Designer Air Curtain at Canary Wharf
JS Air Curtains has designed and supplied eight vertical air curtain systems for The Park Pavilion complex in Canary Wharf.
The six 3m and two 2.5m air curtains were supplied in brushed stainless steel and are positioned vertically at the sides of the entrance to the Park Pavilion complex and three of the interior doorways. As well as keeping the cold out in the winter, they can also keep the cool air conditioning in during the summer.
The air curtains were supplied to Canary Wharf Management Ltd and were installed by electrical contractors, Ashridge EC Ltd.
Each 3m air curtain is capable of delivering an airflow of up to 7,400m³/hr and has a 32kw electric heater. Other models are available with hot water heating or fan-only operation.
The Rund air curtain offers the ability to house other services such as smoke or motion detectors, emergency lighting, CCTV or signage. The air curtain also has many mounting options. It can be held horizontally on brackets, suspended on rods, mounted on post-type arms either from the floor, ceiling or walls, or stood vertically on the floor, as it is at Canary Wharf.
The air curtains can seal doorways up to 3.5m high when mounted horizontally or up to 7m wide when mounted vertically at both sides of an entrance. Five lengths are available from 1m to 3m with a variety of control options including thermostats, door open sensors, outside temperature sensors and timers.
