I’m looking for something that’ll help insulate my keezer door. What’s everyone out there using to this? Here’s a picture of my setup

I primed then painted with 100% acrylic paint, then bonded some 1" thick high-R rigid foam board to it...

Cheers!

[edit] fwiw, some folks just slap a section of FRP sheet on and call it done :)

Yup, go to your local big box hardware and pick up some 1" foam, either the white stuff or the pink stuff. Get some Gorilla glue and glue to the door. Gorilla glue works great with the foam. I have done tests for a camper project and it holds really well.

And top whatever you do with something reflective like aluminum foil facing inwards. If it reflects light it also reflects heat.

Pick the right rigid insulation and it'll come foil wrapped both sides...

Cheers!

I insulated my keezer collar with XPS and clad it with uPVC. Gorilla glue mainly. Finished with 'bathroom' silicone sealant. Dogs bollocks really. I still get to use it as a freezer, if needed. Pretty sure it works great on a fridge project too 👍

What freezer is that with the stainless interior? My frigidaire is popping rust spots after about 5 years.
