Panasonic has launched a range of air curtains designed for smooth operation and efficient performance.
Normally situated at the entrance to a building, air curtains provide an evenly distributed air barrier. When doors are opened in heated buildings, heat is retained within a space and conversely, in summer when the doors are open, air conditioned buildings retain the cooling effect.
The new standard and jet-flow models are ideal for connection to a PACi or VRF systems and are relatively simple to install. Both are fitted with an EC fan motor for a smooth operation and efficient performance. This new fan guarantees 40% lower running cost than with a standard AC fan motor. With air curtains often running for 12 hours a day, this can lead to considerable savings.
Available in different lengths to suit requirements between 1 and 2.5m, the air curtains have outlet grilles that can be adjusted to five different positions. In addition, the air filter can be accessed without the need for specialist tools. The standard model can be installed up to a height of 2.4m with the jet flow model allowing for installations up to 2.7m in height.
