Air curtain solves draught problem for refurbishment at Cadbury in Birmingham

Faced with the need to overcome cold draughts in the refurbished reception of Cadbury, JS Air Curtains supplied a self-supporting Rund air curtain.

JS Air Curtains has supplied a bespoke Rund air curtain for the newly refurbished reception area of the offices of Cadbury in Birmingham. The area was becoming cold from air ingress through its main door, and the air curtain was designed to tie in with the architecture of the entrance. The slate-grey air curtain is 2 m long and has a round design. It is supported above the entrance door by matching slate-grey supporting posts.

Paul Dennick, implementation project manager with Cadbury, explains, ‘We needed an air curtain that was independently mounted, as it could not be fixed to the fascia or ceiling of the reception.’

The unit is electrically heating and can provide up to 5550 m3/h and up to 30 kW of heat.

Rund air curtains are also available in water-heated versions and as non-heated air-only models. There are five lengths from 1 to 3 m.
