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 at Speedo

JS Air Curtains

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.

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.

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.

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.

JS Air Curtains at Hope Uni

JS Air Curtains

JS Air Curtains has supplied a Rotowind air curtain for a revolving door at the Hope University in Liverpool. The air curtain was installed by M&E Contractor, HE Simm, and is helping to maintain internal temperatures, keeping students and staff warm at the new Registry Building at the Hope Park Campus.Although revolving doors offer some protection from the outside elements, they also act like a slow moving fan, dragging in cold air with every rotation. An air curtain following the contours of the internal curve of a doorway prevents this cold air from entering the building.The Rotowind air curtain installed by HE Simm at Hope University was a black 1.5m unit with an electrical heater capable of providing up to 22.5kW.The Rotowind can be supplied in any RAL colour or stainless steel and is suitable for doorways up to 3.5m high.

JS Air Curtains liaises with the door manufacturer and designs each Rotowind to perfectly match the contour of the door model.Heating can be supplied with an electrical heater or low pressure hot water. Air-only models are also available. The Rotowind incorporates low noise centrifugal double inlet fans driven by an external rotor motor with built-in thermal protection, capable of delivering up to 6,475m³/h of air.

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.

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.

Smart and minimalistic, the unit 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.The air curtain comes with anodized aluminium covers and a black inner section as standard but the units selected by John Lewis had totally white covers and inner sections, seamlessly tying-in with the white interior design of the stores’ entrances.The Zen is offered with electric or water heaters and as a non-heated, air only model. The discharge vents have airfoil shaped vanes to direct the airflow creating a tighter seal across a doorway. Low noise, double inlet centrifugal fans with external rotor motors can provide up to 2,775m³/h of airflow per metre of air curtain making the Zen ideal for doorways up to 3.5m high.

JS Air Curtains has recently supplied two Rund air curtains to 1Rebel boutique gym in Victoria, London. Described as a “Ride studio like no other” the 1Rebel gym at Victoria fuses amazing sound systems and lighting with a full body bike workout.With two entrances into its reception, the building was suffering from a wind-tunnel effect and wanted to eliminate the draught to maintain a comfortable internal temperature for staff and customers. The nightclub-like gym needed an air curtain system to match its vibrant contemporary style.JS Air Curtains’ Rund air curtain was chosen by architects as its cylindrical design perfectly complements the industrialised and futuristic interior, and could be suspended with inverted goal-post like supports. The units were installed by mechanical contractors, TMI Mechanical Limited, who also provided the ceiling mounted suspension arms.Nina Shadi, General Manager and trainer at 1Rebel UK, commented, “Since the air curtains have been installed, we’ve noticed a considerable improvement in the internal environment. We no longer experience the draughts through our wide doorways and the temperature is much more pleasant.”The Rund air curtain has rounded casing that comes in white or silver as standard but can be supplied in any RAL colour or with a brushed stainless steel finish. It can be suspended horizontally above a doorway, as it is at 1Rebel, or vertically at the sides of an entrance. When mounted horizontally, it has many different suspension options, including goal post-like arms fitted to the floor, wall or ceiling.Low noise, centrifugal double inlet fans are driven by an external rotor motor. The powerful fans are capable of providing enough airflow to create an effective seal across doorways up to 4.2m high or 8.4m wide, when mounted vertically at each side.The 1Rebel gym at Victoria is part of the 1Rebel group which has six locations across London. It offers three pay-per-session fitness concepts of either Reshape (treadmill and weights), Ride (bike / nightclub experience) or Rumble (high intensity boxing training). The new concept in boutique fitness was designed by Giles Dean and James Balfour, son of previous Fitness First owner Mike Balfour.

The aesthetic design and high quality performance of the Rund air curtain from JS Air Curtains made it the ideal choice to complement the imposing blend of traditional and contemporary architecture at Beaufort House, a prominent building in the City of London.The large commercial property has around 4,000 occupants passing through the entrance atrium each day. The constant use of the double door elliptical air pod made the drafty reception area cold and uncomfortable. Four, two metre high, Rund air curtains were installed vertically at either side of the doors, to heat the air in the pod and create a barrier against cold air entering the building.Graham Powell, electrical director at building services engineering consultancy Thornley & Lumb, specified the air curtain requirements: “We have enjoyed a long history of working with JS Air Curtains. We were confident that four Runds, each with a heating output of up to 30kW and air flow up to 5,550 m3/hr, would comfortably meet the needs of Beaufort House’s large reception area. A key consideration in the specification was the aesthetics of the air curtains as they needed to merge seamlessly with the minimalist and modern interior design. The stainless steel Runds blend in beautifully.”Contractors Sykes & Son fitted the air curtains. Director Mark Baston said: “We found the Rund air curtains were as easy to install as the JS sales team was to work with. The Rund’s have been operating for over a year now with no problems reported.”The air curtains at Beaufort House are economically heated with low temperature hot water but electrically heated and air only models are also available.The Rund air curtain has an extremely attractive, cylindrical design and can be fitted with many different mounting or suspension options to tie-in with an entrance’s architecture. Beaufort House selected the stainless steel option although the Rund is offered in any RAL colour. Among the different mounting options available are round goal post-like supports that can stand across an entrance or suspend the unit from a ceiling or wall. It can be positioned horizontally above the door with chains or poles, or stood vertically at the side of the doorway as at Beaufort House.

In response to an unusual air curtain requirement from Accor UK & Ireland, JS Air Curtains has custom-designed an independently supported Rotowind air curtain to stand above the glass revolving entrance door at the Novotel London Paddington Hotel near Paddington Station.Accor, who own and operate Novotel, just one of its market leading hotel brands, needed to install air curtains to balance the heating requirement within the main foyer at Novotel London Paddington, which sits in an exposed position with strong winds around tall buildings in the vicinity. As Accor specifically required a horizontal air curtain, but feared the glass façade would not to be strong enough to support the weight of a standard product, technical services manager Didier Louis approached JS Air Curtains for advice. After reviewing the options, JS recommended a bespoke solution based on its 1.5m Rotowind air curtain for revolving doors, specially modified as a free standing unit supported by ‘goalpost’ legs.Having previewed JS bespoke air curtains at various premises, Accor was confident that the company’s design would blend in with the Novotel London Paddington’s unique façade. Didier Louis commented: “Our challenge was to find a product that could provide a high level of heat requirement but not be intrusive to the hotel modern interior design. It needed to match the building structure with a fixing solution above a glass top revolving door. JS Air Curtains came back with the answer that ticked all the boxes.”JS Air Curtain’s 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, this cold air is prevented from entering.The Rotowind’s curved air outlets can be tailored to any size of revolving door to provide a tight seal across an entrance. There are three standard mounting options. The air curtain fan unit can be placed above the revolving door with its air outlets blowing down inside the circular door chamber, it can be mounted above with its outlets blowing around the room-side of the door or it can be mounted in a suspended ceiling with its air outlets blowing around the room-side of the door.As the standard options weren’t suitable for the glass façade at Novotel London Paddington, JS Air Curtains worked with the client to produce a bespoke mounting solution. Legs fixed to the floor at the side of the entrance supported the air curtain independently of the glass revolving door. As well as bespoke mounting systems JS Air Curtains can also integrate services such as CCTV, motion detectors, smoke alarms and emergency lighting into an air curtain.The Rotowind is made of aluminium profiles and zinc plated steel panels and nozzle, finished in structural epoxy-polyester white RAL 9016 as standard with other colours available on request. The low noise centrifugal double inlet fans are driven by an external rotor motor with built-in thermal protection and provide five speed selection.
