The brand formerly known as Ardco is now known as the Swlingline model of Anthony. For the purposes of this article, we will refer to them as Ardco gaskets. In this article, we will cover the types of Ardco door gaskets you may find and need for your commercial refrigeration system, the different sizes of gaskets, and which one you may need to purchase based on the door you have and if you need one replaced.

Ardco (Swingline) offers a wide range of sizes for your commercial refrigerator and freezer based on the width and length of the door. Ardco gaskets are sold and found by determining the dimensions of the door that they go on, regardless of if it’s a 3-sided door that needs a 3-sided gasket or a 4-sided door that needs a 4-sided gasket.

How to Know Which Ardco Door Gasket You Need

When searching for a new Ardco door gasket, how will you know which one is the one you need?

The best way to order is by determining the outside dimensions of the door being serviced. Use those dimensions when ordering your gasket.

Another way to find the right door gasket is to find and review its tag, usually located on the top of the door itself, NOT the door frame. Its B/M number works as a serial number to gather parts information. If you do not see a tag, get the outside dimensions of the door and take a picture of the gasket.
