An air curtain is a device designed to be mounted above or on the side of the door covering the full entrance width. Air curtains provide an invisible barrier that separates the internal and external environment and stops cooled air escaping in the summertime or heated air from escaping in the colder months. Using Air Curtains is the most convenient and comfortable way of separating different temperature zones without interrupting people's traffic.
How do air curtains work?
Air curtains produce fast-moving airflow that blocks air movement through the area entrance. By stopping the air movement, air curtains can reduce heat loss, seal the building from the environment and saves energy. It is very important to fit the width of a device in a doorway, as incorrectly installed barriers may produce a weak air stream and stop air movement.
