Assa Abloy Entrance Systems announced what it called the industry’s first automatic door for refrigerated trucks and trailers.

The door was specifically designed for refrigerator and freezer applications and has been tested and validated to operate at zero degrees Fahrenheit, according to the company.

The Peachtree Ga.-based company noted its automated reefer door opens with “lightning speed,” electronically senses the presence of workers and cargo passing through, and quickly closes once the passage is clear.

The door can be installed on the face of a reefer’s interior wall by trailer makers or retrofitted on existing trailers within just a few hours, and Assa Abloy reported it will send technicians to train qualified customers on proper installation and service techniques.

The system comes with its own plug-and-play modular wiring harness kit, and all cables and connectors remain accessible at the point of use for easy service and maintenance. — Transport Topics
