What's New/Best Seller Stainless Steel DOORJET Heater.
Advantages/Features The DOORJET resists wet, corrosive environments typically found at car washes, outdoor loading docks and platforms, maintenance facilities and warehouses. Supplied completely assembled and factory tested prior to shipment, the heater's critical system components feature stainless steel watertight enclosure with all gas and electrical controls pre-wired and sealed, stainless steel casing with reinforcing angle rings, and stainless steel burner baffle. The DOORJET produces a high-velocity "jet" of heated air that is directed automatically toward outside bay doors as they open. The heat surge tempers the in-rushing cold air, keeping employees working in the area comfortable. When the door closes, the heater safely shuts down. In car wash applications, DOORJET heaters can also be placed at vehicle drying stations to increase the efficiency of the drying cycle. Also, energy is saved as a building's heating system can maintain its normal operation without having to compensate for sudden cold airbursts. Models are available with input ratings from 550,000 to 950,000 Btu/hour to accommodate most building requirements.

The conclusions of this study confirmed that the two-stage infrared heating system saved 23% over a conventional forced-air system.

These optional units can be installed on new doors as well as be retrofitted for existing units. Also being introduced is a manual low-cost moveable curtain partition for wash bays, wax bays, lube bays or other problem areas that require containment. Clear Fold doors contain heat, which combats the mist of overspray that can ice up on outside pavement. The doors will also permit an accidental drive-through with less damage than a solid sectional or roll-up door would allow. A Clear Fold door does not communicate a "closed for business" appearance like a solid door does, so that most operations will continue as normal on very cold, clear days. The closures will operate from existing car wash equipment signals and are produced to withstand harsh car wash environments. All model doors come with either 24 VAC or 110-volt AC control valves.
