The Benefits of Air Curtains

Air Curtains offer protection against the outside environment and not only provide better working conditions but can give you energy savings as well.

Many large retail operations employ an open-door trading policy as it allows easy accessibility for their customers.  Whilst this is convenient for customers it does bring cold drafts into the building and over time, this inevitably increases energy costs. The installation of an air curtain gives you protection against cold drafts entering the building and warm air escaping, therefore saving you money on your energy bills.

Air curtain warehouse heating solutions are made specifically to minimise the amount of cold air entering a building while keeping the warm air inside. They can be easily installed on any frequently used entrance and are typically used in:

  • Shopping Centres
  • High Street Stores
  • Hotels
  • Hospitals
  • Warehouses
  • Factories
  • Pubs
  • Restaurants
  • Airports

Frequently used doors that don’t have an air curtain will lose heat easily because when the door is opened, the warm air will rise to the top and the cold air will enter, coming in at the bottom.

Over time, it’s amazing how much this can cost a company. An average double doorway in a warehouse can lose over 30kW of energy every hour and this can equate to around £7K of energy every year. The installation of air curtains can make considerable savings on this as well as providing a more constant temperature around the doorway. This makes the environment far more comfortable for your customers as well as your employees so it’s definitely worth the investment.
