JS Air Curtains goes to Great Lengths
JS Air Curtains has supplied and installed a 7.4m long stainless steel Rund air curtain system for a recent refurbishment at 151 Buckingham Palace Road, London. The bespoke system comprises two 2m long air curtains with a dummy section at each end.
The air curtain system was specified by building services consultants, The Anslow Partnership. The functioning central air curtains are creating a barrier of air to help prevent cold air from entering the reception area even with the doors in regular use.
151 Buckingham Palace Rd is an early 1990's landmark property and is situated adjacent to Victoria Station. It is mainly office space which is let to the Government and includes organisations such as the National Audit Office.
A horizontal steel beam runs across the width of the reception area, onto which the cylindrical brushed stainless steel air curtain system is secured. Services are supplied at one end so all cabling is concealed.
The two operating Rund air curtains at 151 Buckingham Palace Rd each incorporate 18kW electric heaters but hot water heating and air only models are also available. The Rund air curtain is offered in any single length from 1 to 3m with multiple units capable of accommodating any width of entrance. Fan powers vary from 1,875 to 6,475m³, making the air curtain ideal for sealing doorways up to 3.5m high.
The Rund 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. It is supplied with a control panel and 20m of plug and play RJ45 cable but can also be connected to a BMS.
