cold_stop_latestTempro® from SMI is one of the most thermally efficient and lightweight insulation materials available today. Tempro® is extensively used as a thermal barrier in SMI’s Cold Stop®, which is a revolutionary alternative to the old plastic strip curtains traditionally used in cold rooms and freezers to save energy and CO2.

Cold Stop® provides a cost effective thermal barrier to the ambient air when a door is left open or in use. Cold Stop® reduces the duty on evaporator equipment, allowing optimum settings to quickly achieve an internal working temperature and has proven energy savings of up to 33% in freezers.

SMI announces that a fireproof version of their famous Tempro® thermal material has been manufactured for the last three months and is now included in all its Tempro® product range to BS5867 Pt2:1980 Type B using BS 5438: 1076 Test standard.

In addition to this significant advance; SMI can now offer Cold Stop®, which was conceived over twenty years ago, with Bio-Gard vision panels consisting of a 2mm thick PVC with Di Iso-hexyl Phthalate Plasticisers that kill 99% of all illness causing pathogenic bacteria. The same high thermal standards and all other aspects of Cold Stop remain the same.

SMI continuously strives to improve the quality and performance of its products by adding value without passing the cost to their valued customers. These advantages are now available.

The Cold Stop range includes the wrap around ‘D’ edge, ‘P’ profile edge as well as the popular flat weld in High Gloss and Matt finish in various strengths, all in 300mm, 350mm and 470mm widths. Vision panels can be single below 2.85mm high and double above. Door heights can be accommodated from 2.1m to 4m high as standard but higher openings can be made to order.

Apart from the popular ex-stock flat design SMI also produces Swallow Tail split curtains and crumple zone concertina types.

Headers can be supplied in the original patented rail and hook system for extra safety or Flat-Head. All metals are rust resistant and plastics are stable in freezing conditions. Headers are placed at a height above the door to permit the bottom cut off of the sweep to the floor to be maximised, but allows for the curtains to stretch in use.

Cold Stop curtains, like other Tempro® products, can be repaired to improve longevity and recycled when repair is uneconomical.
