What is an air curtain?

An air curtain is a device that blows a controlled stream of air across an opening to the other side. This creates a seal or a barrier that prevents contaminants from moving from one space to another. This seal separates two environments while still allowing access to people, animals and equipment, while keeping out dust and insects. 

How do air curtains work

Once the installation is done by HotArctic Heating and Cooling, the air curtain is powered on and the air is brought in through the inlet. The air is compressed by internal fans and is forced out through an air outlet directed to a doorway.

The air curtain has filters that protect the interior components from dust and debris.

What are the uses and benefits of air curtains?

  • The air curtains save energy through control of air transfer.
  • Air curtains increase ventilation and stratifies air, therefore, creating a safer environment.
  • Improve comfort for clients.
  • Reduces dust and insect infiltration.

Where can an air curtain be applied?

An air curtain can be used in a domestic and industrial setup. This includes: schools, hospitals, airports reprocessing plants, and restaurants.

What to expect during installation.

HotArctic Heating and Cooling sends a representative to the project site to before installation assess;

  • The physical dimensions of the space available for installation.
  • The type of opening intended for installation.
  • The climate and exterior temperatures.

So as to ensure that the best air curtain is selected that will suit your project.

While selecting an air curtain that suits your project, HotArctic Heating and Cooling provides a range of products that have high-performance motors, lower construction costs, improved working conditions, and are energy-saving. 


Inadequate installation or wrongly selected units can make your air curtain lose some if not all advantages. This is why it is always an important step to choose the right, experienced professionals to install your air curtain.
