How air curtains work
Generally located at the top of the entrance of a premises or establishment, they have a similar appearance to air conditioning devices but their operation is different. They have a grille through which air enters, which is compressed by the internal fans and directed towards the outlet grille. Through this system, it is possible to create an invisible wall that separates two different environments, avoiding the installation of doors. In this way, the air does not escape to the outside and the air conditioning of the space can be retained without the need to increase or decrease the degrees due to the effect of the external environment.
- Actuated manually
- Automatically actuated by opening the doors through sensors.
What are air curtains for?
The most widespread use of air curtains is in commercial premises, especially those where there is no door and where the contrast with the external temperature is very great. They are also a great option for large refrigeration chambers, which are open for a long time and require a system that maintains the temperature.
Likewise, air curtains are not only a solution to control the climate, but they are an effective way to avoid dust, flying insects and bad odors. For this reason, they can also be used in workshops, hospitals and schools with the aim of keeping spaces free of contamination.
In short, this type of device is suitable for all those sites that have a constant flow of people in and out.
