Your walk in commercial refrigeration unit is up there with the most used kitchen equipment on a daily basis. However, with that amount of usage comes a huge amount of wear and tear so it’s important to keep an eye on the unit and the door seals specifically. Here at NWCE Foodservice Equipment, we offer commercial refrigeration installation Greater Manchester services. Here are our top tips to keep your walk in unit in as mint condition as possible.

It can be easy to forget about the doors, hinges, gaskets when it comes to your walk in refrigeration unit. But if they didn’t work properly then the unit itself would be extremely wasteful when it comes to energy usage. So it’s important that when it’s first fitted that it is fitted correctly. Of course that’s where our engineers at NWCE come in.
Once your commercial refrigeration has been installed correctly, it’s time to install a kick plate. This provides an extra layer of protection between the door and your shoes. The kick plates can actually help protect the door from damage that might happen when you’re moving inventory and stock in and out.
Walk ins also need regular maintenance. If your model doesn’t have self lubricating hinges, that you’ll need to lubricate them once or twice a year. The gaskets will also need to be wiped down with soapy water on a regular basis. If they start to crack or show visible signs of damage then that’s the indication to get them replaced.
And finally, with an important piece of equipment like the walk in refrigeration unit it’s worth scheduling regular service checks by a registered engineer (like us!)
