Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0838180A2] The appliance consists of a multitude of separate boxes, with doors, enclosed within an insulated casing with an outer door, which when closed operates spring-loaded plungers on each inner door, closing them. The refrigerated compartments (1-3) have doors (1'-3') within a heat insulated enclosure (32) with an overall door (30) which closes against a magnetic sealing strip (50). Sprung plunger assemblies (13,23,33), also serving as handles, attached to each inner door are depressed by the inside surface of the outer door, when closed, and held in a sealed closure condition.
