ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems unveiled an automatic door for refrigerated trucks and trailers. The MD2000 automated reefer door opens quickly, electronically senses the presence of workers and cargo passing through, and quickly closes once the passage is clear.
The door will help streamline the food delivery process and ensure a constant temperature and humidity barrier for reefer interiors. The door was designed for refrigerator and freezer applications and has been tested and validated to operate at 0 degrees Fahrenheit.
The door can be installed on the face of a reefer’s interior wall by OEMs or retrofit on existing trailers within just a few hours.
The 42-inch to 50 1/2-inch-wide doorway space remains obstacle free, and when closed, the door creates a tight seal around its periphery. The flexible door features a large clear window panel and a soft bottom edge, and retracts if it encounters any resistance, protecting delivery workers and eliminating potential damage to cargo.
