When setting up a cold storage area – whether that’s a full cold room or just a bank of refrigerators – it’s important to make sure that the seal on your cold storage units is up to scratch. A faulty or improper seal is the number one reason for cold storage failure, and a broken cold room gasket can lead to spoilage or loss of everything in the refrigerated area and even damage to the fridge itself, as it attempts to lower its internal temperature with the faulty seal preventing its door from closing properly.
With the broken seal essentially stopping the refrigerated area from closing itself off properly, the outside atmosphere will seep in, raising the temperature inside the refrigerated area and causing strain to the coolers.
Protect your stock and your refrigerators with proper gaskets, enabling a full seal and preventing the catastrophic loss that occurs when a cool area can’t cool itself down. MTcss has a wide range of gaskets available to help ensure that every one of our clients can find the component they need and keep their refrigerated units up and going!
Different sorts of cold room gasket
Cold room gaskets are crucial for keeping the seals intact on a cold room or other large refrigerated unit. However, not all cold rooms are alike – different styles of door, different sizes and levels of use, and different interior temperatures can all influence your choice of seal. Different models of fridge or freezer will have the biggest impact on which gaskets you’ll need, making certain shapes and sizes necessary for a good seal.
Before placing an order, you should consider the kind of door that your refrigerated unit uses, as the gaskets required for a sliding door are vastly different to those required for a swing-door fridge.
The range of cold room gaskets available from MTcss include sweeper gaskets and sliding door gaskets of all sizes, as well as gasket retainer corners and sliding door retainers to help keep your refrigeration up and running! Each of the gaskets from MTcss are available with retainers with predrilled holes to allow quick and easy installation, and we recommend keeping a few spares – after all, when you’ve lost the seal on one of your fridges, you may not have time to wait for delivery!
The seemingly-unusual shapes of many cold room gaskets are all specific to their function, and the kind of doors which they will be sealing closed. Each is carefully designed to form a tight seal – so before you choose one, check your refrigerated unit’s instruction manual or technical specification to see whether you can find the kind of seal or cold room gasket designed for use with this door type. If you can’t, then don’t hesitate to call the experts at MTcss on 01886 833381 – the experts on the other end of the line will be happy to help you work through the available cold room gaskets and find one that can solve your problem.
