Roller-shutter doors are commonly seen in commercial or industrial settings where large areas must be chilled and kept cool, but where traffic is high, making it necessary for a specialist door system that will keep the temperature down but will not impede traffic flow and movement of material. In busy chilled environments, roller-shutter doors are the perfect choice thanks to offering the following benefits:
High Speed Operation
Commercial roller-shutter doors are designed to open and close quickly, preventing any unnecessary loss of heat while still allowing easy transport and movement of people and material through the facility. The commercial roller-shutter doors available from MTcss are all available with an electric motor which allows easy and rapid operation, with gears allowing a controlled descent of the curtain and a manual override which lets operators work the door manually, if need be. However, manual use of the roller-shutter is much slower, making it less efficient for insulation and allowing easy transport through the area, so it should be used only when necessary.
As a steel-based door curtain, the roller-shutter doors from the MTcss Fire Resistant range are able to quickly close to seal off a fire area, and are constructed from interlocking galvanised steel bars, with galvanised steel coil casing and flame trap fascia provided to slow the spread of flames and prevent them rising too high. When closed, a steel fire resistant roller-shutter door is able to provide up to two hours of fire protection, up to a size of 7000mmx7000mm.
A roller-shutter door is the ideal door option for a chilled area or freezer area which experiences heavy traffic. Where other door types may take long periods of time to open or close, compromising the insulation of the chiller, roller-shutter doors open only as high as they are required and move quickly, without generating a draft. This allows them to preserve the insulation properties of the chiller even when the door is in operation!
When closed, roller-shutter doors provide excellent insulation, helping to save energy and keep the chiller cool.
A high speed insulated roller shutter door is a great choice for the access to a building, where a combination of fast, easy movement, great insulation and security are required. External roller-shutter doors can provide all of these features, with electrically-operated motors which facilitate quick opening and closing, steel curtains and locks which provide excellent security and industry gold standard insulation to maintain the internal temperature.
These high-speed roller shutters can be installed with automatic opening and closing, or with a smart control interface to allow maximum efficiency and security.
When comes to efficiency and cost effectiveness in chilled rooms and buildings, it’s hard to beat roller shutters. With electric motors quickly opening and closing them, roller shutters keep the flow of traffic through the area moving, facilitating transport and preventing delays, while their superior insulation and quick turnaround time makes sure that your electricity bills stay as low as possible.
With maximum draught prevention, and low maintenance needs, roller-shutter doors help to keep your operation as cost-effective as it can be!
