Spring is just around the corner. Restaurants everywhere will be opening up patios so that customers can indulge in outdoor dining to enjoy the weather. Unfortunately, outdoor dining isn't always as pleasant as it might seem when diners have to battle unseasonably chilly weather and bugs. Fortunately for restaurant owners and design engineers, you can create a space that allows for the most enjoyable outdoor dining conditions.
Air curtains can save building owners a lot in both energy and infrastructure costs in retail, industrial and commercial refrigeration applications. But designing air curtains for maximum savings can be a challenge if you don't do it every day.
It's time for another valuable webinar by Schwank on infrared heating and air curtain design. This time, the folks at Schwank are focusing specifically on auto garages and fire stations, which come with their own unique set of challenges.
Air curtains are a critical piece of commercial building design for certain applications but many building designers aren't sure what the best practices are for incorporating them.
Note: Schwank will offer a webinar for PDH credit on April 15, 2018 for engineers interested in learning more about infrared heating and air curtain design in these applications. The registration link is at the bottom of this blog.
Schwank is offering a PDH webinar next week for design engineers. The webinar covers how the new Schwank air curtains can save energy by keeping conditioned air in buildings when doors open.
You pass through air curtains all the time. They're mounted above doorways to create an air seal in grocery stores, restaurants and bars, hotels, nightclubs and even in some homes. This webinar will show design engineers how to help building owners save energy (and money!) by keeping conditioned air in the building when the doors are open.
It seems everyone in building design these days is looking for energy savings, lower carbon footprints and better comfort levels for building occupants.Installing infrared heating and
I’m not one for fancy window treatments. I can’t even describe the shades in my own house. What’s a cornice? How did those Romans get their own special shade? I do know a little about the sun’s azimuth and we can discuss fenestration all day. From an HVAC point of view, the idea of hanging cloth over a window is to keep the sun’s energy out of the occupied space. In fact, people have been using curtains for thousands of years to define space, create privacy and to keep the sun from heating indoor space. The first curtains many centuries ago were made from animal hides placed over doorways.
