High – speed door for cold storage: a valuable asset in cold – room

We’ll start this article by exploring what high – speed doors are, and why they are essential. Then, we’ll examine examples of improper use of cold – room door. Finally, we’ll go into how a high – speed door for cold storage helps the sliding cold-room door to last longer.

What is high – speed door?

High-speed doors are door systems, mainly used in industrial applications. Its durable construction provides higher operating speed, and they can sustain a higher number of opening and closing cycles and require lower maintenance and repair cost. Thanks to its vertical movement have minimal installation space requirements.

Examples of high – speed doors:

Most people who run a cold-room business have noticed that poor use of cold-room doors can be a reason for costly damages.

How could a high – speed door for cold storage help the sliding cold-room door to last longer?

The answer is simple: the high – speed door works instead of the sliding cold-room door. 

In high-speed refrigeration, doors work to best ensure the most comprehensive maintenance of temperature in a refrigerator through the latest technologies available. Technologies designed for this sector blocks the temperature transition from zone to zone. In this case, it is crucial for the flexibility and rapidity of high-speed doors.

Most importantly, installing a rapid-roll door behind a cold-room sliding door can save up to 1000$ per door per year.
