Walk-In Door & Box Accessories
Tafco doors are among the best in the business. We boast a wide variety of options to make our doors meet your specific needs. Tafco doors come in standard opening sizes of 30”, 34”, and 36”, and custom sizes are available as well. Tafco doors come with an assortment of accessories and options to fit your requirements. We offer most hardware with an antimicrobial coating option. We also offer manual and electric sliding, bi-parting, vertical, and vertical sectional doors.
Standard hinges are self-lubricating, reversible, and very durable. They offer reinforcing ribs for extraordinary strength and are aesthetically pleasing. We offer many other hinge types as well.
2. Door Closer
Our standard door closer permits fast door closure to make sure the cold stays inside. The standard door closer is solid stainless steel throughout and is built for years of trouble-free use.
3. Pressure Relief Port (PRP)
A PRP is part of standard installation on all coolers and freezers to equalize pressure between the interior and exterior, caused by sudden pressure changes. The port allows doors to open and close with ease and reduces stress on walk-in joints.
4. Pull Handles & Latches
A standard heavy-duty, ergonomically designed pull handle allows comfortable, easy door opening. It features concealed, tamper-resistant mounting and is NSF listed. Pull handles are combined with a separately mounted locking hasp that provides optimum security and a glow-in-the-dark, quick release, inside safety mechanism. We also feature locking pull handles and positive latch options.
5. Thermometer / Alarms / Motion Sensors / Switches
Standard thermometers and light switches feature LED displays with 1 second, 1 minute, or 3 minute display updates. They also feature an illuminated light switch, allowing operators to turn on the walk-in light easily. We also offer many different types of dial thermometers and switches, including motion sensor, interval timer, alarm, light manager, fan control, and piloted flip.
To allow easy visibility of your product through a Tafco door, we offer standard size 14” x 14” and 14” x 24” and custom size heated and unheated viewport windows. These viewports have tempered, triple-pane, moisture proof, clear glass viewing areas. They have fully welded PVC framing, which provides positive insulation barriers, eliminating heat transfer and sweating. Viewports are filled with Argon to comply with the Energy Independence Act of 2007.
1/8” or heavier kickplates can be provided on the interior and exterior of doors located in heavily trafficed areas to protect the door from damage.
8. Exterior & Interior Ramps
To eliminate a step-up into the walk-in, a ramp can be installed. An interior ramp is available for limited, light duty, roll-in traffic. Exterior ramps are removable and will not interfere with the interior storage area. Interior ramps are available when exterior space is limited. Ramps are also available for heavy duty use.
9. Bumper Rail
To prevent damage to walk-ins in heavily trafficked areas, we offer different types of bumper rails. They are available in extruded aluminum with a vinyl insert, hat-shaped, and triangular models in either stainless steel or aluminum.
10. Outdoor Membrane Roof (Flat or Sloped)
For walk-ins installed outdoors that need a waterproof seal, a membrane roof cap is available. It is constructed from a 0.94 mm thick Duro-Last single-ply roof membrane. Necessary installation instructions are provided.
11. Locking Bar
For better security, we provide an optional locking bar that connects to an inside safety release, which prevents anyone from being locked inside.
12. Strip Curtains
To lessen the amount of cold air that escapes while a cooler or freezer door is open for extended periods of time, strip curtains are available in various sizes. Strip curtains reduce energy consumption and the compressor workload, while helping to extend product shelf life by maintaining a more consistent temperature inside your walk-in. In addition, we also offer Clear Vu swing doors for the interior opening. Clear Vu doors extend compressor life and help maintain a constant box temperature. They are not affected by moisture and will not drag over carried items.
Here at Tafco, we are making the “switch” to smarter, more efficient, environmentally-friendly lighting. Light-Emitting Diodes, or LEDs, are the newest and most efficient way to provide superior lighting in walk-in coolers and freezers. There are a number of advantages the LED lights have over incandescent and compact fluorescent lighting. In fact, it is an altogether different type of lighting. The LED does not contain Mercury, produce ultraviolet radiation, nor does it contain any harmful gasses, which makes it a much safer lighting method. In addition to all these great environmental advantages, the LED also offers energy and cost savings to the user. LED lighting uses significantly less energy and heat to produce the equivalent light of incandescent and fluorescent lights. We also offer 4’ fluorescent lighting and standard fluorescent lighting upon request.
