Air Curtain - Gazifère

Air Curtain

How an air curtain works

Creating an air curtain involves the installation of powerful fans that generate an invisible air barrier at a door or opening to efficiently separate two different environments without limiting access by people or vehicles.

You can purchase this type of equipment from a heating, ventilation or air conditioning (HVAC) contractor.
