To meet the requirements for hygiene and temperature stability in the food industry, sara LBS has developed the Rapid Food Door. Designed to give controlled access into or close off production, washing and storage areas, or to provide entry/exit to transport areas, the Rapid Food Door sets high standards for hygiene, efficiency and user safety, while providing rapid opening and closing to help maintain consistent temperatures throughout the food processing environment.

The Rapid Food Door is designed for fast opening and closing to ensure constant temperatures can be easily maintained in sensitive areas. The entire door, side frames, top roll and motor cover, and the bottom profile are made of V2A stainless steel, compatible with standard washdown procedures and aggressive cleaning agents. Smooth surfaces ensure there is nowhere for dirt and debris to accumulate. The side frames are hinged to enable thorough cleaning and disinfecting of internal areas, and the side frames are open at the bottom so that cleaning fluids and water can completely run off, eliminating the possibility of dirt and debris being trapped inside. A gutter on the bottom profile prevents liquids from the curtain from dripping into the clean opening.

The door has a curtain of clear PVC with vertical reinforcement stripes. An FDA-tested PVC curtain with white reinforcement stripes is also available.

The door is powered by a geared brake motor, which can be fitted on either the right or left side. For increased hygiene, the door can be equipped with a stainless steel motor and barrel cover, with the barrel cover hinged for cleaning purposes. As standard, the door is equipped with an electrical safety contact edge and a door line photocell to ensure user safety. Optionally, a pre-running safety photocell can be installed instead of the electrical contact edge. In the event of interruption or a power failure, the door can be opened manually using a crank handle.
