Air Curtains
For Commercial Use

​Nothing says “We are Open” better than an open door. Unfortunately, weather, insects, fumes and geography make that challenging. During the dead of winter or peak of summer, the outside air can wreak havoc on the conditioned air inside. Air Curtains are an ideal solution for this and can be used on commercial and retails doors of all sizes to let the customers in but keep the outside air out-all while creating a more comfortable environment for shoppers and employees alike.

Air Curtains can also be used as a replacement to vestibules in many applications. The key benefit of a Powered Aire air curtain is that it enables a commercial store front to remain open during business hours-while helping to keep employees and customers comfortable, regardless of outside temperatures. Powered Aire air curtains also help meet the architectural and aesthetics needs of a storefront and can be used in grocery stores, outlet malls, retails stores and other businesses wanting to keep doors open during regular hours

Maintain Temperatures & Maximize Retail Space

​In retail applications, every inch of floor space counts. Air curtains ensure easy in/out access while helping maintain comfortable temperatures inside. Air curtains enable the doors to be “turned off”, which helps maximize accessibility and floor space. Furthermore, Powered Aire air curtains help maintain a comfortable temperature for shoppers and employees alike.

Air Curtains for Retail Temperature Control

​Today, more than ever, there is a focus on reducing the spread of germs. Air Curtains help play a role in this battle as an open door eliminates a commonly used touch point—a door handle. And with nearly 80 percent of illness-causing germs being spread by hand, removing this touch point is a critical step in reducing germs. Air curtains offer the benefits of a closed door even when the door is open. This reduces germs and improves accessibility.

Air Curtains Can Be Used To Replace Vestibules

​Following the ASHRAE/ES Standard 90.1-2019 and the IECC, air curtains can now be used an exception to vestibules. With retail space being at a premium, this frees considerable, and costly, space that would have once been taken up by a vestibule. For new construction, or retrofit design, shop and retail owners are able to forgo vestibules, which can be replaced by air curtains.
