“We have saved a lot of energy in our cold store, the compressors run a lot less.” St Merryn Engineering Manager

When asked about their overall impression of Clark Door St Merryn manager said:

“110% effort from service engineer and being kept in loop by service office.”

When asked if our customer would use us again the response was;

“Yes, the Coldmaster door is bang on!”

The Clark Coldmaster features a unique patented horizontal air curtain which operates to prevent cold air leaving the cold store and warm air from entering the cold store. When closed the fabric curtains form a vestibule to insulate the doors. In a busy cold store environment, the Clark Coldmaster is an ideal solution as a cold room door.

In independent tests, Coldmaster’s air curtain was found to reduce refrigerated air losses by 60%-70%. This means that a cold store operator fitting a Clark Coldmaster can now reduce their refrigeration air losses by up to ⅔rds with associated cost saving and operational efficiencies of:

  • Lower refrigeration compressor loads due to less warm air to cool
  • Reduced defrost cycles on evaporator coils due to lower icing
  • Lower ice removal costs for taking ice off ceilings and cold store walls and floors
  • Improved health and safety environment with dry loading bay and ice free cold store floors.
