Thermo King brings BlueSeal air curtains to North America

Feedback from European customers for BlueSeal air curtains cites a lack of obstruction while maintaining an effective barrier.

Thermo King announced a partnership with Brightec, a European manufacturer of air curtains for temperature-controlled trailers, box trucks and vans, to distribute its BlueSeal air curtains in the United States and Canada.

Thermo King tells us air curtains create an invisible climate barrier during door openings, which helps to maintain temperature control and prevent the infiltration of dust, insects and outside air from reaching sensitive cargo, such as food or pharmaceuticals. Brightec’s BlueSeal products are distributed to more than 33 countries.

According to Thermo King, BlueSeal air curtains demonstrated a substantial savings of 30% of energy in a small box truck and 45% of energy to recover cargo temperature in an 18 tonne (19.8 tons) refrigerated truck model, during independent tests by Brunel University London and its Centre for Sustainable Energy Use in Food Chains (CSEF).

“We are delighted to partner with Thermo King, who has shown tremendous support not only in distributing BlueSeal throughout the U.S. and Canada but promoting the product to their vast network of dealerships,” said Hans Opdam, founder of Brightec and inventor of BlueSeal air curtains. “Thermo King has a strong reputation for their commitment to sustainable solutions and we are excited to be part of their offering.”

“The addition of BlueSeal air curtains to our product lineup seamlessly integrates with our existing transport refrigeration technology, offering Thermo King customers yet another energy-efficient cold chain solution to support their sustainability goals,” said Catherine Walsh, aftermarket product manager at Thermo King. “Our collaboration with Brightec represents another stride forward in our commitment to delivering elevated customer value, and we are pleased to make BlueSeal air curtains accessible exclusively through our extensive dealer network.”
