The Barrier Glider cold storage door is a high-speed, bi-parting door that is ideal for refrigerated warehouses, food manufacturing/processing plants, grocery distribution centers, and other facilities that require strict environmental control.

The door features a patented Thermal-Flex sealing system that 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./sec when opening and 30 in./sec when closing.

Barrier Glider panels range in size from 6 x 8 ft up to 12 by 20 ft. They are available with optional 14- by 32-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.
