Sliding Doors

First, you will find sliding doors. It is common to find slide doors on walk-in coolers and freezers. The door will slide one way or the other. When inspecting your refrigeration equipment, make sure the door slides closed. It must be completely closed to avoid air leaks. If the door doesn’t completely close, air will escape and the system will use more energy to keep the room cold. You’ll risk losing ingredients and paying out of pocket to replace these items. The cost will be very expensive. More pressure will be placed on the components so there will be a higher risk that something is going to break. Let us inspect your slide doors to make sure everything is okay.

Swinging Doors

Your walk-in freezer may feature swing doors. Although they serve the same purpose, swing doors are different. They feature different components and swing open. They do not slide. You will find a sweep at the bottom of the door. The sweep is vitally important because it helps stop air from entering and exiting the walk-in unit.

Unfortunately, this might be too difficult for the average individual. Therefore, we recommend working with a qualified professional.
