When it comes to preserving the cold-chain integrity of products in the distribution cycle, managing and controlling the climates of products is integral to your business and reputation. Regulatory agencies have been cracking down in recent years – especially the FDA with the implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) in 2011, and the implementation of the 2017 FDA Food Code. The scrutiny of inspectors has become more and more strict, and this trend is set to continue into the foreseeable future.  Along with the increasing demands of regulatory agencies, consumer expectations have risen, and in today’s competitive market it has become more important than ever to protect your company’s product integrity and reputation. Although expectations for cold-chain integrity and food and beverage handling have risen, these expectations may be effectively met while also reducing the high costs of cooling cold-storage facilities by minimizing cooling loss and properly separating and controlling environments within your facility.

Cold Storage Solutions

FasTrax™ FR Highspeed Door

We are proud to offer a line of high-speed cold storage doors, adaptable to a variety of Fastrax FR high speed doordifferent applications and configurations – doors which effectively separate and control environments within your warehouse, while enhancing the safety of both pedestrians and forklift drivers within your facility. As we like to say, “doors are meant to be closed.” This means, especially in cold storage applications, doors must be shut as much as possible and as quickly as possible in order to cut operational costs of cooling, and to protect the integrity of products.

Our FasTrax™ FR Highspeed Door provides a perfect solution – insulating product and operating at high speeds, while improving safety and communications at access points within your facility. Like the rest of the FasTrax door line we offer, the FasTrax FR highspeed freezer door is constructed with a soft bottom-edge curtain and Soft Breakaway™ technology which leads the industry in allowing safe impactability. Additionally, the FasTrax™ FR leads the industry in operating speeds of up to 100’’ per second – ensuring that even in busy traffic areas, your freezer environments are separated and controlled – providing energy savings from increased cooling efficiency while also protecting your products. The door’s curtain system combines unique Thermal-Flex Sealing with the R-4 InsulMax curtain construction to ensure energy savings and efficiency in the most demanding applications. These doors’ low-profile, versatile track design allows for track configurations to fit nearly all possible situations.

Barrier Glider™ Freezer Door

Another solution is our unique bi-parting Barrier Glider™ Freezer Door. Like barrier glider freezer doorthe FasTrax, the Barrier Glideris built with safe, impactable, auto-reversing technology.
