Dimplex air curtain proves perfect fit in shoe shop

Published:  02 September, 2007

Perfect fit first time — not knowing in advance whether this air curtain was to be surface mounted or recessed, the contractor arrived on site with this Dimplex air curtain that would meet either requirement.

Faced with having to install an air curtain overnight at a Dune shoe shop in central London without being able to inspect the site first and knowing only the width of the door, the contractor arrive on site with a Dimplex CAB15ER unit.

Not only did the installer not know what kind of space was available (recessed or surface), but no wholesaler would be open in case of emergencies.

This Dimplex air curtain can be recessed or surface mounted as required and has successfully overcome the problem of cold draughts through the doorway.
