Warm Storage Units, a division of Temperature Retention Systems Inc., unveiled its patent-pending Weatherization & Temperature Retention Systems and Door Curtains for the self-storage industry last week.
Debuted March 15 at the Inside Self-Storage World Expo in Las Vegas, the self-storage industrys largest conference and tradeshow, the products are designed to trap heat inside typical self-storage buildings consisting of front walls and roll-up doors.
Company President Jim Ciaciuch developed the products because he was looking for ways to reduce energy costs at his own self-storage facility in Port Angeles, Wash. He wanted to eliminate air flow and dust penetration into his units by creating a door curtain that sits directly behind a units roll-up door.
The products were energy-modeled and confirmed by Marky Moore, president of Capital Review Group in Phoenix, a consulting firm specializing in engineering, energy-efficiency and tax law.
Warm Storage Units has already manufactured enough of the new products to stock inventory through June. Later this year, it plans to launch its Cool Storage Units division to provide products that keep heat out of self-storage buildings.
Based in Port Angeles, Wash., Temperature Retention Systems manufactures and distributes temperature-retention systems for several industries, including self-storage. Its products include weather curtains, storage blankets and monitoring software.
