Sealed Cabinet Doors
Ideas for sealing cabinet doors for airtightness. December 28, 2005
How I can make a cabinet door with a seal on it, to keep an air temperature inside the cabinet different from the room temperature?
From contributor A:
You could mount some steel strips on the back of your door, making it look nice if you need to. Then using a magnetic seal similar to one found on a refrigerator,like the Pemko 351 CM which is for meeting door seals but could be adapted. This would give you a good seal so that you could have separate temperatures efficiently.
From contributor B:
You can also get edgebanding with integral weatherstripping if you are dealing with Euro boxes. I got these items from Louis and Company.
From contributor C:
Some of the high end European and Canadian cabinets have seals on all doors.
