    Thermo King has added BlueSeal air curtains to its sustainable transport temperature control solutions, the company said. Thermo King has partnered with Brightec, a European developer of air curtains for temperature-controlled trailers, box trucks and vans, for exclusive distribution of its BlueSeal air curtains to the United States and Canada.

    An Invisible Climate Barrier

    According to Thermo King, air curtains are designed to create an invisible climate barrier during door openings. These curtains help to maintain temperature control and prevent the infiltration of dust, insects and outside air from reaching sensitive cargo, such as food or pharmaceuticals.

    Brightec distributes its BlueSeal products to over 33 countries worldwide to provide cargo climate control solutions for temperature-controlled transporation.

    As part of the collaboration, Thermo King will distribute these units to the new North American market. Thermo King will also expand its product portfolio to offer new energy-efficient air curtain technology for effectively managing cargo temperatures.

    “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.”

    Significant Energy Savings

    According to Brightec, BlueSeal air curtains have high satisfaction ratings from drivers in Europe as they do not cause any obstruction to the driver and provide a consistent, uninterrupted climate barrier to goods being transported.

    In independent tests by Brunel University London and its Centre for Sustainable Energy Use in Food Chains (CSEF), BlueSeal air curtains demonstrated a savings of 30% of energy in a small box truck and 45% of energy to recover cargo temperature in an 18-ton refrigerated truck model.

    “The addition of BlueSeal air curtains to our product lineup seamlessly integrates with our existing transport refrigeration technology,” said Catherine Walsh, aftermarket product manager at Thermo King. “They offer Thermo King customers yet another energy-efficient cold chain solution to support their sustainability goals. 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.”
