How To Protect Your Commercial Refrigerator Door

The door on your commercial refrigerator is the main barrier that prevents heat from entering the refrigerator and prevents cold from escaping. Seals prevent cold air from leaving. However, the door might wear out and there are steps you need to take to make sure the refrigerator door remains in good condition.

Make Sure the Door is Installed Properly

Make sure that the door is installed properly from the start. Make sure to have a professional walk-in refrigeration company install the door for you. Having a properly installed refrigerator door is important because it will effect how long your refrigerator will last.

Install a Kick Plate

There are many components you may install on your commercial refrigeration door that will protect it from damage. For example, you may install a kick plate that places a material between your shoes and the door when you walk into and out of the refrigerator. During a busy and stressful work environment, you'll often be moving handcarts and forklifts into and out of the refrigerator.

Make Sure the Door is Well-Maintained

Make sure to practice regular maintenance on the door. Some doors are not self-lubricating and you'll need to lubricate them yourself. Wipe down the gaskets to make sure that dirt and grime don't build up. If you notice that the door gaskets have become stiff or are cracking, make sure to replace them. Also, instruct workers do not be too aggressive when opening and closing the door.

Look Out for Frost or Condensation

Check the door to make sure that it doesn't have too much frost or condensation buildup. When there is a lot of buildup, this can be a sign that there is something wrong with the commercial refrigerator and you'll need to contact a technician.

Consider Replacing the Door

When your commercial refrigerator door does wear down, you'll need to eventually have it repaired and replaced by a technician who specializes in commercial refrigeration repair. It's always a bad idea to try to service your commercial refrigerator yourself because you may not be legally allowed to handle refrigerants. 

In some cases, you won't be able to repair your refrigerator and you'll instead need to turn to a new commercial refrigerator. Under these circumstances, look for a refrigerator that comes with a great warranty. Then, when your commercial refrigerator door wears down, you may be able to have it replaced for free.

Do you know when your washing machine and dryer aren't working properly? Did you know that just because the machines go through the cycles that it doesn't necessarily mean that they are in good working order? I had no idea that my washing machine had something wrong with it until the technician came out for a regular cleaning and inspection of it.
