Whether you’re a university or elementary school, use air curtains when the doors are open to:
- Keep flying insects out – chemical-free
- Protect the comfort of students, staff, and visitors
- Keep out cigarette smoke, vehicle emissions, and other pollutants
- Conserve energy and save money
Where Schools Use Air Curtains:
- Main Entrance: You can use both ambient and heated air curtains main entrances, along with or instead of a vestibule. This protects common areas and hallways from outside temperatures and traffic fumes as students, parents, and staff come and go.
- Service Door: Facilities Managers use air curtains over man and loading dock doors, thus protecting back hallways from outside temperatures, secondhand smoke, truck exhaust, and flying insects.
- Kitchen Delivery Doors: For chemical-free insect control, health departments recommend an EPH Listed NSF 37 Certified Berner Air Curtain. Therefore, this installation helps to maintain a healthier kitchen environment.
- Interior Entrance Doors: Keep smells inside the cafeteria with an Architectural or Commercial Low Profile Air Curtain, for example.
- Walk-In Cooler: Maintain cooler temperatures when the door is open and thus, save energy through decreased compressor run times. Plus, lower the threat and associated costs of food spoilage.
- Outside Seating Doors: Maintain the comfort of those on the inside as people go outside by keeping flying insects out and conditioned air in.
Berner has AMCA certified air curtains allowed by ASHRAE 90.1-2019 as an alternative to vestibules.
