Air Curtains at BT Newgate
JS Air Curtains has supplied two Zen air curtains and a Rotowind revolving door air curtain for use at BT’s global headquarters at Newgate Street, London. The air curtain system was design by entrance specialists, Blue Chyp, who developed a custom solution to meet BT’s aesthetic and functional objectives.
Adam Pressland, Director at Blue Chyp, commented, “The reception area at BT’s offices in Newgate Street had been suffering from draughts, creating an uncomfortably cold internal temperature. However, BT needed an air curtain solution that provided protection across both the pass doors and the main revolving door but didn’t detract from the original architecture.
“We achieved this by creating a counterbalanced mounting solution for the two pass door air curtains that removed the need for any suspension system attached to the ceiling or fascia. The units were supported by a central frame across the top of the door. Matching colours to the existing interior and custom-made covers for the revolving door air curtain produced a seamless design.”
JS Air Curtains supplied two 1m electrically heated Zen air curtains for use above the pass doors at BT, Newgate Street. The Zen is part of JS Air Curtains’ Designer Range and has a contemporary architectural style. It can be fitted with bespoke fascia panels of different materials and any RAL colour, and also carry signage, branding or even elements such as clocks. It is available in 0.5m lengths from 1 to 2.5m and with electric or water heaters and as a non-heated, air only model.
The air curtain protecting the revolving door is a Rotowind. This air curtain was designed to meet the specific conditions of a revolving door, which can act as a low-speed fan, forcing a mass of cold air into a room with each rotation. The main body of the air curtain is mounted above the door with curved air outlets creating a barrier around the inner opening of the doorway. Each unit is created to exactly match the curvature of the specific model of revolving door.
JS Air Curtains supplies an extensive range of air curtains, as well as bespoke solutions, for all commercial and industrial applications.
