Air curtains for warehouses save energy and improve comfort

Air curtain, Airbloc, energy efficiency

Air curtains over or beside large doors in warehouses can cut energy loss through open doorways by over 80% — according to Airbloc, which supplies air curtains for such applications. Comfort is also improved. Internal temperatures can drop by 4 to 10 K every time a warehouse door is opened. With an air curtain, the difference is normally just 1 K.

Airbloc air curtains deliver a uniform flow of air to separate indoors and outdoors, maintain the internal climate, offer significant cost savings and vastly improve comfort.

Over-door air curtains induce warm air down from high level, reducing heat loss through the roof. Recent developments include a fresh design that promotes laminar airflow and includes deep-profile aerofoil-section air-straightening vanes; these features improve climate separation between indoor and outdoor environment.
