Happy 20th JS Air Curtains
Having been founded in 1999, JS Air Curtains is celebrating two decades of preventing doorway draughts across the UK. The West Sussex based air curtain specialist is still located at its original head office in Rustington, but has grown from having around 90 units in its catalogue to offering over 450 air curtains.
Commenting on the anniversary, JS Air Curtains’ UK sales manager, Kerry Jones, said, “The Company’s successful growth over the last 20 years has largely been due to offering a comprehensive range of air curtain styles, supported by friendly expert advice at very competitive prices.”
Kerry continues, “We are extremely proud of this milestone in our history and are really appreciative of the tremendous dedication and enthusiasm of the employees who have helped us on our journey. We would also like to thank all the amazing customers who have trusted us over the years to design and supply their air curtain systems.”
Mike Verney, area sales manager and a founding member of the JS Air Curtains team, comments, “Over the last 20 years we’ve seen a dramatic shift in the marketplace from cheap over-door heaters to much more effective air barrier solutions. Furthermore, we’ve worked continuously with designers and architects and have seen a definite trend of consultants wanting more than just plain box shaped units above doorways. Air curtains now, more often than not, have very architectural designs, customisable options and can offer more than just an air barrier, with the ability to carry signage, graphics, sensors and other features.”
Major milestones for JS Air Curtains across the last two decades include being the founding organisation of the Air Curtains Group at the Federation of Environmental Trade Associations (FETA), helping design solutions for some of the UK’s most prestigious buildings, like the Royal Albert Hall and the V&A Museum, and being acquired by the Condair Group in 2011.
In 1999, JS Air Curtains was formed as a sister company to JS Humidifiers. In 2011, world leading humidification specialists, the Condair Group, purchased the companies and subsequently rebranded JS Humidifiers as Condair plc. JS Air Curtains continues to maintain its longstanding brand identity and trades as a member of the Condair Group, operated from the same premises as Condair plc.
