High-quality refrigeration unit door solutions with maximum transparency and minimum weight
CoolStar doors are made from double-walled acrylic glass without frames and with a scratch-resistant coating
Rotterdam, December 2015
CoolStar doors for refrigeration units are a revolutionary global innovation, as until now, the sector has been dominated by insulating glass doors. The new CoolStar doors, which are made from high-quality double-walled acrylic glass, are completely shatterproof, frameless and have a scratch-resistant coating. Another very important advantage of the new acrylic glass CoolStar insulating doors is that they are very lightweight; acrylic glass only weighs half of what the previously-used glass does! With CoolStar doors, comprehensive energy savings up to 50% can be made and the ambiance of the area of cooling within the supermarket is significantly improved.
All DoubleCOOL products are made from individually cast acrylic sheets. The raw material is a liquid petroleum product called a 'monomer'. In order to produce end products such as windows or doors from sheets of acrylic glass, the sheets must first be heated before they can be pressed into the required shape using a moulding press. Later, they are stuck together to achieve a double-walled insulating effect. The most stringent quality controls are carried out on the production process as a whole.
The advantages of the CoolStar doors at a glance are:
• Maximum transparency thanks to completely frameless, insulating acrylic doors
• Guaranteed scratch resistance thanks to the use of a new specially developed coating
• Flexible and individually finished for the retrofit market, an appropriate OEM is used for each refrigeration unit
• Above-average, material-specific light intensity in the unit makes it easier to view products
• 10% more transparent than glass, allowing food to be presented more attractively
• All CoolStar doors are 100% recyclable
The doors' tremendous stability and the much higher break resistance of the material in comparison to conventional glass are additional advantages that are not only characteristic of CoolStar doors, but also instantly guarantee unrivalled quality and product features.
