Eleven Brindleyplace featuring Reynaers CW50 and CW60 aluminium curtain walling systems

Eleven Brindleyplace featuring Reynaers CW50 and CW60 aluminium curtain walling systems

Reynaers Aluminium

This office building was designed as part of the long and large redevelopment saga; Brindleyplace. While the building is a truly modern statement, the anodised frames and fins to the glazing system are not simply powder coated but vary in colour; this gives them a warm and natural appearance, and so reflects the warmth of the brickwork of Brindleyplace’s Victorian buildings. The Reynaers systems used on the façades – a customised solution based on the curtain wall systems CW 50 and CW 60, and CS 68 doors in bronze anodized aluminium – form part of a bespoke curtain wall design.

Sainsbury’s Maidenhead featuring Reynaers CW 50-SC aluminium curtain walling system

Sainsbury’s Maidenhead featuring Reynaers CW 50-SC aluminium curtain walling system

Reynaers Aluminium

Maidenhead was a cliché of uninspired and unremarkable buildings until Sainsbury’s embarked on a major redevelopment scheme. The supermarket now forms the base of a major new building, with five floors of car parking which are embraced by an outer layer of flats. Reynaers’ CW 50-SC glazing follows the building’s curve and works without clumsy capping on the outside. The flats were fitted with Reynaers’ CS 68 system which was chosen for its high performance and good insulation values. The project shows the flexibility of a varied architectural approach to which Reynaers products can provide robust solutions.

JS Air Curtains at Esprit

JS Air Curtains

JS Air Curtains has recently supplied and installed a Windbox 18kW air curtain at the Esprit store in Covent Garden, London. The air curtain was specified for the installation by consulting engineers E&M Tecnica of Surrey.The two metre air curtain allows Esprit to leave their front doors invitingly open to passing trade whilst also maintaining a pleasant internal environment. The stylish unit creates a wall of heated air in the winter to keep the cold air out, and a wall of ambient air in the summer to keep the air conditioned air in.The Windbox air curtain range is available in any RAL colour or stainless steel. It has double low noise centrifugal inlet fans driven by an external rotor motor, which provides up to five speed selection. A micro-perforated air inlet grille acts as a particle filter and reduces servicing to just a periodic wipe or vacuum.The air curtain can be mounted horizontally above a door up to 3.5m in height or vertically at the sides of doors up to 7m wide, with one at each side. The control panel has plug and play RJ45 leads and comes with 20m of telephonic cable so it can be mounted out of sight, in a different room or behind a desk.Heating can be supplied by either low pressure hot water, with outputs up to 29kW, or electric heating, with outputs up to 32kW. The Windbox air curtain is available in 1m, 1.5m, 2m and 2.5m models.The air curtain project at Esprit was managed by JS Air Curtains’ in-house installation department.

Air Curtains for Cadbury

Air Curtains for Cadbury

JS Air Curtains

JS Air Curtains has supplied a bespoke Rund air curtain for the entrance to the offices of Cadbury in Birmingham. The 2m slate grey air curtain has a round design and is held horizontally above the reception door by matching slate grey supporting posts.The newly refurbished reception area was becoming cold from air ingress through its main doors. The air curtain was designed to tie-in with the architecture of the entrance and provides a barrier of warm air to create a pleasant and welcoming environment for staff and visitors to the office.Paul Dennick, Implementation Project Manager at Cadbury, comments, “After a major refurbishment of this part of the building, the reception area was suffering from cold air being sucked in through the main doors. We needed an air curtain that was independently mounted, as it could not be fixed to the fascia or ceiling of the reception. Since the air curtain from JS has been installed the cold air problem has been solved.”The Rund air curtain has many different mounting options. It can be suspended from a ceiling with cables or attached using arms to either the ceiling or wall. Alternatively it can be stood vertically at the side of a door or mounted horizontally on goal-post type legs, as it was at Cadbury. The air curtain will protect a doorway up to 3.5m high from air ingress when mounted horizontally or 7m wide when two units are stood vertically aside an entrance.The electrically heated unit installed at Cadbury can provide up to 5,550m³/h airflow and up to 30kW of heating. The Rund is available in electric or water heated versions, and as a non-heated, air only model. Five lengths are available from 1m to 3m and they can be mounted end-to-end as one continuous unit, with up to ten air curtains being operated from a single controller. It comes with 20m plug and play RJ45 connection cable and can also be operated from a BMS system.The centrifugal double-inlet fans provide high levels of airflow whilst being remarkably quiet in operation. The Rund air curtains can also accommodate other services such as motion detectors, CCTV, signage or emergency lighting enabling these features to be hidden or more inline with the architecture of an entrance.

The Rund model from JS Air Curtains fulfilled these requirements not only with the form, but also with the functionality.”The air curtain installations are part of the construction projects taking place at Stratford and Ebbsfleet stations in preparation for the 2012 Olympics. Up to 25,000 spectators every hour will be shuttled on the new high speed “Olympic Javelin” trains between central London and Stratford.The pairs of air curtains at each doorway were fitted with a central dummy section, joining them in the middle and giving the impression of a single 5.7m long unit, complementing the overall ascetics of the entrance. White RAL9016 was chosen for the project to match the colour of the doorway but the Rund is available in any RAL colour.The Rund air curtains at Stratford and Ebbsfleet stations will help prevent cold air from entering with the doors in constant use. They incorporate 22.5kW electric heaters but hot water heating and air only models are also available. The Rund air curtain is offered in any single length from 1 to 3m with multiple units accommodating wider doorways. Fan powers vary from 1,875 to 6,475m³, making the air curtain ideal for sealing doorways up to 3.5m high.The Rund has many mounting options. It can be held horizontally on brackets, as it was on this project, suspended on rods, mounted on post-type arms either from the floor, ceiling or wall, or stood vertically on the floor.Signage can also be accommodated on the air curtain, such as the Exit signs used at Stratford and Ebbsfleet.

Bryn Gaer Place, Newport

Bryn Gaer Place, Newport

AluK (GB) Ltd

A faceted on plan curtain wall completed in AluK’s SL52 system is the centrepiece of the two storey community hub known as The Curve in the Bryn Gaer Place housing development. AluK’s technical team worked closely with their commercial fabrication partners Vellacine to design the curtain walling for the project in Newport, which also required an external canopy to be attached to the system. The challenge was to deliver the faceted on plan design in a practical and cost effective way. This was achieved utilising AluK’s SL52 curtain walling system with a variable gasket solution and a single mullion to ensure that the glazing complemented the external façade design. AluK’s SL52 flexible, capped curtain walling system met the aesthetic, thermal, wind and water performance requirements set down by the north Wales based architects Ainsley Gommon.

Air Curtains at BT Newgate

Air Curtains at BT Newgate

JS Air Curtains

JS Air Curtains has supplied two Zen air curtains and a Rotowind revolving door air curtain for use at BT’s global headquarters at Newgate Street, London. The air curtain system was design by entrance specialists, Blue Chyp, who developed a custom solution to meet BT’s aesthetic and functional objectives.Adam Pressland, Director at Blue Chyp, commented, “The reception area at BT’s offices in Newgate Street had been suffering from draughts, creating an uncomfortably cold internal temperature. However, BT needed an air curtain solution that provided protection across both the pass doors and the main revolving door but didn’t detract from the original architecture.“We achieved this by creating a counterbalanced mounting solution for the two pass door air curtains that removed the need for any suspension system attached to the ceiling or fascia. The units were supported by a central frame across the top of the door. Matching colours to the existing interior and custom-made covers for the revolving door air curtain produced a seamless design.”JS Air Curtains supplied two 1m electrically heated Zen air curtains for use above the pass doors at BT, Newgate Street. The Zen is part of JS Air Curtains’ Designer Range and has a contemporary architectural style. It can be fitted with bespoke fascia panels of different materials and any RAL colour, and also carry signage, branding or even elements such as clocks. It is available in 0.5m lengths from 1 to 2.5m and with electric or water heaters and as a non-heated, air only model.The air curtain protecting the revolving door is a Rotowind. This air curtain was designed to meet the specific conditions of a revolving door, which can act as a low-speed fan, forcing a mass of cold air into a room with each rotation. The main body of the air curtain is mounted above the door with curved air outlets creating a barrier around the inner opening of the doorway. Each unit is created to exactly match the curvature of the specific model of revolving door.JS Air Curtains supplies an extensive range of air curtains, as well as bespoke solutions, for all commercial and industrial applications.

Air Curtains Collaboration at Drapers Hall

Air Curtains Collaboration at Drapers Hall

JS Air Curtains

Air curtain specialist, JS Air Curtains, and entrance specialist, Blue Chyp, have recently supplied and installed four revolving door air curtains at Drapers Garden office complex in the City of London.Blue Chyp was called in by its partners, Boon Edam, who had installed four revolving doors at the impressive 16 floor office complex to provide front and rear access to the reception hall. Constant use of the doors was creating severe draughts through the foyer and causing discomfort to the reception staff, resident employees and the building’s many visitors. Believing air curtains could be the solution, Blue Chyp turned to JS Air Curtains.Adam Pressland commented for Blue Chyp: “We thought air curtains would solve the draught problem at Drapers Gardens but needed an expert to help us specify appropriate eco-friendly units to meet the heating requirement while keeping electricity consumption low.“JS Air Curtains has provided the ideal air curtain in the Rotowind G1500E, which was designed specifically for use with revolving doors. Working closely with the JS project management department, our design team subsequently fabricated bespoke plenum covers, matching the structure of the four entrance doors, to camouflage the Rotowind units.”Black Rock, the asset managers for Drapers Gardens, has been delighted with the improved comfort and reduced energy costs that the joint collaboration between Blue Chyp and JS Air Curtains has delivered. Jason Tothill, from managing agents Norland Managed Services, commented: “We could not be more pleased with the function and performance of the Rotowind air curtains. The added requirement that they should blend aesthetically with the entrance décor has been a triumph for Blue Chyp.”JS Air Curtains’ Rotowind range was designed to meet the specific conditions of a revolving door, which can act as a low-speed fan, forcing a mass of cold air into a room with each rotation. By combining a Rotowind with a revolving door system, cold air is prevented from entering.The main body of the Rotowind air curtain is mounted above the door with the curved air outlets creating a barrier around the inner opening of the doorway. Each unit is created to exactly match the curvature of the specific model of revolving door. The Rotowind is made of aluminium profiles and zinc plated steel panels and nozzle, and was finished in natural anodised silver for Drapers Gardens. The low noise centrifugal double-inlet fans are driven by external rotor motors, with built-in thermal protection, and provide five-speed selection.
Air Curtain at Marconi Building

Air Curtain at Marconi Building

JS Air Curtains

JS Air Curtains has supplied a bespoke Zen air curtain for use at the Marconi Building in The Strand, London. The Marconi Building is an imposing Grade II listed building containing prestigious luxury apartments and penthouses. The air curtain was specified to match the same colour as the entrance of the building, thereby meeting both aesthetic and functional objectives.Air curtains seal an entrance with an invisible barrier of air, preventing cold air entering in the winter and air conditioning escaping in the summer. A comfortable temperature can then be maintained within the room and a building’s energy costs reduced.The Zen is part of JS Air Curtains’ Designer Range and has a contemporary architectural style. It can be fitted with bespoke fascia panels of different materials and any RAL colour, and can also carry signage, branding or even elements such as clocks. It is available in 0.5m lengths from 1m to 2.5m, with electric or water heaters or as a non-heated, air only model.Low noise, double inlet centrifugal fans with external rotor motors provide up to 6,475m3/h airflow making it suitable for use on doorways up to 3.5m. The control panel has five speed selection and is easy to connect to the air curtain with 7m of plug and play RJ45 lead. The Zen can also be controlled via BMS.
Concealed Air Curtains at Cannon Street

Concealed Air Curtains at Cannon Street

JS Air Curtains

JS Air Curtains has supplied four custom air curtains for a concealed installation at 110 Cannon Street, where they have been discreetly embedded into the walls. The air curtains are hidden from view on both sides of the imposing main entrance and quietly ensure a comfortable temperature within the elegant reception lobby.When the architects conceived the design of the exciting and stylish refurbishment at 110 Cannon Street, an 11 storey, 70,000 sq ft building in the heart of the City of London, they specified air curtains would be required but demanded no appliances be located above the revolving entrance door or visible through the glass façade. Building engineering consultant AECOM called in air curtain specialist, JS Air Curtains, with whom they had previously worked, to tender. JS’s innovative, ‘concealed’ design proved the ideal solution.Steve Lockwood from AECOM commented: “This is an unusual application for air curtains that would traditionally be sited above the revolving doors. However, JS was able to adapt the air curtains to overcome any difficulties that concealing them in walls might cause. The air curtains have been installed for several months now and appear to be working very well.”JS custom designed each of the four 1.5m air curtains with air inlets and outlets at 180° to each other to enable the air to enter at the back and be emitted from the front. Two sets of two 1.5m air curtains were then connected vertically to form 3m towers, which were concealed within the walls on either side of the building’s main doorway exiting onto Cannon Street. The air curtains prevent the glass revolving door from acting like a slow moving fan, bringing in cold air with every turn.As well as producing custom concealed units, JS Air Curtains can also supply bespoke models that incorporate other services such as CCTV cameras, smoke detectors, motion sensing alarms, signage and branding, and fascia panels made from a variety of materials or that contain elements such as clocks.
Bespoke Air Curtains at Park Plaza

Bespoke Air Curtains at Park Plaza

JS Air Curtains

JS Air Curtains has designed and supplied three bespoke air curtains to the Park Plaza County Hall Hotel in London. The air curtains were round polished stainless steel units and were designed in conjunction with engineering consultancy, Hilson Moran, and architects, BUJ Architects.Two air curtains were mounted above doors on either side of the main revolving door at the Addington Street entrance. Each was just under 1m long and incorporated electric heaters capable of providing up to 12kW of heat. Another 1.8m air curtain was designed for the side door entrance with an electric heater providing up to 22.5kW.The air curtains were designed to tie-in with the stainless steel and glass fascia of the 398 bedroom hotel located on the south side of the River Thames. As the front of the reception area is glass fronted the air curtain had to look attractive from all sides. A totally smooth, round, polished stainless steel design was decided upon.The air curtains were mounted directly on to the glass walls by installers, Essex Electrical Group, using specially produced stainless steel brackets. The air curtains had to be manufactured to exact dimensional specifications to fit into the available space and work in conjunction with the bespoke brackets. Exit signs were then mounted on to the front of the air curtains.As well as supplying a large range of standard air curtains, JS offers a bespoke service so that designers can use the air curtain to complement the overall design of an entrance. As well as signage, other services such as PIR sensors, CCTV cameras, emergency lighting and smoke detectors can also be incorporated into the air curtains.
Air Curtains at Exchequer Court

Air Curtains at Exchequer Court

JS Air Curtains

JS Air Curtains has installed two vertically mounted stainless steel Rund air curtains at Exchequer Court, a multi-story office block in St Mary Axe, London. The air curtains are keeping the draughts out and providing the main heating source within the large, open atrium of the reception area.The high ceiling of the atrium and the large revolving entrance door prohibited the use of air curtains suspended from the ceiling and demanded a high heating output to counteract the cold airflow. The heating capacity of the Rund air curtain, coupled with its capability to be mounted vertically, made it an ideal choice for Exchequer Court.Building manager, John Evans, commented: “The massive cubic space of our entrance atrium was proving a challenge to heat because the revolving doors were acting as a huge fan, bringing in cold air with every turn. The Rund air curtains, positioned vertically either side of the doorway, are able to cope with this, keeping out the draught and providing sufficient heating for our reception staff. We have had no complaints of cold over the winter season and have been able to maintain a low heat output setting.”The Rund air curtain has an attractive cylindrical design and is available in five lengths from 1m to 3m with a variety of control options including thermostats, door open sensors, outside temperature sensors and timers. It can be electrically heated or water heated, with outputs ranging from 3-36kW, or supplied as an air only model.Powerful double-inlet centrifugal fans provide up to 7,400m³/h of airflow, whilst being remarkably quiet in operation. This output makes the air curtain suitable for use on doorways up to 3.5m high or 7m wide when used vertically at either side.The Rund air curtain can be fitted with many different mounting or suspension options to tie-in with an entrance’s architecture. The units can be mounted on round goal post-like supports that can stand across an entrance or shorter arms that attach it to a wall or ceiling. It can be hung with chains or poles or stood vertically at the side of the doorway, as it was at Exchequer Court.

JS Air Curtains worked with Adcrest and Mothercare to select the correct air curtain solution for each store.Alan Rouse, Building Services Manager at Mothercare, commented, “We are installing air curtains across the Mothercare chain to further improve the energy efficiency of our stores. As well as keeping warm air in during the winter, running the air curtains during the summer without the heaters will prevent air conditioned air from escaping, thus reducing our heating and cooling energy consumption.”A variety of air curtains were used but most installations incorporated the stylish Comtesse for protecting the shop fronts, the Standesse for protecting the staff entrances and Finesse for use in stores with suspended ceilings systems.The stylish Comtesse also has a versatile mounting feature that allows it to be suspended from very high ceilings, if required, with all suspension studding enclosed in an attractive casing.The Standesse air curtain, used on many rear doorways across the retail chain, has a powerful output of up to 4,290m3/hr protecting entrances of up to 4m high from incoming cold air. The air curtain offers up to 18kW of heat, can be mounted either vertically at the side of a door or horizontally above a door, and is available in lengths of 1, 1.5 and 2m.

JS Air Curtains has supplied 20 air curtains for the recently opened Union Square shopping centre in Aberdeen. Three different types of air curtains from JS are helping prevent cold air from entering the prestigious £275 million retail development, keeping the internal atmosphere warm for shoppers and staff.The air curtains were installed by M&E contractors, NG Bailey. Half of the units supplied are 2m long stainless steel Rund air curtains. They are stood vertically on their ends at the front and rear entrances of the shopping complex creating an attractive series of architectural pillars. Each vertical Rund supplies up to 3,750m3/hr of air and up to 24kW of heat. They can be used in the winter to keep the cold air out or in the summer, with their heaters off, to keep expensive air conditioned air in.The vertical Rund air curtains by the entrances incorporate low pressure hot water heat exchangers, allowing them to run from the existing hot water supply and provide air at variable temperatures.The other two models installed are Finesse concealed units for use in suspended ceilings and Mini Optima air curtains. Two 2m Finesses are protecting internal doorways and four 1.5m Mini Optima units are chained together in a 6m system to protect an entrance from a car park. All of these air curtains are also economically heated using low pressure hot water. The remaining four air curtains are horizontally mounted 1.5 Runds, attached above the doorways with bespoke stainless steel mounting brackets. All air curtains supplied are controlled via the building’s BMS system.JS Air Curtains worked closely with NG Bailey across a six month schedule to design and supply the systems. This included producing technical diagrams showing each installation, CAD drawings and the individual mounting brackets for the four horizontally mounted Rund units.Union Square was constructed by Miller Construction and opened to the public in October 2009. It combines unique new architecture with the Aberdeen train station façade built in the early 20th century. Developed by Hammerson, Union Square spans 700,000sq ft and is one of the biggest city-centre regeneration schemes in Scotland boasting over 60 stores and restaurants, a 10 screen cinema and a 203 bedroom hotel in the centre of Aberdeen.

JS Air Curtains has recently supplied and installed a Standesse air curtain to the Speedo retail outlet in Covent Garden, London. The air curtain creates a barrier of air across the entrance, enabling the shop to leave its front doors invitingly open without allowing in cold air during the winter, or allowing expensive air conditioned air to escape during the summer.Research has shown that by leaving a shop’s doors open, passing trade can be increased by as much as 40%.The Standesse air curtain range is very versatile and comes with a variety of control options to suit all applications. These include thermostats, door open sensors, outside temperature sensors and timers. Up to six Standesse air curtains can be joined together and regulated from the same controller with a choice of either electric heating, water heating or air only models. Electric heating outputs range from 9-18kW and air outputs from 1,660m³ to 4,920m³ per hour.The Standesse can be used to provide an effective seal on any doorway up to 4m high and is available in white as standard but also stainless steel or any RAL colour. A micro-perforated inlet grille at the front of the unit acts as a filter to prevent dust and airborne particles from entering the air curtain. A simple wipe or vacuum from regular cleaning staff is all that is required to maintain the Standesse.The air curtain project at Speedo was managed by JS Air Curtains’ in-house installation department. A complete service is provided to ensure the customer is guided through the installation of their air curtain from system design to product training. This includes agreeing exact specifications prior to installation, a step-by-step method statement for the project, detailed scheduling, risk assessment, and a post installation trouble-shooting and handover meeting.

As part of a major refurbishment at its retail store in Bognor Regis, Reynolds Furniture selected JS Air Curtains’ Finesse and Optima air curtains to maintain the internal atmosphere while complementing its modern interior design. Discretely blending in with their surroundings, the air curtains are ensuring customer and staff comfort throughout the summer and winter.A family-run business since 1867, Reynolds is the largest furniture store in Sussex and prides itself on excellent customer service. Needing to bring its 25,000sq ft of retail space up-to-date and enhance its customers’ buying experience, it commissioned air conditioning specialist, South Coast Refrigeration Services, to install a new cooling and heating system. As part of this installation, air curtains on the ground floor were an essential ingredient to maintain the ambient temperature; keeping the cool conditioned air in during the summer and the cold air out during the winter.Brian Ritchie from South Coast Refrigeration project managed the installation: “Having previously enjoyed a problem-free relationship with JS Air Curtains, we turned again to this local supplier. We knew we could rely on the performance of the air curtains and that this kit would be easy to install unobtrusively at both entrance points.”A 1m Finesse concealed air curtain was installed flush with the ceiling over the back door, whilst a 2m Mini Optima was suspended above the automatic sliding doors at the main customer entrance.Matthew Reynolds, finance director at Reynolds, commented: “The renovation of our furniture store was designed to create a modern environment where our customers would feel comfortable and at ease making their buying decisions. It was important that the air curtains looked great, to match the aesthetics of our décor, as well as maintaining the ambient temperature. We have been very pleased with the result and the air curtains have performed well so far, keeping our customers cool over the hot summer. We are confident they will continue to do their job through the colder months to come.”The Finesse concealed air curtain for suspended ceilings is suitable for ceiling voids of just 350mm. It is simple to install and has easy access for maintenance. It is available in 0.5m lengths from 1m to 2m with non-heated, electric or hot water heated models and has a comprehensive range of control options.The Mini Optima air curtain is an economic solution also available in lengths up to 2m. It is available in single or three phase power options with maximum airflows of 1,350m³/hr making it ideal for protecting doorways up to 2.2m high.

BUPA's Winter Air Curtain Cure

BUPA's Winter Air Curtain Cure

JS Air Curtains

The versatility and aesthetics of the Rund air curtain from JS Air Curtains has cured BUPA’s winter draught problems at the reception of its Health and Wellbeing UK offices in Staines. The attractive air curtain has been custom designed so it can be easily removed during the summer months when it isn’t required.Despite underfloor heating and the heat gains from the glass façade, the large reception atrium suffered from cold draughts during the winter as over 11,000 employees enter and exit the building through its revolving doors.JS Air Curtains’ solution was to vertically mount a 2.5m high, low temperature, hot water-heated Rund air curtain to the side of the entrance. The air curtain creates a warm air barrier across the inner opening of the doorway. This stops the revolving door acting like a slow moving fan, bringing in cold air with every turn.A key requirement of the air curtain design was that it could be easily removed during the summer when it was not required. These features include a 500mm dummy section at the top to accommodate an electrical isolator and a base plate that can be concealed by a flooring tile when the air curtain wasn’t in place.Bob Lyle, BUPA Facilities Manager, has been pleased with the result: “JS Air Curtains completed the installation last year and the Rund tower worked well from November to March, keeping our reception area comfortable for both staff and waiting visitors. Although it blends in with the décor of the atrium, we do not need an air curtain during the warmer months and have now put the tower carefully into storage until the cold weather returns. This versatility is an important benefit for us.”The Rund air curtain can be supplied in stainless steel or finished in any RAL colour, such as the light grey gloss chosen by BUPA. It can be fitted with many different mounting or suspension options to tie-in with an entrance’s architecture. It is typically positioned horizontally above a revolving door with chains or poles but this was not possible for BUPA because of the extensive glazing used in the construction of the atrium.As well as being able to provide custom air curtains, JS can supply models that incorporate other services such as CCTV cameras, smoke detectors, motion sensing alarms, signage, branding and fascia panels made from a variety of materials or that contain elements such as clocks.
