Beaufort House enjoys the comfort delivered by JS Rund air curtains
With some 4000 occupants of Beaufort House in the City of London passing through the entrance atrium each day, aesthetic Rund air curtains from JS Air Curtains play a key role in preventing draughts and making the reception area cold and uncomfortable. The double-door elliptical air pod has four 2 m-high Rund air curtains either side of the doors to heat air in the pod and create a barrier against cold air entering the building.
Graham Power, electrical director with building-services consultancy Thornley & Lumb, specified the air-curtain requirements; ‘We were confident that four Runds, each with a heating output of up to 30 kW and airflow up to 5550 m3/h, would comfortably meet the requirements of the Beaufort House’s large reception are. A key consideration in the specification was the aesthetics of the air curtains, as they needed to merge seamlessly with the minimalist and modern interior design. The stainless-steel Runds blend in beautifully.’
The units at Beaufort House use LTHW; electrically heated and air-only models are also available.
