Open door
An open door has an huge impact on
the energy consumption
Unwanted flow of air
Warm, moist air enter climate controlled
area and conditioned air escape the
area.
Inflow of particles and insects
Unclean environment, poor indoor
air quality and discomfort
Open doors
When a door opens the pressure and density
difference between the inside and outside air
leads to an exchange of air - warm, moist air
enter top third of the opening and cold air
escape bottom third.

No barrier
Nothing that hinder
particles and insects
from entering.

Case study laboratory– Sävedalen, Sweden


Solution
Installation of Frico air curtains in
frequently used doors
Function
Collect air and gather it into a
laminar and unified air beam.
Alternatives

Plastic strips is a safety hazard due to the


low visibility and the bacterial impact.
They quickly get unclean and break easily.

Current protection – sliding doors


The sliding doors protects well when the
door is closed, if programed correct it
opens and close fast.
Improve the visibility

By replacing the plastic strips with Frico


PAEC air curtains you get an
uninterrupted view.
Ice building

Inflow of warm, moist air lead to ice and


frost building which generate frequent
defrost and service along with safety
hazards.

Reduced ice and frost building by


restraining inflow of warm, moist air with
a Frico PAEC air curtain.
Key benefits

REDUCE RETAIN RESTRAIN


Reduce the size of an opening Keep the cooled air Hold back the warm air
Frico air curtains reduce the opening size and
thereby restrain the warm, moist air from
entering controlled climate areas, at the same
time conditioned air is retained in the area it was
intended for.

Air barrier
Reduced infiltration of
particles and insects.

Temperature rises

Huge temperature rises inside the freezer


room without any protection when the
door is open – outside temp ~34°.

the inflow of warm, moist air is restrained
and the cool retained in the area it is
meant for – outside temp ~34°.

Why choose Frico air curtains
Impulse

The combination of correct air


velocity and air volume gives an
optimized impulse
Sound

Low sound levels by having the sound


bounce off the ceiling.
Outlet grille
A powerful, laminar and uniformed
air beam with low turbulence and

EC air curtains

+ By applying EC-technology Frico apply


GREEN THINKING.
The EC-motor allows for step-less
control of the fan speed, giving the
possibility to optimized fan-speed
and energy savings in every
installation.
EC air curtains
The power saving is not only at maximum power, but also
especially in lower power operation dependent on demand.
PAEC has 0-10 step-less control of the fan, in the diagram
only four (4) fan settings is presented.
