What do air curtains do?

How do air curtains work?
- Air curtains work by separating two differing areas of temperature with a curtain of air. They generate a fast moving air stream to block the movement of air through the door whilst still allowing the door to stay open.
- The goal is to place one above or to the side of the entrance covering the width of the door stopping heated air escaping in winter or cooled air escaping during the summer.
- The positioning of the air curtain is pivotal, being too far from the entrance will decrease the performance, with air leaking around the generated stream.
- Extractor units are commonly used within the building, a ventilation system should also be installed to equalise pressure differences for the maximum overall effectiveness.
- Whilst retaining the cooled air within a cold storage room, an air curtain significantly reduces the amount wasted energy, whilst retaining its full access. Having no doors/curtains reducing user visibility, safety is drastically improved whilst moving around the property.
