What Materials Are The Best For Cold Room Doors?


The materials used for cold room doors can vary and affect performance regarding cold-proofing, durability, antimicrobial capacity, and other factors. Some regulations dictate which specific materials we can use to produce cold-room door components, but in other cases, we can choose which materials to use. The three main materials used for cold room door components are composite plastic, stainless steel, and aluminum. Each of these materials has different characteristics that we can use successfully depending on the desired performance.


Composite plastic materials are a large family of materials used in industry that are constantly evolving to be lighter while maintaining performance in terms of tenacity and resistance to mechanical stimuli. These characteristics make plastic components ideal for refrigeration. Industrial refrigeration is where plastic components must perform well over time despite continuous stress and exposure to low temperatures and humidity. Plastic is not prone to corrosion.  Consequently, plastic is highly suitable for this context, primarily in composite materials such as glass fiber-reinforced nylon. Plastic materials are not thermally conductive, which benefits the efficiency and cold-proofing of a cold room.

In addition to their functional benefits, composite plastic materials are lighter and less expensive than steel and easier to process on an industrial scale. This advantage makes production more efficient and allows quicker and more customized product manufacturing. Using composite plastic materials can also improve the functionality and ergonomics of the final product. Consequently allowing greater flexibility for the designer. Overall, composite plastic materials offer numerous advantages in terms of performance, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness for cold room door components.

We find that component quality is more important than material type. Quality polymers, like quality steel or aluminum, guarantee that the cold room door will overcome usage stress and last in time.
