Controlling Cold Storage Temperatures, Traffic and Costs
The primary challenge for dry, refrigerated and frozen food distributors is control — controlling the environment, controlling traffic, and controlling costs. With these concerns in mind, Rytec introduced the very first high-speed folding door for the cold storage industry over 30 years ago and remains in firm control of cold storage doors today. Since introducing the now retired Fast-Fold® door, Rytec has expanded this line of cold room doors to address all aspects of food preparation and storage, from meat cutting to banana ripening.
Temperature and Environmental Control
- High-speed opening and closing minimizes air exchange
- Effective perimeter seals, thermal breaks and thermal panel help maintain temperature differentials
- Perfect for coolers, freezers, dry storage, produce, automated storage/retrieval, blast freezers and USDA/FDA processing
Reduced Energy and Maintenance Costs
- Less air infiltration leads to lower refrigeration costs
- State-of-the-art insulated panels eliminate the need for conventional defrost systems in many cases
- Self-repair, break-away, and resetting options help reduce maintenance costs
Common Cold Storage Environments
- Refrigerated/Freezer Warehousing
- Food Processing
- Food Distribution
- Other Temperature-Sensitive Applications
Cold Storage Case Study
Rytec helped Dade Service Corporation install doors at a national grocery retailer’s central distribution facility.
