Rite-Hite: Cold Storage Door

The Barrier Glider® Cold Storage Door by Rite-Hite is a high-speed, bi-parting door that is ideal for refrigerated warehouses, manufacturing/processing plants, distribution centers and other facilities that require strict environmental control.

 

The door features Rite-Hite’s patented Thermal-Flex Sealing System, which provides a heated perimeter sealing design. Flexible Iso-Tek® panels are 3 in. thick and rated R-10.

 

The trolley assembly is constructed of heavy-gauge round tubing and uses hourglass-shaped rollers so the panel can rotate on the track for impactability (the ability to absorb a strike). As a safety feature, the panels automatically reverse when they encounter an obstruction.

 

Safety is also enhanced (and heat transfer reduced) by the Barrier Glider’s fast operating speeds. Powered by a 1 HP AC motor, it moves at up to 80 in./second when opening and 30 in./second when closing.

 

Barrier Glider panels range in size from 6x8-ft up to 12x-20-ft. They are available with optional 14x32-in. vision panels for increased visibility and safety.

 

The Barrier Glider comes standard with the Rite-Hite Graphic User Interface (GUI) door control panel. The 7-in. LCD touchscreen interface displays real-time door status and allows workers to troubleshoot settings without personal protective equipment by eliminating arc flash.
