Controlling Cold Storage & Cooler 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 Fast-Fold® Freezer 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.
