Top 4 Common Use Insulated Cold Room Industrial DoorsCold Room And Cold Truck Related Services August 22, 2022
Cold rooms maintain relative temperatures for perishable items, food items, or pharmaceutical products such as vaccines and injections that require specific temperatures.
A cold room door is a closed room and a type of refrigerator designed to produce temperatures as low as the freezing point. It is to ensure there is no air and water leak or bacteria infection.
The primary function of cold room doors is to provide thermal insulation for the doorway through which products are loaded and unloaded. It will prevent any ice from forming up along the door frames. The doors must withstand the temperature and workload in the refrigerated chambers.
The main factors to consider when selecting an industrial cold room door are the environment, safety, energy and efficiency, design, and the industry itself.
Let's take a look at some examples of cold room doors.
1. Insulated Panel Door
The design of insulated panel doors typically follows the size of the door business operations. Examples are a single swing door, double swing door or automatic sliding door. These doors often include a frame heater function to prevent cold rooms from icing up (freezing and becoming inoperable).
Insulated doors are low-cost and environmentally friendly because they are energy efficient. It is the least expensive refrigerated door when compared to others.
2. High Speed Door
High speed doors are common in high-traffic warehouses where they are automated; when a forklift passes by, it opens automatically; when another forklift passes through, it closes. It also prevents heat from entering a cold room by reducing the frequency with which they open.
There are several benefits of using high speed doors, such as security, ease of access, energy efficiency, cleanliness and reducing noise pollution.
3. Overhead Sectional Door
The overhead sectional doors are available in loading bays. The door is made with an insulated panel and rolls up during unloading and loading. It has a dynamic balance system, allowing both sides of the doors to move up and down as a whole along the guide rail. It has the properties of durability, heat preservation, and space saving.
Due to its efficiency in regulating temperature, food manufacturing plants, food storage warehouses, and retail outlets usually use this industrial cold room door.
4. Curtain Type
Strip doors, also referred to as strip curtains, PVC strips, or industrial freezer curtains, are frequently used in cooler and freezer applications. The primary advantage of plastic strip curtains is their ability to regulate temperature. They perform a similar function to traditional doors in that they prevent air from different rooms, which may be at a different temperature, from mixing.
Due to its various benefits, factories, restaurants, and auto body shops use this type of industrial door.
Because of the various types of industrial cold room doors ranging in designs, prices, and materials used, it is best to consult a professional to ensure that you select the best door for your warehouse operations.
The general suggestions are:
swinging doors for small doorways for a person's passage
sliding doors for large halls that require intensive operation
vertical doors as a last resort when other types of doors cannot be installed or operated
