Door Options: What Type of Entryway is Best for Your Walk-In Freezer or Cooler

Door Options: What Type of Entryway is Best for Your Walk-In Freezer or Cooler

There are many types of doors available for custom freezers and refrigerators. Depending on the space you have available and your customer needs, certain doors may be better for your walk-in freezer or cooler than others.

We are happy to guide you through the process of choosing the door or doors that are right for you:


Glass doors are essential if your business’ main attraction is a display walk-in freezer or cooler. It is important to keep the view of your merchandise clear and free of condensation so choosing the right glass doors is vital. Heated glass may be necessary for your display walk-in. Bush refrigeration guarantees 100% clear visibility into your coolers. These doors also utilize light within the cooler to illuminate your products.


Hinged doors are a classic option for walk-in freezers and coolers. Most offer robust locking mechanisms and are extremely secure. These doors are wonderful for coolers or freezers that offer extra storage space. These doors usually come in a variety of metal finishes to match coolers and interior designs. They offer quality insulation to keep your cooler or freezer as energy efficient as possible.


Power sliding doors are a great option for walk-ins that have high forklift traffic. These power doors come in both single leaf and bi-parting options depending on how much space you have available in your business’ location. They are extremely convenient for customers and employees alike and allow an easy flow of traffic throughout your business as people retrieve products from your walk-in cooler or freezer.


Last but not least, some business owners already have a cooler or freezer but notice that their doors are starting to accumulate quite a bit of wear and tear. An older door becomes less efficient over time so it is best to replace it in order to keep your entire cooler or freezer unit in tiptop shape. Don’t fret if your appliance is an older model or a custom size. At Bush Refrigeration, we can build doors to fit and accommodate your existing freezer or cooler opening. With a new retrofit replacement door your walk-in cooler will be back to running efficiently.

When it comes to purchasing a new freezer or renovating an existing one, doors are a subtle but important piece of the puzzle. They get used and handled on a daily basis so it is critical that you choose the right type of door for you business. At Bush Refrigeration, we are happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding what type of door is best for your new freezer or cooler.
