Overhead DoorJet Heater

Solaronics overhead DOORJET heater stops the chills and wasted energy that occur when outside bay doors open in car washes, manufacturing/industrial facilities, and distribution centers.  The in-rushing cold air is tempered by DOORJET’s immense heat surge while employees inside remain comfortably warm.  Energy is saved as the building’s heat system maintains its normal operation.

DOORJET's door heaters operate via a trip switch that starts the fan and burner automatically as the door is raised.  A “jet” of air is directed toward the door instantly.  When the door closes, the fan and burner turn off immediately.

In car wash applications, DOORJET heaters can also be placed at vehicle drying stations to increase the efficiency of the drying cycle.

DOORJET heaters are designed to operate with the door open to assure adequate dilution with fresh air.  Do not use DOORJET heaters in a closed, unventilated area, for space heating.
