Custom Refrigeration Gaskets: What You Need to Know

If you aren't super familiar with refrigeration gaskets, we're here to answer any and all questions you might have! Our OEM-equivalent custom gaskets are made to order for under-counter, upright, and walk-in coolers and freezers. Our standard PVC gaskets are effective for temperatures ranging from -20° to 150° degrees Fahrenheit. For a full guide on common gasket profiles per manufacturer, see our Gasket Profile Guide. Here are a few tips for installing and purchasing your AllPoints Custom refrigeration gaskets. 

How to build your custom gasket:

  • Choose the gasket profile that matches your current gasket or the gasket you need. Download our Gasket Profile Guide here to find the appropriate gasket profile for your application.

  • Input the dimensions you need - short side, long side and number of sides. If your gasket is 3 sided we’ll need to know the orientation (2 long sides or 2 short sides). Measure your existing gasket from outside edge to outside edge to the nearest ⅛ inch.

  • Provide your name and phone number in the specified box in case we need to contact you with any questions regarding your custom gasket.

How to Measure Outside Edge to Outside Edge

All Measurements are noted as outside edge to outside edge dimensions. Please follow the instructions below to properly measure your gasket:

Take a look at the gasket currently on the door and match the style up to one of the gasket profiles.

Using a tape measure, measure the outside edge of the gasket that is currently on the door. If the gasket seems to be stretched or warped a bit, don't worry as long as you are within 1/8 inch, the replacement gasket should install properly.

Most refrigeration door gaskets are 4 sided, but when you are working with large walk in cooler doors, you will find many of those are 3 sided gaskets with no bottom. if the gasket is NOT 4 sided, then you will need to specify which sides you would like us to include. Typically on 3 sided gaskets the bottom is a door sweep.

How to Measure if the Gasket is Torn or Missing

Follow these instructions on how to measure if the original gasket is torn or missing.

Option #1

Locate the model and serial number of your equipment. Usually they are located on a data plate similar to the one above. Give us a call and we will help locate the correct profile.

Option #2

Using a tape measure, measure from the center of the dart track to the center of the opposite dart track that is on the door.

When placing your order, note that the dimensions are dart to dart and we will convert your measurements to outside edge dimensions.
