Eiger Door

Eiger Door

Eiger Door is the first automatic High Speed freezer door invented to operate reliably & effectively at high speed, thus eliminating snow & ice on the door blade and around the freezer opening, and at the same time helping to reduce cold store energy costs.


Suitable for internal openings only from ambient/chill to freezer temperatures down to -30 degrees Celsius, our Eiger Door has quickly become the favoured quick access traffic door for all the major food retailers, 3PL cold storage & distribution, and frozen food manufacturers in the UK since its launch back in 2002.


And due to its success in the UK over the years, Eiger Door has received much interest from overseas markets in more recent years, with a number of doors already installed in Europe - and increasing through our various 'partner' company networks.


In common with other high speed doors in the Union Industries range, Eiger Door also boasts our simple yet proven 'Crash-Out & Auto-Reset' feature to ensure the door continues to operate even after impact to the bottom beam by a Forklift Truck!
