Air curtains are a design complement to the building. If the objective is to have all the benefits of an air barrier, such as the advantage of a discreet and totally integrated climatic separation, the best ally is the Invisair model of the Airtècnics recessed air curtains range.
Invisair is the most discreet solution to separate atmospheres because it is installed vertically or horizontally next to the door inside a column, false wall, drawer or false ceiling. The air inlet in the column or drawer must be made by means of a suitable grille to optimise the performance of the air curtain.
Unlike other models of recessed air curtains, in the Invisair air curtain the air inlet and plenum are in parallel planes, so the airflow through the unit is aligned.
In the exclusive Cannon Street office building in London, Invisair air curtains were installed vertically inside a false column because the ceilings were too high. Any other horizontal model would have to be much more powerful to cover the height of the door, reducing efficiency (greater distance to cover) and considerably increasing the sound level and reducing user comfort.
In the Oasiz shopping centre in Torrejón de Ardoz, Invisair air curtains have been installed in two establishments because they fit in perfectly with the interior design of the shops. Giving importance to the architectural elements and concealing the ventilation systems.
The Telefónica Foundation building, with its glazed entrances and surrounding stainless steel structure, also has Invisair air curtains that minimise the aesthetic and visual impact of the installation.
Another example of an outstanding installation is the air curtains at the W Dubai The Palm hotel, where for architectural and aesthetic reasons the air curtain structure has been placed inside a decorative element. The only visible part of the air curtain are the jet slats.
