The new WAECO CRX refrigerator by Dometic has been nominated for a prestigious DAME Design Award.
The DAME Awards Jury has selected the CRX – the first marine refrigerator with a patented removable freezer compartment – in the ‘interior equipment, furnishing, materials and electrical fittings used in cabins’ category.
The versatile and stylish CRX has been developed by the refrigeration specialists at Dometic to provide boat owners with a unique three-in-one cabinet solution. The easy slide-out freezer can be quickly taken out to transform the CRX refrigerator/freezer into a larger capacity refrigerator-only unit or the temperature of the entire unit can be reduced as low as 17°F (-8°C) to provide a freezer-only unit.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the DAME Design Award was initiated to recognise the best-designed products at the METSTRADE exhibition and successfully highlights the importance of design for all marine products every year. The DAME Jury considers the expected impact on the marine industry of entries, their suitability for intended purpose, the level of innovation, the cost effectiveness and environmental impact.
The WAECO CRX fridge is among the short-listed products that have been nominated to go forward for final judging by the Jury of the silver jubilee edition of the DAME Awards. The jury will eventually choose up to seven Category Winners and one Overall Winner which will be announced during the Breakfast Briefing on the opening day of the METSTRADE show 2015, which takes place from 17 to 19 November in the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre. Nominated and winning products will be on display during the METSTRADE show as part of a special presentation near to Entrance C.
