The LiteSpeed Clean high-speed door from Rite-Hite (Milwaukee, WI) has been designed to deliver maximum clean room integrity, reliability and safety. The high-speed roll-up door is compliant with guidelines established by clean Good Manufacturing Practices, the Food & Drug Administration and the United States Department of Agriculture. Features include:

  • A tough PVC vinyl curtain construction and a tapered design that uses non-exposed fasteners, making it more resistant to collecting dust than flat surfaces and easier to clean.
  • The ability to maintain room-to-room pressure differentials of up to 0.2 InWC with its tight seal.
  • A roll-up design, which translates into a peak operating speed of 65” per second and a smaller physical footprint.
  • Soft-Edge Technology at the bottom of the door, which provides a higher degree of protection for product, personnel and equipment. An optional full-width vision panel allows workers to see what’s on the other side of the door, and a reversing slack sensor can reverse the door’s course if an obstruction is sensed.

Using available safety presence sensors, personnel working near the door are likely to avoid a collision. However, if the LiteSpeed Clean is bumped or impacted, the TRUE Auto Re-feed will automatically reconfigure the door back on its tracks. This eliminates a potential breach in a clean room environment and the downtime and costs associated with repairing a traditional door.
