Industrial refrigeration can be a big undertaking, with large-scale cooling solutions and powerful demands on energy, space and effort to keep your chilled area at the right temperature and provide the right results for your business.
However, all of this investment and equipment may be for nothing if you don’t have a well-insulated industrial door. Many industrial refrigeration efforts are caught out by this seemingly small feature, but without proper insulated doors, a weak point appears in the insulation of your chilled area, allowing heat to enter and refrigerated air to escape.
Why You Need Industrial Insulated Doors
The three ways in which a chilled industrial area loses its cool and loses efficiency are conduction, convection and radiation. Convection involves the movement of warm and cold air, and is stopped outright by a door or barrier, whether or not that door is insulated.
However, the other two heat transfer methods can only be defeated by specially insulated doors. Conduction is the transfer of heat through solid materials, which is an obvious weakness of an uninsulated door, while radiation is more of an issue once the door itself has warmed up. An insulated industrial door will resist this, but an ordinary door will quickly heat through via conduction and begin to radiate heat into your cold room – combat this with proper investment in insulation.
How Industrial Insulated Doors Can Help You
A set of insulated industrial doors can help to protect your refrigerated warehouse from energy loss and compromised insulation by providing a physical barrier between the chilled area and the ambient surroundings. This barrier is equipped with proper thermal insulation, making it able to resist heat radiation and conduction, preserving the inside temperature of the chiller much more effectively than a non-insulated barrier could. Some of the industrial doors available from MT Cold Storage Solutions can even come equipped with refrigeration functions of their own, which will not only insulate your wares, but even add to the overall cooling capability of your cold room.
In addition to this, an often-overlooked benefit of specially-made industrial doors is that they are engineered to reduce energy lost during opening and closing, with industrial roller-shutter doors and other industrial door systems in stock at Every Cooling Solution designed to open and close quickly, without causing large air disturbances or drawing in warmer air which could raise the temperature of your cold room and force your chiller units to work harder.
With all these advantages in mind, it’s clear that an insulated industrial door will be an investment worth making for your business. Without that chink in your thermal armour, your cold rooms and refrigerated industrial areas will be that much more efficient, cost-effective and secure.
