Something needs know, before installing the air curtain
Why is this in the first place? Because we install the air curtain, the most important is to ensure the safety of the air curtains and then to ensure that the operation and use efficiency of the air curtains, and finally to ensure the air curtains are used in safe environment.
- Ensure that the installation wall/place is firm to prevent the air curtain from shaking, causing danger and noise
We can imagine that if the air curtains are installed at the unstable wall, as the unit operations and vibrates, the first problem may be unnecessary noise. As air curtains still predations, the screw holes become larger and the noise becomes louder.
Until one day, the air curtain suddenly fell off the wall, which was likely to injure the passing customers or employees, causing a great safety hazard. Therefore, it is necessary for the air curtain to be installed in a solid place.
- Install commercial air curtains indoors, and cold storage air curtains outdoors
For general commercial and industrial air curtains, we recommend installing them indoors, because, this can maximize the efficiency of the air curtains. Moreover, it is installed indoors, which can reduce the frequency of cleaning the air curtains, and it is not necessary to clean and maintain the air curtain frequently.
For cold storage air curtains, we recommend that users install them outdoors because the indoor super low temperature (minus 25 degrees) will make plastic parts such as wind wheels extremely fragile. At the same time, the door of the cold storage needs to be opened and closed frequently, resulting in a large amount of water vapor, which will cover the wind speed, motor, and other places, and from the ice in them, it can damage the air curtains.
- The installation height should not be too low, and the distance from the ground should not be less than 2.3 meters
If the installation height is too high or too low, not only will it not be effective, but it will also be a waste of electric energy, so it is very important to choose the right air curtain, please refer to this article.
- When need installed two or more air curtains, leave a gap of 20-40mm between each unit
If the door width is greater than the maximum length of the air curtains, then multiple air curtains need to be connected together for use. The gap between each air curtain is best controlled at 20-40mm, in order to make the air curtain efficient and Safe operation.
- When installing the air curtain, try to be as close as possible to the top of the door, so that the air curtain is more efficient
When we determine the door height, it means from the top of the door to the floor. Therefore, when installing the air curtain, make sure the air outlet of the air curtains is closer to the top of the door. Because it can make more effective the air curtains.
- Please ensure that the air curtain covers the entire door, otherwise it will affect the effect or even waste energy
If the air curtains cannot cover the entire door, the air curtains will not work, because the flying insects can still enter and exit, the indoor and outdoor air and temperature will still be exchanged, and so on.
- Do not install the air curtains where it is splashed with water, exposed to excessive steam, explosive gas or corrosive gas.
If the air curtains are installed in these extreme environments, it will accelerate the damage of the air curtain or reduce the effect of the air curtains. If you need to use it in these environments, please use a special air curtain.
