Each time a cold store door is opened and in use, warm air from outside the doorway combines with the cold air inside the cold store causing energy loss.
Temperature recordings can show an increase of between 4°C and 10°C every time a cold store door is opened. This can be improved to 1°C with an air curtain, which results in reducing heat loss by up to 90%.
As the air curtain keeps the chilled air inside the cold store, the load on refrigeration equipment is reduced along with the associated energy consumption and carbon footprint.
An efficient and correctly installed air curtain in cold stores will provide a quick return on investment with savings made on energy bills.
