Rytec Introduces New Turbo-Seal Insulated Door
Jackson, WI (January 15, 2010) With a peak speed of 182” per second, Rytec Corporation has introduced the fastest insulated roll door available for cold storage and refrigerated warehouses. The new Turbo-Seal® Insulated door offers the highest average opening speed with the lowest cost of operation—all without a heated defrost system.
Environmental control is critical in the cold storage industry. Quality suffers if temperatures fluctuate or if ice forms on the product. Frost and ice can also create a safety hazard due to slippery floors and poor visibility. As a result, productivity is often hindered, especially when moving material. Compounding the issue, refrigeration systems must work overtime to compensate for the infiltration of air and the heat from conventional heated defrost systems on high-speed doors.
Exceptional thermal performance combined with unrivaled sealing technology enable the Turbo-Seal Insulated door to operate virtually frost-free without heaters. Rytec’s exclusive one-inch thick, closed-cell foam, Rilon™ Thermal panel is non-porous and moisture-proof. Quad Seals™ in the side columns and integrated thermal breaks in the door frame substantially reduce air infiltration and heat conduction. Because it performs day in, day out without a heated defrost system, it saves thousands of dollars in operational costs annually compared to doors with heated defrost systems. By reducing energy costs over 90%, the Turbo-Seal Insulated reshapes the performance expectations of the cold storage industry.
“Our new Turbo-Seal Insulated door is a game-changer. It is the only insulated, high performance roll door on the market that actually reduces energy use through better thermal performance. It’s unique - no heated blowers, no heated seals, no heat tape or heat lamps," said Kurt Angermeier, Vice-President of Marketing, Rytec Corporation.
The Turbo-Seal Insulated door's other special features include the advanced System 3® door controller, Ry-Wi™ wireless technology, threshold warning lights and a fully-automatic self-repairing system. In the rare case a door is hit by a forklift, the self-repair system automatically restores and resets the door in just seconds without any human intervention.
With over 100,000 doors in operation worldwide, Rytec Corporation is the nation’s leading manufacturer of high-speed, high-performance doors for industrial, commercial, pharmaceutical and cold-storage environments.
