Pull-out freezers are a real challenge for rolled steel, roll-up doors and even fabric doors, and temperatures are usually between -10 ° F (-23 ° C) on the inside and below freezing temperatures of -30 to -40 ° F (-34 to -40 ° C) on the outside.
These low temperatures are necessary to ensure that the products remain frozen during transportation abroad. Unfortunately, such temperatures also cause frost problems on conventional doors. Blocking the doors and frosting the panels causes headaches and risks to the safety of the operator.
