Air curtains offer a unique means of separating the interior of a business from the outdoors. A controlled stream of air is directed across the garage or dock opening, creating an air seal. This invisible barrier boosts energy efficiency by preventing the flow of cold and warm air. The barrier also keeps out insects, dust, odors and other pollutants – all while not limiting the access of people moving into and out of the space.
Who Needs an Air Curtain?
Does your restaurant staff struggle to keep out insects and dust? An air curtain, also known as an air door, could be the solution.
Does your business have a drive-through window that lets in flying bugs? An air curtain may be what you need to keep them outside.
Do you need a barrier between your business and the outdoors, but also an unobstructed view of the parking lot? An air curtain could do the trick.
Other operations that commonly use air curtains are those with shipping and receiving docks, customer entryways, and refrigerated and cold storage rooms. Air curtains are also frequently found at airport hangars.
The energy savings that air curtains provide are well documented. Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration News has reported that air curtains conserve more energy than vestibules, which means businesses can save significantly on construction costs by not adding vestibules.
