Cold Stop provides a cost effective thermal barrier to the ambient air when a door is left open or in use. It reduces the duty on evaporator equipment allowing optimum settings to quickly achieve an internal working temperature and, says the company, has proven energy savings of up to 33% in freezers.
A fireproof version of the Tempro thermal material is now made and is included in all the Tempro product range to BS5867 Pt2:1980 Type B using BS 5438: 1076 Test standard.
SMI also now offers Cold-Stop with Bio-Gard vision panels consisting of a 2mm thick PVC with Di Iso-hexyl Phthalate Plasticisers that is said to kill 99% of all illnesscausing pathogenic bacteria. The same thermal standards and all other aspects of Cold-Stop remain the same.
