Industrial air curtains and a new unit heater from Sonniger is available exclusively in the UK from Turnbull & Scott Engineers, Hawick.

The current product range includes the “Water Fan Heater” as well as the commercial and industrial air curtains “Guard” and “GuardPro”.

The Water Fan Heater can be easily combined with all current water based heating systems. The perceived noise level for the device is very low and its lightweight of between 11.9 - 16.9kg with 10-70kW options for powerful output within commercial and industrial settings.

Due to the weight of the system it reduces the amount of installers required to fit it. At present, three models of the water fan heater are available.

Air Curtains: ‘Guard’ and ‘GuardPro’ protect against heat and cooling loss

Despite constantly opening doors and shutters the room temperature in commercial and industrial properties is targeted to remain constant. Two of Sonniger’s air curtains prevent uncontrolled heat loss: the commercial air curtain “Guard” and the industrial air curtain “GuardPro”.

These are designed for use in both entry and exit areas in all sizes of commercial and industrial buildings. They differ, in particular, in terms of their air output throw: “Guard” can generate a throw of up to 3.5m, “GuardPro” can cover up to 7.5m.

As a result, the “Guard” air curtain is recommended for use in standard commercial applications with a lot of public traffic - such as retail outlets and shopping centres, however, it can also be used as a protective curtain in production facilities where oily substances, chemical vapours and other potential air pollutants are used. Three variations are available: water, electric and ambient.

The “GuardPro” industrial air curtain is suitable for creating a protective barrier against heat loss at building entrances. It prevents cold air from entering the building from the outside thanks to its precise orientation.

The “GuardPro” can be used without heating in summer to prevent extreme heat from entering, whilst also protecting against dirt, dust and insects. Its energy saving attributes make the “GuardPro” ideal for use at entrances and exits in storage facilities, factories, and other large-scale commercial and logistics areas.

Two performance categories for this model are available (150W & 200W) and it can be mounted both horizontally and vertically. The “GuardPro” is available in both water and ambient.
