Air curtains with modern design and high-performance

An air curtain utilizes fans to project a high velocity jet of air in a vertical or horizontal direction over an opening, usually a doorway. They create an air barrier that separates two environments and the transfer of air between them. It offers significant energy savings by protecting the air conditioned internal climate, whether that is cooled or heated. In addition to hot or cold air draughts, it keeps out insects, dust and odours. They can be stand-alone or ceiling recessed and can also feature heaters to create additional comfort to people passing under.

However, it is costlier than due to the complexity of the system. Non-recirculation air curtains have an easy installation and maintenance process. They cost lesser, and they release air into the environment. Some of the factors that can affect the performance of the curtain, as well as its effectiveness and operation, are:

These three factors considered and correctly noted for better effectiveness of air curtains.

Do air curtains work?

The answer to this question is an overwhelming YES. Several studies and testimonies back up this response.

If this is recovered over a long period, several hours are saved in operation time by the refrigerator compressor.

It means that there will automatically be a reduction in money spent on repairs and maintenance. It also leads to more energy savings every year.
