Doors and frames will be metal glad with 26 gauge; white stucco embossed galvanized steel. Heavy-duty hardware has a corrosion resistant protective coating. Freezer door will be equipped with 115-volt heater cable.
The Akvatek hinged personnel door is designed intelligently and built
to last. The door is U.L. Listed and labeled and is recognized as one of the
finest in the industry. Akvatek hinged doors are warranted for ten (10) years.
All Akvatek hinged personnel doors are foamed-in-place, Infitting, self-closing,
flush-mounted with magnetic gaskets and are of modular design. The door section
is interchangeable with most standard 47 in. x 84 in. wall panels (consult
factory for exact interchangeability). Akvatek can easily design and locate
any of our doors almost anywhere in a wall, within 11 in. of the exterior
corner on a 4 in. thick wall. Optional door sizes include:
- 36in x 84in
- 42in x 84in
- 56in x 84in
- 36 in. x 78 in
- 42 in. x 78 in.
- 56 in. x 78 in.
- 36in x 72in
- 42in x 72in
- 56in x 72in
Akvatek offers custom door sizes to meet any requirement.
All Akvatek hinged personnel doors are foamed-in-place with CFC-free urethane
foam. This manufacturing technique eliminates any structural wood in the door
and enables Akvatek to attach the door to the frame with (A)
heavy duty, self-closing, cam action, gravity hinges that are bolted
to steel plates with machine screws, ensuring maximum strength and eliminating
.Door sections are internally pre-wired at the factory for 115-60-1. Field
made in the light fixture base, which serves as a junction box.
Standard exterior door hardware includes (B) 36 in. high aluminum diamond-tread
kick plates in and out, and (C) a heavy duty locking door latch handle
with a keyed cylinder lock.
All walk-in doors include a factory installed (D) 2 1/2 in. dial thermometer
and (E) pilot light and light switch.
Doors are equipped with a (F) heavy-duty hydraulic door closer to
ensure a gentle, positive and complete door seal. All Akvatek walk-in doors
and frames are reinforced with high impact ABS plastic. This framing provides
extra support and rigidity to prevent warping, racking or twisting. By reinforcing
the doors and frames with high impact material three additional benefits are
• The ABS Lining:
Reinforces the door and frame to resist the day in and day out impact of carts,
hand trucks, and crates.
• Thermal efficiency: ABS is an efficient insulator. Use of ABS in the door
frame eliminates the need for heater wires in most applications creating a
thermal break between the warm metal skin of the walk-in on the outside and
the cold metal skin on the inside. This thermal energy efficiency also enables
Akvatek to use very low wattage which is less costly to operate. The heater
wires on our freezer doors are wired to a temperature sensing device that
prevents overheating prior to startup of refrigeration, during occasional
maintenance shutdowns, or in the event of a compressor failure.
• Incorporate Integral
Channels: The door and frame have channels which are designed to accept the
armored heater wire and cover made with heavy gauge magnetic stainless steel.
This cover is easily removable when necessary for access to the heater wire.
The channel in the door is designed to accept easily replaceable snap-in and
snap-out magnetic gaskets.
• Another feature of our door is (G) a vapor-proof dome light centered over
the door which insures efficient illumination and prevents interference with
shelving and vinyl strip curtains hardware. Akvatek incorporates a (H) 5 watt
safety night light into the dome light to eliminate the possibility of employees
being accidentally left in complete darkness, unable to safely find their
way to the door or the (I) safety release lever.
