Air Curtains For
Specialty Use

Not all environments are created equal. Some are downright dangerous. It’s imperative that the workers and products operating withing these areas are kept safe. Whether an invisible enemy like airborne viruses or applications dealing with dangerous substances, air curtains can help maintain a higher level of safety.

UVC-based air curtains purify and sanitize air, removing potentially harmful viruses like the Flu, cold and Coronavirus.

Hazardous- and Corrosive-Duty Air Curtains are designed to not only create a barrier from dangerous elements, but to withstand the harsh conditions present in these areas. The air curtains and their components are made of heavy-duty steel to ensure performance and longevity.

Total Environment Control

Air Curtains with UV-C

With the onset of Covid-19 and the tremendous increase in curbside pickup, contactless delivery and touchless ordering, restaurants and retailers are searching for ways to safeguard and streamline the process through which food and merchandise are delivered to customers waiting outside in their cars. These businesses are creating or repurposing side doors, dock doors and even customer entry doors so that employees can deliver goods to customers waiting outside the store.

Many of these delivery doors are located in retail areas where climate and insect control are critical. Air curtains are a simple, effective and affordable way to ensure a comfortable interior while further enabling the touchless delivery of goods to customers in the parking lot. Of added benefit, air curtains will help keep energy costs in check by blocking the entrance of unconditioned outside air, reducing the strain and usage of your HVAC system.

Hazardous Environments

Air Curtains for Hazardous Environments

Large warehouse doors, when open, can let in all types of unwanted elements such as insects, fumes, dust and debris. In warehouses where cleanliness is a priority, such as food processing or medical production facilities, a stray insect can instantly ruin a product. Air curtains effectively create a barrier that blocks these pesky intruders when the door is open. Food service and food processing warehouses are especially susceptible to insect infiltration and Powered Aire air curtains create an effective barrier that helps maintains sanitation standards and separate indoor/outdoor environments.
