Vertical-type air curtain

Normally the air curtain is installed on the top of the door, but there are three different situations we can not use the horizontal type.

  1. For some special places, there is not enough space on the top, then we need the vertical type.
  2. For some industry factories and luxury hall, the door is more than 4m wide, we can choose two vertical-type air curtains on each side of the door.
  3. In order to save energy, we can use half heated vertical air curtain. So on the top of the air curtain no need heated function, as when people pass by, the half-bottom heating is enough.
