How to Protect Your Walk-in Unit Doors and Help Them Last

Walk-in units are essential for businesses within the food and hospitality industry. 


There are many benefits that business owners get from them. However, what they don’t realise is how problematic it would become if they started to malfunction suddenly. Walk-in units are certainly not cheap, and getting a new one often might cost you a lot. So, isn’t it better to not wait for last-minute chaos and to take the measures needed to protect your walk-in unit doors beforehand and ensure they last.

Here are a few preventive measures you can take to extend the life of your walk-in unit and avoid unnecessary problems.


The door installation should be proper

After you purchase your walk-in unit, make sure to have a reputable and professional company like Allfield install it for you. This is important because if there are any problems at the time of installation, it won’t take very long before more problems start popping up.


Proper maintenance

Door gaskets should be cleaned frequently to prevent dirt from settling in. It is also likely that the hinges of your system are not self-lubricating so make sure to lubricate the hinges as recommended by the manufacturer.


Proper service

If you notice extensive frost or condensation building up on the doors of your walk-in unit, it is a clear indication that your system is asking for proper service. If this issue is fixed at the right time, this may be beneficial in extending the life of your walk-in unit.


Add kick plates

Kick plates are a very useful layer of protection for your walk-in unit especially when inventory is moved back and forth using carts or forklifts. It is a great way of keeping your system safe from damage.


Temperature monitoring systems

In addition to your walk-in unit, you can also install a temperature monitoring system. This can be very helpful in maintaining your walk-in units i.e. freezing or commercial refrigeration Perth units. Additionally, it will also make sure that they are running smoothly at the right temperatures or will indicate if you require further commercial air conditioning services.
