"Light door" combines heat protection and increased privacy
It is light permeable, opaque and thermal insulating – and optimally unifies these characteristics: the new five-chamber multi-skin sheet from industrial door manufacturer Teckentrup (Verl). With a 50 percent improvement in heat insulation compared to conventional SL doors, it efficiently protects against heat losses and achieves light permeability of 59 percent. At the same time, this new type of glazing unit offers added privacy and is more robust than conventional glazing.
Glazing for industrial sectional doors has so far been regarded as an energy loophole. With the innovative design of the five chamber multi-skin sheet from Teckentrup, doors with high glazing proportions can now achieve good insulating values – a 5 x 5 metre door, for example, has a UD value of 2.56 W/m²K.
Translucent sheets let daylight flood into the building. This in turn saves energy and is regarded as the most pleasant light by most people. The 59 percent light permeability of the new type of sheets is also particularly high. Furthermore, the elements are very light and impact resistant. Despite their light permeability, furnishing, equipment and items in the building are only faintly visible. This is especially important when there are items of value which need to be kept away from sight, for example cars or machinery. The UV protection of the elements also prevents the negative effects of the sun, such as the fading of paintwork.
The five chamber multi-skin sheet is suitable for all Teckentrup industrial sectional doors. It is therefore possible to have a pure "light door" as well as a combination made from heat insulating sandwich panel sections, which incorporates the use of a single light strip for a "window".
