate drop-down fridge slide, designed to provide easy access to cold food and drinks no matter where your adventure takes you. With the ability to smoothly lower the fridge by up to 290mm and the option to choose from four different platform heights, the Easy Slide® offers versatility and practicality.
