For some facilities, installing an air curtain system makes great sense. Instead of separating two areas by means of a physical barrier, an air curtain projects a stream of air downward, in effect creating an invisible barrier of air pressure. People and equipment can still move freely between the zones, with the only noticeable effect being a light gust of warm air upon the individual.
Kingman Industries carries a wide selection of air curtain models including heated units that use gas, electricity, steam or hot water. All models that we carry comply with USDA regulations and are Canadian Standard Association certified.

No Physical Curtain: An air curtain projects warm air down, eliminating the need for closed doors, vinyl curtains or any other physical partition between the inside and outside.
Convenience: Air curtains offer the most ease of flow for people and cargo traveling through the opening.
Better Circulation: As warm air rises up, the air curtain draws it back down to the floor level. This improves air flow for the entire facility where up to 50% of heated air is trapped under the ceiling.
Maintains Internal Temperature: In both warm and cold weather, an air curtain can keep in heat and reduce the loss of conditioned air.
Blocks Insects & Dirt: The air stream acts like an invisible door to keep insects, smoke, dust, fumes and dirt outside.
Long Life: Air curtains are designed and engineered to comply with and exceed high safety code standards. As well, the materials and quality control give these units both high performance and an expected lengthy duration of service.
Superior Visibility: Since there are no physical parts in the air curtain barrier, visibility is 100%. This further increases the safety around heavy traffic door areas.
