Stay Cool: Thermally Insulated Doors for Warehouses and Cold Stores

Posted on 04/05/2018 Thermally insulated door

The Mayday bank holiday looks set to be the hottest on record. That’s great news for staycationers and sunworshippers. However, if you own a warehouse that stores fresh produce, you’re more likely to keep an uneasy eye on the thermometer as the mercury rises. Keeping cool means running air conditioning units and refrigerators. When you’re paying for all that extra energy to make an environment cold – you want to keep it cold. That means good insulation everywhere – including the doors.

Decotherm Doors from Hormann

At Cooks Industrial Doors, we supply and install Decotherm doors from Hormann. The slats on these doors are double skinned steel or aluminium filled with an insulating polyurethane foam. Other benefits include:

  • Opening speed of up to 1.1m/sec.
  • Only 80mm side space requirement for all door sizes.
  • New metal holders with polyamide sliding surfaces mean less wear on the door curtain.
  • PVDD curtain cover protects the door barrel from dirt and adverse weather effects.
  • L pads on the curtain interior keep noise to a minimum.
  • Safety lights in the side grille.

Insulated doors will help keep your warehouse a constant temperature whatever the weather outside. Automated systems that open quickly will minimise temperature change when the door is in use.
