Clean room door

February 7, 2013

Meeting USDA and FDA standards for cleanup, the Rite-Hite FasTrax clean room door features a 1-piece radial header machined from a solid block of UHMW plastic. The door’s fabric is a smooth polypropylene, which resists acids and bases. The door operates at a speed of 100 in./sec. If bumped or impacted, it reconfigures itself to get back onto the door track. Non-corrosive Lexan and UHMW side frames stand off from the wall to minimize surface-to-surface contact. The door’s tapered bottom edge allows water to run off to the side to reduce the chance of water dripping on products. The door can be used in washdown, high-wind and cooler or freezer high-cycle applications.
