Industrial & Commercial Ambient Air Curtains Industrial and Commercial Air Curtains

Industrial & Commercial Air Curtains –  Factories, warehouses, cold rooms and retail premises are all subject to the problems caused by frequently opened doors. The open door not only causes discomfort but greatly increases energy loss and, therefore, the running costs of the building. An air curtain or sometimes referred to as an air door from Flexiheat UK offers an energy efficient, cost-effective solution to these problems by reducing heat loss by up to 80%

 

Industrial Air Curtains – Our ambient air curtain uses the air of the room to create a barrier at the opening of the door. It is made of fans and an efficient diffuser. The range consists of 3 models from 1 meters to 2 meters. These industrial & commercial air curtains are  used to protect the doors from 3 to 6 meters in height and can be installed horizontally or vertically. Flexiheat ambient air curtains  – FACA series protects against uncontrolled incoming airflow. It helps to save energy by delivering a powerful air barrier across the entire width of the doorway.

The definition of Ambient Air with regards to industrial and commercial air curtains is in reality ambient temperature  – In a air curtain context, ambient temperature is the air temperature of any environment where air curtains and related equipment are located. The adjective ambient means “relating to the immediate surroundings”- Thus these are not heated air curtains – they just use the ambient air withing the building to cause a high pressure air curtain to prevent the interior of the building from the ingress of air from the outside, and thus losses of heat. There are additional benefits that these air curtain provides in protection against pollution, dust, fumes, undesirable odours and insects
