The Importance Of Insulated Refrigeration Doors

With the ever increasing cost of electricity, the proper selection of insulated refrigeration doors in California is extremely important for the overall efficiency of the facility. Obviously when it comes to choosing an insulated door for a cold storage facility they have to be the correct type and size to accommodate traffic and to maintain the interior temperature. It is extremely important that the doors open and close automatically and that they are fitted with efficient seals. A door that is well sealed and only open for the minimum amount of time will keep the cold in the room and the heat out.

Standard entry doors:

There are two different styles of standard entry swing doors; doors that overlap the frame when closed and doors that fit flush with the frame when closed. As standard insulated refrigeration doors in California are primarily designed for pedestrian traffic or at most, hand trucks or pallet jacks, they are commonly produced in 36 and 60 inch widths. In situations where there is a great deal of traffic going in and out of the refrigerated unit or the choice of materials handling equipment is a fork truck, sliding doors are the better choice.

Glass doors:
