Air curtain manufacturer Thermoscreens has launched the HX range of air curtains, featuring Ecopower Air Technology and optional weather compensation.
Designed for frequently used commercial entrance, air curtains minimise the amount of cold air entering a building while keeping the warm air inside – providing a comfortable environment around the doorway and reducing the amount of heating required, lowering carbon emissions and energy costs.
Thermoscreens claims its HX air curtains increases energy savings and comfort through the inclusion of the company’s EcoPower Air Technology.
This provides improved air velocity, class-leading uniformity and the highest levels of energy effectiveness by combining three innovative design features; a built-in pressure chamber to allow even distribution across the entire width of the air curtain, a converging nozzle to increase velocity and improve the air stream and product performance, and an active circular grille to create a constant, powerful and effective air stream.
According to ISO standard 27237-1, air velocity and air uniformity are two of the most important attributes an air curtain can have. Standard air curtains usually achieve between 40 and 60 per cent uniformity, but tests performed under the ISO standard have confirmed that Thermoscreens’ HX range achieves an unrivalled 90 per cent.
The UK-manufactured HX range is available in direct electric or water versions. The water versions can be used with conventional 82/71°C boilers, but are also suitable for lower temperatures such as 60/40°C or 45/35°C, so can be connected to more efficient condensing boilers or heat pumps.
