Doors are common in restaurant equipment design from refrigerators and freezers, to ovens to ice machines. A door is a hinged or otherwise movable panel that allows access to an enclosure, cabinet, bin, or other cavity or container. A door assembly comprises the components that work in tandem to allow the door to function properly such as the door set, strike, catch and lock set. Doors may be hinged and swing open and closed, or they may slide within a frame. Very frequently, restaurant equipment doors feature tempered glass windows which allow for visual inspection or merchandising of food and beverage products.
Gaskets are used in restaurant equipment to create a seal between two surfaces, such as between the door of a refrigerator and the frame or between two pieces of metal in a gas range. The gasket helps to prevent leaks of air or liquids, as well as to maintain a consistent temperature inside the equipment. Gaskets are often made of rubber or other flexible materials that can withstand heat and cold and maintain their shape over time. They are used in a wide variety of restaurant equipment, including refrigerators, freezers, ovens, and steam tables and are also commonly used in plumbing for equipment and sinks.
