Air curtains have been developed to maintain the internal climate, with readings showing an average temperature drop of just 1°C – offering significant savings on the heating system’s energy consumption with little detriment to internal comfort conditions.
Positioned directly over or down the side of a doorway, Airbloc curtains deliver a uniform flow of air across the full door width that separates the interior and exterior atmospheres.
Energy efficient air curtains induce warm air that would otherwise be lost through the roof to eliminate cold spots in the building.
The air curtains possess a fresh design that promotes laminar airflow and includes deep profile aerofoil section air straightening veins – these improve the efficiency of climate separation between the indoor and outdoor environments compared to previous models.
When combined with an energy-saving control unit, both power consumption and energy costs can be reduced by up to 50%.
The SmartElec2 offers various control options to suit all applications including thermostats linked to door closed sensors that turn units down or off to increase energy efficiency.
The latest addition to the SmartElec2 is the proportional control algorithm.
This increases the leaving air temperature of the door curtain when the outside temperature drops and vice versa as the outside temperature increases.
