Description: This system is designed and engineered to reduce extreme hot or cold outdoor temperatures along with fumes that can adversely affect an indoor environment’s ambiance. It works to negate the airlock effect by keeping the lobby comfortable, which also reduces the building’s overall energy costs. Specifically-sized to fit each revolving door’s diameter, configuration, and brand, the product creates a separating air barrier at the building’s conditioned interior by blocking unwanted exterior air trapped within the moving door sections. It offers plenums in either concealed or aesthetically exposed configurations that can also be installed within a bulkhead.
Trim packages come standard in a white powder coating to blend in with the space. However, any hue from the RAL color chart is available, as well as metal finishes such as anodized aluminum or brushed stainless steel, to aesthetically match the finishes of the revolving door. It also features the patented Intelliswitch™, a digital controller designed exclusively for air curtain operation in commercial occupied spaces. The device can operate as a stand-alone air curtain controller, or it can be interlocked with any BMS. The Intelliswitch has a time clock, time delay and built-in thermostat, 10-speed fan control and other integrated features to help end users customize their air curtain functions.
