HCR Air Doors

It’s not just the door. It’s what’s behind it.

The world leader in re-circulatory air door technology.

Since 1974, the founders of HCR set out to find a better solution for moving traffic through cooler and freezer doors. Using a completely fresh engineering approach and the principles of psychrometrics, the refrigeration engineers at HCR developed new technologies that pioneered the re-circulatory air door industry.

Today, with more than 40 years of field experience, HCR has gone from the drawing board to application, from a basic idea to reality and has proven itself with thousands of successful installations worldwide. HCR doors can be found inside the facilities of the largest, most demanding and cost-conscious grocery and food distribution centers, food processing plants, refrigerated warehouses, and retail grocery stores.

HCR Quality Manufacturing & Engineering

From HCR’s metal cutting laser machine to their powder coating system, HCR ensures quality to all aspects of their manufacturing. HCR is also an approved UL control panel manufacturer. Customers count on HCR to do the correct application engineering then create the appropriate air door unit for their needs. HCR engineering uses CFD modeling to essentially crawl inside a unit they are designing to make sure it can accomplish the intended results. This combination of engineering, manufacturing, and experience is what HCR customers have come to expect.

HCR simply outperforms competitors.

HCR has proven itself in side-by-side engineered studies against competitors. In cooler applications, HCR’s superior technology typically achieves much greater efficiency in reducing 2-way air exchange. When freezer solutions are compared, HCR is typically found to use at least half the energy of their competitors as well as achieving much greater reduction in 2-way air exchange. HCR employs a unique combination of different engineering disciplines to achieve their results that competitors simply do not possess.

HCR is the only air door manufacturer to have independent third party test lab results to back their claims.

Solutions for Walk-In Freezers to Conveyors to the largest ASRS Distribution Facilities

HCR technology is now everywhere within the temperature-controlled world. Although HCR is most known for maximizing energy efficiency and eliminating moisture-related problems in the largest ASRS grocery distribution centers, they also are providing remarkable solutions for Grocery Retail/Food Service walk-in freezers. All types of conveyors have also benefited from HCR technology. Anywhere the refrigeration system is being overwhelmed by moisture infiltration is a potential application for HCR technology.
