Electric Air Curtain Range
Electric Air Curtains – We do three ranges of electric air curtain heaters or sometimes referred to as electric over door heaters , a light commercial range, a commercial range and an industrial range. All of these over door heaters are suitable for taking and heating the air from the inside of the premises via electricity. They can be used without air conditioning heat for the air heating as ambient air only mode. By combining your door or opening with an electric warm air curtain you further reduce the energy loss and significantly increase the comfort of your building. Our warm air curtains provide extra protection for your door opening and keep the heat and cold outside or internally as per your site requirements and all this in an economical and aesthetic way.
These electrically powered air curtains / heaters are a modern solution that allows effective protection against heat, cold, dust and insects from the outside air. In winter, these electric air curtains prevent the warm air from escaping from inside the building or room, while in the summer they prevent warm or hot air coming from outside entering the building, thus allowing the room to maintain comfortable temperature conditions. These electric air curtains provide fresh air and positively influence the temperature conditions inside the building or room where they are installed.
This air curtain range are used to protect against uncontrolled external air inflow through the doors, reception areas or building openings in such facilities as: shopping malls and supermarkets, restaurants, bars, public service buildings, offices, hotels, banks, hospitals, pharmacies, warehouses etc. They help to reduce building carbon emissions and lower energy bills, with environmental separation.
Air curtain door heater – Electrically powered
Over door electric air curtains are easy to install and can be used for many applications. There are models for door heights from 2 metres to 6 metres for horizontal installation i.e. over door heaters, exposed or recessed, and also vertical units in standard configuration. Our range of electric air curtains are available in powers from 3 kW up to 30 kW. The selection of the appropriate electric air curtain type is very important to have the optimal air separation effect and to ensure that the heaters work in the most efficient and effective way.
What are the benefits of an electric air curtain heater compared to other heating solutions?
Compared to wall mounted radiators (radiators on a wet heating system, radiant panels, electric convectors etc): a wall mounted radiator does not allow you to isolate two rooms by separating them by a flow of air, unlike the curtain of hot air which creates a protection thermal screen as such. Compared to fuels other than electricity (for example, gas fired radiators / heaters, or a wet heating system): these warm over door curtains are an electric heating solution: because of their electrical power supply, they are adaptable to all locations, especially those that are not the mains natural gas supply.
Electric Heaters Air Curtains
How does the “insulation effect” of an electrically heated air curtain work?
Imagine a store or reception areas door opening constantly subjected to a cold air flow coming from outside. The recurring opening of the automatic doors every ten seconds leads to cold air for the people who enter and generates considerable thermal losses from the building. The hot or warm air curtain is an “insulation solution”, thanks to a flow of continuous pulsed warm air directed downwards, creating a thermal barrier against the outside temperature. The “insulation efficiency or effect” is therefore extremely helpful in reducing the thermal losses of the building ensuring both comfort and energy saving benefits as well as energy bills to both the consumer and the building owner. These door heaters air curtains really help reduce energy bills when used in reception areas of buildings.
Designer / aesthetically pleasing light commercial range
We start with range with the smaller electric over door air curtains, which are a aesthetically pleasing or a designer range air curtain – our “Slim” range is suitable for 99 percent of doorways. It’s the world’s thinnest air curtain. These products can be mounted both vertically and horizontally (wall mounted or suspended from a ceiling) .
These products are available in different lengths : 1 metre, 1.5 metre and 2 metre’s as well as in different voltages , designed to run off a Three Phase – 400 Volt electrical mains supply – they can however be wired to a single phase – 240 Volt mains supply , but the maximum kW output power is then limited to 2 to 4 kW depending on the leght of the curtains.
The maximum mounting height for these electric over door heaters is 3 Metres, which makes these a great solution for your commercial heating applications such as reception areas, hotel entrance halls, shops, restaurants, service stations, theaters and car showrooms, where the customers want to be heated with warm air as they enter these types of building.

Electric Air Curtains / Electric Over Door Heaters – Industrial
We do a full range of industrial electric air curtains suitable for all types of industrial doors, typically, they are used on the up and over type roller shutter doors (as shown in the picture below). We can supply these industrial electric air curtains, so that they can be mounted either horizontally mounted across the top of the industrial door, with the air being blown downwards ( again as pictured below) , or vertically mounted, blowing the air horizontally across the industrial door. These electric industrial air curtains can blow a maximum of 7.5 Metres, be it Vertically or Horizontally, thus most site requirements can be satisfied with this range of industrial electric air curtains. These industrial units are the best solution for loading bays, warehouses, hangars or factories, that need an electric warm air curtain.
There are three models or modules of these electric heated air industrial curtains,. They are basically modules that can be coupled together to make up your desired width or height for your industrial or commercial overhead roller shutter type door. These industrial air curtains can be situated to the side or above ( sometimes referred electric over door heaters when used in this configuration ) industrial doorways and create a powerful electrically heated air barrier across the open door way whilst providing total visibility and access. In this configuration of “modules” they tend to be easier to install, as they are lighter in weight and easier to manoeuvre into place and install than a dedicated single piece air curtain e.g. say a 4 meter long unit.
