With our custom on-site refrigeration solutions we can provide your business with a one stop fix which typically works out up to 40% cheaper when compared with alternative solutions.
3 Steps To On-Site Refrigeration
All our refrigeration door seals are custom manufactured on-site by one of our technicians in the back of our company vehicle. We then fit the fridge door seal there and then, in one-call out at one-fixed price, with no labour charges on top and no time wasted between surveying the seal and then having to produce the new fridge door seal back at a factory. This is achieved in three simple steps:
Before our service was available this would have been a costly issue causing disruption in the kitchen with a refrigeration engineer requiring at least two visits. The first, to diagnose, measure and order the seal, the second, to fit the seal, therefore accumulating two call-out charges.
Professional Seal Cleaner
The lifespan of a fridge or freezer door seal will be extended when properly cleaned on a daily basis. Food and fat spills cause the material that seals are made of to dry out and get brittle which makes it easier for them to rip. Cleaning your seals daily with our professional seal cleaner will prevent this from happening. A clean and intact fridge or freezer door seal is also an important part of general kitchen hygiene and food safety.
How to use
Use a soft dry cloth with a professional fridge seal cleaner or a heavily diluted water-based cleaning agent for maintenance. Be mindful that aggressive cleaning agents, such as all-purpose cleaners, sanitisers, oven cleaners and aggressive degreasers cause irreparable damage when used on fridge seals.
We Fit Seals For:
- Upright cabinets
- Under counter chillers / bottle coolers
- Chest freezers
Walk-in chiller cold rooms
Walk-in freezer cold rooms
- Cold room curtains
Any split, frozen, damaged, hanging or missing seals could have a detrimental effect on a establishment ‘Food Hygiene Rating’ and could lead to a fine or even a kitchen being closed for repeated offences. It’s important that your fridge door seals are checked on a regular basis to ensure they meet the high standards for food safety and to avoid legal issues or being named in the local press.
A split, damaged or worn seal is a potential reservoir for pathogens. A pathogen is a biological agent that can cause serious illness. Refrigeration units prevent the growth of food spoilage organisms and even stops the growth of many food-borne pathogens.
In order to maintain the correct storage temperatures within the refrigeration it is essential to maintain an airtight seal between the refrigerated space and the surrounding ambient temperature.
By cleaning and replacing refrigeration door seals regularly, the risk of food cross-contamination is significantly reduced or eradicated altogether.
Here are some of the most common refrigeration seal brands that we supply:
Damaged door seals let cool air escape from your fridge or freezer, meaning you will be using more power to keep the stock you have at a low temperature, and when you consider that the energy used in catering facilities typically accounts for 4-6 percent of operating costs, your bills could end up significantly higher.
Seals generally erode because they’ve reached the end of their lifespan, which typically speaking, is between 6-18 months. Telling signs that they need to be replaced include your fridge not staying as cold as it used to and food is spoiling faster or the door pops open repeatedly, which is usually due to a weakened seal that can no longer remain suctioned closed as it should.
One way to test your refrigeration door seal is to close a piece of paper in the door and see if you can pull it out with little resistance (the seal should create a firm resistance). If the test identifies a problem, you should consider replacing the door seal.
