Have you ever heard the phrase “When one door closes another one will open” ? Are you asking yourself, “Why the (insert expletive here) wont my glass display doors close?” You close one reach-in glass door and the next glass display door pops right open! This can be extremely frustrating, infuriating, irritating and … you name it.

Every time this happens you are losing $ Money…

  • Your compressor is working harder to keep your refrigeration unit cold.
  • Your refrigeration case will need more HVAC work in the future
  • Your electric bill skyrockets.
  • More parts on the door will break (yay!).
  • Your Lighting turns on – wasting even more electricity.
  • Your Ant-sweat hearts have to kick it up a notch.

So what gives? How can this problem be fixed? It is a simple replacement. You need a new door closer kit/torque rod for your glass display doors. Depending on the manufacturer of your glass display doors (not the big walk-in cooler door) certain door kits and torque rods go on the door. Most of the glass display doors out there are Anthony/Ardco/Displayrite (all the same company), a few others are Hussmann doors, and even less are Styline glass display doors. You will need the following information to replace the glass display door closer:

  • Ardco – You’re in luck there is only one door kit or frame kit that fits all Ardco Display Doors.
  • Anthony – You need to know if your base of your torque rod is hex (like a stop sign) or round, the W/O # off of the top frame of the door, the date of manufacture (DOM), and the model number.
  • Displayrite – You’re in luck there is only one door closer/torque rod for displayrite.
  • Hussmann – You need to have the model, serial number, and date of manufacture.
  • Styleline –  You need to have the model, serial number, and date of manufacture.
