Why do I need to replace a commercial door seal

All commercial kitchens that provide food for the public have to follow strict health & hygiene regulations which include maintaining efficiant fridge door seals. Door seals that become worn, brittle or cracked allow air to circulate past the insulated doors. This causes the temperature to drop inside, thus creating a greater risk of food spoilage.

Broken or split commercial fridge door seals also pose a health hazard by providing a hard-to-clean breeding ground for salmonella and other micro organisms. Commercial refrigeration door seals are one of the items thoroughly checked by your Environmental Health Officer and if they are found to be faulty you may only be granted a short time in which to get them replaced. Door seals also count towards your all important Hygiene Ratings. So why not arrange a GasketGuy site inspection to check your fridge and freezer seals to ensure you are ready for your next Enviromental Health & Hygiene visit?

Faulty door seals also make the motor work much harder to keep the refrigerator cold so wearing out expensive equipment early and raising the cost of your electricity bill!

We have been told that we can't get a replacement gasket for our fridge and need to buy a new door, is this true?

Unfortunately this can be the case with some commercial refrigeration as many manufactures produce units with have non replaceable door gaskets. This means when the gasket needs replacing you have no choice but to buy a whole new door. Unfortunately, many customers do not think about having to change gaskets in the future. So it can come as a nasty shock when they have to be replaced.

However, GasketGuy custom manufactures gaskets therefore we can replace many gaskets that service companies can't. We can actually change gaskets in some of the fridges and freezers with 'non replaceable gaskets', such as Mondial Elite and Imperial, so give us a call and we could save you an unnecessary expense.

Minimum fuss, no disruption, all done the same day, simply request a GasketGuy visit.

I have a very unusual German fridge and I have been told parts will take over a month to arrive and will cost a fortune! How can you help?

I can't get replacement parts for my fridges as they are now obsolete. Is my only option to buy new fridges?

Most people, including refrigeration engineers, have to go direct to manufacturers or suppliers to get replacement parts. Therefore if the appliances are no longer produced its not long before the parts become obsolete. Hense the only option is to suggest for you to buy new. However, GasketGuy custom manufactures all gaskets so once we have established what type you need, we can supply you with your gaskets and it will be by far the cheaper option. GasketGuy can perform a full site inspection to identify all your future replacement door seals and provide a full report on the current state of your door seals.
