Differences between chilled and freezer cold storage doors

Differences between chilled and freezer cold storage doors

One of the most important factors in industries such as food or pharmaceuticals is the correct choice of chilled doors, in order to achieve a perfect seal, guarantee the correct conservation of sensitive products and maintain the cold chain, thus preventing diseases such as listeriosis.

However, a common question arises: can I use the same doors for chilled and freezing cold rooms, and what are the differences between the two?

In this post, we give answers to these questions that sometimes arise when installing chilled doors.

Temperature differences between chilled and freezing:

Before knowing whether the same door is suitable for chilled cold rooms or freezing cold rooms, we need to know the difference between them. Chilled cold rooms maintain a positive temperature, generally between 0°C and 10°C, while freezing cold rooms operate at sub-zero temperatures, down to -20°C.

Adapt to different needs: chilled VS freezing.

To whether we can use the same doors for a chilled cold room as for a freezing cold room or vice versa, the answer is no. While most of Kavidoors cold storage doors models can be adapted to both environments, there are fundamental differences that require variations to ensure optimum performance, such as the thickness of the door leaf.

For chilled doors intended for positive temperatures, their thickness ranges from 60 to 80 mm. For those that will be installed in freezing cold rooms and that have to guarantee a temperature down to -20°, the thickness will increase to 80, 100 or 120 mm, the last two being more common.
