Air Curtain Manual Reaffirmed

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. — The Air Movement and Control Association (AMCA) International Inc.’s Publication 222-08 (R2012) — Application Manual for Air Curtains has been reaffirmed by AMCA’s air movement division.

The publication is intended to familiarize readers with air curtain units and covers air curtain unit theory, components, testing, certification, ratings, construction, applications, benefits, selection, purchase, installation, and maintenance.

When properly applied, an air curtain unit can maintain the environmental integrity between two distinct areas, affording clear unobstructed egress and ingress. More specifically, when areas of different temperature are separated, or when perimeter openings are protected, an air curtain unit can provide energy savings, increased comfort levels for customers and employees, increased safety at busy doorways, a decrease in equipment maintenance, and a more sanitary environment.

By reducing the infiltration of outdoor air, the primary heating or air conditioning equipment will work less, resulting in reduced utility costs. These cost savings may very well offset the initial cost of the air control unit in a relatively short period of time. The energy savings may also reduce a building’s overall environmental impact. AMCA 222-08(R2012) is available at no cost at www.amca.org.

For further information regarding the application manual, contact John Pakan at jpakan@amca.org.

Publication date: 04/30/2012
