Thermo King expands product portfolio with BlueSeal air curtains

BlueSeal air curtains by Brightec.

Thermo King teamed up with Brightec to be the exclusive distributor of BlueSeal air curtains in the U.S. and Canada, the companies announced Tuesday. 

Air curtains are designed to be an invisible barrier during door openings, helping to maintain temperature control and prevent dust, insects and outside air from reaching sensitive cargo. Brightec distributes its BlueSeal air curtains to more than 33 countries around the world. 

"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," says 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." 

Testing by Brunel University London's Centre for Sustainable Energy Use in Food Chains showed a 30% energy savings in a small box truck using air curtains and a 45% savings 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, offering Thermo King customers yet another energy-efficient cold chain solution to support their sustainability goals," says Catherine Walsh, aftermarket product manager at Thermo King. "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."
