Rite-Hite releases Litespeed, a high-speed door that can operate around combustible dusts
The LiteSpeed HZ joins the Rite-Hite family of high-speed doors as one of only two doors in the industry that is UL listed for hazardous rated environments. The LiteSpeed HZ has a Class II, Division 2 listing from UL, carrying a Group Code G and Temperature Code 6. The listing means it can safely operate in facilities where combustible dusts (such as flour, grain, wood, plastic or chemicals) are not normally in the air, but can be present.
Its roll-up design translates into a small physical footprint in the workplace and operating speeds of up to 65” per second. Using available safety presence sensors, personnel working near the door are likely to avoid a collision. In addition to its ability to function well in clean environments, the LiteSpeed HZ also comes with an array of safety features. The bottom has soft breakaway, 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. A reversing slack sensor can reverse the door’s course if an obstruction is sensed.
