    Walk in freezer door closer problem

    On a combination walk in cooler/freezer the freezer door panel that door closer is attached to flexes out about Ό” when opening the door. This causes the closure not to reset every time. I considered just bolting the panel/closer through the through the door with nylon or ss bolts but thought condensation could be a problem. Any advice?
    Thanks MK

    Fill the holes with food grade silicone, then stick the bolts through.

    Use SS bolts for sure, then silicone the hole and stick the bolt through, seal it on both sides. you should be good.

    Use Nylon bolts. (Low thermal conductivity)
    SS or all thread will likely sweat and/or ice.

    Or be creative. Use the stainless bolts and add an anti-sweat heater.
