One example of this is evident in drive-through windows, which are growing in popularity as people's lives become busier. For employees operating these windows, prolonged exposure to harmful vehicle emissions, insects, and extreme temperatures can pose risks to their safety and well-being.
Installing air curtains above these openings creates a clear division between indoor and outdoor environments, effectively blocking the infiltration of fumes and insects. Remarkably, air curtains achieve this without causing strong air currents that would blow away paper money from customers' hands.
Furthermore, air curtains can be easily installed on walls using readily-available tools and connected to a conventional wall socket, eliminating the need for hiring contractors to set them up.
In industrial or commercial settings where workers frequently pass through interior and exterior doorways, high-speed automated doors can pose various safety hazards. These hazards range from doors closing too quickly on workers to forklift trucks colliding with doors, causing contents to fall on employees.
In situations where keeping a door closed is impractical, such as refrigeration rooms, air curtains prove invaluable. They effectively segregate environments while allowing doors to remain open during operational hours.
Another safety advantage of air curtains is their ability to dry floors, significantly reducing slip hazards that often lead to accidents in industrial workplaces. Areas with cool storage adjacent to warmer loading docks are prone to ground condensation, creating a potential safety risk. Air curtains equipped with on-board heating coils can effectively minimize this hazard.
