Air Curtain is an equipment which generates a high speed air barrier between the outsides and the insides of an opening to prevent environment contamination from dust, temperature, odor, fumes, humidity and insects
It is inappropriate and unadvisable to install an air curtain smaller than the width of the door as there will be unprotected area on the sides, which will allow inside air to pass out and outsides air to pass in. This would contaminate internal area.
Directional vanes aid in improving efficiency of the air curtain’s air draft. Vanes are helpful to adjust air draft tilt to keep away strong air currents, dust, fumes, and insects or to lower the air turbulence, likely to take place from floor level due to Venturi effect.
Yes. All Acme Air Curtains are engineered to run 24 hours a day and all round the year, with minimum preventive maintenance efforts.
The movement of individuals or any material will not affect an Acme Air Curtain’s efficiency. An air draft will be created all around the profile of human being or object passing through it and will prevent the internal environment from contamination.
Yes, filters can be used in conjunction with suction grill or along. Filters are generally used when there is an excessive amount of dust and dirt in the air.
Yes, specially engineered models are available for this purpose. Kindly get in touch with us.
PVC strip curtains are not an alternate for air curtains. Strip curtains are physical barriers which tend to obstruct the passage of material through doors / openings. Material movement becomes cumbersome through strips and at times are responsible for accidents on shop floors. Generally, in day-to-day use, workers tend to tie up loose ends of strips on sides of the openings to avoid physical hindrances caused due to hanging strips, which lowers their productivity of material movement.
Automatic doors/fast moving roll-up doors are not a substitute to air curtains. For large workspaces with ample openings a combination of air curtains & auto doors can be complimentary to each other. A buyer can benefit immensely by using this combination in maintaining the desired workspace environment. For smaller spaces, air curtains alone may suffice.
Green building codes and ACMA* recommends air curtains over expensive air lock spaces. Expensive building spaces used to create locks, may alternately be used for some more productive activity or can be totally done away with. Installing effective air curtains offers same benefits as that of an air lock, but at a cheaper cost.

Pricing of air curtain depends upon the door dimensions, purpose of air curtain installation, environment conditions within which the unit has to operate, type of doors at the opening etc. Acme Air Curtains are customized to suit applications across industries.

Industrial Air Curtains deliver high to the very speed of air draft to withstand industrial environmental conditions. The construction and specification of the material used to produce industrial air curtains are such that it withstands the harsh and extreme environmental conditions at industrial production facilities.
A crossflow suction air curtain is more energy efficient over a centrifugal suction air curtain for given velocity and cfm air draft. Well-engineered energy-efficient components help further this cause.
The efficiency of an air curtain’s air draft can be determined by the uniformity of air velocity across horizontal points of the air draft and the floor-level velocities achieved for the given end use of the installation
To maintain a dust and insect-free production environment and prevent cross contamination

The length of an air curtain should never be shorter than the door width. The purpose of an air curtain should be clearly defined based on which the airdraft parameters are designed. Effective and efficient air curtains will have a uniform air draft and the average velocity across any horizontal point on the air draft will be consistent.
30 inches upward. Acme Air Curtains are custom-engineered units to suit any door dimensions till 40 feet height opening
Air Curtains are largely segregated into two main types: Industrial and Commercial Air Curtains. Further air curtains are classified by type of suction i.e. centrifugal suction or crossflow suction air curtains and by motor position i.e. side-mounted motor or centrally mounted motor.
Restaurants’ air curtains prevent food contamination and foodborne illness. We work diligently to provide sanitized air curtains that prevent the entry of various contaminants, including dust, odor, and insects.
Air curtains prevent environmental contamination from dust, temperature, odor, fumes, humidity, and insects.
Cold storage Air curtains that sustain proper temperatures are essential for protecting the shelf life of goods stored in cold storage and cold rooms. These air curtains keep internal areas sanitized and maintain the inside temperature under ambient conditions.
An air curtain will operate with equal efficiency on either side of the doorway. However, it is essential to remember that whenever installing an air curtain, the door should preferably open on the opposite side of the air curtain without rupturing the unit’s air draft. An exceptional situation can be, when the door is to remain open for a very long time. Depending on the site conditions, our team advises on how and where should the air curtain be mounted.
This depends very much on the site conditions and the space available above the door opening. Ideally, around two inches above the door is recommended – again, there are exceptional site conditions for which customized solutions need to be executed.
The average time required to install the unit on a firm wall surface is around two hours. This time may vary for installations on MS structures or Aluminum & glass panels.
