Installing an air curtain door can save energy, improve health and safety and protect your environment from contamination
Are you looking to provide a clean, comfortable and hygienic environment for your workplace? Whether you work in food processing, mining and construction, hospitality, warehousing, or healthcare, air curtains can protect your environment by creating an invisible barrier between two temperature-controlled zones. Throughout this blog post we’ll cut through the confusion and explain how air curtains work, why they’re used, their benefits, and how Carona Group can assist you.
What is an air curtain?
An air curtain door is an invisible barrier system between two zones. The air ‘curtain’ is created by a unit mounted above the transition zone. This unit uses a centrifugal fan to blow clean, temperature-controlled air downwards into the transition zone.
This continuous stream of air creates an invisible air seal that separates two zones, preventing contaminates from moving between them.
Where are air curtains used?
Air curtains are ideal for businesses who want to protect their environment by creating an invisible barrier against outside pollutants like dust, dirt, insects and fumes while also maintaining the flow of traffic through a doorway. In some temperature-regulated buildings, such as hospitals, hospitality venues, and food processing facilities, the entry and exit doors are constantly being used, creating a large continuous leak of hot or cold air. Air curtains ensure that the inside and outside air is kept separate through the constant stream of air across the entire doorway.
What are the benefits of air curtains?
The main benefits of installing a commercial air curtain includes energy savings, improved health and safety, insect control and increased comfort.
Air curtains save you money on energy bills
Air curtains can save you money by helping to maintain even temperatures between zones and the prevent ‘leaking’ hot or cold air.
Air curtains create a comfortable indoor environment
In the colder months, air curtains can be used to help prevent warm air escaping. This makes it a popular choice in the hospitality industry, allowing customers to be seated comfortably near an entryway without being bothered by cold, wind, or odours from outside, such as cigarette smoke. Air curtains can also make workplaces more comfortable for staff and customers. The reduced air transfer between inside and outside means the building remains at an even temperature even as staff and customers enter and exit.
Air curtain doors control insects
Business owners can keep their doors open to provide a continuous stream of traffic without having to worry about flying insects getting into a controlled and hygienic environment. No one enjoys finding a fly in their soup!
Air curtain doors improve health and safety
As mentioned, air curtains provide excellent insect control, as well as reducing other containments that could put your customers or staff at risk. It also provides improved air quality and ventilation from the outside air that may contain dust, exhaust fumes, odours, pollution, or smoke.
