Bespoke air curtains for London hotel

JS

JS Air Curtains has designed and supplied three bespoke air curtains to harmonise with the stainless-steel and glass fascia of the Park Plaza County Hall Hotel in London. They are round units of polished stainless steel and were designed with engineering consultancy Hilson Moran and architect BUJ Architects. The reception area is glass fronted, so the air curtain had to look attractive from all sides, leading to the choice of a polished stainless-steel design.

Two air curtains are mounted above doors either side of the main revolving door at the Addington Street entrance. Each is nearly a metre long and can provide up to 12 kW of heat using electricity. A third air curtain is installed above the side-door entrance and has an electric heater providing up to 22.5 kW.

The air curtains were mounted directly onto the glass walls by installer Essex Electrical Group using specially produced stainless-steel brackets. Exit signs are mounted on the them.
