18kW High Velocity Warm Air Curtain 2121mm in White for Above Door Mounting (max. 2m door width) BN Thermic HCA2-18
The white HCA2-18 High Capacity Air Curtain, part of BN Thermic heating range, will provide your shop with an ‘invisible barrier’ when placed above a door, protecting customers from the outdoor elements whether it be hot or cold. It offers 9kW of welcoming heat output that will be sure to delight those walking into your shop, both with its protective temperature barrier and its sleek, white satin-finished design.
Please Note: For a BN Thermic HCA2-18 air curtain to provide an effective air barrier, a high air velocity is required. The resulting noise output must be considered. For this reason, we do not recommend HCA2 air curtains for smaller shops or where people are working in close proximity to the entrance.
It can be controlled via the SystemX control (to be ordered separately) - up to 12 air curtains can be controlled from a single point.
It reduces heating costs during winter by utilising high-tech heating elements to deal with any ‘chill factor’ to warm the airstream and offset any chilly breezes. Meanwhile, during the summer, it will intake any warm air and churn it back into your building. It is an absolute must-have for commercial premises of all sizes that operate an ‘open-door policy’ all year round, and additionally will minimise the encroachment of insects or pollutants.
The materials used are advanced to enable the fine balancing act that an air curtain provides; a 1mm steel case and aluminium outlet grill for optimised functionality, finished with an epoxy polyester coating. All BN Thermic HCA air curtains are supplied with a control box for remote mounting and, when required, a thermostat can be connected to the control box, which will then control the heat output while the fan runs continuously. The thermostat has to be ordered separately.
With a length of 2121mm, the BN Thermic HCA2-18 will more than comfortably stretch past the top of a 2.0m door width, ushering in customers old and new with comfortable temperatures that they will reward with their loyal patronage.
