Air Curtain

ECo Motor™ (ECE-HW) Hot Water Heated Air Curtain

Hot Water

The ECE-HW is an energy saving air curtain that utilizes an advanced motor to create a consistent shield of air across the entire door opening. Powered Aire’s ECo-Motor™ models feature electrically commutated (EC) motors that are significantly more energy efficient than traditional PSC motors. The motors are specifically designed for air curtain applications, with the time between motor activation and maximum speed less than 1 second. Along with the advanced motor, the ECE-HW incorporates hot water-based heat to enhance employee/customer comfort and prevent cold, outside air from entering.
