In February 2019 we’ve launched a new cold-room door that has its blade and frame profiles made of PVC. The reaction of the market has exceeded our expectations. And together with inquiries and orders, we have received many questions on different topics. So in this post, we will shed light on the main advantages of using a PVC cold – room door in your cold storages. In addition, you will see which characteristics make PVC so useful in commercial cold-rooms.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF USING A PVC FRAME OF COLD-ROOM DOOR VS A METAL ONE?
The main advantages of using a PVC frame versus a metal one:
- PVC avoids the transmission of heat and cold, by its nature, PVC breaks thermal bridges;
- Breaking the thermal bridge has the countless advantage in refrigeration. The most important: it prevents condensation and ice formation;
- PVC is hygienic: it minimizes the proliferation of bacteria and other dangerous micro-organisms;
- PVC is resistant to rust: no matter how wet the environment is, PVC does not oxidize.
- Last but not least: PVC is much lighter than metal!
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING A PVC COLD-ROOM DOOR?
A cold-room door that is made with PVC blade profiles could be till 50% lighter than a cold-room door with a metallic frame. What does it mean practically?
First, it can be shipped and installed more easily. In other words, you save money on transport and installation.
Second, a lighter cold-room door means that its hinges or its rail can last longer. Therefore, your business occurs less maintenance costs.
Furthermore, if damaged, the cold – room door made with PVC profiles can be repaired very quickly, because of our unique production process that does not require welding.
IS A COLD-ROOM DOOR MADE WITH PVC PROFILES STRONG ENOUGH?
Can a PVC cold-room door resist as a metal one does? The cold-room door made with PVC profiles is strong and can resist even better than a metal one does.
Firstly, because we extruded our high-quality PVC with the most modern technology, it is incredibly straight and rigid.
Secondly, because the thickness and density of our PVC profiles are high so that it can withstand loads without losing its straightness.
Moreover, our PVC complies with the highest product standards, to ensure that no deformation or discoloration occurs during its usage.
Finally, we are so confident about the high quality of the PVC frame of the cold-room door, that we have decided to offer trials to our customers. In this way, they can be sure that they won’t regret using PVC profiles to build their cold-room doors, instead of metallic ones.
