Convenient Capacity

Providing 13 cu. ft. of interior storage space, the unit fits up to (2) 1/2 kegs and houses (4) 17 5/8" x 18 1/8" shelves that each accommodate up to 90 lb. The epoxy-coated steel shelves are perfect for storing and organizing beverages for your bar service, from bottles of ale and beer to cans of crisp ciders.

Built for Quality

The interior, made of strong 304 type stainless steel, is accessible through two glass doors. Because they're made of glass, the doors provide excellent product visibility, enabling you to easily view your current drink or ingredient selection for efficient drink preparation. For overall durability, the unit's exterior is made with black coated steel and is topped with a type 304 stainless steel surface.

Environmentally-Friendly Refrigerant

This back bar refrigerator ensures optimal performance by operating with a 1/5 hp refrigeration system that circulates environmentally-friendly R290 hydrocarbon refrigerant to maintain temperatures from 33 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. R290 refrigerant has an ozone depletion potential (ODP) of 0 and a global warming potential (GWP) of 3, making it an environmentally-responsible choice for your business.

Narrow Design

With a narrow design, this unit fits in spaces other units can't, helping you to maximize the space you have available.

Fully Insulated

The foamed-in-place polyurethane insulation helps to trap in the cold air and to prevent the ambient air from entering.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

I haven’t heard of R-290, R-600a, or R-513a refrigerant before. What is it?
R-290 (also known as high purity propane or CARE 40) and R-600a (also known as refrigerant grade Isobutane or CARE 10) are hydrocarbon refrigerants. R513a (also known as Opteon XP10) is an HFO (hydrofluoroolefin) refrigerant. They are being used as an eco-friendly refrigerant by some manufacturers in response to the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program. Read more about this program in our blog post on Refrigerant Regulations.
Can this unit be built into cabinetry?
It should not be built into cabinetry. This unit is rear and side breathing, and for proper ventilation it requires 3" of clearance behind it and on the sides.
I'd like to install casters on this unit. Do I need 4 casters?
Yes, this item requires 4 casters. For convenience, we offer a kit with all of the casters and the M8-1.25mm x 20mm bolts required to mount them. See the Items You May Also Need section.
What if my Avantco cooler doesn’t seem to be getting cold enough throughout the cabinet?
Make sure that you are loading it properly, and not overloading it. This unit is designed for cans, bottles, and similar items that naturally enable good airflow within the cabinet. Overloading the cooler with cases and boxes will interrupt the airflow and negatively impact the unit’s performance.
My Avantco cooler’s compressor doesn’t kick on until 47 degrees, what should I do?
Before contacting Avantco for warranty service, please try resetting the temperature differential using these instructions.
Does this unit work with any half-barrel kegs?
While this unit does have ample interior space, it is best used with straight-wall kegs, not barrel-style kegs. If you have any questions about what style keg you have, please contact your beer distributor for more information.

Here's some basic settings you can make to your Avantco refrigerator in your restaurant. If you want to adjust the temperature, you hold set for one second and you'll see your low temperature limit. This unit is set to shut off at 33 degrees. If you want to have it shut off at a warmer temperature you can adjust it up. But it will not go below 33. You see when I get to 33 it just cycles back up to the top of the temperature range. Take this unit back down to 33 degrees. Press set to save it and you're back to your home screen.

    The Avantco 48" Black Narrow Glass Door Undercounter Back Bar Refrigerator with LED Lighting is a reliable unit that keeps beverages cold.The glass doors allow for easy visibility for employees and guests.
    This cooler works great. The only thing I dont care for is the button for the light and the power button are right next to each other so we did have an issue once where an employee was turning off the machine instead of just the light. But otherwise it works great.
    this fridge is awesome. it has a lot of storage and keeps things nice and cool. the temp does not change when you open the door which is great
    The service from webstaurantstore was 10 star. They were polite and responsive. Fabulous company. The bar refrigerator works great too. All in all the experience was great. Highly recommended!
    I am not happy with this product. Don't order any Avantco products. I had ordered this cooler and in just a year and half the compressor went. My guy who works on my stuff told me it was not built correctly and that there was a ton of leaks in it for the compressor to go bad so quickly. I called Avantco to cover some of the cost for my guy to put the new compressor in and they will not cover it. If the unit was created right it won't of been a problem. I will never order anything from them again, that's why there so cheap in the first place.
    Thank you for your review, john tosco! We are sorry this Avantco UBB-48G-HC 48 inch Black Counter Height Narrow Glass Door Back Bar Refrigerator with LED Lighting has not worked well for you. This unit comes with a 5 year compressor only warranty, we would be happy to send you a compressor under warranty.
