THE EXTRA QUIET DOOR AIR CURTAINS FROM TEKADOOR
WHEREVER LOW NOISE DEVELOPMENT IS REQUIRED.
For decades, the trend towards ever smaller, more inconspicuous devices has been decisive in the field of air curtains. At the same time, entrance areas in modern architecture increasingly became entrance portals – mounting heights or air outlet heights of air curtains are sometimes 3.5m and above. This not only leads to an increase in energy consumption, but is also detrimental to comfort. Increasing air outlet heights also require higher unit outputs, which in turn are synonymous with an increase in the noise level of air curtains.
In line with architectural requirements, the units became more and more powerful – and thus more noisy – while their dimensions became smaller and smaller. This trend now had to be counteracted.
TEKADOOR sets a new, technically up-to-date standard with the development of the “SILENCIO” series. Compared to standard units of the same design, these series are up to 10 dB(A) quieter with the same shielding performance and thus the same air volume. With maximum sound pressure levels of 51 dB(A) (“SILENCIO”) and 52 dB(A) (“COLUM SILENCIO”), these units create pleasant comfort wherever people work in acoustically and climatically sensitive areas. These sound reductions are based on low-speed EC fans, a modified heat exchanger, aerodynamically optimised air outlet blades and various sound-absorbing insulations inside the air curtain.
POSSIBLE APPLICATIONS FOR MANY DIFFERENT INSTALLATION VARIANTS
Door air curtains of the “SILENCIO” series are excellently suited for the retail sector and are offered as freely suspended display units or as cassette units for flush ceiling installation.
The upright design version of the “COLUM SILENCIO” unit group can be found wherever a particularly low noise level is required as well as an elegant appearance that integrates as well as possible into the existing architecture.
These are cylindrical air curtain units in a particularly pleasing column form. Since the connections of this series are usually “invisible” through the floor or through the footprint of the units, integration is particularly possible in the modern, architecturally particularly sophisticated all-glass portals.
But it is not only the external values that are decisive for air curtain units. For the user, it is not only the appearance and comfort that count, but also the running costs. These are naturally defined by maintenance and consumption costs.
To minimise the maintenance factor, these series are also equipped with a service-friendly micro-intake grille that takes over the filter function. The unit does not have to be opened to clean this ‘filter element’. A simple vacuuming or wiping from the outside is sufficient – without the need for service personnel. And, of course, without follow-up costs due to constant periodic renewal of any filter mats.
WE OPTIMISE YOUR ENERGY COSTS
To optimise consumption costs, all air curtain units of the “SILENCIO” series are equipped with a programmable electronic 5-step control as standard. Consisting of a control panel with graphic colour display and a control board built into the door air curtain unit. Operation is via a multi-function wheel. The operator can choose from several operating modes depending on the application. For example, automatic operation with door contact control and cool-down protection via room thermostat. The various operating states, fault messages as well as date and time are shown in plain text and with symbols in the display. This means that the system is also easy to operate for the end user.
Of course, our Silencio air curtain units as well as all other TEKADOOR unit series – not only these particularly sound-insulated series – comply with the current technical specifications and regulations of ErP and are also certified by the German TÜV-Süd.
