Fridges, freezers and fridge freezers in the UK are backed with either metal, aluminium laminate or plastic. All meet current industry safety standards. But we're no longer recommending products with plastic backs because our tests reveal they help fire spread more quickly.
Use this tool to check the backing material on hundreds of fridges, freezers and fridge freezers in the Which? database.
If your model isn't showing up, we recommend contacting the manufacturer.
