Ryterna latest product – 80 mm thick insulated panels for sectional doors. Robust panels have perfect 0.28 W/m²K insulation. We gave ‘Ultra-Thermo’ name for doors made of 80 mm thick panels. Stunning 0.5 W/m²K overall U-value is one of the best on the market.
In the beginning, we designed ‘Ultra-Thermo’ Industrial doors for heated or refrigerated premises. The available range of widths up to 8 metres and heights up to 6 metres allow matching the most demanding specifications.
Glazed ‘Ultra-Thermo’ Panels
As a refinement, we started developing glazed panels with proper thermal insulation. Many businesses use the benefits of glazed doors to showcase their products and services. However, standard glazed doors due to their construction have poor thermal insulation. So, there was always a question: beauty or efficiency.
We took part in the ‘Aviation Academy’ project with glazed ‘Ultra-Thermo’ sectional door installation. Architects sent the enquiry for glazed sectional door 6 metres wide and 7 metres high. They needed the door to move a flight simulator into the building.
As you know, a simulator is a highly complex and sophisticated machine. Therefore, there are strict regulations for ambient temperature and humidity. As a result, architects presented quite a long list of specifications.
We decided to offer our newly developed 80 mm thick glazed ‘Ultra-Thermo’ panels featuring with scratch-proof triple glazing and 30 mm thick thermal break. In addition, we fit the whole perimeter with improved double rubber sealing.
Due to headroom limitations, we made custom-designed door tracks. The only solution for that size door and very low headroom was to use a direct drive system. Usually, sectional door balance and smooth operation are achieved by torsion springs. Direct drive means that the gear has no torsion springs and the cables are wound on a 6-inch diameter shaft driven by a 3-phase electric motor. Above all, the door is equipped with safety edges for easy and safe operation.
We painted the door to match the building façade colour. In addition to better appearance, we powder coated zinc hardware in white to match the interior.
Finally, we managed to achieve an overall U-value = 1.9 W/m²·K which is incomparably better than the same design of conventional 40 mm thick sectional glazed door.
Consequently ‘Ultra-Thermo’ 80 mm thick glazed sectional door is a perfect choice if you want to showcase your business and save on energy costs. It could be a perfect choice for showrooms, workshops, services, car dealerships or even cafes.
