Our innovative Temperature Controlled Door solution

As the market for Automated Industrial Doors continues to flourish, the demand for high-tech temperature controlled doors has risen accordingly.

Businesses requiring temperature-critical storage as part of their working processes have called on the sector to produce more effective solutions, requiring innovative insulated door systems that offer high performance in essential temperature controlled environments.

At UK Rapid Door Systems we have responded to these requirements by developing and manufacturing The ICE Freezer Door, a versatile model that has been created with the latest technology and offers a simple, high speed mechanism that is perfect for industrial cold store environments.

Suited for applications as varied as food and beverage processing to below zero cold storage units, the ICE system offers a range of great specifications that make it highly effective and cost effective.


The ICE door performs and maintains temperatures between +70 °C and -30°C, incorporating a twin skin 900g/m2 fabric curtain set 230mm apart with an integral heating system – ensuring there is no ice buildup.

Designed with tailored manufacture in mind, the ICE door system is available in made to measure sizes up to 4000mm wide x 5000mm high, with the efficiency of the system ensuring that far fewer defrost cycles will be required, reducing the running costs of even the largest cold store unit.

An economic and cost effective system, The ICE Freeze Door offers a high speed function that reduces the amount of time that doors are open for,  minimising the expensive energy costs associated with maintain sub zero temperatures.

Because we understand that day-to-day performance is key, this bold design also incorporates an innovative self-repairing system should the curtain become dislodged through impact. In this event the ICE door has been designed to regain a correct working position with a single one open and closing cycle, reducing downtime and further empathising its energy efficient credentials.
